My OB has a new receptionist. She’s only been on the job for 2 weeks, but she’s super slow to start. I’m trying to give her a break as she’s just learning. Anyway, she didn’t book my 12 week ultrasound after my appointment last Thursday at 9 weeks.
I called Wednesday to remind her. She never called me back.
I called again this morning.
She said both ultrasound clinics have no openings until my 16 week mark, but they could put me on a wait list.
I told her that was unacceptable. My Nuchal translucency ultrasound has to be done between 11 and 13 weeks, 6 days. I suggested she get me on that wait list and then talk to the OB bout WTF to do. I also suggested she go ahead and book my 20 week anatomy scan. She said she would talk about it with the OB on Monday as he’s not in the office today.
I understand she’s new, but this lady needs more confidence! It’s a well known fact that the ultrasound clinics always have extra appointment slots (or else how did I get in for IVF monitoring?). They can’t just deny someone a screening appointment – can they?
Next, I contacted my fertility clinic for a Diclectin prescription. This week has been my worst so far for nausea and puking. I couldn’t keep anything down yesterday. Since I’m on a business trip for 3 days next week, I need some relief or else I’m not going to make it!
When I went to get my prescription filled there was some mix up where the one Fertility clinic doctor wasn’t found in the system, so my insurance wouldn’t approve the claim. I waited for an hour, then ended up paying the full prescription amount (just under $200). The pharmacy is supposed to sort it out and call me back later.
Today has been a wack load of unnecessary stress for this prego.
I’m asking the Universe for some help to:
- Get the ultrasound appointment booked on Monday with an appointment time that fits within my schedule (as I’m out of town for business 4 days over the next 3 weeks).
- Have my insurance cover the cost of the meds and place the refund in my account early next week
Deep breath Lindsey. It will all work out.
