So I had a doctor's appointment scheduled for Friday the 13th at 4:10 p.m. I was excited to meet with the doctor, find out where I was, at least schedule an induction date, etc. So I walk into the office and the office manager was looking at me kind of funny. Here is the conversation:
Me: "Oh sorry I'm a little late."
O.M.: "Oh, did you have an appointment because we're not seeing patients today."
Me: "Yes at 4:10"
O.M.: "Well he's not in, when is your due date?"
O.M.: "Oh, so you need to see him! Let me see what I can do." (She left to talk to another doctor)
While she was gone I went digging through my purse to find the reminder card. Sure enough it said 3/13/09 4:10 p.m. The stupid receptionist scheduled me on a day the doctor wasn't even in AT ALL!!! She came back and I showed her the card to prove that I'm not crazy. She apologized up and down for the misunderstanding. She said none of the other doctors could see me because they are family practitioners and could not do the exam. She told me the doctor would be back in the office on Tuesday and scheduled me an appointment.
Needless to say, I was very frustrated. I didn't even know my doctor would be out of town. I would have been EXTREMELY upset if I went into labor and went to the hospital only to find out my doctor would not be there!!!! Oh well!
So we have been trying natural labor inducing techniques this weekend. We went on a nice big walk today and I think the only thing it did was give me sore legs!!!
I will update everyone on Tuesday after my doctor's appointment. The doctor said he would induce me after a week, but I am not sure exactly what day that will be! Wish me luck...
