i already plan on going to whatever hospital is near when i go into labor but the fact of not having prenatal care for the next 9 weeks scares me and i have had babies that like to stay in too long . (overdue) and that scares me more.

Did you let then know that you were previously receiving prenatal care and that you weren't someone who just realized a week ago that you were pregnant? Have you tried your local health dept? Have you thought about just sucking it up and going back to the doctor you didn't like?

i only asked how late they will accept a patient in a pregnancy. The local health departmetn only administers vaccinations and does std tests and pregnancy tests and gives out birth control. and Its not about not liking the doctor. please read my previous post at the bottom of the other page about what happen. because its too much to explain over again.

Okay. I don't know how yet, but I am going to try to help you. I actually know a nurse in Little Rock and I'm hoping she can guide me.



Hang tight, until tomorrow. I realize this is urgent and I'll do my best to come up with something for you.

thank you :) i really do appreciate it. its been kind of stressful. luckily its only been 3 weeks since my last ob visit (i was just turned away last thursday for a 2 week appointment) so im not too behind my appointments yet but its something that scares me that it could take a while to find someone to take me with an opening soon.

i am a huge pushover. its hard for me to get mean. thats what i have been told. i dont argue well either. thats probably why i just accept over the phone that no one would see me. the meanest i got was when they came and told me last week that they wouldnt see me after i drove all the way out there and that i would have to pay the full amount before they would even consider seeing me again. i was really upset and the woman who told me looked like she was scared of me!

Well, I will advocate for you and I'm not easily scared off by anyone. SOMEONE should help you and SOMEONE should be advocating for you. If I happen to need anything from you tomorrow, will you be around?
