Scheduled for 3rd c-section and in labor? .::*U&}i{&Me+3*::. 3 kids; 1 angel baby; Virginia 2764 posts

Ok so I have a question and here is some background..this is my 3rd pregnancy, first two were c-sections. With my first it was failure to progress. My water broke at 40w6d I went in contracting and they started pitocin to bring them closer and get everything going. My contractions were 2-3min apart and off the charts, yet I felt nothing. They upped the pitocin and waited..I was not dilating and he was not tolerating the labor well. They were surprised that I was not in an ounce of pain. With my second the OB I had did not want me contracting at all, well I went in to hospital in early stages of labor at 37w5d and 5min later water broke..so within 15min I was in OR.

I am now in a different state and am 37w2d. I went into the office Tuesday feeling "off" lightheaded, dizzy, shaky. All vitals were fine. Then I felt back labor all day yesterday while at work. I tried pushing fluids, tylenol, sitting, walking and nothing helped. After 3hrs I called the office. They were about 5min apart. They told me to go home and count them and try to relax and keep pushing fluids. No biggie. Well a few minutes later I get a frantic call telling me to go to the hospital that they did not realize I lived an hour away.I get there and get all hooked up. I am contracting every 5-6 minutes. They start to intensify and get to be 3min apart. Her HR when I was put on the monitor was 200-220 and holding. Doc comes in and tells me I told you Tuesday if you were not hemorrhaging that everything was fine. WTF. And then the nurse asks me if I did cocaine earlier. REALLY? He then tells me I am going home as my cervix has not changed. Well I tried explaining to him AGAIN(i saw him tuesday) I have NEVER dilated past a finger tip. He said he would not deliver me until I was bleeding, my water broke, or I could not talk through contractions. I explained to him again that my contractions have never been painful with past pregnancies and that I am an hour or more away from the hospital. He then starts to try and convince me to get my tubes tied because the divorce rate has gone up...at this point I was in tears. I know I have time left but I am scheduled for my c-section in less then 2 weeks. I have been contracting for over 24hrs now. My question is what kind of risks are there with me contracting this long. My doc is out of town so I am stuck with this joke till monday. I have also been vomiting and unable to eat or drink much. He told me not to come back to the hospital

I feel like he is not listening to me..he is treating me like a child. What is ridiculous about this whole thing is I work for a doctors office associated with this hospital so I do all I can to not be a difficult patient. But I feel like this is not right...I dont feel right..

Hope this makes sense I know I am all over the place, please excuse spelling and such :)

I don't blame you. You have every right to refuse his services. I'd drive to a diff hospital. Or request the on call from a diff office.

I have called around to other hospitals to see who would take my insurance with my being an employee of this place it seems like I can only go to this hospital. I will be requesting a different on call. Time to be difficult :)

Why would the nurse ask if you've fine cocaine? Do you have a history of drug use or something?

Contracting itself is not dangerous, many women have pre labor for days or weeks before they give birth. If the baby is in distress that can be dangerous to them. If you're concerned I would try going into the hospital and asking to see the resident ob instead of going to another hospital.

No I don't have a history at all, if I did it would not have offended me.... They were asking because of her elevated HR. I understand women are in labor for days and weeks but I am concerned because of my previous c-sections and the two different incisions. My youngest just turned two a few days ago. They were so against me laboring last time
