lolita39:  Well, first of all your baby is beautiful, and congrats to you. I am SO sorry for how you were treated. I cannot imagine how scared and upset you were and still are, and you have every right to be. I hope you find more relief soon for your blood pressure issues.

If I can ask, what do you think you could have done differently to avoid this? Going with a whole different office alltogether?

I’m so sorry that you had such a rough experience (I’m appauled at the doctors behaviours). But I am so glad that you got a healthy baby boy. He is gorgeous. Congratulations!

Wow, that made me want to cry! I’m sorry they treated you so badly. I’m glad that you were able to have Baby G and that you both made it through that.

congratulations on your beautiful baby! When you feel strong enough (but don’t wait too long) I would highly recommend calling a medical malpractice lawyer. What happened to you sounds like such gross negligence, it is unbelievable. I do t know where you are, but call the local bar and have them recommend some names. There are med mal lawyers who may be able to help.

I can’t BELIEVE they were so wanton about your complaints of swelling and sudden weight gain! Everyone who has any business being near pregnant women ought to know those are major symptoms of Pre-E! After every single appointment, my doc would always end with “and make sure you call us immediately if you experience extreme pain, bleeding like a period, or swelling of your hands, face, or feet.” Every time. Because those are all signs of serious issues. I’m so mad for you right now.

I second PP’s advice to consider a medical malpractice suit. This is really shocking.

So glad everything worked out and your son is such a cutie 😀

O gosh, I’m so sorry you went through this but glad you and baby are OK. I work in medical malpractice insurance so often roll my eyes at those who jump to find a med-mal attorney to sue for some perceived negligence, but if I’ve ever heard of a legitimate case yours is one! If nothing else, at least your doctors should be reprimanded and be made aware of their negligence so this doesn’t happen to anyone else!

What a cutie!

That is so scary about your OB!  I can’t believe that they would be so careless and the doctors at the hospital were horrible for not believing you!  I’m so glad that everything worked out okay in the end.

Congrats!  I’m so sorry you had such a traumatic experience.  I cannot even believe doctors like that still have their license!  That is some serious negligence right there and I would absolutely be consulting with a lawyer.  I’m glad you and your babe are recovering well now, though.

I can’t believe they only gave you ONE urine test! That’s insanity. I gave a urine sample at every single appointment. I was seen at a group practice, but I was taken care of well, thank goodness. I would definitely be seeking malpractice if I were you.

Sounds like you went to Hell’s Pass Hospital.  I’m so sorry!  How traumatic! 

I will tell you this:  I had to be induced for Pre-E when I had my daughter.  They kept me in ICU on Magnesium Sulfate for five days because that was how long it took for my blood pressure to stabilize.  They refused to let me go home before then. 

I just can’t seem to wrap my head around why they discharged you, when one of your VITAL SIGNS was out-of-whack.  I would certainly speak to a malpractice lawyer.
