So I called the OB office to get in for my 8 week check and the bitch told me that because she "had a wheel' that tells her how far along I am, I wouldn't be at the 8 week mark until Dec 16th and that's the soonest I can get in. Um, if the insemination was on October 21, I will be at 5 weeks this week, which means I'll be 8 weeks on Dec 2nd. I don't want to wait until after week 10 for my first appointment. That's almost the first trimester!
Not to mention she wouldn't give me decent time frame. It was either dead middle morning or dead middle afternoon. No way of working around that. I tried to tell her that since I don't get maternity leave, any leave I have to burn to go to these appointments takes away from what I can take when the baby gets here.
I plan on calling back and basically demanding to get in before my 10 weeks is up, but I have to wait until I've cooled down.
*Edited to add that I just tried to call back and now the bitch isn't even answering the phone. OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO that pisses me off more.
