Do you have OB/GYN you can recommend? I've had it with my OB.
So it's past 12:30am and I've had a fever that's been hanging around 100.5 since 8pm. It was 98.4 around 6:30-7 and went as high as 100.9. Not dangerous, but annoying. I've done all of the things the googles has told me to do - tylenol, water, cold compresses, etc.
As I lay there in bed, shivering my ass off in sweats, I think, "Hmmm, my fever hasn't fallen in 4 hours. It's not high necessarily, but WTF? I don't want to take more tylenol w/o consulting a medical pro. Let me call my doctor."
At this point, since the temp isn't high and the baby is conducting his/her nineteenth Jazzercise class of the day, I see no need to rush myself to the hospital.
I pick up the phone and speed dial my doc, yet the phone co. is telling me the # has been disconnected. No worries - they're moving offices this weekend, and maybe I have a back line stored in my phone. I google the office and dial the main number. Still getting a disconnected message.
I call the OB dept. at my delivery hospital and they suggest I call my doc. I tell them the story, and they say that's the only # they have for my doc. Again, WTF?! The HOSPITAL with which my doctor is exclusively associated doesn't have an emergency # for my docs or midwives?! No on-call number? No bat signal, no carrier pigeons, no cell numbers or pagers? Nothing?!
So the kind nurse took down my name and # either she or the on-call OB doc will call me back.
Add this to the 4,509 other cons on my list about my OB's office.
