Has anyone ever had a feeling that all doctors/nurses are idiots?
I am justified for feeling like this(read on)
but starting to be scared that if something is wrong i will be treated like "a worried mum" and told its all normal.
When i was 24 weeks preg with my DS(18mths now), i had really bad stomach pains and knew something wasnt right, i went to emergency at 2am and they put me on the monitors and said i was having mild contractions but not to worry and go home.
The rest of the pregnancy i worried and when DS was born, i still felt things werent right. I was checked out a couple of days later and went home.
A week later my son was yellow, wouldnt feed, and had a temp.
I rang maternity and told them all the symptoms- they said it is "perfectly normal for a newborn", not to worry.
I was scared and stressed out, and then when his eyes started to roll back in his head i rushed to emergency.
Anyway to cut a long story short- my newborn had serious kidney reflux, and we nearly lost him.
We spent a long time in hospital and he still has ongoing tests and treatment.
I am terrified this preg. What if i know something is wrong and no one will believe me?
The doctors all think you are paranoid and say it is "normal", for mums to be worried.
Anyone have any advice for me- if i keep feeling like this im going to end up stressed and depressed!
Thanks for listening.
