Going to my OB today…

and I want to express how frustrating it is to find a perinatologist who truly cares.  I had my MFM appt last Thursday and I wasnt bad but I wasnt thrilled either.  The MFM basically said a TAC is usually placed when a woman has had 2+ 2nd trimester losses or has no cervix.  I said I had to disagree with that since one loss to IC is too many.  Why cant these dr’s give out the information on a TAC to their patients and let them decide what is best for them.  Give them the pros and cons of having a TVC vs TAC and then they can decide.  The drs are not the ones that endure the pain and torture of losing a baby.  I wanted to literally die when I lost my Olivia and I refused to let that happen again.  I wonder if it were their mother, sister or wife in that situation would they act the same?  Just gets me soooo angry!!!  Anyway…I am going to just ask my OB if he would be willing to see me weekly for cervical checks since he does the same thing as these drs so anyway and I trust that he is looking out for my best interest plus he knows what I went through when I lost my daughter.  Lets see what he thinks but my fingers are crossed

    I hope your OB will let you do weekly checks! I’d be pushing for the same thing.

    I feel similarly about pathology testing when you lose a baby (when possible). I was told that usually a woman had to have 3 or 4 miscarriages before a doctor would be willing to really investigate any problems. I got VERY lucky that my OB was willing to do the pathology testing when we found out we lost our first baby. I know that isn’t a reality for many, many women. I don’t fully get why; it could really start giving people answers sooner than later.

    That is just awful that your MFM is not doing what you want done! You’re right, it should be up to the patient to decide. I’m so sorry for your loss…I just can’t imagine how awful that was for you. Hopefully you OB will step up and see you weekly. You are in my prayers!

    I am livid for you. I know TACs aren’t the go-to, but if it’s what you want done and you are fine with the risks, then I really don’t understand why they wouldn’t just do it.
