Oh, honey. I don't even know what to say. I am so relieved all is well.

Hypatia

How horrid! *SO* glad to hear that you & the baby are OK now. It takes guts to blog the whole thing, when probably you'd rather not think about it at all!

Allison

You are lucky to have such caring friends, and a great husband to help pull you through that nightmare. I'm so sorry you had to experience all that, but glad that you and the baby are going to be okay. Have you considered looking for a different OB? Meaning, one that takes you seriously and shows genuine concern for his/her patients?

Cheryl M.

Thank God you and the baby are okay! Your OB doc makes me afraid.

Gretchen

Oh my goodness! I am so glad you and baby are okay. I have had more than my fair share of terrible pregnancy related hospital mishaps, but yours is just awful. I'd be seriously considering a new OB also. My first OB kept telling me I was exaggerating and everything was "perfect" right up until I had a grand mal seizure from the full blown ecclampsia I developed. Duh.

Jenny in Ca

wow, what an ordeal. I agree, your Dr. makes me afraid too. I can't believe he insisted on being right, without even being there to see you in person. I would really think about asking for a new Dr.

I am so happy to hear you are better, and that baby is fine.

monica

please, please for all your cyber friends out here- get a new OB before baby comes. anyone can make a mistake, but he was clearly not listening to you and not respecting that you could listen to your body. there has got to be a better one out there.

Lissa -- you are an amazing woman! Congrats on stating from the git-go what was going on and getting the right diagnosis .... praying prayers of thanksgiving for you and for your continued recuperation and the baby's health.

Hugs all 'round!

Hannah

Feeling HORRIFIED (and having some unpleasantly similar memories), remembering why I avoided hospitals for my last two births, and thinking that you really need a new OB. Who listens to you.
Just my .02.
So glad you made it home...

Beck

Good grief. Are you okay this morning?

Becky

Phew. So glad all's well that ends well :). I'll be thinking of you, Lissa, and hoping for no adventures whatsoever for the next 18 weeks. And marveling at your amazing powers of recall!

PS Eat more bananas (high in potassium), and I'm with the others on the "maybe check into a new OB" committee...

Elena

You have been mistreated and I was horrified too. This make my flight back from Europe with my 2 yo and my 4 yo and a stomach bug feel like a breeze. I felt so good at home too...

Charlotte (Matilda)

Please consider what everyone here is imploring you to do and find another doc. I knew what was happening to you as soon as I read "claw hands" because I accidentally overheard a conversation at Curves. (Those women talk about EVERYTHING!) I can't believe he missed it along with everyone else and that you were treated so badly.
