Constant Reminder Part 2

The phone rings at 8:30 this morning.

Clueless receptionist chick: "Good morning, this is X Ultrasound place calling. Is She there?"

Me: "This is She."

Clueless receptionist chick: "Hi, we're calling to confirm your ultrasound on Thursday."

Me: "I actually had a miscarriage."

Clueless receptionist chick: "Oh, I'm sorry. We'll cancel that for you."

Are you kidding me? That's awesome. I really needed another reminder of the fact that I SHOULD be having my 18 week Ultrasound on Thursday - that there should be a beautiful baby growing inside me.

And the best part is that the ultrasound at which my miscarriage was discovered was THERE. Don't you think that they should have canceled the 18 week appointment after they discovered that my baby was dead? Sorry, but that pisses me off.

Offices really need to learn to take that extra step to make sure things like that do not happen. I am sorry they called you. It is so hard to see these constant reminders. I live on a military base and I see the SAME pregnant people, day in and day out. Sometimes I just want to scream...ya know? Hugs to you :)

Receptionists in these offices are not compassionate at all. Yours is not the first time I have read that an office forgot to cancel a follow up appointment because of a miscarriage. It's frustrating, and I don't think there's been a time that I didn't want to scream at the receptionist since my miscarriage.

thanks so much for stopping by my blog. I'm so sorry to hear about your loss. I know how tough it can be...despite the child you have. Every pregnancy holds a place in your heart.

That stinks. :( I hated having reminders like that, especially, when, like you said, they should have already taken care of canceling your appointment.

OMG-yes-this is yet another thing that should go on the list of what dr's offices should not do. Oy!!! It's so frustrating!
