I would totally be going bonkers too! Hope you can get something scheduled soon.
Sandra, not everyone is getting Monday as a stat. Some doctors are open, schools are open although Robbie has a PD day. I would be calling.
I would love a midwife but as I am high risk there is no way I can have one - even though I am friends with 2 (neither are in Edmonton though).
Heather - midwives have just been covered under Alberta Heath for about a year but they are covered now. I know in Ontario they have been covered for years, not sure about other provinces.
I hope you get in soon! I'm frustrated for you. ;)
Seriously I can't imagine how frustrating that is for you! I'm not one to call and bug my docs office (or anyone in general) but i think this definitely justifies you annoying them for answers. Or find another doc that will get you in for u/s. GL! Crossing my fingers you'll get an answer soon. :vibes:
All of the websites I've looked at for Edmonton midwives state, "If you are choosing midwifery care, you are choosing natural childbirth". They all say if you are looking for pain relief, doctor care is recommended instead. Looks like Alberta isn't as cool as BC when it comes to midwife care ;)
Just called the doctor and it is closed. I guess technically it is a Stat. My DS has preschool today but my DD doesn't have Kindergarten.
Must wait til tomorrow............gahhhhhhhhh.......
As for High Risk, ya, they don't like taking super high risk do they. I wasn't high risk until DD was breech...naughty girl. :P
