Doctors are stupid

I wanted to write about this while it was still fresh in my mind. My wife's ob/gyn is a bit of a spaz. He frequently changes his mind about stuff and forgets some of the things he's said. For instance, ever since my first daughter was born, he has gone back and forth repeatedly on whether my wife should get pregnant again.
After Sydney was born, her doctor was talking about when we were getting pregnant again and was reluctant to put her on birth control. Tonight, my wife went to see her doctor again and said he wasn't really comfortable with the idea of her having another baby ever. Um. What??
Something I've come to realize is that I really do want another baby. I don't want one to replace Sydney because that just flat out isn't possible. I want another baby because I want another baby. Period. And now my wife's schizo doctor is toying with our emotions by going back and forth on this. We weren't planning on having another baby yet anyway. But we WERE planning on having one. Chances are he'll probably flip flop back again next time she goes to see him. It's ridiculous.
That's all I've got for now. Just wanted to vent about that nonsense.


  1. Doctors are stupid, when you ar ready to have another one contact a good maternal fetal or high risk clinic.

  4. Hello I stumbled upon your blog tonight. I am so very sorry for your loss. I lost my daughter 5-14-09 at 31 wks.

    Your wife should be referred to a high risk OB for a consult visit. They will go over her history & will tell you whether or not a future pregnancy is safe & give you all the statistics you will both need to make an informed decision. They will also monitor your wife more closely through her possible subsequent pregnancy since she would be considered high risk.

    Your doc does sound like a spaz and I would DEFINITELY switch reg Ob as well.

    Once again I am so very sorry.
