I had my bi-monthly check up yesterday. As usual I have to dragged Gabz with me and drive for myself since hubby is working. I realized yesterday how inconvenient it is to drive when my belly is so big. It keeps bumping on the steering wheel and quite difficult to get out of the car. LOL!
Oh well, yeh i went to my doctors appointment and when I arrived the lady at the reception told me that the doctor is behind schedule for 45 minutes. I said oh well, since I am already here, I will wait. She is not my primary doctor, but since this is a big clinic, they required you to see the rest of their doctors in case that doctor is the one on call during the day you will deliver the baby. So, I was there for like 45 minutes and Gabz is sooo bored already. One lady came out and told me that the doctor will be late for another 45 minutes !!! WHAT? I have been here for 45 minutes and you tell me that I have to wait for another 45 minutes? (she is not even sure if it would only be 45 minutes more) My time is not spent to wait for that doctor the whole day! She said if I want to reschedule for next week, i told her NO because that would be too close for my another schedule.
Why are we always on the mercy of this doctors schedule? I understand that they have other patients to attend too. But I just hope that they will do something in case this kind of thing happened, like calling you before hand that the doctor will be late for an hour and a half? At least you could make adjustment on your part, rather than sitting in their office doing nothing. And take note you are not allowed to be late this long...5 to 10 minutes is max that you could be late, otherwise they will not entertain you.
Sorry, just venting out....but that's life!
