My friend was pregnant and having a lot of pain in her belly. Somehow she knew something was really wrong with her pregnancy, but once she was going to hospital every time and doctors kept saying everything was fine, she let it go. When she completed 8 month she went to Poland and found out her baby had died in her tummy 3 month ago.
bad doctors are everywhere, please don`t generalize!
i feel sorry for your friend :( i can`t imagine that happening to me.
i only just recently found out what was wrong with me when i was pregnant. i couln`t understand why i was having such a severe morning sickness while other pregnant women would have gone through it months ago and i was still feeling awful and the doctors here didn`t tell me anything, didn`t want to help me saying it was normal (?), were not happy that i was on sick leave encouraging me to go back to work while all i was able to do was throw up all the time and sleep. a few days ago i did some research on the internet and found that i suffered from hyperemesis gravidarum which is a pregnancy illness affecting only about 1% of pregnant women and is far worse than normal morning sickness. the doctors know only little about it and it pains me cuz i know how hard it is and i know there are women who had to terminate their pregnancies becuz they could not take the severe nausea and vomiting anymore, they were dehydrated in hospital and not being understood! i really just wanted to die myself but i bet if it was men that had to be pregnant and go through this, the cure for it would have been found two centuries ago! so all in all the bloody health system (all around the world) is seriously messed up.
i`m also not particularly happy about the fact that i can`t see a specialist doctor so easily. my baby has had a rash for over a month and i went to see a gp (immigrant gp from somewhere in asia, i couldn`t even understand what he was saying lol) 2 times and last time he told me that it`s viral and is gonna go away in a few days (ok not sure if viral rashes stay for as long as a month but he didn`t even know the rash was there for this long cuz he bloody didnt let me finish my sentence as i was explaning what`s wrong with my son!). well that was a week ago and every day joshie is getting more spots. next time i go with him to the gp, i`ll ask to be referred to a dermatologist.
ok i got a bit pissed off right now lol *goes to the kitchen to get some rice pudding to calm her down*
