When I learned about pregnancy, the term was 3-4 weeks. Every day, week, I was preparing for the fact that there would be difficulties with registration in the antenatal clinic.
I already knew what I would have to face: a test with a test, a round of doctors, endless queues, etc. In addition, I was ready for the fact that they would send me for additional tests and ask the LCD about my medical history. associated with the thyroid gland.
When the period was 6-7 weeks, I went to the antenatal clinic. I deliberately went so early because of thyroid. I thought that I would be sent for some additional tests in connection with the diagnosis. My local doctor was on vacation, and I got an appointment with another specialist.
After examining me and taking the swabs, the doctor sent me home, saying that the term was still too short. I just received a bypass list with a list of doctors whom I had to go to the clinic in the place of residence.
Change of district doctor
Having seen enough of my district doctor and having heard the stories of my acquaintances about her as a not very good person, I wanted to change the doctor to whom I would trust to administer the pregnancy.
Another doctor I had when I was on vacation liked me a lot. And with a fighting spirit, I went to the head of the LCD to ask for a change of doctor. I knew my rights. The law said that I could choose the doctor myself.
From the manager, I heard the words that I was very upset: The workload on the sites is large. If the doctor you want comes by himself and says that he agrees to observe you, then change it. The fact is that I asked such a question to the doctor for the first time, she sent me to the head. In general, everything is as usual in our country. Some are sent to another office, the second to the third, etc.
Having burst into tears, I decided that for now let everything go on as usual. If my doctor really pisses me off, then I’ll make trouble and demand replacement.
Another problem that I encountered when registering was a change of passport due to a change of name after marriage. It would seem that there is nothing terrible. There is a copy of the passport and marriage certificate. But it turned out that everything is not so simple.
After the visit to my precinct office, I was announced a list of necessary papers and certificates for registration. A few days later, I brought the necessary documents.
I was asked for a form 3 from the housing office about a residence permit (and suddenly I would change it) and a certificate from my endocrinologist.
I needed to pass the hormone TSH and make a fresh ultrasound of the thyroid gland. After some simple manipulations, I brought everything I needed to the local doctor. And then failure awaited me again …
The doctor also demanded a conclusion from the endocrinologist that I could carry a child, that there were no contraindications. Well, Christmas trees, sticks, I thought! Is it really impossible to voice it all right away?
In the last visit I was handed a whole heap of directions for analysis. The doctor promised that after their delivery and the final certificate from the endocrinologist, they would put me on record. I hope that finally it will happen!
