Argh!

When you come in for your first OB visit...as the last patient of the day...tell me that your LMP was ~7-8 weeks ago...then tell me that you were on a category X drug until 2 weeks ago...and I scan you and see 15 week twins...

This does not make for a happy doctor.

Thank-you.

Head, meet desk.

Oh crap....Well, at least she was honest about the drugs - hopefully!

So sorry :(

You know, it's sad, but my reaction is that at least she's seeing you for the first time AFTER all this happened, so no one can legally blame you for her being on drug X.

@grumpy...wish that was the case. But there are documented cases where the OB was successfully sued for a birth defect presenting with late/no care.

Our throw-away mags have monthly columns on legal suits against OBs. Depressing but interesting reads.

I'd abort. Too bad I gather that's not what she's going to elect to do.

Why is that "too bad"? Chances are her babies will be fine.
