I went off my progesterone meds a week early, and went to the dr today. He was very happy with everything, and even told me I could do a little shopping long as I was in a wheelchair since he wants me to stay on my mod bed rest for one more week. And not to over do it, he said a hour or less should be fine.
So off to Target my happy self went, got a electric wheel chair, ready to shop. I really wanted to pick up the rest of the small things I wanted for the baby, and check out the clearance racks for next year. Plus, I admit I may have been going a little stir crazy at home. I have not been out to do anything besides dr's visits in forever. Nothing crazy happens, I get what I wanted, maybe some stuff I didn't need (baby shoes are toooooo cute) and head to the check out line.
I unload my cart and while the casher is ringing me out, she starts telling me how I should not be riding in a wheelchair. Its not good for the baby, I need to not be lazy, cause if I am active up till birth its easyer to recover. She knows what shes talking about she has had 3, worked right up till she went into labor. I shouldn't be lazy, I should leave the wheelchairs for people who really need them
I just sit there for a min, my mouth I sure is hanging open, and I didn't feel any, but I sure steam coming out of my ears.
I looked her in the eyes, and ask her, What hospital do you make your rounds at? What insurance do you go threw for your malpractice suit? She got all deference and says shes just trying to be helpful, that walking is the best thing a expected mother can do. I put my hand up and say, if you have had 3 kids, then you know how much horrible advice people give you, and if I followed your advice I probably would of had this baby at 28 weeks also. Not everyone has the same pregnancy and you should be ashamed of your self giving medical advice to someone you don't know. She told me I didn't have to be ***, cause she knew what she was talking about.
we were getting a little loud, I will admit. The head cashier came over to ask what was going on, I was so mad, I just asked if she would please ring me out, and I did not feel like dealing with a know it all, who was giving out horrible advice. She took over, rang me out, apologized and I took my bags and left. I am still mad as heck, but now I wonder if I over acted. I mean I feel like I should write the store manger and complain, but not that Target really has been doing that good lately with public relations so it most likely would get ignored.
