miscommunication? Feeling a little lost.

 I went in for my 36 week appointment Monday, My doctor said I was 1 CM dilated and 70% effaced. She also said that the baby was still very high up, but making progress because she could touch babies head.    So I said to her ?that?s strange at my 32 week appointment Jodi (the nurse practitioner) said that the baby?s head was very far down, I was almost fully engaged, and I was already 70% effaced. Did he/she move??    Jodi I guess didn?t write any of that down or even mention it.    My doc said at barley 32 weeks and that soft she should have been told immediately, she doesn?t think anything is wrong but she is putting me on high risk just to be safe. OK FINE.  All I have to do is a NST every week until I give birth and get another ultra sound?   I am just feeling like there is a lot of miscommunication going on, and while I trust my doctor completely my faith is highly lacking for her staff.   I was also suppose to see a high risk ultrasound tech at 18 weeks for a scan, (I have RA they wanted to check and make sure things were fine) but her staff never once told me that the doctor wanted me to see him. Luckily their ultrasound tech is smart and did the tests anyway and everything was normal.   I feel like the entire situation could have been prevented with one word COMMINUCATION. I guess im feeling a little lost, and scared that something could have gone wrong!   How would you feel in this type of situation? Not that I can do much now but what would you do?

    I'm a little confused as to why you now have to have weekly NST because you were 70% effaced at 32 weeks and you're still 70% effaced at 36 weeks.  But that's neither here nor there.  

    I would be concerned about the office's communication problems too.  Since you trust your doctor, I would talk directly to your doctor about all concerns / questions that pop up in the next month or so.   If you call and are given someone other than your doctor to talk to I would request to speak to the doctor and/or call back when the doctor is available.   I may even still talk to that person and call back to speak with the doctor to see if you get a different answer.

     I actually just made a list of questions for the doctor and I will be calling tomorrow, you read my mind. Just worries me a little that one office can be that unorganized i guess.

    I would definitely take my own notes at each appointment, and refuse to see anyone but the doctor.
