Hearing from OB at Army hospital

I went to the hospital at Fort Benning last Tuesday to get a blood test and the lab called later that day to tell me it was positive. They said an OB nurse would be in touch with me shorty to schedule my first appointment. Is it normal that I have not been called back yet? I am anxious to do another blood test to check my hcg levels because I had a miscarriage last month.

Re: Hearing from OB at Army hospital

  • You should call back and request another blood draw. The Benning clinics are notorious for not calling back in a timely fashion. I didn't have my intake appointment until 6 weeks and then wasn't scheduled for another one until 11 weeks because we were PCSing during my 12th week.

  • At most MTF (and civilian providers for that matter), it's pretty common to not be seen until 10 or 11 weeks, sometimes even not until 12, unless there are problems.  You could call back and request another blood draw but I wouldn't necessarily expect to be seen by a doctor until closer to the end of the 1st trimester. 

     

    Good luck, OP!  Hope you're able to get in sooner!

    You're welcome and good luck! I know how nerve-wracking it is when you have had a miscarriage before.
