When I was pregnant with SiM I had some GI issues which at one point made me loose my appetite. I tried to handle it on my own but then decided to mention it to my OB.
Imagine my annoyance and disappointment when instead of giving me some suggestions, pills, heck-just emphathy, he told me that I gained 3 lbs in 4 weeks and that's more than enough. He also suggested I take up exercise because all his patients who exercise have easier pregnancy and post partum experiences.
A couple of weeks ago I took my daughter to pediatrician for her shots. When the MD asked if I have any questions/concerns I told her that my daughter's appetite went down dramatically and would the doctor have any suggestions/recommendations for me.
MD's answer- "Your daughter's gained weighted since her last visit so I wouldn't worry about her appetite".
Do these doctors listen or only read charts?
