Being pregant and experiencing abdominal pain is a worry do when I call triage and take a trip into the triage antenatal ward I do not expect to be spoken to so horribly! I have never had an internal examination so I was obviously feeling very nervous! The midwife put me on a feotal monitor, and after doing my ob another nurse re entered to ask me to 'take your pants off and everything, put that blue sheet down and lay down in the bed' no notice of what what going to happen prior to this I was shocked and immediately uncomfortable so I asked would it be okay if I waited for my partner to arrive because I'd never had anything like this done before, he should be 5 minutes, she shouted my question across from the room to the midwife sat at the desk and the midwifes reply was 'I'm not messing about I'll just get the doctor to do it' which I heard so I said I wasn't comfortable doing it, the reply from the nurse 'you don't have to have it done' quite nastily, my partner arrived and after he heard what had happened, disgusted we both left, still not knowing what the problem is. Absolutely disgusting!
