Patient presented to the ER today stating that the OB clinic told her 4 weeks ago that she was 6 weeks pregnant. They based this off of her last "period". Today she states that it feels like she is having contractions. I called labor and delivery and told them that she looks like is about term not newly pregnant and she is having contractions. The midwife says, "there is no way those are contractions. She is only 6 weeks along. Just send her home." Well, I did not do that. Instead I ordered an ultrasound. The results were a breech 39 1/2 week baby that looks like it is about to deliver. I called labor and delivery back and they took the patient to emergent c-section due to the baby being breech. The moral of story is: not everyone knows what a "normal period" is.
