bad ER service

when i was 19 weeks pregnant (im 28wks now), i was walking out of work at 10pm to go to my car. even though i was careful, i still ended up slipping and falling on my stomach (it happened so fast i didnt have time to fall on my knees). i started freaking out and crying, i called my fiance and told him im going to pick him up on my way to the ER because i didnt want to go alone and needed him to drive the rest of the way. i was so scared something happened to my baby, i was shaking.
The wait wasn't long to get into a room. first they checked heartbeat... 146 so its good. then i waited 2 hours for an ultrasound to make sure nothing was ruptured and see how the baby is doing.
at one point i saw my baby moving its little hand and fingers up to its head and i got excited cuz to me thats a sign the baby might be okay.. but the guy doing the ultrasound snapped at me "we're not here for the anatomy!".. i wanted to punch him in the nut sack... excuse me but ANY sign that my babys okay is going to get me excited because i had just waited hours for this ultrasound and spent the whole time crying and wondering if my baby was going to live!

i didn't complain about him because i understand people have a bad day.. and i figured maybe it was my hormones getting riled up about it. but after time elapsed, my boss, my family, friends and my fiance (whom witnessed it).. told me to complain about him because hormones or not, he should know better since he works with pregnant women. for the past 9 weeks, it's still been eating away at me.
when i was 18 (im currently 2 months shy of 25) i was told that i had issues with my ovaries (something all my female cousins on my moms side have), and that i would most likely never have kids, and the longer i wait to have any the less chance i have.. (only 1 cousin was able to have a child when she was 17 before removing them at 19). its in my charts that i have this issue... but the fact that i was only 19 weeks along caused much concern. if i lost this baby, i may not have the chance again.. so ANY sign of life on the monitor helped calm me down. well come to find out, my placenta hadn't move.. and still hasn't.

is 9 weeks too long to make a complaint?
