Waiting

This past week was labor day weekend and I was lucky enough to get the whole weekend off. I also worked from home on Friday because I had that "urgent" doctor appointment that I called to make 5 weeks ago. Luckily I got in when I did, because my doctor is on vacation again for 2 weeks off on an adventure in Alaska. Sooo jealous.

I ended up not working much of Friday because my mind became occupied with news from my doctor. Possibly nothing major, possibly something major, possibly just an annoyance that may not present any major complications, but possibly, we won't know until something happens. Sooo annoying! Doctors are supposed to just know and tell you and then make you better!

Some things doctors should not do are suddenly start talking really fast while doing a pelvic exam and repeatedly asking "are you sure you aren't pregnant?" and then run out of the room, leaving the door wide open, coming back with a machine, then throwing off the lights, spreading FREAKING cold gel on my belly and then say, "we need to do an ultrasound."

DUH! you seem to be doing it already! Thanks for the warning!


Measurements were done.
Blood was taken.
Notes to radiology were sent.

And now I wait. Wait for a call with an appointment to radiology so we can find out more. Is it Fibroids? Maybe but he didn't see anything specific on the ultrasound. Is it something more? Will it effect conception? Taking a pregnancy to term? We won't know until we know more details. And even then we may not know until we try and see if there are complications. So here I sit and wait. Trying really hard not to read articles online. Because as my doctor said, "you'll get freaked out. " (He's so helpful)

UGH. Yeah, don't read online. Those are always the freakiest stories. I'm crossing my fingers that it will be nothing (lots of nothing fibroids in my family, though some that aren't nothing, too...) and hoping you'll let me know as soon as you can. :( Scary.

Here's hoping it is nothing.

Oh, Cherry, I'm so sorry you're going through this right now! *hugs* Hang in there!

Um...I think you need a new doctor. Yours seems to be cut from the same mold as Gina over at "Just Another Day."

I hope everything turns out for the best!

Oh Cherry, that is so frustrating! I know the feeling of just wanting to know, dammit, so that you can just deal with it and start doing whatever needs to be done.

Crossing my fingers for you!
