Hopefully the rest of the test's will come in soon.

    So really I am no further ahead in my quest, and not sure why he wanted me to come in today.

    We say "get a new doctor" but at least things are starting to get eliminated!

    Haha - ive been doing the same!

(Keep in mind that it's a small town with crappy equipment, when we were pregnant with Jackson, the heart listener thing wasn't working properly and it was "taped" shut to keep the batteries in OMG really?!) It got to the point where she started asking, "any pain, cramping, bleeding?" and I almost started to cry. But she finally found it and it was healthy at 150ish. Gave me a form to go do some bloodwork and said she would book my next ultrasound...and sent me on my way. They called the other day saying my ultrasound is scheduled for March 1st and told me to come pick up my form at the office.

    So after work today, I run in, grab the form and head home. When I get home, I'm just quickly reading over it and I notice where it says "Reason For Exam" beside it says "fetal abnormality". So immediately, i'm thinking wtf and start getting upset. I show my husband and he tries to calm me down but I just keep getting more and more upset with questions swirling through my head, "well if something was wrong, why didn't she say so?" "i have to wait a whole frigging month to go to the ultrasound to see what's wrong?" etc etc etc. Hubby tries to hug me and tell me that it's probably nothing that's a big deal or else she would have said something. (Oh, also keep in mind that this doctor is just my family doctor and I kinda find her clueless and not so thorough....we go see a proper OBGYN doctor at 20 weeks -ish in Chilliwack, which is 30 minutes away) But he has to go to work, so he has no choice but to just leave me crying in the kitchen. (P.S. I have been VERY emotional this pregnancy and can cry pretty easily these days lol) I calm myself down a bit and decide it wouldn't hurt to just call the doctor office and see what they say about it.

    So I call and it's one of the medical office assistants who knows me and is super nice. I ask her about why it says that when my doctor never informed me of anything being wrong. She's like "Oh, well...*pause* umm, how do I word this properly without worrying you at all. Umm, hold on a sec" Puts me on hold....and I assume goes to talk to the doc or another office lady? Comes back on the line after a couple minutes and says something along the lines like this: "Well, it's just sort of standard that they write something like that....it's just an ultrasound to check for abnormalites and make sure the baby's growth and development is normal...etc etc etc.....you had a normal pregnancy the first time right? so don't worry...it's not something to worry about" Ya she said something like that, I said thank you and hung up.

    Uhhhh first of all, if that was the case, why not put a "TO CHECK FOR...." instead of just scaring the **** out of a pregnant woman by just writing "fetal abnormalities". I don't need to get all worked up and stressed out if it's just "standard". *sigh* So, anyways, I hope it's just that and that there really isn't nothing to worry about. Until I'm way bigger and can feel the baby kicking/moving, I can't help but be paranoid during the first months of pregnancy. One of my best friends has had two miscarriages and a lot of other complications (long story) and I just can't help but worry till it's over and baby is out and healthy. *BIG SIGH*

    End of rant. Thanks for listening

    P.S. No package today...wahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
    TOTALLY had the same thing happen to me. With Alexa and she's perfectly fantastic. I'll post in a bit why I hate Valentine's. ..and it has to do with babies!

    AWWWW Meshell, I'm sorry you had to deal with that worry. I'm sure all is fine, but I'd be having a chat with that DR when you see her again.

    Oh, MeShell...

    How stressful! I can COMPLETELY understand and I SO feel for you. A couple of things to remember:

    First of all: If it were of serious concern, they would have you in right away; they would have you in for your ultrasound asap (like later in the day or tomorrow sort of thing), and they would have bumped up your appointment with the OBGYN, or referred you to a different one if they couldn't fit you in.

    Second: Your doctor is a general practitioner; She does not really know about these things, which is why you SHOULD see the obstratrician - they are specialists.

    I know it is hard not to be stressed, but I am quite confident that if they had serious concerns, they wouldn't book your ultrasound a month away.

    That is quite standard to have an ultrasound around that time to ensure everything is developing properly, etc.

    The most important thing to do is try to stay calm and relaxed (Easier said than done, I am sure)...Your increased heart rate affects the baby, so have a nice bath (not too hot!) and do whatever makes you feel calm and relaxed.

    I hope you can find some peace...

    and for those who were wondering why I will not be riding the next few trains - it is simply

    have too much on my plate right now that i don't even want to log on some days, just awaiting for a couple of trades to come in and then I will be taking a much needed break away from SC - I will still update the Scan Zone, but other than that I will not be on here much to chit chat, sorry in advance - I am sure coyote will keep me in the loop
