After my ectopic in January, I figured the doc office would be right on top of getting me in and getting me an early ultrasound. Apparently not. They did see me within a short time period, but no ultrasound until the 15th
They did a papsmear, took all of my blood and answered all of my questions. She tried to be very reassuring. But during the pap, I had some tenderness on the right side. My ectopic was on the left and I've been having consistent "pain" there since the ectopic, even though it's not really pain, more like ..twinges. I don't know if I'm more in tune to it 'cause I'm pregnant or what. Anyway, the right side kind of freaked me out when I felt it. It felt like she was digging her hand into my fat. Well, she was...but, it didn't feel like that on the left side! So I don't know what to think. I'm not bleeding, so that's a good sign. She seemed very optimistic, but they did last time too until they sent me to the ER with an ectopic. So..that's where I stand.
C'mon 15th. Sort of. I kind of don't want to see an empty uterus again.
Sounds like a good first appointment to me. Sorry they can't get you in to an u/s until the 15th though. It's hard to wait on answers. Did she give you any info about what to watch out for this time around?

Not really. She said that sometimes it "just happens". She really didn't seem concerned with anything I said... not like she wasn't listening, but that everything is okay. Also, I've come to be a pro on an HCG level and where I need to be and etc.. She isn't having me come in for an HCG reading, which I thought was weird. HCG is a reliable way to tell if your pregnancy could be ectopic...you know, if it doesn't rise like it's supposed too. I'm semi glad I don't have to go through every other day blood donations, but then that could have been something to ease my mind.
I'm a worrier, if you couldn't tell already..haha
I can imagine it's stressful to you.
So sending you lots of positive vibes, hugs and time speeding vibes.

I hope the 15th comes quickly and you don't have anything that causes you extra worry between now and then. No bleeding is definitely a good sign.
Do you know about how far along you are right now?
Doc said I'm 5 weeks 1 day on Friday, so 5 weeks and 3 days today. I read on here somewhere, a long time ago, that a lady had multiple losses, but when she got pregnant with a certain one, it felt different. That's how this one is. I don't know if I'm just trying to distance myself or if the lack of bleeding has me a little less concerned ...or if the fact that certain smells drive to the nearest sink to gag, but EVERYONE seems optimistic about this. Which would make it even more horrible if something bad does happen.
I'm just hoping...but keeping it on the pessimistic side. I guess I'm trying to not think I'm pregnant, so maybe I won't be hit so hard. I know that's horrible, I should be enjoying this, but...I just can't. Not yet.
