Frustrated (vent)

Hi guys.

I feel so frustrated with my doctor and my HCG levels. My doctor's office takes days to call me back after a test, and then leaves a message for me to call them! Of course, they never answer the phone, so I can never find out what's going on.

I also feel so upset that I'm still getting positive HPTs. I know that it takes a while for your HCG to go back down, but I really want to get on with my life. I'm so worried that I'll need drugs or surgery to straighten things out.

I just wish someone could tell me what is going on! It's been almost 3 weeks since I was told I was miscarrying. I'm still spotting. My body still thinks I'm preggo. When will it END???

I'm so sorry that you are feeling so frustrated. It must be driving you crazy not to be able to get a hold of the doctor's office.

I never tested my levels or even knew anything about that after I delivered Lily. My breast leaked which was cruel but my body no longer felt pregnant. Although I would often get flutters in my tummy (which was probably my uterus contracting) and I continued to touch my belly, expecting her to be there.

Hope you get a hold of the doctor tomorrow.

I'm so sorry you aren't getting answers! IF you can ever get a person on the phone (like a receptionist) just tell them you will hold for the nurse or dr who has your results. Even if they are in a meeting, or with a patient, you'll hold. I always had to do that to hear anything.

I don't know if this will make you feel better, but I'll share anyways. I had a loss at 9 weeks, and had a D&C to "remove the pregnancy", but I spotted for about 3 weeks, and had positive hpt's until at least 4 weeks post D&C. I'm not sure how different things are though if you m/c naturally or not. Hang in there!

I am so sorry that you are dealing with such jerks. Is it possible for you to go to the office and demand your results? Is there anyone that you can file a complaint with about the shoddy treatment that you are receiving? I hope that things get better for you soon.
