Bonita, that makes me sooo mad on your behalf that he didn't believe you!
I hope that the blood test shows something so that you can get some answers. You should not have to go through this again just because your test came back negative (after bleeding for 3 days!) You got 10 positives! That's not a fluke!!!
Okay good! Did they say how long it would take for the results to come back from your blood test?
He said a few hours. Such tortured hours.
I saved Sunday mornings test which was the darkest test. I just asked my 7 year old how many lines she saw. She would have no idea how many lines I would have wanted her to say, and she would not have understood to tilt for a very faint or imaginary line. She said "I see 2 lines". That has got to mean that I was at some point pregnant!
This is how the conversation went with my doctor.
Me: I have had 13 positive pg tests
Dr. Why did you take so many? They must be faulty because you can't be pg after your tubes were tied. It must be a faulty test.
Me: 13 faulty tests?
Me: They were different brands from different stores. Even a FRER. They do not lie.
Dr. I suppose it is remotely possible, but I just can't believe it. We will do a blood test to be sure.
Me: I did not get my tubes tied because I do not want another baby. I got my tubes tied because I had preeclampsia, gestational DB (he interrupts)
Dr. I remember. You definitely don't need to be pg again.
That just sucked the wind out of me. I just wish I had gotten more answers.
(((HUGS))) That sounds like a bad appointment, like he wasn't really listening to you, and didn't believe you. I'm sorry he was so dismissive. I don't think you're crazy at all. I saw the lines myself on some of the tests you posted on DYSAL.
That convo with your doctor makes me wanna come smack him. I hate that he dismissed you off like that. People DO get pregnant with their tubes tied, just because he's never seen it before doesn't mean it's not possible. You should have shoved your pregnancy tests up his nose. Hmph.
Aww thank you. I am having a rough day today. I am just so hoping that the blood test comes back positive, so that I can get some answers. I am not sure what I will do if it was negative. I know in my heart that at least some of those pregnancy tests are positive and that TMI - you don't pass fist size clots for a normal AF.
Sorry to be blunt, but I am grumpy right now.
