I went for my appointment and nearly had a heart attack He did the test, only after telling me that theirs are generally less reliable than the over the counter bought tests, and the line came up so faint!
He said, 'ah, maybe if you come back next week and we'll re-test?' thankfully it started to darken up and within a couple of minutes he said, 'actually, yes that’s pretty certain' LOL, yes I think 3 positive tests MAY say Im pregnant
LOL, if I wasn’t sick with nerves BEFORE I went in, I was practically over the edge by then
He then said that as my cycles have been irregular I'll have to have a scan to get a date, but he's provisionally put my EDD at 31st August and told me to get an appointment with the Midwife. I asked him a couple of questions, and he said im normal, big relief… uh whats normal? *sigh*
He then sent me on my way saying 'This is a happy time, dont eat Brie or shellfish'
Hmmmm, strange man! I already feel like im in the twilight zone without a mad doctor too!!
Im still writing this in my TTC journal don’t ask why LOL I'll transfer over soon to a pg journal. Maybe after Ive seen the midwife.
I rang the Community midwifes office this morning and told them that my docs told me to ring them, to see if I can get an earlier appointment than 4th Jan. I told them about my recent diagnosis with PCOS and she said someone would call me on Monday because they are really busy today as there was lots of home births in the night!!! Wow.
She said if im willing to maybe drive to the next village I might get a sooner appointment. I really hope so. I so need to talk to someone face to face to talk about cramoing etc. I mean, Ive read online and loads of women say that AF cramping is normal, as long as there is no bleeding and/or im not doubled over in pain (no and no) then its perfectly normal. That does reassure me a bit, but I want to hear it 'from the horses mouth' so to speak.
The doc did say that I'll need a scan to check my due date and hopefully at that scan they'll be able to check its all ok too.
I feel less nauseous today, I think its because I don’t feel so nervous. Im making a conscious effort to be calm about it and keeping busy, after all, if im like this now, then what the heck am I going to be like after however many months?
