So. . .

It's been a long trying day.  It started this morning at 6am when I woke up in such excruciating pain that I made my husband take me to the hospital.  Well, the hospital parking lot.  By the time we got there the pain was starting to lessen.  We waited in the parking lot for 20 minutes and the pain kept going down, so I decided to head home.  By 8am the pain was back to manageable again, and I called in a left a message with my OBGYNs nurse. 

Now, if you've followed my blog you know I have problems with this nurse.  She doesn't check her messages regularly, and then she usually ends up calling me back and telling me nothing of value.  I left the message at 8, and didn't get a call back from the obgyn until 4:30 this afternoon. You'd think if someone called and left a message complaining of severe abdominal pain, you'd call em back faster.  Sigh.
The phone call:

The doc called me as I was leaving work.  He told me that the beta was negative.  I get to go in to the doctor tomorrow for an ultrasound to see if they can figure out what is causing all this pain.  He's worried that my ovaries might have over stiumlated.  Yeah, not really excited for tomorrow.

Get this though.  He said to me "Just because this is negative doesn't mean you might not be pregnant.  It could just be to early for it to show on a blood test" Nice try doc, but I'm on to you!

And I'm going to use today's disappointment as another barrier to keep Hope in her closet.  Any ideas on how to find the french fry in this situation?


  1. I am so sorry Amber. I was really hoping this was your surprise BFP. I hope that they find the source of your pain fast and fix it!

  2. Ugghhh... I'm sorry. :( I hope the pain is due to something minor/harmless.

    You have a pretty name! Thanks for your comment and I'm now your newest follower!

  3. Hi Amber-
    Just found you via ICLW, great to have stumbled across your site. I hope the pain issue resolves and it is because you are prego! I don't mean to add to the open the hope closet but I can't help it.
    I read back a bit and noticed we are so lucky to both have thyroid issues, yay for us.
    Anyway, feel better soon!

  4. It sounds like you are dealing with idiots. I am of the firm belief that Doctors are here to serve us and if they suck and/or the office staff sucks you should shop around. Any chance you live somewhere where you could get a new doc? I mean... after today's u/s to make sure you are okay.
    Good luck...

  5. Oh... and I'm sorry about the BFN. :(

  6. Sorry about the BFN, though how freaking awesome would it be if Hope could come yelling out of that closet with a BFP in a few days?!!
