Reprimanded

I rang and left a message at the Ob's office this morning. Apparently it's his theatre day today but he rang back within a few hours.

Without saying whether or not I should be concerned about the weekend's events, he gave me a lecture about not ringing him on Saturday. He was working all weekend, and regardless would have seen me immediately to allay my fears. He was very gentle but used words like surprised and disappointed and hard-fought pregnancy, and duly made me feel severely reprimanded.

I am seeing him for a scan first thing tomorrow morning. Then its off to see the breast surgeon for a follow-up - so its a full physical exam for me tomorrow. I hope I pass with flying colours.

I like a doctor who reprimands a patient for not calling when worried. He sounds like a keeper!

Sending positive vibes your way. Hugs!

Hope your scan goes perfectly...I have everything crossed for you. I spotted for weeks with my (IVF/ICSI) son--had a vanishing twin followed by a subchorionic hematoma that eventually went away. I had scans frequently, and despite the spotting, he got bigger and more active every time. The rest of the pg was completely uneventful...I wish the same for you. Sorry that you have any worries at all!

OH I will be thinking of you. It does sound like your doctor is wonderful.

Fingers crossed and prayers flying out into the universe my friend.

Love,

I hope so too.

I think I'm on the other side of the world from you - so I have no idea what time it is or when you go for a scan ... but I hope you do soon and it's wonderful news.

You have been through so much.

I hope all is well. When I experienced spotting aroud the same time it turned out to be some blood vessels close to the surface on my cervix, hopefully that is the case for you.
