Off to my first OB Visit. I was sent to a Peri right away. The apt is at 7:45am and is 45 min away. Although I have to drop the minions off at their fathers house first (he lives in that town). Won't be back till 1pm. Please keep fingers crossed for me.
I was told several things today. They did NOT have my blood work or my Ultrasound from last Thursday. *sighs*
I was told I was 5 weeks along. But that was a general reply (like you are 5 weeks... not a 5 weeks and x day)
Also I have a cyst on my left overies. Only there is a solid mass on the cyst. They are going to keep an eye on it. Worst case it could be cancer and they remove it at some point. Best case it goes away but the solid part has them a little worried but not much ATM.
I start lovenox shots once a day, baby aspirin once a day, and my prenatal and 800mg folic acid 3 x a day. but the last 2 I was already on.
Umm, The Dr was positive otherwise. My next U/S is in 5 weeks (uhhh) to look for a heart beat and check on the cyst. So I have 5 weeks till I know if there is a heart beat (which is what's killing me)
I got another set of vials done plus some specialty test for anti E and something else. My BP was normal!!!!!!!!! (wasn't last appt). Also I get to do a 24 hour urine and she wanted to do some tests to make sure my organs are working well because of the previous PreE and HELLP and she gave one more reason but I was kinda fixated on the cyst for an extra second.
Yeah..... I admit I am one of those bad people and will not wait 5 weeks. I will slowly drive myself and BF nuts if I do. I think in 2 1/2 weeks I will tell BF ok when he wants to take me to the Dr. over the pulling and slight pain I get when I grocery shop. I know it is not a big deal but he keeps asking over any small thing (his first and it scares him a bit that I have issues).
5 weeks is a very long time to wait, but maybe that is a good sign that they don't need to see you any sooner. I know having to wait 7 weeks for our first u/s was torture! But we weren't having a high risk pregnancy so i didn't have any reason to worry. I was just super anxious!
I really hope the treatments they are giving you work well and keep you and baby healthy for the next 9 months. KUP
