I would just call DH, but it's 3 am where he is and he's sleeping.....

So today I got news that we were pre approved for the house...YAY, right...So I am going about my day as excited and nervous as you can get....in the most happy way of course...

I take my son to his T-ball practice, and I get back and listen to the voicemails...its my doctors nurse....she says to call her as soon as I get this message....only it's too late to call her back by the time I get back.

So here's the deal......I had an OB appointment on the 21st where I did the AFP (I think it's called) the bloodwork that checks for Downs, Trisomy 18, and neural tube defects....

Then on the 24th, I had my big u/s...so Im sure he just got those results in....but I dont know about the blood tests......

And because I can't just call her back up I have to wait until tomorrow...I don't have the kind of OB that just randomly calls his patients to check and see how they are...no news is good news....and if it's to reschedule an appointment, it is usually done by central appointments..

SO.....my mind starts to wonder (and worry) that there is something wrong with my baby....like on the ultrasound or maybe the results were higher than normal...or maybe he is calling to tell me I have to do lighter duty things because of the placenta being right on top of the cervix....Im telling you....if there is something wrong with this pregnancy, they can just go ahead and admit me into the nearest mental ward....

I can't stop crying......

Oh honey try not to freak out! It could just be something really small or even nothing but good news. Also I have heard more than one person say nurses have scared them by the way or tone used to tell them something. I hope you can get some sleep tonight. Let us know tomorow what they have told you.

oh sweety I am so sorry you are so worried I would be worried too, but i am sure everything is okay with your baby!!!! was your placenta low?? they could be calling because of that.

They could be calling for good news!!

I was told by my dr. today that the AFP test usually takes over 4 wks for the results to come in.

Itll be okay, you are in my thoughts and prayers okay!!!

Thanks girls...I hate sounding like such a train wreck.....Heather...yes placenta was completely on top of my cervix at the u/s...they can't put you on bedrest this early can they??? I don't have time for bedrest....I realize maybe it could be protein or a little sugar in my urine or a UTI or something....but this is beyond stressful....how am I going to sleep tonight???

I don't think nurses should be allowed to leave any messages that they called until they get the patient on the phone! And I do think they are allowed to leave good news messages-just not bad news, right? Ok I really need to stop....

I will be sure to let you know what she says in the morning...I would love to be sooo wrong and say that I worried over nothing, but I can't until tomorrow....hopefully I can say that.....

These ups and downs are killing me and I dont' even know why I had a tubal reversal and I never want to go through this again-EVER! And Im getting really sick with a cough and cold so far no fever and I am just stressed out to the max...All I would like to do is go and get a friggin hotel room by myself and let my ma take care of the kids for one or two nights...

I am so illogical and hormonal its' not even funny....Thanks for listening girls!

Smooches!

HUGS, I hope that you get can hear back from the doc first things this morning. You're right, they shouldn't leave message like that. One of the things I liked about my old doc office is she would just record a message to me and then I would get a call telling me that I have a message. I could retrieve it any time of the day. I wish all docs would be able to do that type of thing. Don't they know that pregnancy is not always so carefree and that people worry. ERRR Sorry that that happened. I really hope it is just to share only good news.

I JUST got off the phone with the nurse. The verdict is...complete pelvic rest unless I start bleeding or contracting then we are on to bedrest...Guess I don't have to worry about sex when DH gets back....I am really sick now with a cough and feel like garbage, but at least my little boy is growing and doing great! I can't complain! Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers!

Why oh why do they wait until the end of the day to call??? So you are waiting all friggin day to hear what the problem is....especially after a loss......it would be nice if they could prioritize by the level of emergency and who has had a loss before...*rolls eyes*

Anyway, all is well I'm just sick with this bug thing and really tired.

Thank you all!
