Dr. P: My Hero!

I called my OB's office today at 11:30. I left a message for Dr. P and he returned my call by 1:15! (Note that my doctor calls me back in under two hours, while his nurse takes two calls and doesn't get back to me until 5:30 pm!)

As soon as I answered the phone, Dr. P practically shouts into my ear "And we're off! You must be nervous. You're nervous aren't you?" He really gets it. He and I devised a plan. I rushed to the lab today for a quantitative HCG + progesterone. I will have another draw Wednesday and a third on Friday. Dr. P told me when he would be in each of the three offices for the next week. He asked that rather than call the main number, I call directly to the office he is working at as he wants me to speak only to him. I'm to call him on Thursday to discuss the numbers from today and Wednesday. Once he determines that the bloodwork looks normal and things continue to look and feel normal on my end (read there is no bleeding in my nether regions) we can then discuss appointments, ultrasounds and the like. He doesn't want me to go through the hassle of registering as a pregnant patient again until we have fairly good reason to believe that we aren't repeating previous patterns. He doesn't want me to have to suffer through getting all of the "so you're having a baby" crap they give in those first appointments.

At this point, there is no more spotting. But I do have some cramps. Still, I know that my uterus is in the process of enlarging and every pregnant woman feels them. They don't last long. They aren't severe. Just...there.

Yet I will be ok. I have a solid support system in place. I'm ready to deal with whatever it is that comes my way. Unless it's actually a baby. That's the one thing I'm NOT expecting yet. The one thing that suddenly has me scared out of my wits. What will I do if I actually have a baby???

Congrats! I'm so glad your doctor is taking good of you.

I'm thinking of you and sending lots of prayers your way for good numbers.

I have to say, thats the one thing I am also not ready for. Actually having a baby.

I'm so happy your Dr is being so attentive!!!

What I hate, the gas pains that are so bad you are sure this is it, your about to lose it.
Dr. P sounds like a prince among doctors--glad he's giving you the care you deserve!

Such happy news and I hope the spotting has made its final appearance. Goodbye and good riddance....
