A Weensy Bit Irked

Good Morning Humble Readers...

I love my OB.  He's great.  He's been very supportive through our losses and the testing we did last year.  After my hysteroscopy (to remove a uterine polyp), he told me, and put in my file, that I was contact him as soon as I 'achieve pregnancy' rather than having to wait for a referral from my GP.   

I knew he wouldn't send me for blood work until AF was officially late, which is why I waited until this morning to start pestering.  He knows my history, and silly me, I assumed* that I would be able to just pick up the blood work req from his office, go to the lab, and have my first appointment after the results were in.  Not the case. 

I can't get in to see him until Friday morning (and I have to try to juggle my work schedule to do it).  At that point I will get the paperwork for the labs I need.  Meanwhile, I'm sitting here wonderng if my progesterone is high enough and is low progesterone a contributing factor to blighted ova (both my losses were BO)?  I went looking for OTC progesterone cream yesterday, but no one in town has any.  Only by prescription.  Argh!

Also, of course I tested again this morning.  No eye-bending required to see the lovely blue line this morning.  I'm going to try a digital again later in the week.  Felt very pukey, too.  Yesterday I was a bit anxious, being that if AF was going to show, she would have done so, but there was no sign of the witch.  I'm feeling a bit crampy, mostly in the mornings. 

Because this whole thing still doesn't seem quite real, I couldn't bring myself to put up a floating baby.  So instead I found the one with the seeds/fruit comparisons.  I've also considered opening those books I bought ages ago... you know the ones. 

In other news... my laptop appears to have contracted some sort of a virus/spyware/malware something. It's weird, making it so that I can't use search engines (talk about annoying!). I go.ogle something and the list of webpages come up, but when I click a link it takes me to some ad list that is only slightly related to my search. I've tried using downloadable malware removal software, but it only worked once.  I think I'm going to have to take it in.  Lame!

I hope that you are all well, and enjoying ICLW!  I know I am!

* I know that assuming makes me an ass, and that me being pregnant does not automatically make openings appear in my OBs appointment book.  I'm still irked though. 


  1. As a computer tech, becareful what you download off the web thats considered spyware and malware removal tools. Lots of those are scams/virus themselves!!!

  2. Phooey on waiting! Have you tried Spybot Search and Destroy?

  3. Hmmmm. I have progesterone I could send you (PIO and suppositories). But you are Very Far Away, and I'm not sure it would make it before Friday. Also, I'm not sure if it is illegal to mail prescription drugs across national borders. Still, if you are interested, let me know.

  4. Congrats on the BFP and I will be praying for you!

    Happy ICLW!!

  5. Hooray for darker lines!! And poo for waiting. I was seeing an RE and not an OB, but they got me in for labwork within 2 hours of my call. It's not like it's so hard to draw blood!

  6. I hope there's an opening before Friday! Congratulations, hon! I'm praying for you and sending you lots of love!

  7. Happy ICLW! Wow! This is so exciting. Glad I stopped by here today! Can't wait to follow your journey.

  8. My favorite part was reading your footnote, "me being pregnant." Makes me smile for you each time I read it! :)

    Sorry you have to wait to see OB, that is a bummer.

    Do you have "Girlfriend's Guide to Pregnancy" by Vicki Iovine? My fav book from being PG.

  9. Did you speak with his nurse or just the scheduling desk? You might get further with your favorite nurse.

    I know nothing about computers. Zero!

  10. Hey, I gave you a bloggy award. Go check it out!

  11. Congratulations!!!! Though I understand how nervous and anxious you feel, I hope things will be A-OK very very soon!


  12. can you phone your GP, get them to req the bloodwork today and send a copy of the results to your OB so they are there for friday?

  13. Good luck with sorting out your laptop.

    Hope everything works out well for you!

    ~Stopping by for ICLW!

  14. Congrats on the positive tests!! That is fantastic news! I hope your progesterone is where it should be! I will check in with you and excited to follow your journey! Happy ICLW!

  15. I just want to say how utterly estatic I am for you!!! I'm truly hoping you follow my footsteps and that this third time's a charm.

    Lame is right with you computer. I hate that crap!!!
