I had my “first appointment” today after work. I got there, peed in a cup, the nurse said the test was positive (yeah thanks for that), and then I sat and waited and waited and waited. For an hour I waited, the nurse finally took me to a room, and my OB came in, said he was going to send me for an ultrasound (apparently they don’t have a machine there) and asked if I had any questions. He gave me a piece of paper and left. Seriously?! It took me longer to pee into the cup than it did for my “appointment”. My hubby said the OB probably wants to make sure there’s a heartbeat before he continues on with anything because of the m/c last time. The OB said it’s to get the size and date the pregnancy. I just hope everything’s healthy!
By the time I got out of the doctor’s office, the ultrasound place was closed. Why couldn’t the nurse have given me the stupid paper and ask if I had any questions…and then if I did THEN I would sit around and wait for the damn doctor. It was honestly the most pointless “appointment” ever! He also said that I should try to make an appointment for the next week or so and then make an appointment with his office a couple days later. I waited over 2 weeks to get this appointment with him and I only got it because there was a cancellation. I don’t always work in town, so I better be able to get an appointment for after work or I’ll be not impressed.
On a happier note, I haven’t been sick since Monday. So I don’t know if that was morning sickness or a horrible 24 hour flu. It didn’t feel like a flu, and I had no fever, so who knows. I’m pretty sure I’m 7 weeks today, so we’ll go with it, and hope that I don’t have any more sickness.
