The Day A Miracle Did Not Happen

As I said in the last post, if I were to be pregnant it would be miraculous. Well, no miracles were performed today.

I went to C.ostco yesterday to get HPT's amongst other things and as soon as we got there, I felt squishy down there (I know, I'm sorry). So I went to the bathroom and guess who decided to come visit me? Yup, AF.

So I did not purchase the HPT's. I figured I didn't need to. Later on, the bleeding stopped. I think she's just fooling with me, and I don't like it. Then it started up again today. Then stopped.

I called Dr. I's office and spoke to her nurse (she is out until Friday). She asked if I took a HPT and when I told her no, she said to take one and call back. I was dreading this.

I couldn't leave work, so I asked LD's mom if she had any HPT's because I didn't want to have to wait until I got off work at 6 and further delay the appointment. I thought she would have some since she just got pregnant, so I took a chance by asking. She did. She got excited for me almost immediately, but I had to shoot her down.

It was negative.

As I knew it would be.

But I still hoped.

I called my doctor back and tried to make an appointment. They told me to wait it out. How long am I supposed to wait it out? I've already waited 2 effin' weeks. I got upset on the phone and the nurse said. "Well I hope it stops soon" to which I replied "It won't". She said she'd consult with the doctor and give me a call on Friday about coming in for blood tests.

Yay. (insert sarcastic tone here)

What a frustrating experience! You seem to be holding up well though.

I'm okay. Just disappointed.

But that "yay!" was to be interpreted with a high amount of sarcasm.

BLAH is all I have to say about the whole situation. No fun whatsoever. And hugs to you.

why are these nurses so god damned rude? I would think she would want to figure out what the problem is and not be so nonchalant about it. I'm sure if the roles were reversed she's be a demanding psycho.

I'm mentally smacking her for you.

I'm sorry the nurse was so awful. The lack of compassion people have never ceases to amaze me. Lots of hugs to you.

Stupid HPT's. When they are negative, they should shoot out chocolates or something! I hope the doc will see you tomorrow - you shouldn't have to wait. I'm so sorry. Even when you know it will be negative, you still hope. ((((HUTG))))

Mrs. Muelly- Good idea! I would love to be rewarded like that. I think some people would like it to shoot out chocolates if it were positive- but they don't count here.

Now where are the m&m's?
