It's been a while.

Monday, February 18, 2013

It's been a month since I last posted. I finally made an appointment to see my ob/gyn. My last cycle was 88 days long. I gained 15 lbs during that time also. Obviously, this is not normal. I went to see her today. I had a list of questions in my head. I got back to the room and the nurse was taking my vitals. Her eyes about bugged out when she took my blood pressure. She didn't even tell me the bottom number. The top was 170. I got into the gown (as much as I could, seriously that thing is made for like a size 6!) and waited. Another nurse came in to check my bp, in case the first one had made a mistake. 140/110.*I should mention that before I had my second daughter my bp hung around 116/62. Since I had her it has been high, around 140/90, but never as high as it was today.* So of course I am freaking out in my head. My Dr comes in and does the exam. She says everything looks fine, but I need to go see my family Dr. I tell her I haven't had a family Dr since I was 12 and her eyes about bug out. She wouldn't let me leave until they got me in somewhere. So tomorrow I have an appointment with my new family Dr. I am so nervous about the whole situation that I can barely eat. I plugged in my food for the day so far. I have only eaten 320 calories at 2:30 pm. I usually eat that for breakfast. I feel like I'm going to be sick. UGH!
On top of everything else, I completely forgot to ask any of my questions or discuss the possibility of us having another baby. I am high risk due to a clotting disorder and several miscarriages. Of course my bp will now affect us trying.
THIS SUCKS! THIS SUCKS! THIS SUCKS! Ok there was my hissy fit. Now on with my day.

    Waiting as long as I did wasn't completely by choice. She won't see me til at least CD80. I honestly thought it was 90 though. It is definitely not good news, but it is making me do something I have needed to for a very long time, see a family dr. I'm hoping that he will go ahead and give me a full physical so that if anything else is wrong (hopefully not!) we find it and fix it. I am really worried but trying to be positive.

    This is not good news! I should scold you for waiting 88 days to see a dr, but I won't.
