A Good End to a Doctor's Visit...Amazing, I Know!

Saturday night, we were at a wedding in Birmingham.  Towards the end of the reception, I started having really, really bad stabbing pains on my right side.  I gave it a little bit, and they just wouldn't go away.  By the time we got back to the hotel, I had taken two Goody's (which my husband SWEARS by, I don't get it), and was crying it hurt so bad.

I tried to sleep it off.  I woke up Sunday fine, but by the time we were at lunch, they were back.  The pain was shooting down my leg.  I was finally able to get home and take something, and spent the rest of the day in the bed.

I clearly freaked my family and my husband out a little after all of the problems I've had, so at their encouraging insistence, I called my regular OBGYN yesterday, just to see what they thought.  They got me to come in for an ultrasound today to make sure it wasn't anything major.

And amazingly, I left my OBGYN with good news...that's never happened! Haha!  No cysts at all...they could even see the baby follicles starting to grow, but no cysts around them.  Their best guess is that I might have had a small cyst that ruptured this weekend, which was causing all the pain.  It didn't do any damage though, so we're ok.

Plus, I got to see my OBGYN for the first time since the second miscarriage in December.  She really is the BEST doctor.  Let me just say, if you don't trust your doctor, especially after the past year we've had, it's just not going to work...I learned that first-hand about a month ago. :)  I have 100% confidence that she's doing everything she can to look out for ME... that is so refreshing after this experience.  She also agreed with our decision to stop the drugs, which made me feel so much better about our decision.  So just all around a great experience!

I was pretty proud of myself too...I haven't been in that ultrasound room since the day we confirmed the first miscarriage, and I had been dreading going back.  It wasn't bad at all though!  I think it's just a matter of being so comfortable with the nurses and doctors in that office that I didn't even think about it when I was in there.

Yay for GOOD days in all of this!
