I feel like a nut job- anyone else with me? I fear that everytime I call my OB's office, they are probably rolling their eyes and saying, "first pregnancy!"
I already had issues right from the start, I had to cold turkey a bunch of meds, and had withdraw issues- but all the phone calls were initiated by my general practitioner wanting to have my OB on the same page for my treatment of withdraw. (I have struggled with anxiety for years, and I work in substance abuse treatment, so I knew when my withdraws warranted medical attention)
Then I had to go and be a super hero and try to catch a stay dog at my work, because it almost got hit by several cars. Well, the little sucked took a big bite of my hand in the process, so I had to call and OK my anti-biotics and find out what happened if the dog had rabies.
Now, I am having occasional painful cramps. Almost like constipation, but not in the right spot. I can't figure out if my organs are all just in the wrong places now, or if this is bad. I have no blood, not even a smidge of spotting.
My co-workers who have had kids keep urging me to call and make sure it's okay. But I really feel like I will be "that patient" if I call over possible constipation. It doesn't help my mental state that my best friend, who happened to have a due date three days behind me, went to the hospital yesterday and was having a miscarriage. I am almost positive that my mind is jumping to conclusions because of that.
So...any advice? Do I call just in case, or wait until something more serious happens (like bleeding)?
