I just got back from my follow-up appointment after being in the ER on Sunday. My doctor did an ultrasound to make sure everything had passed. Thankfully it has. I'm still bleeding a bit and having some cramping. She said I was tender and sore, so she gave me an antibiotic for possible infection. They had mentioned something at the ER about infection, but I didn't get care at that point. I lost my baby and that was all I was focusing on.
I was dreading this appointment. When I first got there, I had to take care of my insurance information since it had changed since I had been there last. I took awhile at the receptionist desk filling out papers. When I sat down in the waiting room, there was this lady sitting across from me. She smiled at me. I tried to smile back, but didn't feel like it. Then she asked, "Did you just find out you're pregnant?" I just stopped and couldn't breathe for a second. Then I quietly answered, "No." I turned away and couldn't look at her. Maybe she just found out she is and was excited or maybe she thought this was my first visit and that's why I was filling out all the insurance paperwork? I don't care. That was horrible. Why would you ask that in an OB/GYN office? My mom goes there. I could have been there for a PAP. She had to ask that question to someone who had just suffered a very painful miscarriage. I just sat there frozen. I wanted to die. When the nurse called her in, I started crying. It was bad enough that I saw a bunch of happy pregnant women there and pictures of babies everywhere...but why did she have to ask me that today? The worst part about it is that tomorrow I would be 7 weeks, so that very likely could have been my first appointment and I could have very likely answered, "Yes"...if my baby was still inside me. Sorry for the long rant. I just needed to vent.
