Good news from the doc...

After nearly a week with no phone call about my test results, I finally caved and called. Somehow, I had been forgotten about. Surprise surprise! Luckily the nurse I spoke to was extremely nice and concerned that I had not heard from the doctor. She apologized over and over and promised a phone call by the end of the day.

My doctor got back to me and reassured me that the cyst on my ovary was extremely normal- it was a follicular cyst and she said that this was actually extremely good news that things are working correctly down there. All my blood work came back normal and she canceled my ultrasound in three weeks. I'm just going in for a regular appointment and we'll go from there. She did tell me that I indeed have a small Fibroid tumor on the very back of my uterus and she reassured me this was no problem for conceiving.

I'm a little annoyed that the nurse practitioner I saw gave me incorrect information. She really made it seem like the cyst was not normal and even told me so. My doctor assured me that the cyst was very normal and probably was NOT the cause of the annoying pain in my abdomen. She also reassured me that there was only 1 Fibroid tumor...and not 2 as the NP originally stated. Just what I need- someone to blow things out of proportion more than I already do!

So...I'm staying positive and praying and hoping that this will be the month. I keep dreaming about the positive sign on a pregnancy test but have a huge fear that I will never see it. But again- remaining optimistic and hoping to relax a bit....I wish it was easier.

For now...I'm remaining entertained at home by watching "The Unpoppables"- has anyone seen this show...crazy stuff with balloons- fascinating!

  1. Brooke,
    I'm so happy to hear that things are better than you thought they were! That's awesome. I know (from experience) that remaining positive is easier said than done. I will tell you this though....remember I told you about how I now had a "plan". Maybe you need that, a plan I mean. I can say one thing...having that plan led to a positive preg test for me without even needing to activate the plan.
    Soooo yours is coming! I know it
