What? You were excited (just a little) about a positive pregnancy test?
Not if Nurse nice-but-useless has anything to say about it.
A snippet of our phone call with blood test results:
Nurse nbu: Soooo... you decided to get a blood test today after all.
Me: Yes, because Dr. N. told me to. Remember I was telling you how my last m/c was at 6 weeks and he wants me to start on progesterone a.s.a.p.?
Nurse nbu starts talking over the end of my sentence...
Nurse nbu: Well, it's a positive result, but the hcg number is low. It's only 58. It should be around 500. We'll retest on Tuesday to see where it goes.
Me: Okay. Well, not that this necessarily means anything, but my positive pregnancy test with my son was several days after I expected my period.
Nurse nbu: (with HUGE amounts of doubt in her voice) Well... yes, It could be possible that you got pregnant later than you think you did.
(More talk about prenatals and baby aspirin and proges.terone.)
Me: Okay, well have a nice weekend.
Nurse nbu: (with "sympathetic head tilt" voice) Yooou toooooo.
Now, I know that she doesn't want to give us tragic infertiles false hope, but REALLY now... Could she at LEAST have said "we'll hope for the best" or something like that?
