Well, I had a scary weekend. As some of you know from my last post, AF showed up in full force & I was in alot of pain. I wanted to just double over in pain & cry. As the day (Sat)went on.. I was taking Tylenol & finally Midol (which took forever to help with the cramps). Here is the TMI part..(sorry)... I had been going to the bathroom comstantly & at one point when I wiped, I noticed that I was passing an extremely large blood clot (larger than a silver dollar). I became really scared since that had never happened before. I spoke to my mom & she brought up the idea that I could've been having a miscarriage. So I went to the ER & they ran some blood tests (did a urine analysis--which they did using a mini-catheter--sp?---OUCH!!). Everything came back normal & I wasn't PG (which eased my mind). The ER DR just seemed to think that since I haven't had a period since May 27th, the lining had built up & that's why I was in alot of pain. Since I passed the blood clot..the pain has sub-sided but I am extremely tender from the catheter. He did prescribe some naperson (sp?) to help with the cramping. So I was in & out in a couple of hrs. I am to follow up with my gyno in a few days.
By the way, I also got my information packet from the RE. I can't believe all the information that want to know. Also, I had to call them already to verify my appt. They had welcome letter that had a different date down than what I was told for the 1st appt. But it was typed up wrong. Can you imagine?? All the stress from a typo??
Well, I thought I would just keep you updated!!
