    Default Preg after 8+yrs but still not sure + GPs annoying!

    Hi
    as I am pregnant i thought i would post here
    i just don't know if this one will be the one as i have had an ectopic & 2 chemical pregnancies in the past, 2 failed IVFs and told we had no hope at all and maybe using an egg donor

    I did a clearblue test and it said pregnant 2-3 weeks, which is on the ball as DH does FIFO and that ties in exactly with when he was last home....however due to past issues we are both not getting excited yet.

    I went to a GP who was reluctant to do a BT!!!!!!!!!! said it just may add to my stress... I said I would just rather know if something was not right as it is highly emotional for me and I would just want to know so can prepare for the worst or if its all good at least I can be happy for once rather than live each day in dread.
    Regardless he was hesitant to do the BT but did .... rather annoyed with that.

    I also asked for an ultrasound script as having had an ectopic I am at risk of that happening, again he was reluctant, even though I said that I would obviously only use it if I had severe pain and if no pain I would wait a month before having it done.

    What is wrong with GPs these days?

    I had the test done on Thursday and still waiting for the results so still cannot be happy that I am pregnant.

    My boobs are sore and ive been super tired for the past week & a 1/2

    anyway i hope by tonight i will be because i will have good news

    Omg how exteamly rude & uncaring of the gp, is that ur regular one ?? (Id may even consider putting in a complaint) I'd defiantly find another gp, ask friends/family if they like their gp & defiantly see some one else .. Get some more bloods ( weekly) & defiantly get an early 6 or 7 week scan ..pains or not.. Ur entitled to scans and blood tests. Not knowing would be more stressful I feel ..
    All the best, I hope this pregnancy brings you a baby in arms ..

    Wishing you all the best! I know what that stress is like and I would rather know what is happening. That being said, try not to let worry consume you. I have in the past. What will happen will happen and no amount of worry will change the outcome but may change the joy in your experience. Sometimes I wish I could just turn my head off! My current pregnancy I tried to just remind myself that there were no indications of any concerns, that worked for me...somewhat . Enjoy your pregnancy!

    What an a**face! He's obviously never had the stress of am I am I not pregnant!!! I'd go to another gp, try to relax tho stressing can't be good for you or baby! When I got my bfp after losing a baby I was POAS every other day just to check it was real!!

    I do not have a regular GP as just moved back to Brissie after a year of living remotely so just went to the GP I could get in to.

    Anyway the results are not in yet and now I am stressing (prob more annoyed though) When go to get the results will be asking for another BT and done URGENTLY.

    Still hopeful though, have a feeling this is my miracle

    And if you are on the north side, I can recommend a great female GP who is all about the females and babies!

    Taringa is where I went. Most of docs I've seen there I don't like and prob is when u only have a limited time frame or just need to see someone ASAP you don't get much choice.
    Thanks for the other suggestions. Trying to think of the one at Kenmore you're talking about!

    Well called back this morn and the results still werent in but the girl on the phone said she would call S&N and get the results and get a Doc to look at them and get back to me.
    She called back and said Doc said my HCG levels were good for someone 4-6 weeks pregnant so that is better than ever before where my HCG has never even made it to viable levels and the 4-6 weeks is right as I am prob about 5 weeks or between 5-6 weeks now

    I am going back 2moro to have a 2nd BT to see if my HCG is rising ok and will pick up my script for the ultrasound & book in for that.

    Feeling happy but still apprehensive

    Cheerilee - thanks for the PM
