Can’t shake the feeling that something is wrong

I know that I just saw my doctor on Wednesday and she said not to worry about the cramping. It is irrational to think that something could be wrong when I JUST SAW HER…but the cramping is still persistent. The only time I remember these cramps from last time was the day my water broke. That same day, I had an ultrasound and everything looked good and I didn’t insist on a manual exam to check the ultrasound. 6 hours later, my water broke. I am not scheduled to go back to see her until the 16th and I really don’t want to bother her and get the reputation of being ‘the lady who is a pain’.  I don’t know what to do other than keep hoping for the best and trying to keep the anxiety at bay.

  1. Aww I am sorry hun! I know that feeling of anxiety oh so well. Try to stay calm and trust your doctors. But at the same be very honest with them! Tell them how you are feeling. Cramping at this stage is very normal, but I know you know that and just cause we know it doesn’t mean it helps. Thnking about it!

  2. I know how much it sucks to feel like you’re an annoyance to your doctor’s office but trust your gut and don’t worry about being a bother. Their inconvenience is not more important than your peace of mind.

  3. I think if the cramping is persistent you have to go in again. I had one night where I had excrutiating cramping and thought something was wrong but it went away. But that was just one night. Or just call her office and see what they suggest. You can always go to a retail ultrasound place to check if you get desperate. Plus get yourself one of those dopplers to hear the heartbeat. Do what you need to do to make yourself as calm as possible. Don’t worry about other people, you can apologize later.

    1. Thanks Anna. I called the office and she told me take some Tylenol (*rolling eyes*) and if it got “a lot worse” (*rolling eyes again*) to go to the ER. I am coming down with a cold and have been coughing so she is saying it may be from the coughing…I am going to look into getting a doppler. You are right; me sitting here and freaking out isn’t good for either of us!

  4. I really wouldn’t worry about being a “bother”. Her job is to care for you and your baby. You know your body better than her and if you are still in pain you should probably let her know. I really pray everything is alright.
