Misery loves company, or not!

Today has been quite a day for me. I went in to work this morning for a bit and then called my OBGYN. Unfortunately he was out of the office and I had to see a different doctor. I was not impressed with this doc's bedside manner. He was very cold and uncaring. I guess that could possibly be because I am not his patient, I don't know. Regardless, I informed him of my symptoms, chest pains (deep breaths, coughs, sneezes, etc cause pain), as well as pressure in my abdominal area. I know the pressure is common for pregnant women, but accompanied with pain in my chest had me a bit worried. His diagnosis was that my body is pumping 50% more blood through it than it normally does so it's most likely causing some discomfort. The pressure/pain in my belly, ligament pain. This is baby #3 for me and I don't remember this sort of discomfort at 30 weeks. I didn't have chest pain at all, but the pressure/pain didn't start until late 35-36 weeks with Tyler. I am thinking that if the next two months are going to be like this, it is NOT going to be good. I have a regularly scheduled visit with my doctor on Wednesday. If I am not feeling any better by Monday, I might call and see if he can see me. I think I would feel better hearing the same diagnosis from him. I was just glad to not hear big words like mesothelioma or some other big word I'd have to research to be able to even pronounce. So, keep your fingers crossed for me that I'll feel better before the weekend is over and I'm not put on bed rest! Have a good weekend, everyone. I'm off to put my feet back up and watch some more television.

You sure you want to wait until Monday. Just saying honey. That doctor isn't very nice. Some just don't seem to care about much. Well, except for the money. Rest and feel better. Big hug. :)
