The blood test this morning wasn't easy either. The waiting room was FULL. And full of ladies who were there for their pregnancy tests. I could feel the "hope" vibes and the "excitement" vibes - you know, the kinds that people emit when they have cheated with a HPT before going for the blood draw?
So I picked up a magazine - it was a very old copy of some entertainment magazine. One half of the cover was talking about "Ashl.ee Sim.pson - PREGNANT!!!!" and the other half "Mari.ah Ca.rey - How I lost 20 lbs" and I was sitting there thinking - I'm neither here, nor there. Not pregnant, just fat! Fat from all the hormones I've been sticking in my stomach voluntarily!! Just fat with nothing to show for it!!
Finally I got called in, and the lady who was drawing my blood looks at the lab slip and says "Oh, you're here for a pregnancy test?" And my answer was - "Yes, I want my HcG to be 0 today". She looked shocked - wondering why someone would go through fertility treatment and then "wish" for her HcG to be 0. So I explained to her about my ectopic pregnancy, and that it's been 6 weeks that I have been on this roller coaster and I'm tired.
She said she was sorry, yada yada yada..... Bottom line is - it is now 5:44 PM and THEY HAVE NOT CALLED ME YET!! I agree I'm not a "critical" patient for them anymore, but I'm not very "patient" either! I want my results at the time they promise me I'll get them!!!
