That is the latest thing I’ve heard from my OB — as transcribed from one of her nurses. (Notice it still wasn’t she that called me.) “Just watch it” is the sound (and oh-so-personal) medical advice I got from my OB after having bled now for 7 weeks and calling to ask if there is anything we should do or if I should be concerned at this point.
Umm, SHE better “watch it!” lol…
I was hoping she might want to shoot me up with some hormones or at least think about putting me on the pill or something for a bit, to regulate me out. Maybe even see me for once. Or at the very least, come up with something better than that.
I mean, really. As Gob would say, “Come on!!!” Is that the best she can do? Does she really think I haven’t been “watching it” every time I go to the bathroom, only to whip out another pantiliner? Wearing those things ain’t exactly a picnic. Goodness gracious, I miss my pretty lacy panties!!
What does that even mean anyway — “watch it”? I should call her tomorrow and report back, “I watched it. It ain’t pretty, but I watched it. Oh–and it’s still there!”
She also told me to take a home pregnancy test. For what it’s worth, I know I’m not still producing hCG. I took tests weekly until my levels were down to 4. That was weeks ago, and I’m not passing any clots or tissue, don’t feel nauseous, etc., so I’m pretty sure it’s all gone. So forgive me for being cheap but I’m not about to waste a pricey pregnancy test on this! Not to mention it feels pretty weird, even quite sad right now, peeing on a stick and hoping for it to be negative.
So I think what I’ll do is just watch it (her words) for the next couple of weeks. What else am I going to do? If I pass 9 weeks of straight bleeding I’ll call in — and this time, demand a follow up exam or something. And maybe when that comes around I’ll just look up a new doctor. I was planning on it anyway.
