ElizabethAnn - April 10

Hey, i just need to vent!!! I'm 8 weeks tomorrow and today i called my doc cause i have had a little pink spotting the past couple days, so i have just been freaking out big time!, so they took a message. Then a few hours later a nurse called and then i asked her if it was normal... sooo then she puts me on HOLD! and comes back and tells me its ok and to just call back if it gets any worse. Then she proceeds to tell me my results of my test, she tells me i have B Strep! and i have to have an IV of anitibiotics during labor! WHICH FREAKED ME OUT MORE!!! then on top of that she tells me YOU HAVE ABNORMAL PAPsmear!!!!! but it was undetermined!! ughghghghh they just really know how to make you feel even more scared!!!! she tells me "dont worry they'll just do another pap after birth" OMG is it just me or should they have waited to tell me the results of blood test and everything at my next apt she just made my stress level shoot out of the roof!!!!!!!!! ahhhhh sorry just needed to vent, i dont really have anyone to talk to , my friends all took off since i got preggers.............

What a crazy nurse! I would be in there today saying ok, I need to sit down and talk with the doctor about this ASAP! They should have waited and told you these things in person. My second appt. is tomorrow and that's when I will get my first blood test results! Like I said, what a crazy nurse! Don't worry too much...I'm sure everything is fine :)

hello squished! Yeah i'm trying to to worry to much, ive looked everythign up online and nothing she told me needs to be worried about all that much, its quite normal to have Bstrep , and get back an abnormal papsmear... i'm just one of thoughs people who freak out about my health!!!! Hope everything goes good tomorrow for your blood test results!! I'm sure they will!!!! I wish i had the guts to run down to the doctors office and demand to spk with the doctor but i dont, also i think if i went i'd just start crying and make an a** outta myself! hehe i'm sooooo emotional lately!!! hehe

It's awful early for a GBS test to determine if you need antibiotics during labor. That test is usually done at 37 weeks, as some women who were negative earlier are positive then, and vice versa. Try to not worry. I had one abnormal pap years ago, and it was due to some infection or other I didn't even know I had. Call your doctor back and ask for clarification.

yeah i'm trying not to worry about it, I dont think im gunna try and call my doctor because they only seem to let you speak with nurses that have no idea what they are doing. I'll just wait two weeks untill my next apt. I can ask her then. I dont wanna no anymore info over the phone! hehe

haha elizabeth! I would probably stomp down there and be ready to demand to be seen and then I'd start bawling too! One minute I'm happy, the next I'm almost on the verge of crying and the next I'm annoyed :) I also freak out about all kinds of stuff and being pregnant has only made me more worrisome......three more weeks and I will feel better. Maybe when you go to the dr. and you see that nurse maybe you could squish her head in between your fingers and then you'll feel better :) It works for me!
