Doctorspeak...Something I am Apparently NOT Fluent in...

Am I expected to be?

You see, the doctor called me today, proclaiming that things looked GREAT! And I, naturally, was like, "What? Are you serious? Because last week I left off at 35 and this week I went down to 33. How can that be good?"

He said, "Oh. Ah. Well, actually, your counts were 33 HUNDRED on Thursday. And then on Saturday, they were 66 HUNDRED."

33-Fucking-Hundred you say?

66-Fucking-Hundred?

Hmmm...It would have been nice if the hundred part weren't excluded because then I wouldn't have spent five days thinking I was miscarrying or having horrible diseases

My eyes sort of glazed over and my mind went stupid for just about the entire rest of our conversation. I remember such phrases as "great levels" and "more than doubling." But that's about it.

Anyway, I'm in shock. I have an ultrasound next Thursday. October 5. I suppose we'll attempt to see a heartbeat then. That'd be far more awesome than I can even describe.

Holy fucking hell. I can't believe this shit.

Great to hear, Zube! I guess having a bunch of internet vibrators really helped. Er, um, internet friends vibrating. Er, um, sending vibes. I'll shut up now, and just keep vibrating for you. Er, um, sending vibes to you.

Yeah! Enjoy those super high hcg levels and I'll keep my fingers, toes and everything else crossed that they continue to double. Do they go up to thousands? Haha! :)And I'll say some prayers too.

Odd's a tough little booger, huh? :)

Viki said...

That's fantastic news, but you should not have been forced to worry all this time.

Stupid doctors and their stupid, unfeeling and incompetent office staffpeople.

You should be made to feel, by the people taking care of you, that you are in good hands and that you are well-informed. Why doctors don't get this is beyond me.

Sending vibes your way...

RisibleGirl said...

I am *NOT* lying- I got goosebumps (and still do) reading this honey!

Oh.MY.GOD!!!!!!!!!!

Thankfully, I don't have any other pregnant friends right now. You know what that means? You get ALL of my good pregnancy vibes.

OK, you would have anyway...

Storm said...

oh, fucking wonderful news!

Storm said...

I still think you need to can the doc. Fuck, that "hundred" is pretty fucking important... And for a person that's already worried about being low, that's EXTREMELY fucking important.

But... Yay!!!!!!!

Steve said...

I'm glad things are working out now, and you should definitly find another OB with a new staff, because the incompentence behind the staff is not comforting. When I get my nursing degree, I'll make sure to NEVER neglect a patient like that.

I will shortly add you to my myspace friends list, please look out for bloodbath.

CONGRATULATIONS!!! Yippeee!!!

But, man, talk about pathetic communication skills. That's ridiculous. As if you need to be under that kind of stress. Did the Dr. at least apologize?

justdawn said...

ohmygod! ohmygod!! OHMYGOD!!!

Words can not even BEGIN to describe how happy I am for you!!!

It seems that odd is living up to her name...I hope that this one decides to stick!!!

serap said...

Its so weird to feel so happy for someone you don't know! Its a shame that your doctor is so stupid, but as long as you and Odd continue to be ok, that's all that matters. We will all continue with our good vibes and prayers.

Yea!! Congratulations, wishing you the best of luck.

PaintingChef said...

EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!

That's a good sound...btw...

Northern_Girl said...

Lemme get my thesaurus...nope, can't find a better way to say it:

Yippeee! Way to hang in there, Odd!

junebee said...

Oh, that's it. Now I won't sleep till next Thursday. Shit.

Just be glad these people aren't working on your paycheck...

Rainypete said...

Awesome, but I still think doctors are tools.

LJ said...

I'm so happy for you and Mike!!! I read the other entry and though oh shit...that's just not fair. I know this one is going to be the charm. I'm psycic.

Fidget said...

I agree that you need to can this doc!!

I'm so happy things are looking good and you know I'll be praying for an awesome ultrasound.

I switched my doc when I was 12 weeks along with Tessa... after seeing my old ob twice and each time being asked "Why are you here" and then later being told "You're probably going to lose this one too"

Holy SHIT!
This is the kind of misunderstanding I have fantasies of having, but it is NEVER like this in real life. Amazing!
So happy for you!!!

Nicky said...

So happy to hear the news! Btw, my hubby checked the history for surfing yesterday and saw the hcg fluctuating levels page and left it on the screen. I got home, saw it and gave him a call. Was there something I needed to tell him??? So your post caused a little commotion here, Lol!
