So, I just found out I was pregnant Fri June 16th. I'd been having symptoms since May 25th ish, and had a weird "period" May 20-24. I discarded the symptoms and odd period as my body getting used to not being on birth control pills, since I read that is its heavy enough for more than one pad or tampon it's not spotting. It never occured to me that I might be pregnant, since I'd had a "period".
Well now I know I am. I called the base clinic for a blood test. Due to a freak hail storm Thursday night, they were closed Friday and so all Fridays apts got moved to today. So They told me they would put my name in at the Lab, just go to the Lab and they would draw blood and call me back. I assumed when they called me back they would also talk to me or ask me to come back in for a little bit. But all she did was give me the number to the off base women's clinic. So I call them and tell them that I got a referral from the base clinic, and she asked when the first day of my last period was, I talk her I had an odd period that started May 20th. She didn't ask any questions and just said that meant I was just barely pregnant. The first apt they do is for the ultrasound timing to see how far along I really am and they don't do those till 8 weeks. So my apt isn't till July 28th. Then said have a good day and hung up.
I've had symptoms for a month, and disrgarding my last "period", I could be 8 weeks pregnant now. So then I'd be 12 weeks by July 28th...
I hate where I live, the closest Midwife is 3 hours away, and this whole town, even off base is so small that it's all so militarized since that's all they really deal with.
I'm just really disappointed I don't get to talk to anyone or find anything out for over a month. I don't know what to do. This is my first pregnancy.
