Just get it checked out ASAP and keep us posted!
If it is any consolation-- idiot me trusted Kaisers WRONG hcg blood test confirming that I was *not* pregnant. The test still makes me laugh because I knew I was and I swore to myself that I would NOT get an U/S early or even get prenatal care till atleast 8wks. My m/c was very hard for me emotionally at 8wks. I partially believe these internal U/S wands might disrupt the body that early on and are NOT needed to confirm pregnancy. Well I doubted myself because I just started a new thyroid drug and thought something else was going on. DH and I practiced FAM or TTA for a long time and even cheated once in a while and never got pregnant. I did a google search for some of my "symptoms" and they all pointed to ovarian cancers, tumors etc., my sister just had a surgery to remove an ovarian cyst and she told me the post op recovery was brutal. I was in a lot of pain with cramping that was coupled with horrible low back pain. I have never felt anything like it! I decided to go to urgent care. They told me I was pregnant. I felt incredibly stupid! But I still made SURE to get checked out!
Thanks, Tilly :)
I went to see an OB on Wednesday for an exam, and I was sooooooo nervous. Turned out to only be a varicose vein- she showed me in a hand mirror why it appeared so different from the angle (standing/sitting) I was seeing it from rather than laying down, because of the difference in blood volume/pressure. Thank goodness. I was a freakin wreck. In fact, my anxiety has been getting the best of me lately, in lots of situations.
Yucky varicose veins- but YAY for not too bad!
