How utterly annoying! <Ultrasound>

I just had an ultrasound (I'm about 7 weeks) because I've been bleeding on and off for the last week or so. In the beginning, I asked the tech what she was seeing and she said, "Just ovaries right now...lots to look at..." Later in the process, I asked for an update and she said, "almost done..." And when she was obviously done, she said, "I don't want to concern you, but I'm going to take this to the radiologist so he can review it." I said, "Gee, sounds like bad news." She didn't respond.

So I wait for about 5 minutes and she walks back into the room and I'm looking at her with anticipation and she says, "You can call your doctor in 24-48 hours for the results." I said, "Seriously?! You can't tell me anything?" and she was like "it's my policy...I'm a stickler about it. Try not to worry too much." ?!?!??!?!?! I was dumbfounded. Why didn't she just say right off the bat that she wasn't going to say a word about any of it? So, SO annoyed.

So what do you think? Good or bad news? Lol...I've made peace with a poor result...but I am now overanalyzing what the words "try not to worry too much" might mean. :-/ I've had about 5 trans-vag ultrasounds with all of my pregs and this is the first time I've encountered the silent treatment. Argh!

Thanks for listening to my rant

Sigh, it's a no go. I figured as much after that appointment. Wishing you all the best - healthy and happy pregnancies to you all!

Thank you all so much for your kind thoughts! I had acupuncture this morning, hoping to speed up the natural miscarriage process...I don't want this to take a long time :-/
Thank you again and I hope you all have lovely pregnancies!

@youngsoul , I am very sorry that you are going through this. You have a great attitude though and it will help you heal, I hope that there comes a time not too far from now when you can post that you are expecting and all is going well. Take care.

Sorry youngsoul every time I read something like this it just reaffirms the midwife route to me. Tired of the disrespect dished out by mainstream medical so called professionals. I am sorry she had to add distress to an already painful situation. Will have you in my thoughts.
