Mamas: I'm freaking out here! Literally bawling my eyes out! Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
I've had right-sided (ovary?) pain for awhile that has gotten significantly worse in the last week (since my last dr apt)
I went in today. He did a pelvic exam & said that my uterus felt enlarged, as did my right ovary. "Consider yourself pregnant unless we prove you otherwise" He insisted on a urine preg test before sending me for an ultrasound. It was negative. He's written on the ultrasound requistion "Uterus feels 10 weeks" "right ovary enlarged" "cancellation list please" & something else that I can't read.
My period was due 3 or 4 days ago. (day 1 of last cycle was Oct 31)
The hospital has put me on a cancellation list, but said it'll prob be sometime next week before I'll even be called.
So...if I'm not pregnant...what causes a uterus to enlarge THAT MUCH??? Tumor? Fibroids? Endometriosis?
If I am pregnant, why isn't it showing up on a urine test? Especially if I'm pregnant enough for my uterus to feel like a 10 week pregnant uterus...you would think that I would show up positive on a pregnancy test, right?
(Quick background: We've had trouble conceiving for 2 years, I had an infection in my right ovary 1.5 years ago, I had an ectopic pregnancy on my right side 12 years ago & at that time they also removed a cyst the size of a grapefruit & I've had lots of ovarian cysts since then- all smaller, though)
Please, please, please tell me what you think it could be. (And if you are a praying kinda person- no matter which God you pray to- PLEASE pray for me)
