Yesterday I was pretty crampy. I haven't really had any cramps in a while (like a month) and they kept up and didn't stop. No blood or anything, just some nasty cramping.
So I made my first after hours call into the ob. I didn't get jack. "Cramping is normal. Take some tylenol. If it starts bleeding call back in on Monday." WTF! If it starts bleeding, I'm going to the ER, now, not Monday, you moron. Idiot.
Yes, I know cramping is normal, but it hasn't been normal for me. I argued with her for awhile (she was a nurse, not a doctor, by the way). Finally she's like, "What do you want me to do?"
I want you to tell me to come on in for an ultrasound if it will make me feel better!
No dice. She tells me the best I can do is to go into the ER, and something tells that spending July 4th in an ER sounds like a bad idea since I wasn't bleeding and their isn't anything that can be done for me anyhow.
You want to know the only thing I can think of that might have set it off? Sex. Plain, vanilla, boring sex. Now, I'm more than a little terrified to have sex again. Poor DH.
We were suppose to go to DH's relatives for the day, but my better judgment decided that it wasn't a good idea any longer and I went and laid down most of the rest of the day. DH volunteered to call his family and tell them he had a stomachache.
The cramping seemed to mostly happen when I was moving. Today I haven't had more than a cramp, but I did have some sharpish pains to the right of my uterus this morning, which makes me think I may be getting some round ligament pain. Which makes me wonder if some of my cramping yesterday wasn't also RLP (although, I think they felt much more menstrual than RLP is described to be).
So I don't know what to think. And I'm pretty freaked out by the fact that have another month until my next appointment. Some more RLP feelings would be reassuring at this point. This whole journey has been pretty difficult for a control freak like me.
