A tad frustrated & June 10th update

I'm a bit frustrated because of yesterday. Well, like I mentioned, I needed to get my period by yesterday otherwise I'm supposed to start medroxy (assuming I'm *not* pregnant). Well, I got to my appointment fine. It was *supposed* to be at two pm. Well, the place was PACKED of people, and some had a 2 o'clock appointment too which I didn't quite understand. Well, 2:20 approached and the nurse brought me back. I don't know what went wrong, but she weighed me and said it was weird because last time she weighed me she wrote down 200! I was like, "I didn't gain 48 pounds in three weeks! I *wish* I was 200." I know what I weighed on theirs last time... I weighed 251. SO she fixed her mistake.

She left, then came back in about three minutes later. She took my blood pressure and I know it's wrong. She told me I was 150/90! The max anyone should be is 130/89 and that's a high-normal. So I know something is wrong. I was 130/89 exactly at my dietican appointment. However, at the dietican appointment the blood pressure thing went too tight and did something to my arm. So now every so often when I push myself up my fingers (mainly my thumb) goes numb. Mother said that if I got nerve damage the blood pressure would read me wrong on that side. So I think it could've been that.

She left again, came back 10 minutes later. She apologized and said the doctor wasn't around. I guess she was delivering someone. I told her that isn't good because I needed the appointment that day. I told her I needed a pregnancy test then if I wasn't pregnant she was going to give me further instruction about taking medroxy to start. I told her I was supposed to be getting a dye test done afterwards too. She said she could give me the pregnancy test, so I gave her a sample. The results...

Negative. I knew I wasn't pregnant. However, I can't explain why for the past five days I was having cramps when my period hasn't came. I'm clueless.

So, the nurse said she'd give a message for the doctor to call me so I know what to do. I didn't want to start without her word. Well, it's 3:30 today and still no phonecall. I have a feeling I should do this on my own for now. I really dislike when doctor's pull things like this. I know I should get my tubes checked but with the stories I've heard, I feel like I shouldn't. I'm not big on the pain it'd cause. I think if I don't get pregnant in the next six months I'll go back to a specialist and get checked out. We'll see. Maybe I'll change my mind.

June 10th Update: Thankfully around 1 pm the Ob/gyn did call me. I didn't expect her to, but I was grateful for it. So we talked and she told me to start medroxy today. She said for me to take clomid this cycle too. I was like, "didn't you want me to get the dye test (Hysterosalpingography) done?" She said it at this point isn't too necessary. Right now we don't need to do it. Honestly, it was a relief to hear that. I know there's a chance my fallopian tubes could be plugged, but at this point I'd rather not worry. I heard two stories about it that bothered me too, and I'm not good on pain or cramps either.

So this is what the plan is this month:

Start medroxy (provera) today (6/10/04), one pill a day for five days

When menstruation starts (aka 1st day of cycle), stop medroxy if the dose wasn't finished

Call doctor when menstruation starts

3rd day of cycle start clomid, 1 a day for five days

20th day of cycle get tested for ovulation

Wish me luck!
