The ‘Berry’ Pregnancy Diaries – week 7

Monday 8th July – 7w 1d
Had the tiniest bit of spotting this morning – it was literally the size of a pin prick but obviously I went straight into worry/panic mode. I made an appointment with my fab nurse to see if I could either have a blood test or an early scan. I had a blood test to check hormone levels and she said she would ring me tomorrow afternoon with the results. Just have to try and relax a bit.


Tuesday 9th July – 7w 2d
Waited all day for a phone call and heard nothing. Going to call first thing in the morning, and have another night of worrying I suppose. I’ve had no more blood or pains since yesterday though so feeling a little more positive. 


Wednesday 10th July – 7w 3d
So I called the surgery pretty much as soon as they opened this morning. The receptionist told me you can only call for blood results between 2pm-6pm, but they were closed for training this afternoon. So yet another day of worrying.


Thursday 11th July – 7w 4d
By the way, today is our 5th wedding anniversary! So up until 2pm, today felt like it dragged so much. As soon as the clock turned 2pm, I was straight on the phone to the surgery. The receptionist gave me the worst possible news – my blood results showed negative for a pregnancy. I asked her to confirm it, and she did. I just couldn’t believe it. How? Also she said there was a note on there for someone to ring, but obviously no one did. Annoyed. I asked for an appointment to discuss what to do next, i.e. go for a scan to confirm it. I managed to get one for this afternoon which I was pleased about. I told the dr I’d had a negative blood test, and she had a look at my file. She asked who told me that, so I told her, the receptionist. She then told me that it was wrong, as it showed very high hormone levels! For the 2nd time today, I couldn’t believe it, but I was so relieved. She was as confused as I was, so she went to double check with another dr and sure enough, it was as she had said. We were obviously both a bit shocked, but I was also relieved; and angry, frustrated, that I had been told what I had, over the phone. My immediate thought was to write a letter of complaint. Receptionists should just not be ale to give out such important results over the phone, obviously without proper training. What a day. 


Friday 12th July – 7w 5d
Felt really unwell today. So dizzy every time I stand up. Think it could be the heat too, I’m keeping hydrated though and trying to rest when possible! Also another celeb tragedy, I made Alan Whicker die.


Saturday 13th July – 7w 6d
More pregnancy dreams. Last night I dreamed our neighbour put her child in a dustbin because it was crying and wouldn’t shut up! Most of my pregnancy dreams are funny, but I really do hate them sometimes.
