A few weeks ago, I really had this pain in my lower abdomen. I thought it was just gas and just ignored it. But it was persistent and when it didn't go away in the next couple of days, I went to my doctor for a check-up. It not your ordinary lower abdomenal pain and she recommended that I go to see a gastroenterologist and a gynecologist so that everything will be covered. It could be my appendix, my large intestines, my kidney or my reproductive system.
Luckiy, I got an appointment for an ultrasound scan at the gastroenterologist clinic. Everything looked good and normal, the specialist said except for my right ovary. It was a bit enlarged, he said, so that I really need to see a gynecologist. Just hearing the word "enlarged" got me worrying to the nth level, and so did the husband. The also checked my urine and the results were normal. They also took some blood for further tests. On our way home with my daughter, I had the sudden fear of the unknown. I was already having thoughts of all the what if's that I had to stop myself. I had to stop thinking about all the nonsense because I know that God will always be with us and He won't forsake us.
So I got an appointment for my gynecologist last Monday. By then, the pain has thankfully subsided and nothing can be seen when another ultrasound scan was performed. My left and right ovaries all looked normal in the scan. The doctor could not explain why I had pains because he cannot see anything. He mentioned that I could be pregnant but that it was still too small to be visible in the ultrasound scan or I could be not.
At least my mind was already put at ease, knowing that everything inside of me is functioning well. Right now, I am entertaining the idea that I could indeed be pregnant but that still remains a question. I am still too reluctant to do a home pregnancy test because I don't feel any symptoms yet. But yes, all is well. God has always been and is always with us.
