Today I had a patient who came in with vague epigastric abdominal pain which she had had for only 5 days. She had never been pregnant and told me that after a few rounds of invitro without success her and her husband just decided they would never be able to have children....until today.
I told her that her sx. were likely related to acid reflux or a viral syndrome, but that because she was having abdominal pain that I'd like to get a pregnancy test just to be sure. I had even written up my chart as if this was acid reflux.
We did a pregnancy test and immediately it turned positive. She was in quite the shocked state. It was actually pretty funny, but I was so happy for her. We put her positive pregnancy test in a bag and I told her she should do something fun to surprise her husband.
It's kind of fun being the person to surprise someone who hasn't been able to have a baby that they are pregnant, even though I felt like I kind of sprang it on her. We both thought for sure it would be negative and we were both very surprised. Happy Day for this patient of mine!
