18. Bump in the Road

After weeks of Vanessa nagging, I finally made an appointment to see the doctor about my flu. I was getting ready to go shopping for Halloween costumes with Vanessa and some of our friends for tomorrow.

 

I slid into some leggings and an oversized sweater as my other clothes are beginning to feel more snug on me. I paired the outfit with a pair of brown ankle boots and a light tan scarf. I brushed through my hair and left it down.

 

Vanessa and I decided to drive separately since I would be leaving part of the way through for my appointment. I made my way to the local party store and met up with the rest of the girls. We browsed around for a bit, trying on different costumes until we found one we liked.

 

As I was paying for mine, my phone went off letting me know that I should leave soon for my doctor’s visit. I waved goodbye to the girls before heading out. They were all going to lunch after this.

 

The drive to the doctor’s office would take a while, so I tried listening to the radio to past time. The current station was on a commercial break, so I switched it to one of my other favorite ones. “And that was Perfect by One Direction,” the male host announced.

 

“Now, it’s time for What’s Hot in Hollywood,” the female host introduced the next segment. “Speaking of One Direction, the top thing on our list has to do with Harry Styles.” I couldn’t help but feel interested in what was to come.

 

“He was recently seen getting cozy with fashion mo-,” I turned the radio off. I didn’t want to hear about Harry and some model. Although it’s been almost a month, I was still heartbroken. I sat in silence for the rest of the way there.

 

I checked in at the front desk and waited for my name to be called. I was asked to provide a urine sample while I waited so that they could use it to make sure everything was alright.

 

Soon my name was called by the nurse. He got my weight and all that good stuff before leading me to an examination room. “What seems to be the problem?” he asked. I explained to him how I’ve been feeling the past couple of weeks. He wrote down the symptoms I had been experiencing.

 

“Ok, well the doctor should be with you in a moment.” I sat there, messing around on my phone, waiting for the doctor to come in.

 

Luckily, I didn’t have to wait long. My doctor strode in as she was rubbing in some hand sanitizer. She held her hand out for me to shake, “Good afternoon, Alyssa.” I shook her hand and returned the greeting. “I heard you haven’t been feeling well.”

 

“Yeah,” I sighed. I went on to explain to her what I told the nurse. “Personally, I think it’s just the flu, but my cousin suggested that I come in to make sure,” I concluded. She nodded as she looked at my chart.

 

“Well, I’m glad you decided to come in,” she expressed with a smile. She took a glance down at my folder before returning her stare to me. “It seems to me that you do not have the flu.”

 

I scrunched my eyebrows in confusion, “Then what is it.” She shifted in her seat before continuing to explain the situation to me.

 

“Well, the urine test showed an increase in your hCG levels,” she paused as if she was waiting for a reaction. I think I read something about that while helping Vanessa study for school, but I couldn’t remember what.

 

“Ok?” I said puzzled and waiting for her to finish her statement.

 

“They are above 25, so it appears that you are pregnant which explains the sickness and fatigue,” she concluded. I remained silent for a couple of minutes. It was not what I expected to hear. I thought it was only the flu, but boy was I wrong.

 

“Is there anything else you can tell me?” I asked. What she just told me hadn’t fully registered yet and I don’t know if it will. She shook her head and told me she couldn’t get much from only a urine test.

 

“I would recommend that you schedule an appointment with the gynecology department for more information.” I nodded my head, still trying to process it all. “You’re free to go. Congratulation,” she smiled before stepping out, probably on her way to see the next patient.

 

I sat for a second before grabbing my purse and heading out. I stopped at the front desk to schedule the appointment. Thankfully they are able to see me tomorrow for a more detailed visit.

 

I drove home in silence. I try to think back to the last time I was with Harry. I shook my head at the thought of that night back in July. I remained calm, thinking that the doctor was probably wrong. Maybe I was just sick. There’s no way I could be pregnant if we were safe, right?

 

“How’d it go?” Vanessa questioned as I walked through the front door. She was sitting on the couch with her boyfriend, watching a movie. I shrugged my shoulders.

 

“Okay. It’s just the flu,” I lied. I wasn’t ready to believe reality. I couldn’t believe it. I didn’t want it to be my reality, but I’d have to accept it sooner or later. I choose later. I left them alone and went to my room.

 

I laid back on my bed just thinking. If I am pregnant, what am I going to do? I’m not in the right place in my life to be a mom. I’m too busy with school and work to care for a baby right now. Where was I going to live? The apartment I live in now is too small since it’s a campus apartment.

 

My head began to hurt from the thoughts running through my mind. I yawned and decided that I would just sleep the night away. I change into an oversized shirt and some shorts before crawling back into bed.

I slept in a little the next day but still felt super sluggish. I got out of bed and was hit with a wave of nausea. I rushed to the restroom, making it in time. I brushed my teeth quickly before changing into something comfy since I didn’t plan on doing anything after my appointment. That is, until the Halloween party tonight.

 

I grabbed my phone off the charger and made my way to the kitchen. I grabbed a banana to go and was on my way out the door, but had to turn around because I forgot my keys.

 

I was hit with a sort of deja vu as I walked into the hospital building. I stopped to get directions to the gynecology department before heading in that direction. I checked in at the desk and waited.

 

Once my name was called, my vitals were quickly checked. I was taken to a room that had an ultrasound machine in it. The doctor soon walked in and introduced herself. “Hello, I’m Dr. Fields and I’ll be your doctor through this journey,” she smiled.

 

“Hello,” I smiled back. She explained to me how she will measure my belly as well as do an ultrasound scan to figure out how far along I am. She grabbed a tape measure from a drawer and wrapped it around my waist. I was barely showing at the moment, but it was enough to measure.

 

She wrote something done before she looked up at me. “Okay now lay back and lift your shirt please,” she asked politely. I did as told as she set everything up. She placed some cool gel on my lower abdomen and moved the wand around. “And there’s your baby,” she announced, pointing at the screen for me to see.

 

It was then that reality hit me. Seeing the little one that is growing inside of me up on the screen made me realize that this is real. That I am pregnant. “Oh my…” I whispered as I was in shock.

 

“According to the measurements, you appear to be 14 weeks into your pregnancy,” she shared, “and here’s the heartbeat.” She pressed a button and soon the room was filled with the sound of my baby’s heartbeat. That’s still weird to say, my baby.

 

“Wow,” tears slowly slid down my face. I couldn’t tell if it was happy tears or sad tears. I wiped my face as Dr. Fields cleaned my stomach. She threw the napkin away before rolling her chair over to her desk where my file was. She scribbled something down and got out of her seat.

 

“I would say that your due date is estimated to be about late-April, ” she explained. I nodded my head in understanding. She stepped back behind the machine before reappearing with some photos, “Would you like one?”

 

“Yeah,” I mumbled. She separated one of the ultrasound photos from the rest and handed it to me. I thanked her and slid it in my purse for safe keeping. Well as safe as it can be until I get home.

 

“I’ll write a prescription for some prenatal vitamins and I will like to see you again in a couple of weeks for your fourth month check up,” she wrote the prescription and gave it to me. We said our farewells before I got up and left.

 

On the way home, I thought about the baby. About how I doubted its existence yesterday, but I knew it was real now. About how I have to raise it on my own, and how it will be raised without its father. I plan on telling Harry, but him actually being there is pretty unlikely.

 

The thought of this brought me to tears. When I pulled into the parking lot of the apartment, I remained in my car. I just sat there and cried. I place a hand on my tiny bump and cried out, “I’m so sorry.”

 

I don’t know why I was apologizing or to who, but I felt the need to. Maybe it was to the baby for putting him or her in this situation. Who knows. I let out a deep breath before cleaning the tears off my face and making my way inside.
