Ok I am 22 weeks pregnant right now. I had the normal pregnancy first trimester bloodwork done 1 month ago. I am pretty nervous because I did not get the results of this. The reason I did the blood work so late is because I was nervous that there was something wrong so I completely put it off which I know is incredibly stupid of me but ugh I let my HA take over. The state that my dr is in requires an HIV test. I am worried about this. I by no means was every sexually promiscuous EVER. When I had been in relationships in the past I was always safe, except with my ex, but who I lived with and being young and naive trusted. Now I have had regular blood work since I slept with him over 2 years ago but not an hiv test. Also I found out recently that he has been using iv drugs.
Just to add I never had anything to do with drugs, we met when we were very young. We dated for a long time and I became pregnant. After that I knew he had developed a dependency to pain medication and I thought I could help him through it. Big mistake. I ended up being severely abused in that relationship until I gained the strength to get out finally. It was after that I met my wonderful husband who now raises my daughter as his own. I don't believe he ever used the iv drugs when I was with him. I truly believe this was long after we had broken up, but the thought just won't leave my head. What if he did use them while we were together? What if he did infect me? What if I am sick? My dr would have gotten the results I would assume within a week or two. I do not have a voice mail set up on my cell phone. Would they have made sure to talk to me if the results were bad? I go today at 4 and am having a huge panic attack now in fear. No one ever called that I know of. My cell phone is to be quite honest usually attached to my hand.
