Why is there always a 'but'?

So I had my OB appointment today.  I liked the doctor, though the digs were a step down from the deluxe hospital clinics I used to frequent.  She did an ultrasound and said that the baby looked good -- and VERY active -- and the SCH looks as if it's absorbing.  She didn't measure it this time, but it did look more opaque and less black than before, so I saw what she meant.  They'll measure it for real at my big u/s at 18-20 weeks.  I then have the option of getting it ultrasounded at every appointment or just assuming it's all going fine.  Which do you think I'll choose?

BUT!  She found a lump in my breast.  Now, I had a breast exam in late June by my old OB, and I had a mammogram in February.  Neither of these facts made this OB say, "Oh, no problem."  We're to watch it.  Maybe I should have demanded a u/s right then.  I'm going to consult Dr. Google and then decide what to do next.

I'm sorry!

I'm glad to hear that the SCH is getting better, but DANG, how could this be with the lump and all? Ugh! :(

I hope it's nothing to worry about!

I am glad the little one is ok and SCH is doing better.

I hope the lump is nothing.
