    If he won’t tell you until Monday I’d say that’s a sign that it is not something really serious as if it was he would want to see you sooner.

    Still fingers crossed for you though

    I agree @Ibelive2020. Although the uncertainty must be unpleasant, the wait hopefully means it's not anything too serious. Maybe you could line up some more home-based activities to do with the kids in the meantime to take your mind off of things? The homemade bingo sounded fun!

    Hi @Ibelive2020, you could actually tell, to a certain extent, what could be wrong, by looking at the medicines the doctor has given you.
    For instance, if he's prescribed iron tablets, then your iron is low. If he's given you antibiotics, then you probably have an infection. 
    Don't worry too much, it's good that he's prescribed you something between now and Monday. You could also ask the pharmacist to explain to you what the medicines are for.
