It's been a while. A loooooong while.
It's been an interesting year, to say the least. I've had some crazy gynecological stuff going on ...namely dysfunctional daily uterine bleeding for just about a year. I ended up getting my gall bladder taken out at the end of August, followed by another D&C for ANOTHER early miscarriage in late September. The bleeding never stopped after the D&C ...but improved somewhat. It stopped responding to hormones. We mainly blame it on some seriously intense adenomyosis. And the ever present PCOS. Ultimately, I decided very reluctantly to have a hysterectomy. Which I was dreading in most ways. I decided to actually take my vacation that was scheduled and not use all of my vacation time as sick time ...and planned on scheduling the hyster when I got back from a wonderful trip to Florida. I spent 11 days in the warmth of the gulf where I watched baby A2 learn all about the ocean and the golden girl explore what it really means to be on spring break in a spring break town as a teenager.
I was laying on the beach and turned over to stand up and ..umm...had the most crazy out of control pain in my right lower quadrant that passed about 2 minutes later. I thought....hmm. And then it happened three more times. It was a familiar pain. Round ligament pain.
So I came home from Florida and peed on a stick. And saw two very, very dark lines.
It seems that I have an appropriately doubling beta currently in the 10,000's. And it looks like I might be having a baby instead of a hysterectomy. Ultrasound scheduled for Monday.
Which somehow led me here. We'll see how this goes.
