Holy cow, I am a slacker! I don't even wanna tell you how long it's been since I posted.
Where do I begin? A few weeks ago I was officially diagnosed with Poly-Cystic-Ovaries-Syndrome aka PCOS. The news, while expected, was devastating. It means that while I do have a chance of being able to have children, it will be a difficult process.
While having my ultrasound to determine PCOS, they found out I also had a wall in my uterus. Which meant that if I were to get pregnant, I would miscarry, and risk killing myself as well if it ruptured. So I went in for surgery last week to get everything taken care of.
After the surgery (I was out of it, so the doctor talked to my parents & Nick) the doctor seemed very optimistic about my chances of getting pregnant. Expecting to wake up with one incision and waking up with four was shocking. While he was cutting out the wall, he found a huge cyst in my ovary and ended up needing the other doctor to help him burn open an Ovary and get it out. They also found a staple lodged in one of my ovaries, that apparently fell out after my gall bladder surgery a few years ago.
The new information the doctor gave me, is very nerve racking but VERY exciting. I should be able to start on some fertility medications soon, and hopefully make my dream of being a mommy come true :)
I go in for my post-op next week, where he will tell me what needs to happen, and what my chances are at this point. So, please, cross your fingers for me :)
