Down but not Out

I feel down right now but not completey out. My RE told me today that he strongly recommends surgery to remove my fibroids. He basically said that they could affect my fertility and that they could increase my chance of miscarriage. And of course no one wants that. Dr Feelgood said that it wasn't so much the size of the fibroids but their location; I have two grape-sized fibroids lodged in the muscles of my uterus.

I am not a happy camper right now but my RE seems to think that this procedure ill increase my chances of getting pregnant and giving birth.The surgery is cheduled for mid-October. The recovery time is 2 to 4 weeks. I have to wait three cycles until I can TTC again.

So we are looking at an October birth, if everything works out.

Well, I am an October baby, and I think we rock. But seriously: I'm sorry to hear it's not the news you want.

I had a feeling he'd say that. At least you can take a break and relax... if you can possibly think of it that way. Thought of you the other day when I ordered egg drop soup!
