Change of plans. It just keeps getting better!

I will NOT be taking birth control for a month. Thanks but no. I will instead be having a laproscopy.

I know, I know....it sounds a bit extreme to go from birth control to surgery all in a day. But the truth of the matter is, Dr.C had originally wanted to do this. We discussed it at our last visit but when she saw my eyes tearing up, she said we could try an IUI first and then maybe re-visit the idea if it didn't work. Damn shame we didnt get that far. Stupid cyst. Oh how I hate thee.
I figure seeing as I have this giant freak of a cyst on one of my ovaries, there are suspicions of me having endometriosis, and I'm already out of the running for this cycle, I may as well get this out of the way so we can move on!
Thats all I want to do...move the fuck on. Getting pregnant is NOT supposed to be the freaking hard! I mean, I spent a large portion of my life avoiding pregnancy! And now that my husband and I want it so badly....nuttin! It ain't right. As I'm sure you'll all agree.

So, November 10th I will be going under the knife. I have my pre-op appointment on the 4th where I'll get all the details. Such as how soon after can we do the IUI. How long is the recoup time...and so on.

Oh, and she'll take care of the cyst while she is all up ins. Woo friggin hoo.

I'm a little scared. I'm not a fan of surgery of any kind. (unless of course someone is offering to pay for plastic surgery. I'm ALL about that!!) But I'm also not a stranger to it. Honestly, the fact that I will be out cold is somewhat comforting to me. Just knock me the fuck out and we're golden.

Wow, turn of events eh?

If it was on the cards anyway, it's probably good to get it done this cycle.

Tell you what...I'll race ya...

Boy, that is a change of plans! I'm so jealous you get to go in on the 10th! Mine isn't until Dec. 5th. I was told 2 months after to start TTCA, but I think my RE is a little conservative on that. Hopefully you won't have to wait so long. Sorry you have to do it at all. {hugs}

Shut Up! Seriously?

I'm so sorry. It does suck when the plan up and changes. I know.

Hopefully it's just a cyst, and no endo.

I had a hysteroscopy to remove a polyp and it wasn't bad at all. I'm sure the laparascopy is a little more in depth because it involves incisions. But they are supposed to be small.

Hugs!!!

Wow, nice switch. Don't think about the knife think about the outcome. (Ooops shouldn't have mentioned the knife - sorry scratch that)

That's definitely a change in events! You are so right - it should not be this hard to get pregnant. And its so not fair that you have to go through all of this. Good luck & lots of happy thoughts coming your way!
