Just for the Girls

First of all, I just went through my dashboard stuff, and I have WAY too many blog posts to catch up on. I am trying though. I have been reading all of your posts this morning, but I haven't been able to comment. I may come back and comment later. If time allows. Just know that I am still following all of you and I will try to comment soon.

Second of all, if you are male, or just don't like reading about "girl stuff," you better stop now. The rest of you, continue on.

As mentioned in earlier posts, I have been having some issues since William was born. Basically, to be blunt, I haven't stopped bleeding since he was born 3 1/2 months ago. And no, it isn't just some light spotting here and there. Not even close. My iron is too far down and it makes me feel like a slug. The doctor has had me try everything. We were even doubling up on birth control pills for a while there. That was sure interesting. I would look at anything or talk about anything and start crying. It was pathetic.

Nothing is helping. I had an ultrasound, where everything looked normal. Obviously, everything isn't normal, so on Thursday, this week, I go in for a D&C and also a hysteroscopy, where they check everything out with a camera to try to locate the problem. Fun times for me. The doctor is hoping that the D&C will re-set my body clock, so to speak.

I am not ovulating for some reason, and if we want to have any more children (which is undecided at this point, but I would like to choose for myself, not have my body choose for me) we have to get this fixed.

I am not looking forward to this at all, especially with all of the stuff that happened last time I had a D&C, but I am hoping the doctor can figure out what the heck is wrong with me.

Well, looks like computer time is up, William is hungry. Dang, he is so cute! Wish me luck on Thursday. Later.

Hoping everything will go smoothly and easily, like it should! It's no fun when your body isn't cooperating the way it should.

Good luck Becky! I'm sorry that is happening, what a pain.

P.S. I LOVE the song you chose. It is awesome. Sounds like a fun running song. I think i will have to download it.

Oh, Becky...good luck on Thursday.
I'll call you later in the week to check in. I've been meaning to call you to catch up and fill you in on all the gymnastics mom gossip! Man, I wish you were still around to make those 3 hours a week go by a little quicker! On a happy note, Kate finally made it to the top of the rope! Yeah!

Talk to you soon!

The not knowing is always so frustrating and a bit scary. Hoping they find something they can fix quickly!
