I went in for my 1st IUI appt (this is our 5th attempt to try our 1st IUI). When I got in there and she started the u/s I saw this HUGE mass of “something”…I thought it was a follicle and I was about to jump for joy, however I was wrong…it’s a cyst; and it’s about the size of a tennis ball. My u/s tech immediately said she need to get my Dr. to find out what he wanted to do, so off I go to another room and wait for him. He comes in and tells me it has blood in it, and it’s either a) a small cyst that I bleed into and it stretched out or b) a follicle that I bleed into and it stretched out. He said as of right now they are not thinking surgery b/c they want to watch it for a little while, but if it gets worse or bigger that will be the option. They are thinking it will shrink b/c it is leaking right now so my Dr. really thinks it’s on the verge to maybe busting…of course I asked if that would hurt and they said yes, pretty bad but think of it as a way of it “healing itself”. He said I still have a shot at this IUI, it’s too early to count myself out of it just yet, which made me happy! He said this cycle just has to be a “little more perfect” that it already had to be…((SO that means EVEN EXTRA prayers)) :o) As of right now I am in some pretty bad pain b/c of them poking around on it…knowing I had a cyst and the size of it really made sense to me, b/c if ya’ll remember I was in horrible pain on Thanksgiving day and a little after Thanksgiving but I was afraid to go to the ER, well my Dr. told me NEXT TIME GO! Haha!!
I have faith that we will still be able to get the IUI and things will be ok…for some reason I just feel like this cycle will fall into place like it should, but we shall see…God may have other plans in mind :o)
Thanks for all the calls, texts and emails I have received today checking on me and some checking on Zach, you all have no idea how much it means to us. I never in a million years would have thought that I would have such amazing people on my side through this all!!
