I guess I spoke to soon :(

I don't know how information can get so mixed up nor do I think I will ever understand it. Like I mentioned before, after surgery my doctor came out and told my husband and family that everything looked good, she did find a small growth, which was clear in color, so she did not think it was endometriosis and burned it off.

Well......two weeks after my surgery I went in for a post surgery consultation. The doctor started off by showing me the pictures of my insides :) and went on to explain where my TWO growths were?!? This was the first I had heard of a second growth. Then she told me that I have mild endometriosis.

As you might suspect I was very sad and disappointed but most of all confused. I thought maybe I heard something wrong at the hospital. I just couldn't believe that I thought everything was ok and all it would take is time to now hearing that I have both PCOS and endometriosis!

Needless to say this has been very difficult for James and me. The day after finding all this out I made an appointment with a fertility specialist. They were able to meet with us really quickly and we had our first meeting with him today. After going over my history he explained that I have less than 3% chance each month of getting pregnant. But this is where the bad news ended!

I have to say that when I was looking at different doctors I told James that they better be an aggressive one, and I have to say he definitely is! My favorite quote he told us today is that situations like mine are pretty much the bread and butter of what they do everyday!

I really feel good about him and I think this is where we should be. He said that with everything that he does he can take our <3% to 30% chance. Average women have a 20% chance each month! Finally the odds will be in my favor!! YES!!! :)


  1. Yeah! Good for you; taking charge of your situation! Only you know your body so stick to you gut instincts. Keep up hope!


  2. What awful news! I would have been so frustrated too! What a blessing to find a doctor that is on the same page as you. Prayers your way that this journey is short and ends with a bundle of joy!! Please keep us posted on your progress.
    Love ya!
