Doctors Appointment

Well, Ty and I went to the doctor to see what was wrong with me. I have the most painful menstral cycles and I've been having a hard time getting pregnant. And I wanted to get checked to see if I was ok. And the fact that my older sister, Kara, has ovarian cancer makes it that much more important that I get checked. So with that being said we found out that I have 'endometriosis'. Meaning I still can get pregnant but it'll be more difficult. And getting pregnant will help it go away but if I can't get pregnant because I have this then obviously it makes things more difficult. So, he gave me 3 options:
-Get on birth control which would help it go away but it would prevent me from getting pregnant.
-Take a shot that would trick my body into thinking I'm pregnant so it would go away.
-Or get surgery to remove it.
So with some thinking we decided to give the shots a try. As much as I dislike shots it'll definitely be worth it if it works. And if that doesn't work we'll then do surgery. And looks like invetro if nothing else works. I know that I'm supposed to be a mother and I will not give up. Even during these trying times. And I know that things will get better. They always do, right? And I feel so relieved to finally know what's been wrong. And to know that it's not Ty. I feel I am a very blessed girl and I know it will all work out!

I didn't realize that you were dealing with this, how stressful for you. I will keep you in my prayers for sure. I hope the shots work wonders for you.

I love you blog too! Your wedding pictures are gorgeous. I'm also way jealous of your cruise! So fun!

Hey its your neighbor across the street, I guess I just "blog stalked" you.
I had no idea you were going through so much... I guess I need to be a better neighbor.
Anyway, you'll be in my prayers and let me know if you need anything at all.
