Tick, Tick, Tick, BOOM!

Does anyone else hear that loud ticking? Well it’s official, my hysterectomy surgery date is now set for June 14th. I was suppose to under go the surgery in February but between all the sickness in the house and having to take a few different kind of medications it got put on hold. After some debating and prayer Matt & I decided that it’s best to put it off till June. The Doctor was a bit taken aback when we told him of our decision last week. He was ready to have me go in the beginning of March. But since he feels there was no major risk of the cervical cancer spreading and I will be under observation and medication he agreed that it will be easier on the family waiting till school is out. Thankfully I will be able to keep my ovaries so I won’t have to go through menopause. Sorry if this is TMI but I have also been getting my “monthly visitor” every TWO WEEKS since having Madeline & it is not pleasant! So seeing the light at the end of the vaginal tunnel is a welcoming sight!

BUT although Matt & I decided that we don’t want to have any more children my biological clock is TICKING! It makes me kind of sad that I definitely won’t have the opportunity of having another bundle of joy. And although I really did not enjoy being pregnant since they were all so stressful, it kind of makes me tear up. In reality I think it’s the fact that I won’t have anymore pregnancy announcements, gender reveals, & name reveals, to do. Not to mention the fact that a little boy would be so fun to dress up in little bowties & suspenders. On the other hand, good-bye periods, cramps from hell, bloating, mood swings, cravings, and pap smears ! Plus good-bye cervical cancer once and for all! It didn’t ruin my wedding, my blessing of motherhood, and it won’t ruin my time with my beautiful baby girls!

I am sure that I will touch more on this subject as June approaches. But wanted to give an update on my lady parts Mamma Drama.

*BTW this is not the big exciting news announcement I will be blogging about. I am still waiting on the official word to post it but it is coming soon!*

  1. I had a partial hysterectomy 2 years ago and it was the best thing I ever did and also the hardest. I knew I didn’t want more children from my past pregnancy issues but it was still very emotional. I found a website “hyster sisters” that was funny, kind, and empathetic. Wishing you the best, hang in there!!

  2. Since you’re hysterectomy is not until June, you have plenty of time to be very prepared. One thing I wish I had before my hysterectomy was the (free) HysterSisters booklet (I don’t work for them, just liked the booklet).

    Here’s a link to the FREE HysterSisters booklet … I think you can read it online, just need to join the group which is also free … I got mine in the mail 2 years ago when I had my hysterectomy. Now it’s a PDF file online.

    And I have a whole blog about my hysterectomy experience in case you are interested in reading it while you have time to prepare for your big day!

    While I reasons for hysterectomy may be different, I talk about the emotional, surgical and post-op experience of hysterectomy. Please keep us posted on your surgery! 🙂
