Change of Plans

Everything happened so fast yesterday - all of a sudden I was talking to my RE and the IVF coordinator and my OB and the OB nurse trying to find answers to why my hcg is so high and we can't see anything. I guess they all got freaked out thinking that something could be wrong, like a molar pregnancy or something, and my RE decided that I needed a D&C asap. So. I'm leaving in 5 minutes for my D&C at the hospital. To say I'm terrified is an understatement. But, at this point I'm terrified of having it pass naturally, too, so at least this way it will be over and done with. Surgery just scares me. Everyone reassures me that this is an easy procedure with minimal pain and a fast recovery time. I hope they're right! My regular OB is doing the procedure, so we don't have to travel 2 hours to the RE's office. That's a nice change. I'll update when I can about how it goes. Wish me luck!

Oh honey. All will go well. You deserve this to be over quickly. Wishing you no pain and a fast recovery.

I've had two friends go through it and in the end they were glad they did. If nothing else, I am happy it will be over for you. Take care.
