Pregnancy and drinking/smoking??

Dec 15, 2013 - 9 comments

Ok so I know I never been preggo before but I'm pretty sure you're not supposedly to drink and smoke whole preggo. Even if someone doesn't know you would think it would be common sense. I say that to say this.

Yesterday we had a work Christmas party and we all went out to eat. One of the girls is 4 months preggo. Just a lil history on her she had suffered from numerous miscarriages. She has a 12 year old but every time getting preggo after that it has ended in miscarriage. You would think someone who has suffered from this would do anything in there power to try to be as cautious as you can when it comes to your pregnancy. Last night she ordered a sangria. She kept putting the disclaimer out there that she is allowed to have it. She said is what nothing but fruit juice and red wine. Then when another co-worker went to smoke she went outside with her. My thing is this even if you're not going outside to smoke why go with her and out yourself and your child in harm. If I'm not mistaken you should avoid being around smoke while preggo. The other day she was crying at work cause her dr office called and she was crying and she needed to come right away. She came back the next day and it seemed like everything was fine.

Don't get me wrong I'm not judging but I just find it hard to show sympathy to someone who puts their self and their child at risk knowing when you had problems in the past.  Just needed to vent about that. Ladies what your input and please correct me if I'm wrong.

Post surgery 10-22-2013 (Fibroid Removal)

Oct 22, 2013 - 1 comments

We'll ladies I finally have some time to update you all on surgery and where we go from here.

So all in all surgery went really well. I had surgery on Thursday 10-10-13. I stayed overnight because the RE wanted to observe me overnight. I went home Friday morning after I was able to use the bathroom. During surgery my blood count went down so I had to get blood drawn twice while I was in the hospital to see if it was going back up. I had to go back on Saturday at 7am to get my blood drawn again. I called Monday to get the results and my blood count was still low but It was enough. I'm such a hard stick when it comes to drawing blood so it was terrible. Every time they put the needle in the vein would disappear. I was so frustrated. I got stuck stuck 7 times in one hand 5in the other.  3 times in one arm and I believe 2 in the other. I have a bruise on my right arm from the IV. It looks horrible. It looks like I was beaten up. Hopefully that goes away soon.

Anyway back to the surgery. The recovery process wasn't all that bad. Between the side effects from the pain mess and anesthesia I was high feeling horrible. I was very light headed slight headaches off and on couple days. I was very naceous up until a few days ago. I'm finally feeling better. I am back working just taking it easy not trying to do too much.  

I had my post-op appt on 10-16-13. My RE said all my scars looks good and I'm healing up nicely. (I had four small incision. One in my belly button and three in my bikini area).  During the surgery he tried to do hsg test but couldn't get the dye to go through and he said it could be from swelling cause of the surgery. So now I have to wait three cycles which will be around December and we when do another hsg. I'm really nervous about because my thing is this if my tubes were opened wouldn't it worked he tried during surgery? I been looking at YouTube videos and freaking me out how some ladies experience. Some say they have pain and others don't.

Ladies feel free to comment and respond. If any of you ad hsg done and your experiences with it.
