A quick update....

Not sure if anyone reads this ole thang anymore, but I thought an update would be appropriate.... I had laparoscopy on Thursday to take a look at my internal organs, as well as a tubal patency test to check the function of my tubes. The tubes are fine, uterus is fine, but my ovaries are not. They should look like oysters, grey, dull, instead, they look like pearls, white, shiny. More than likely, full of cysts. My OB/GYN (a NEW one, not the old one that told me I was too fat to breed) is sending me to a specialist. I'm a little sad. He is not only my doctor, but my mom and grandma as well. My grandma even had an appointment with him the day before my surgery, in which he proceeded to tell her he would not rest until he made her a great grandmother. He's a wonderful doc, and will treat me if I get pregnant, but he's afraid he can't do enough for me to GET me there.

So, off to the specialist I go...


  1. Good luck to you & I will keep you in my prayers!!!

  2. Good luck! Are they sending you to a reproductive endocrinologist? Or some other type of specialist?

  3. Thanks Mitzi. I need all the help I can get! And Krystle, I'm not sure yet - I got all this info secondhand from my mom and husband, who talked to my doctor after the surgery. He was gone by the time I came to - I have a follow up appointment Thursday to have my stitches out and talk about my referral. Will know more then. I'm trying to keep a positive outlook. I've gotten pregnant before, and our loss wasn't anything other than a fluke... so I'm holding hope that something can be done!
