Great Motivation...

Yesterday, a co-worker shared with me a FABULOUS story about a women who had endometriosis.

My co-worker is pregnant (and due any day now) and her OB, the wife of my RE, walked into her appointment with the biggest smile. My co-worker asked her why she was so happy and she told her that she had just heard some great news about one of her patients. The OB said she had a patient that came to her for a second opinion. The patient was 40 years old, had experienced infertility for years, and because of her painful menstrual cycles, her doctor was recommending she get a hysterectomy. The OB recommended she see her husband, my RE, for her second opinion. My RE diagnosed her with endometriosis and conducted the surgery to remove it.

ONE MONTH LATER...the woman is pregnant!!! She got pregnant on her OWN, without any fertility treatments.

PRAISE the LORD!!!

This is GREAT motivation for me...Now I'm counting down the days until my surgery!!!

My friend had surgery to remove endo and less than a month later (I think 3 weeks) she went in for a after surgery check up and they told her she was pregnant!! She had also experienced years of infertility!!

Isaiah 30:18
And therefore the Lord waits to be gracious to you; and therefore He lifts himself up that He may have mercy on you and show loving kindness to you. For the Lord is a God of justice. blessed are those who wait for Him, who expect and look and long for Him.

the exact same thing happened to my friend. she had an extreme case of stage 4 endometriosis, had the lap, and got pregnant immediately. :)

My mother had endometriosis (and didn't know it) and she had tried to get pregnant for 7 years and it never happened. Then she had a cyst burst. The doctors went in and found out what she had, removed all the cysts, and the next month she got pregnant with me! Sometimes it takes a while, but it will happen.

I had endometriosis (found while they were looking at a rogue cyst and with NO symptomology!) and I'm so glad they found it and removed it!

That was years ago, and I don't know how much it was preventing me getting pregnant since I was more a 'hostile egg' issue, but PRAISE GOD they found it because I've known many women (my sister included) who have had miscarriages their REs have attributed to endometriosis issues...this now will prevent that!!!

One month to go!!!
