Things are finally going my way!
I will not be having surgery tomorrow. My symptoms are inconsistent with gallbladder issues and more consistent with a slightly strained muscle. Possibly due to the all of the pottery I've been doing (it requires a lot of flexing and stressing of the right leg). The fact that they found gallstones was just a coincidence. And even under the worst of circumstances, if for some reason those stones do flair up during a pregnancy, it can be dealt with pretty safely then.
And since my body decided to do it's own thing on it's own schedule, we get to move forward with IVF immediately. I start BCP tomorrow, and my weight will be taken on Aug 4 to determine if they can do the egg retrieval in the office or if I need to go to a hospital facility. Behind the scenes, they seem to have figured out the logistics of doing an egg retrieval on a fat girl so my weight no longer determines a go or no go, but rather the logistics of the go and how much it will cost.
I gotta say, it's going to be easier to lose another 3lbs in the next 2 weeks and get that recorded and done with instead of having to be 3lbs lighter 6 weeks from now. So 2 weeks of intense dieting and then DONE.
Cross your fingers. With the calendar I've been given, my beta blood test to determine whether or not I get pregnant will be on Aug 30th, the one year anniversary of the day I became pregnant with my girls. And any new little ones that might come along will be due the week of our family birthdays.
Yay! We get to do this a month earlier than expected!
