I went in for my ultra-sound on Wednesday and they found I had a molar pregnancy. This is a pregnancy where once the egg is fertilized it multiplies into a mass of tissue instead of a baby. I was scheduled for a D&C the next day. The D&C went well and the doctor said everything looked very clean. They still have to do a biopsy on the tissue to make sure there is no cancer as this kind of pregnancy can cause cancer. They said they caught it very early, these kind of pregnancies can go for months, so I should not have any problems. I have to go in every week for 6-12 months to have blood taken to measure my hormone levels. With a molar pregnancy hormone levels can reach triple the amount they are suppose to in a normal pregnancy. The midwife said I will be able to get pregnant again. She has had four of these kind of pregnancies and all of the ladies went on to have normal pregnancies. But I do have to wait until my hormones come down to pre-pregnancy levels and my cycle is back to normal which will take several months. And as soon as we get the all clear from the midwife we are going to try again.
I am doing good. I know the Lord is in control and I trust Him completely. I, of course, was very sad the day of the ultra-sound as it was all so shocking. When I went to the hospital on Thursday to have the D&C I felt a little nervous because I had never had surgery before, but I felt very peaceful. I know there were a lot of family and friends praying for me. I am so thankful for how the Lord has brought me comfort in all of this and I want to give Him all the praise for how well I am doing. My sweet husband has been so wonderful and has the next few days off to be with me and help around the house since I am suppose to just rest and try not to do too much. Thanks to all of you who have been praying for me. God is so good and He is giving me joy in Him in the midst of this hard time.
