I had my post-op appointment from the D&C today. It wasn’t nearly as bad as I thought it would be. All we really did was talk to the doctor and the nurse. I told her what symptoms I’ve had since then, and they said everything basically sounded normal.
As far as trying again, we’re good to go. She said she’d really prefer us to wait another cycle, but it wasn’t necessarily a bad thing to get pregnant this time. I’m just not sure if we’re going to start just yet though. I don’t know – I’m mixed about it. Part of me says that it will help, part of me doesn’t know if we’re ready. Like I said earlier, we’re just kind of playing it by ear at this point.
I will say, walking back into that hospital again was a little traumatic. I haven’t been there since the day of the D&C. Just little things got me – the smell of the hospital, seeing the same kind of wheelchair that took me out that day, sitting in that waiting room – it was hard. It’s probably a good thing that I (hopefully) don’t have to go back until I’m pregnant again.
So that’s that. And, just out of curiosity, I’ve taken a few extra pregnancy tests over the past week or so, just to see if my hormone level was back at 0 yet. I have this fear that if we get pregnant soon, I’m going to test positive and not believe it – so I wanted to see a negative first. It was testing positive the first couple of times I took one, but I finally got a negative yesterday. I never thought I’d be so happy to see a negative test! (And they were cheap tests off of Amazon, so don’t worry about me blowing a lot of money. 🙂
