God didn't promise days without pain, laughter without sorrow,sun without rain, but He did promise strength for the day, comfort for the tears, and light for the way.

Surgery (Laparoscopy)!

Bear with me as this is very hard for me talk about,as it has been a testing of our faith and trust in our creator(God).As some of you know that my husband and I are trying to start a family it is going on 16 mo now that we have been trying and we have come to a bump in the road. I was diagnosed with PCOS(Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome)which does not help the situation, and now they are thinking that I have Endometrosis which is why I might not be getting pregnant either. I have been having really bad cramping and abdominal pain around aunt flo time. So I will be having the surgery in about 2-3 weeks, so by the end of the month.They usually do the surgery at the beginning of the cycle, so I am waiting for aunt flo to start, so we can get the date scheduled and we can move forward. The plan is that if I am not pregnant by May then we will be having an IUI(intrauterine insemination)in that month. I am praying and hoping that I am pregnant before the end of the summer. It is and has been a frustrating roller coaster ride over the past 16 months. I am thankful that I have a caring and supportive husband along with family and friends through this rough time. Please keep us in your prayers.

* Update: I found out today that my surgery is scheduled for March the 25th in the afternoon at 1pm.
