Tough Day!!

Let me start off with everything is ok with the baby. I went to the dr today because I was having a lot of pain in my lower pelvic area. It wasn't my uterus growing bc I know what that feels like. It was something more. I thought it was a bladder infection because it felt just like that just from what I've read online being that I've never having one before.

After my exam, the doctor dropped a bombshell straight onto my lap! He thinks I may have (deep sigh) appendicitis!! What in the world? I'm having a barrage of tests run tomorrow and depending on those results, may have to have surgery to have my appendix removed. Surgery! Tomorrow! I'm still stunned.

They've ensured me that it's safe for me and the baby to be "under" and have this surgery which would be a laporoscopy. Uh, I've already had that surgery twice. Been there. Done that. Worst case scenario is if my appendix were to burst so they're moving quickly and swiftly to avoid that EXTREMELY dangerous situation.

I'm scared to death and cry just thinking about it, but it's still early and I never like to be an alarmist, but I'm terrified. Please say lots of prayers for the baby and me. David will be by my side through it all so I feel good about that. He truly is my rock. I hit the jackpot with him.

I'll post as soon as I know more. Say prayers! Lots of them! We love you all!! (deep heavy sigh)

Oh dear- are you in a lot of pain? I'm so sorry this is happening to you! Geesh, I went in with a similar pain and they told me it was just one of the babies poking away at that area. I hope your doc is just being super cautious. Please keep us posted. I'll keep you in my prayers!

I really hope everything is ok. I've known people that had to have apendectomies (spelling?) during pregnancy and all was fine! I know it's not your best case scenario, but I do think it can be fairly common. I really hope you don't have to go through it though! Sending hugs!
