Is it a Fibroid?

Hello everyone – long time no post.    I hope everyone is doing well.

I had to go in for a procedure yesterday.  I had been having a strange discharge over the last week.  I went to the doctor and the nurse practitioner thought I had an infection and put me on a vaginal gel, but she also noticed something coming through my cervix.  She asked me to see my OB.  So, I did.  She tried to pull at it in the office but couldn’t get it out and then said she needed to evaluate it in the OR.  She said it was definitely part of me and not something left over from my c-section surgery and that it had no blood supply.

I went to the OR yesterday for the procedure.  My DH took me and my Mom watched the little peanut.  I was under general so I didn’t feel a thing.   They think it is a fibroid that my body was/is trying to deliver.   They took out part of it, but didn’t go to the base since my lining was thin.  The OB told me DH to think of it paper meche over a ballon…they got the paper mache out to help relieve the dilation in my cervix (trying to pass it) but the balloon part, attached to my uterus will have to wait.  I have to go back in 4 weeks to meet with the OB and probably will have an ultrasound then.  They send the tissue out to be analyzed and we should have the results in a few weeks.

I noticed it’s weird how I haven’t obsessed about this, haven’t scoured the internet, am not anticipating the 4 month appointment.  I think it’s because this is solely about me.  Not that I don’t care about myself, but it’s not impacting the peanut.  I’m more worried about the anesthesia and have since pumped and dumped twice even though they said I could do that if I wanted to be over conservative. 

Speaking of pumping, it seems my milk supply has regulated to what he eats.  I think there may be an issue going on though, now that he sleeps for 6 hrs straight at night.   I used to pump 7-8 oz with two breasts for 15 mins, now it’s more like 5.   The baby had been gaining 2 oz/day and he’s at 70% for weight (yes, you wouldn’t know he was 4 wks early), but I surmise he’s gaining a little slower now.  That would be ok because they say 1 oz/day gain is good.  So, we’ll see.  Again, see how I’m more obsessed about this than this mass that my body is trying to deliver?

The peanut is doing very well.  He’s smiling and giggling now and is trying to talk to me.  He found his voice a few weeks back.  He mainly talks to me and sometimes my DH and my Mom.  He was baptized a few weeks back.  We’ve been getting him out more, here and there.   We went  to an outside shopping mall a few weeks back and ate outside at and DH and I took him to get clam cakes and chowder and eat by the rocks (got some great family photos there!)  Here are a few recent photos of him…

    So sorry for your fibroid type thing…hope the figure out exactly what’s going on. When my milk adjusted the amount I got during pumping was less too. I think it’s normal when your body finally figures out exactly how much to make. The tuxedo onsie makes me giggle, so cute!
