So I had a "procedure" done.
I had an IUD put in.
I was nervous before. Understandable. Right?
Psyching myself out for who knows what.
I had no idea what to expect. There are horror stories. There are stories where it goes as planned and done, no pain, no issues, just like that.
That wasn't me.
Of course not.
Nothing can be "normal" with me. I'm totally ok with that.
this was not the best feeling in the world
First turns out my uterus is abnormally big.
Then a little on the thick side.
so 'splains why the heavy tom (I told ya tmi)
which was the reason for the IUD
The scissors on the table look like they came from a stable or something. I'm pretty sure I said they intimidated me. Out loud.
OH yea... my uterus it tilted waaay forward, or back, forward I think. I get confused.
so.. she has to kinda dig in there. That was fun.
Nurse: "you doin ok"?
After a few minutes of that I feel my ovary rip away from my body.
She gets the IUD in and were almost done, then pop, out it comes.
So.. the nurse runs to grab another one.
The dr is apologizing profusely but I'm thinking, no biggie. A little pain and shaking never killed anyone.
I was shaking by this point.
Nurse: "Still doin ok?"
So the second try works. Just. Like. That.
Snip, oops cut me, snip.. the threads are cut and I am done.
Then I am asked if I need to lay there for a few minutes. I think I'm good. No worries. The pain is over.
this is the good part.
I sit up.
beside the table
That was the most awesome experience since childbirth ever, my friends. And I had to c-sections.
Aaand back to work I go, me being such a trooper and all.
A little cramping the rest of the day but nothing horrible.
I managed to get to the gym and have a light workout on the elliptical and then the cross trainer with minimal pain.
so far so good. :)
Have a great day!
