So sorry! That is sad news but hopefully it will be nothing major and you can move forward to having another baby. Maybe once this problem is resolved it will be easy for you to get pregnant!

You are living my dream of going back to get my BSN! Keep us posted - will be praying!

Oh Mellisa :( I had been thinking about you recently and wondering how things are - am very sad to read your post and am so very sorry for your stress, worry, and disappointment with the news. Please please update us as soon as you can - I will be hoping and praying that it is "just" endo at opposed to anything much scarier. Don't give up hope - wait until you know what you are dealing with and then fight hard.
On a positive note, how amazing that you have gone back to school. I think I would very much have liked to be a nurse and admire your courage for going back to school. I have thought about it, but at the age of almost 40, think I might think of another path once my children are older. Congrats for being 1/2 way done.
Hugs and good luck wishes for Friday - I will be watching for you post.

Thanks everyone. I have been trying to stay busy. With being a nursing student thats not hard to do lol. I am busy ALL the time. They said I wouldnt have a life for 2 years and they were right. I already know that I do have a hysterectomy, its just a matter of when. She said if the mass is endo then it can wait for a year and half, if its not then I will have to go for

Thank you everyone. I just heard back from the nurse today. Sorry I am a little slow at posting today due to studying for a nursing quiz. She said the mass is endometriosis and said nothing about the enlarged uterus, and the U/S didnt show anything. So I can start meds as soon as I start my period and things will be good till I am done with Nursing school. Then we will talk about if i need a hysterectomy then. I am glad it was not a major thing, but kinda sucks going on birth control just for pain. Hopefully I can get this under control and who knows maybe be off it in 6 months or so and then be ok to try again. Miracles do happen :) I am really happy I can finish out this semester in Nursing school, espeacially since I got through the horrible skills tests lol. I will keep you all updated with any new info.

Well, at least you can still ttc and get prego with endo. I had a friend who did it. I dont know how easy it is, or anything, but it isnt a death sentence. It was so nice to hear from you, even of the update was kind of bad. I wish you the best! Good luck with nursing school, i have toyed around with that idea for the future.
