Anesthesia - yuck!

I knew I didn't do well with anesthesia. The last time I was on it was when I got my wisdom teeth out. That was when I was a senior in highschool and I still remember how bad the vomiting was afterward. So I let the anesthesologist know that and he made some ajustments to my meds and it seemed to help. I only threw up once before I left the hospial.

My mom and hubby talked with my doctor after the surgery and she said everything was clear. So I only needed two incisions which was nice! My stomach is still sore from the gas put it in and from the two incisions, but the pain meds they gave me are great!

I woke up from the surgery and after I got more pain meds from the nurse I got a bit emotional. I kept asking myself why I have to go through all this pain - both physical and emotional to be a Mom. The nurses at the hospital were so nice. They said that since I am such a good teacher (I told them I dreamt about my studens while I was put out) I will make a great Mom. They hoped to see me on the 6th floor (must be the maternity floor) the next time I am there. I hope so too!

With every sting of pain I feel in my stomach today I feel it 10 times over in my heart. I hope that since everything is clear that I will be anouncing a pregnancy in January!

I am hoping to call the doctor's office next week to see where we go from here. I am assuming that we will wait until I get Aunt Flo again. I hope we can get started with another IUI as soon into Jan as we can!

Until then, I am sitting on the couch trying to get my dog not to jump on my stomach.
