So my dad read my post about going to the doctor and sent me an e-mail asking if we are expecting another family member soon.
"No!" I wrote back. "Just a routine visit!"
Funny thing is... and this might gross some of you out, so you might want to stop reading... that I have a fibroid in my uterus - a benign growth - "the size of a three-month pregnancy," my doctor said.
I've had it for several years, and it keeps growing. We are just checking how fast it's growing, to see it it might cause a problem.
Today, I had to have an ultrasound again (I've had two before). The nurse told me the fibroid is "the size of a baby's head." So yes, it really does feel like I am pregnant. Ultrasounds, measurements.... all that's missing is a heartbeat, I guess.
Of course, having watched too many sci-fi movies, I'm thinking it could be an undeveloped identical twin or something else creepy...
"You poor thing," the nurse said. "You must be so uncomfortable!"
The truth is, I haven't felt a thing. I just hope a real pregnancy is this easy. :-)
