Wow.....

Our wedding day - I knew my belly had gotten large,
but I didn't realize how large until I looked at our wedding pictures.
 
I finally bit the bullet, made an appointment for my "annual"--it was just 6 months late.

After giving the doctor a list of my "female" complaints she stated it sounded like I have uterine fibroids.  After a full pelvic exam she informed me, "your big belly is the result of an enlarged uterus."  Not sure what was more of a shock, the doctor rudely telling me I had a "big belly", or learning I had an "enlarged uterus".

Once again, looking at our wedding pictures, yep, that belly is big and looks like we may have "had" to get married as I look like I'm 3 or 4 months pregnant!

I have spent the morning researching "Enlarged Uterus" as well as "Uterine Fibroids".  My brain is so full of information.  So many things make sense now.  Constant urge to pee.  Despite being "on plan" with Weight Watchers, not being able to loose weight.  The weight gain in the belly when I've always gained weight evenly through out my body.  Seeing zero results after a month of yoga.

Ultrasound scheduled for Friday, after that we'll figure out a course of action......

Wow....
