Baby, Life and Changes Part 1

So it has been quite a while since my last post. In the last year, I have had a baby, quit my job and began a lifestyle change. I'm sure you want to hear about all of these things so I will start with the first thing...
Baby: Let me start this topic from the "top". October 31,2011 I found out that I had some very large ovarian cysts. Endometriosis runs in my family and it was only a matter of time before I would get it. So the next step was to monitor the cysts and get rid of them (they were causing a lot of pain). So Feb 9 I had surgery to remove them. 4 weeks later I had an ultrasound to see how I was healing. When they looked at my ovaries, the Doctor saw 2 cysts bigger than the ones they removed. So I went to a specialist and they recommended I go on a drug to suppress the production of estrogen in my body for a while. My husband and I prayed about it and didn't feel real comfortable with that option. I was scheduled for a pre-op appointment toward the end of May. On May 26 I took a pregnancy test and found out we were expecting. That was an AWESOME feeling. This little child would help my body heal and get rid of the cysts. So, they monitored my cysts in the beginning and saw that they were going away. Fast foreword 9 months... On Jan 29 we welcomed our sweet boy to this world. When they were delivering the baby, the doctor noticed that my cysts were completely gone. I was so happy to hear that. My husband and I cannot be more excited and happy about our new status as parents.

Stay tuned for Part 2 and 3...
