I'm about to get the snip... 09 Sep 2021. 1pm
More importantly, I won’t be able to have any more babies. Don’t get me wrong, at almost 40 and without a significant other, it's not even something I ought to be thinking about. But here I am... thinking about it. Like all those eggs are just going in the bin, never to be fertilised or have the opportunity to become cute little babies. Probably for the best though tbf.. I need a job and stability to bring a third human up in this world. Anyway, they would potentially have the BRCA gene too so I have spared them that fate at least.
On a serious note though… I’m gutted I’ll be menopausal before I’m 40. Never have a period ever again? Not something I thought I'd say or feel… I’ll let you know when I’m on the other-side which is worse: Period pain or hot flushes!
******** UPDATE ********
Surgery done. Ngl, feeling a bit tender and swollen rn. It was supposed to be day surgery, but I told the surgeon that I would have to go home on my own this evening as the kids were stating at my mums. So they kept me in! #winning Haha... it's like a little all inclusive holiday to me hospital is (minus the sun and the pool obviously) but I'd much rather be woken up every couple of hours to be given morphine than stay at home and wake up every couple of hours with a sweaty child laying on my actual face.
Also... I text my amazing sister to tell her my phone battery was about to die. She came to the hospital at 10pm and delivered not only a phone charger, but a whole midnight feast, a tooth brush, tooth-paste, deodorant, baby-wipes, a book ... AND a lottery ticket!!! How lucky am I? Let it be known, Ros Perry of Nottingham, UK is the best sister in the world! xx
