Update on the giant cyst (12cms... )

So, I saw the specialist today. 

She does not feel confident with any of the doctors up here trying to get russell the cyst out  laparoscopically. She feels it needs to be an open surgery because of how big it is. (it is apparently 13cm by 10 cms is what the MRI showed ultrasound showed 12cms) 

The cyst is so big now, and baby Hunter/my uterus is so big that she feels there is no real room for the cyst to twist. She said the pain is probably from it trying to twist but since there is no room it can't. 

Since my mother in law will be here for a few weeks around baby Hunter's birth helping clean my house and handling my older son the doctor and I feel it will best to do a c-section and the cyst removal at the same time. 

I will be working with my midwife, as well as another doctor to determine the c-section/surgery date but the specialist is hopefull I can wait until 37-39 weeks. 

She said as my uterus grows there is a chance of the cyst getting pushed down and blocking the cervix causing an emergency c-section.. And since I will have to be open anyways for a surgery to remove the cyst it is best to just do them both at once.

Not fun... but this outcome is a lot better than what we had thought when I was in the hospital.. It went from being "Oh lets get it out now" to "No, I THINK it can wait but see a specialist to be sure"   to "It can wait until 37-39 weeks and then we will take baby and cyst at the same time"  

So much better outcome :)

I was told to go to l&d around the 27th of feb because the on call nurse said it sounded like I had a kidney stone. 

The pain is sometimes just a low achey pain and other times is a sharp random ping of high pain that comes and goes off and on
