Yahoo!! i am celebrating. The dr. called it a lactation adanoma and wants it out but since we don't know how that will effect my bf-ing in the future because the lumps are usually deep, he agreed to a center biopsy, just taking out the center to make absolutely sure it is benign. I am getting another opinion through a dr who was recommended to me from LLL.

Just wanted to let you know and thanks again!!


blessings,
Beth

That's wonderful Beth!

I've had fibroids removed and had I known what I do today I would have refused to remove them and rather approach it more naturally than invasively. That may not be an option for you but in my case the removal did affect my breast - less milk production and two subsequent babies disliking nursing from that breast.

Best wishes and keep us updated!

thanks Cynthis for the response, I am so thankful that I have the Mothering boards to help me on this journey called parenting.

The happiness I reported here has some sadness attached to it, I have found out through an ultrasound that my pregnancy is not viable. The baby should look a certain way at nine weeks and doesn't, so the dr. said "not viable" they said I would miscarry in the next two weeks.

I think the stress was to much for my babe, But we will try again maybe next year.


blessings,
Beth

Hi Beth-

I'm so relieved to hear your news about the mass. Thank goodness! You and your family have been in my thoughts. I've been hoping that all was well.

I'm also so very sorry to hear the news regarding your babe. I will keep you in my thoughts and hope that you are surrounded by love and support as you and your family walk through this.


My best wishes to you and your family.

Sharon

Thank you Sharon, I am still hepoful ( I know that sounds crazy) the spotting has completely stopped ( it stopped very shortly after it started) and my gut feeling is that my energy was focused on this whole lump thing and my body wasn't focused on creating life. Perhaps I am just prolonging the inevitable, but I will let my body do it's job...what ever that may be right now.

I mean couldn't the Dr. be wrong? Just because he didn't see arms and legs like he should for 9 weeks does that mean this life is not viable?? Just thoughts......

thank you again Sharon for your thoughts and care,



blessings,
Beth

Hi Beth,

I must say that I'm so so so glad that you're still hopeful! I hadn't been sure whether it was appropriate to say something here on the boards--was considering PMing you... and decided that I would personally be sending hopeful healing thoughts toward you and your baby all the while

Before the old boards crashed there were some threads in pregnancy started by several women who had had healthy babies after having them declared dead (no visible/audible heartbeat)by medical professionals.

I had a somewhat different--though similar theme--experience when I was pg w/DD. I had an ultrasound at 17 weeks (because of my advanced age : )and they couldn't see part of DD's brain and thought that she might have trisomy 13. Rather than acknowledge the potential limits of ultrasound (bad visibility, esp w/babies like DD who hang out low in the pelvis) they were trying to prepare us for the real possibility of anencephally or unviable genetic conditions.

We ended up getting an amnio (hadn't really wanted to do this--or even really the ultrasound, for that matter) and a second ultrasound three weeks later. Easily the longest three weeks of my life. I spent lots of time talking with the baby and in meditation, prayer, and reflection during that time--trying to trust my body's, my baby's, and the universe's process. Very difficult but also hopeful and profound period of time. One of those things that I hadn't thought would happen to me. I also did weave together support in case we did learn that she was indeed not viable. I tried to take a sort of a hope and pray for the best but be lovingly and gently prepared for the worst/hardest type of an approach.

They were fortunately able to find the "missing" part of DD's brain three weeks later and the amnio came back totally normal. She was born completely healthy (horrific L and D, but that's another thread)--though must admit that I was intermittently anxious off and on through the duration of my pregnancy (my first and probably only). Just worked to focus on hope and faith on a daily basis.

You will all be in my thoughts. Please let us know how things go.

All the best,

Sharon

Beth, you are such a strong woman! I say ignore the doc's words. If it is as he says then so be it. But I too have heard things similar to what Sharon has so I'd keep up the positive thoughts and focus some positive energy on that baby.

thank you Sharon and Cynthia for your words of encouragement. I am trusting the universe and with all my heart believeing in love and miracles. I hear this song in my head and heart all the time now since Friday "I believe in miracles, love's a miracle and baby you're the one I need I was lost now I'm found..." I think it's by the Four Tops. I will let you know how we fair.


thank you both for your support and kindness

blessings,
Beth
