Couples Yoga and Operation
Yesterday, I took the hubs to yoga. We were lucky that the teacher (at the spa) didn’t charge us extra for a private class. To my surprise, he loved it and wants to go twice a week! We started the warm up and then got right into poses with one another! I have never experienced yoga like that. He was placed in child’s pose as I lay spine to spine on him. We also did the double downward dog pose! He also did these on top of me! We did a few other poses and I’m so proud of him because it can be a bit intimidating for a first time yogi to do something really different. But he’s a trooper! We got an hour massage afterwards in the same spa and amazed at the price (with membership). We had an hour yoga plus massage (two people) for 100 USD. Isn’t that kind of insane? So affordable… Granted its not something we will do every week (and this isn’t the cheapest in Shanghai) but it really calmed me down about my upcoming surgery and the spa atmosphere was really relaxing.
We hopped across the street to La Taverna. We never noticed it before so we gave it a try. They have been open for a month, which explains why we don’t remember seeing it. It was delicious and the price was very reasonable. The staff was incredibly kind and well mannered too. The gelato (especially the chocolate) was delicious and according to our waitress, it was imported from Italy!
This morning, I went in for my pre operation blood work and ultrasound. Since my uterine lining is quite thin (after my period), my doctor had a better look at my polyp. It’s a lot bigger than they expected and scheduled my surgery for this Wednesday. Not my birthday (Friday) so that’s good!
She said that the polyp is blocking the egg from being fertilized ad removing it is the answer. I have to take medicine the day of. The medicine will make me start bleeding (so my lining is thin again). They will operate and remove the polyp and then I will be in the hospital to recover.
I told her I’m a little scared, she said its normal. It’s ok to be scared but to be hopeful because…. Other than this polyp, I’m very healthy, young and she has no doubt I’ll get pregnant after this.
So there it is. Surgery on the 20th! It’s going to be one step closer to getting pregnant and starting our family.
Fight fight fight! I can do this!
