NovaSure Procedure

NovaSure is the out patient procedure I had done on Friday. My husband took me to the office, I was taken back to a room and told to take 1 Vicodin (oh I was feeling good!). An IV was started and I was given something that basically put me asleep for about 10 minutes. I needed no breathing tubes, nothing. They did put an oxygen mask on me (I think). I woke up, got dressed, and was on my way home. Very easy procedure.

Why Did I Have the NovaSure Procedure?

Now why did I have? Well, without getting into all the gross, nitty gritty details, after having my two beautiful children, not only did my body size change (thanks kids lol), but so did my periods. After discussing things at length with my doctor, as well as, try out birth control pills to help solve the problem, we decided to do the NovaSure procedure. It was either do that or have a partial hysterectomy. Being that I am only 27 years old, I didn’t want to have that kind of surgery just yet.

Before having NovaSure, you have to be 100% sure that you are done having children. Pregnancy after NovaSure would be near impossible and possibly dangerous, to carry a child to term. The chances of getting pregnant after having this procedure are slim, but there’s still a chance nonetheless.

NovaSure Recovery

I will definitely let you know how things go in the next few months after having this done. I have to say, last night I was in probably the worst pain I have ever been in. At some points, Vicodin was not even touching the pain. But I am happy to report that today, the pain has subsided quite a bit. Not 100%, but it’s tolerable.

So definitely check out the site if you are having issues and you think that this procedure might help you. Over the next few months, I will be sure to update you on any problems after NovaSure and any NovaSure procedure side effects I experienced. One piece of advice, pick up a few things to keep yourself occupied. I enjoyed coloring in my adult coloring booknovasure. Trust me!

America’s Got Talent

I am watching the episode that was on yesterday and it is driving me insane to see some of the acts that they put through. It really seems like they are being very political about their choices. For example, they put the 4 year girl through. She is adorable as all get out, but will she win? No. But do they want to be the jerks that break her little heart? Of course not. They’ll push her through and let America vote her out.

Then you have the soldier (who is cute, but the way!). I think he is excellent and I wanted him to go through. Yes he forgot the lyrics. Everyone makes mistakes, but I don’t think they (especially Pierce) wanted to push him through. But they don’t want to not put the soldier through who just got back from Iraq (wasn’t it Iraq?)…they’ll let America do that.

There were so many acts that they cut that, it was shocking to me that they didn’t put those people through.

What are your thoughts on it?

What’s for dinner, Thursday

I haven’t posted any recipes I’ve been making in quite awhile. Today’s is pretty good. And yes, it’s in the crock pot. I try to use the crock pot at least once or twice a week.

Today’s recipe is from the The Busy Mom’s Slow Cooker Cookbook:

Teriyaki Pork Chops

1/3 cup Teriyaki Sauce
1TBS brown Sugar
1/2 tsp ground ginger
4 boneless pork chops

Place pork chops in crock pot. Mix ginger, sugar, and sauce in a bowl and pour over the pork chops. Cook on low for 7-8 hrs


Wordless Wednesday – Mother of ALL popsicles

Run Daddy Run!

Picture this, you look out your family room door wall window and you see a hornet’s nest in the upper corner. What would be the logical thing to do? Most would probably say, “wait until dusk when all of the hornets are back in their nest and spray the nest and knock it down”. But, OH NO…not my husband. What does he do?

First he is at the door wall window hitting the window with the back of his flip flop and laughing like a kid as all the bees got royally pissed off and flew around crazy. Next he goes into the garage and gets the spray and proceeds to walk out our kitchen door wall. By this time I am telling him that he should wait. The words “you’re allergic to bees, remember” did come out of my mouth. Did that stop him? Nope.

So I do what any normal person would do and got my son to stand in front of the door and watch what an idiot his father is. I have never seen my son laugh so hard when he saw his father took off running like a mad man across our backyard. He didn’t quite know why he was laughing but nonetheless, it was funny to see a terrified look on daddies face as he ran crazy around the yard. Little did he know, daddy was running crazy because several of the bees flew at him!

Moral of the story? Listen to your wife. She’s always right. And yet again, today proved it!
