No, I won't put pictures of my uterus up. C'mon, give me more credit than that. I'm about the sarcastic funny factor not the make my readers puke factor. If you are a man though, that title would have killed ya, and I simply don't care as you helped make this happen. Well, not you personally for me. But I'm not counting you out for anyone else that you decided to impregnate multiple times.
For me, my Uterus was holding up just fine. Sure it wasn't as strong as it was in my younger years. But it did supply a beautiful home for three beautiful children. Then, my fourth. I think I was supposed to ask my Uterus permission before forcing it to house a foreign growing object. Why else would it decide to turn against me? But I didn't. After L joined us in the world and things down below started to heal and go back to their proper places, my Uterus decided it was time to up and drop out. Um, excuse me. I'm only 33 years old (gasp I revealed my age, life as we know it is over), my body isn't supposed to start failing me for another ten to fifteen years. You know, somewhere around the time of menopause. Darn it, did no one give my body this memo!
So how on earth do I know my Uterus fell out? I'm a woman and cancer (the *insert preferred expletive here*) runs in my family, I need to be aware of any change in, on and around my body. So of course I checked out with a mirror to see how things were healing. That and my kid was 11lbs 4oz at birth, all natural, no pain medication, I had to see the "damage". There was damage alright, there was a bulge where a bulge should not have been. To the computer! I knew what I was looking for as I had heard of it before. The suggestion to help is Kegels. Ladies, if you haven't done kegels before it probably won't do a lick of shit after the damage has been done.
Anyways, when I finally got in to see a doctor (3 months after my son was born), the doctor confirmed what I thought. I have a Prolapsed Uterus. It appears minor, although we are still to keep an eye on it. And until my doctor tells me my Uterus is only going to hit the floor and start doing a jig, I will continue deluding myself with Kegels.
