A very rough night

Ever since my surgery back in November, I have had on/off miscellaneous pain which I am fairly sure is due to my reproductive system being "woke up." The sad reality is that I am fairly sure my endometriosis is rearing it's ugly head again. It comes on so quickly and is just debilitating. Last night around 10:30 I started feeling intense sharp pains. I decided to go to bed and try to ride it out. I writhed in pain for hours and around 1:30 a.m. decided that I was going to the ER.
Roon got up dressed, I got up but the thought of dragging Bean at 2:00 a.m. was so hard. I decided to try to tough it out for another hour - and I think about 3:00 a.m. I was finally able to sleep as the pain started to subside. I am guessing I had a cyst and it ruptured at some point. It has been a LONG time since I have had this pain and I forgot just how horrible endometriosis is to have. The pain is comparable to when my appendix ruptured...so it is very hard to put in words.
I am going to the Dr. tomorrow to see what is going on. I am worried that IVF may have stirred all this up. I also worry that my body is trying to tell me that IVF is a fleeting reality for us.
Please pray that my Dr. appointment goes well and we can get this back under control.
