Yes you heard right. We are content with two babies at this point in our lives. So unless I have a slight lapse in sanity, no babies for at least the next 5 years. I went last Friday and got Mirena put in. The procedure itself took about 5 minutes and really wasn't all that painful. I mean there were a couple points where it didn't feel great, like when they measured my uterus... the inside of it...yeah not fun.
One thing that was a little strange, they sprayed a numbing spray and it oddly enough smelled like cherries. Why? I'm not quite sure, but ok. Then they inserted the IUD and that stung a bit, but was literally like 10 seconds worth of pain. Then they cut the strings and I was on my way.
I really was expecting a lot more pain for some reason. I thought I'd be keeled over in bed with a heating pad and box of midol, but I only really had a slight back ache for a couple hours then nothing.
So far so good other than a little breakout on my chin. Although I would like to say, if Mirena insists on giving me back my skin from my teenage years, could it at least bring me back to that weight as well? Would be a nice trade in my opinion.
