Twenty Three Weeks Pregnant

31st October 2016

Exam week is almost here!

I have two exams to go and then I’m free! Forever.

I received a confirmation email about the time and location of my exam. As a distance student, I could choose where I want to sit the exam. I chose Thames because it was close to my house. Little did I know, the exam location was a church. The irony is not lost on me.

Another unexciting thing is the biopsy for my left boob. I had been dreading this moment and it finally arrived.

My mum and I jumped in a car and drove over to Hamilton. It wasn’t too exciting. I sat in a waiting room. I filled out a tonne of forms. Most of them asking about my familial history with cancer. I think three different people grabbed my boobs that day. I know they were just doing their job, but it was…uncomfortable.

One hour and two needles later, I was sitting in the recovery area and putting an icepack in my bra. The biopsy definitely wasn’t as bad as I thought it was going to be. The whole thing was guided by ultrasound and I got to see the numbing agent move through my body. That part was actually pretty cool. I didn’t feel the numbing needle or the bigger, scarier biopsy needle. Overall, it was pretty painless. For the first day, anyway.

did feel like someone had punched me in the boob the next day. I was glad I had been restricted to minimal movement for the next 48 hours because I couldn’t lift my arm without being in serious pain. I might have milked it a little bit. I think I needed a bit of extra attention. So sue me.

I spent the rest of the week studying for exams. My final two exams. Ever.

It started in casually reading over notes to panicking and wondering when the hell I learned any of the material. Revising quickly turned into a cram session to see how much I could learn in the next week or two.

It can’t be that hard, right?

  1. God I remember doing uni exams and man they sucked. The stress of those halls and all the essays you have to write, just not fun. Super impressed that you’re managing to do all of that on top of handling a pregnancy, seriously awesome!!!
