I just wanted to echo what Elizabeth said. I also had my IUD taken out recently, and it really was SO easy and painless. The doctor just poked around for a second (completely painlessly) and then said "there it is!" and held it up. I was like, "that's IT?". He had pulled it out and I hadn't even realized it! I hope that yours goes just as smoothly!
Like Elizabeth also said, you can get pregnant RIGHT AWAY after having it removed, depending on where your cycle is. I got my IUD out on May 26, and I'm now 6 weeks pregnant. (I O'd only a week, maybe 2, after getting it out, but you can O the day after and still get pregnant). I hope that you have the same "luck"! [;)] So be ready, just in case!
Good luck tomorrow!!
