I've got renewed hope, yet again. I called my drs office about my post op appt because it was in the middle of the day and the place is almost an hour away. I was checking to see if they could change it to the morning or afternoon, but they couldn't and the only option was to push it back a couple of days. I didn't want to do that because it was practically the day I was going to ovulate and I was hoping that he would let us ttc this month. I asked the nurse to see if the dr thought he was going to give us the go ahead, based on what he saw during the lap. If he wasn't thinking of giving the go ahead, I was going to move my appt. Luckily enough, she caught him right after we spoke and he said that he was thinking of giving us the green light.
Not only does that mean, we're practically cleared to give it a run this month. It also means to me that the damage to my tube wasn't that bad. Yes! I don't want to get too far ahead of myself, but I really needed to hear some good news and I'm counting this as the start of it. Now I just have to wait until next Wednesday. I need to be patient and I will do my best.
Nothing really new on my end. Just counting down the days until my appt on Wed. Meanwhile, I can feel things starting to happen. Its either CD 10 or 11. AF arrived on the 21st, but it didn't really kick in until the next day. I'm going to start the OPK on Sunday. I usually o anytime between CD16-19. I guess I'm a late bloomer.
So here's my situation. I'm not really sure what's going on. CD1 was either the day of my lap on the 21st or the day after. I don't know which one to go with. I was very lightly spotting on the 21st and it was really heavy the next afternoon after the lap. That was either AF or from the surgery. Either way, it lasted about a week and was over on Tues/Wed of last week. On saturday, I noticed some minor spotting. I put a liner in just in case. As the day progressed, it got heavier and I even started to cramp a little. Now its a full fledged period again. I have to wear pads still because of the lap and that's just downright gross to me. Plus, I'm worried. Why is this happening again? I called the dr on call, but he hasn't called back again. I POAS this morning for the OPK and the second line is just started to show, but barely so I feel like I still have time for this month, but its just weird. If CD1 was the 21st, then today is CD13. We'll see what the dr says, assuming he'll call me back. Its been 20 minutes.
I'm a little bummed by my visit. After they checked my bp, weight and temp, he brought me into his office to review the results. I did get to see some cool pictures of my ovaries and fallopian tubes. I'm not easily grossed out so that was kind of cool. When he showed me my right tube, he showed the picture of just the tube and then the picture of the dye coming out. When he showed me the left one, it was the same, but there was no dye. I forget the terminology he used to explain what he did to it, but he said it looked just fine after. Basically, it wasn't significant enough to worry about. I know that's good news, but I really wanted that to be the explanation for why we haven't gotten pg.
He gave me my options, which were the same prior to the lap and it was a bummer. Continue with IUI, try a super IUI or IVF. I asked what he would do if he was in my situation and he said IVF. I'm not opposed to that, but I know that dh won't be too keen. I think I'm going to try natural for a while. My SIL gave me a fertility monitor and it will take it a couple of months to recognize me. I'm going to start on my next cycle and see what happens. If we aren't pg by Christmas, I'll make a decision then.
So I'm finally not bleeding from the lap. They had to give me meds to make it stop and now I don't know where I am in this cycle. I haven't o'd yet and its practically CD27. Craziness! Hopefully things will be back to normal. I need normal right now!!
I think things are gearing up. I've got some killer pains in my lower back. That either means that I'm getting ready to o or AF is around the corner. Now I know that can't be true...I hope. I just got over my 3 week period and I just don't think I could take more. I keep on forgetting to do the opk. I think I need to accept that this month is a bust. All I know is that I'm so hormonal right now I could lose it.
Of all days for things to happen, this morning dh really ticked me off. We've talked about renewing our vows on our 5th anniversary, but I never heard him really try to plan it. He would mention things in passing, but nothing significant. So today, he just lost it about its just another thing he's wanted to do that I've shot down. WTF. I always plan everything and I'm sick and tired of it. I just thought that it was his thing and he would take care of it. I want to do it to, but I just want him to take initiative for once. I really believe that I married the laziest man in creation.
Anyhow, I told him that he needed to look into places/dates. My guess is that it will never happen and that's really a shame, but I refuse to organize it. I know its a bit childish, but I don't care. Its his turn to pull some weight in this relationship. Enough of my rant, I'm off to Target.
I'm so confused right now that I don't know what to think. I'm getting some interesting cramp/twinges. I think I'm o'ing. The weird part is today is CD30. However, its not too accurate because of the lap. All I know is that I'm in TTC limbo right now. I've got a fertility monitor that my sil gave me and I'm ready to go, but I just need AF to arrive so that I can start.
I got my answer this morning...AF arrived right on time. I really didn't think that was going to happen because of the medicine they had given me to stop the bleeding. They said it would mess up my schedule, but I guess it couldn't tackle me. Now here's for the crazy part. You would have thought I saw a pg line this morning when I discovered AF's arrival. I was so happy that I couldn't stand it. Granted I would have been happier to see that I was pg, but I have a fertility monitor that I've been anxious to use and now I can start.
Since I didn't expect the witch to arrive today, I was completely unprepared. I had to run to the drug store at 7:30 this morning to get batteries so that I could start the monitor up. I was like a mad woman getting ready for work so that I could go to the drugstore too.
Now I'm ready for everything to begin. I don't have my hopes too up for this month since the monitor has to recognize me, instead of my sil, but I'm still excited. Plus, its almost Friday. Happy almost TGIF!
Holy cow...AF is kicking my a$$. I don't think it has ever been this bad before. Besides the vicious cramps, I feel like I've spent most of my day running for the bathroom. I just feel ickie overall. I usually don't do too much over the weekends with regards to a social life. I just haven't had a chance to meet too many people. Why is it so much harder to make friends as we get older? Anyhow, we have a bbq to go to tonight and a shower to go to tomorrow night. What I'd rather do, is crawl up on the sofa in my pjs and chill. Oh well, what can you do?? Maybe I'll be pleasantly surprised and have fun.
