After my son was born in July 2000, I started back on bcp following post-pardum. Zackery is a healthy little boy! Last year about this time, I started getting that "yearning" for another baby. Although dh & I decided a long time ago that I would absolutely have to quit working when and if we had a second child. (During all this time between Zackery's birth and now, our goal has been to get our finances in sound order.) We did just that. But, DH wasn't ready yet. No problem...I know I have to be "ready" too in my mind.
We decided this past summer that it was time. I went off bcp August 1st. My first cycle was 21 days. My second cycle was 21 days. I had my annual gyn visit. Everything was great. Dr. does internal u/s as standard practice and everything looked good. My third cycle was 16 days. (I was coming unglued...I'm a 28 day'er all the time.) At the same time as that 16 day cycle (at its end), I got a bad virus. Then had pain like never b/4. What could this be? My primary physician was looking at my gall bladder. Turns out that wasn't it. After one bd session, I knew it was my ovary. Yep, I was right. A large cyst (of which I've never had b/4) on my right ovary. I was in shock. One week later, at a follow-up visit...it was GONE! *clapping* 32 day cycle followed. I bought ovulation tests this time (never used them b/4). 28 day cycle followed. That's where I'm at right now.
O'd this week. We hit the mark. I'm praying!
