    So we got the call to go in early which was exciting. I was very calm going there and waiting for my 'turn'. The nurses were wonderful. I moved from the place where they take vitals and put an IV in to the second 'waiting area'. After a bit I wanted to pee one last time and guess who shows up. AF. HOw lovely. I was so embarassed of course i'm sitting in hospital gown with no undies....... anyways they took me into the or and I was calmer than I thought i'd be. THey arn't lying when they say you will fall asleep ina few seconds. I think it was only one or two breaths and it was lights out. After recovery they moved me into another room and dh was pacing the halls waiting for me. I felt fine, only cramping which they gave me morphine for. Got home and went to bed. DH took me to sit outside in the sun tonight. Nice to get fresh air.

    My RE came to see us before we went home. He showed me pictures he took of my guts and gizzards!!!!!!!!!!!!! I wasn't expecting that but it was really neat. I saw the inside of my uterus, each tube and ovary. My right ovary was the size of an egg but left was tiny. He says its just the way i am and there is nothing hindering my ttc in his opinion. I have a 1cm fibroid on my uterus and he says it wont give me problems ever... I even saw my appendix and intestine. His dx.... i'm perfectly normal and no endo. He wants to see me in a few weeks to make more plans i guess and discuss further while i'm sober.

    I couldn't pee when i got home. I felt the urge to pee but it was like i couldn't relax or was nervous.... I had to give up. an hour later i tried again and was able to pee a bit. then later I couldn't again. Now i'm fine peeing but it still feels funny.

    Tomorrow I get to see my incisions for the first time. They are covered up and he said no peeking till tomorrow. I was worried about the lower one but I think he did it below the hairline. (hope so)

    Thanks again. I'll vent later once i'm feeling better at the fact there was no reasons given for my infertility or anything that can be fixed. For now i'm just tired.

    Today I go back to work. Dh said I should have one more day off and I agree. I know other women bounce back and work but not me. I'm tired. Had a horrible sleep last night. I even took 2 tylenol 3's to try to knock me out but that didnt work.

    At least I dont start till 11am.

    My incisions look awesome. Actually I can't even see the one in my belly button. He must have gone right into the deep part ofmy 'inny' and it won't be visible to anyone. The lower one still has a little tape on it but looks VERY small and its well below the hairline. I was worried about that. I'm so relieved, not that its a huge deal but you know.

    Hi everyone. I had a nice day today with the family. Went for a nice walk with dh around the neighbourhood. Had a nice bbq dinner at home. My incision down below is getting a little sore and pink. Not bad but itchy. I remember mom teaching me that sores itch when they heal.

    I still see the stitches, they are supposed to be disolving ones........ only two stitches.

    Talked to my parents tonight. Its their 45th anniversary today Two weeks till we go visit them. Wish I had some news to share........

    I ended up getting testing the next day and after two min it was neg. I put it aside and checked it that night and it had become pos. I know preg tests can't be read after the time but i trust opk's. I tested again and it was neg, alot lighter. So we bd that night and the next. BUT FF says I had o'd the day before my pos opk. So who knows. I'm in the 2ww. We will be at my parents up north when its testing time. What a nice gift for them a bfp would be

    Just got home from vacation last night. I'll write more about that later. Just made an appointment with the nurse at the RE. She is going to teach us how to do the injections that we plan on starting in a few months with IUI. The training will cost $200 alone
    I'm excited that we will already have done the class before my next RE visit which is in mid august so there will be not much of a delay till doing the cycle. DH and I have to get bloodwork done today too. I'm excited to know things are moving along with that.

    My vacation started in Tezzeron Lake
    http://www.hellobc.com/NR/rdonlyres/...11C/0/BC01.pdf
    the lake is close to the centre of the province... find Prince George, look west and north of Ft. St. James, the second lake north of there is where we went.

    Anyways we rented two cabins and a camping site. We also rented a boat. It started out with me dropping our heavy suitcase on my big toe. Everyone thought it was broken. It wasn't, just bruised immediatey and was sore. We went fishing and I got wind/sun burn on my face, oh and the mosquitos were out in full force. DSS got sick the first night and my mom took him into town to see the dr who said he had a throat infection and gave him antibiotics and told them to go back on vacation he'd feel better soon. So back they came........... last day there, dh took me and dss out on the boat fishing by ourselves. It was sunny and windy. we were looking forward to our own time together. BUT.............

    after sailing 10-15 min down the lake we dropped our lines and I caughed a fish. Gave the rod to dss so he could 'catch it'. while we were reeling it in dh's line caught a fish.... it was chaos. Then all of a sudden I see this green thing poking out of the water going by me..... I soon realized it was a reed............we were nearing shore about to hit ground!!! I screamed to dh, he freaks out and got us away from the shore but not far. We still had the fish on the line but then the waves started crashing into the boat. It took us about 2 min to decide we had to start heading back to camp. It was immediately scary. We decided to just let the fish stay on the line and we'd drag them back in the water. I considered cutting the line and letting the fish and lure go but..... so dss held one rod while we headed back (the other had a small fish it just laid there)
    It seemed like we were going but not making any progress moving, the waves kept pushing us around and back to shore. We had a walkie talkie and I radio'd camp and said we needed guidance getting back and our location. (im sure they heard the panic in my voice) Dad told me to just head back and head into the waves and then the radio battery died. DH freaked out. The boat was so hard to manuver i went back to sit beside him and tried to steer myself. It was so hard to do. I ended up just sitting beside him and shouted commands to him. Dh cried out in fear... DSS stayed calm and I made myself stay calm as I knew it would take that to get us home. A few times the boat moved to be parallel to the waves and it almost capsized us. I honestly considered if it would be easier to bail and let someone come get us. One big wave crashed the back of the boat and soaked dh which freaked him out even more. We couldn't just head back into shore, we had to pass the dock because of how the waves were going. If we headed back the waves would have turned us over. So this whole time im thinking there might not be a chance for us to turn around..... we had gone far and then all of a sudden the waves went a bit softer and I screamed TURN, dh listened and then we were heading back into the dock now with the waves behind us. I knew then that we might be safe. My dad, sis, niece and brotherinlaw were all waiting for us. We just got off the boat in shock, then my dad put his arm around me and I broke down bawling. We went to the fire and we shook for an hour. DH went to bed for another hour and when I saw him we just held each other. DSS said he knew we'd be safe because he was praying the whole way. We drove back to my parents a few hours after that and the whole day and evening I was still reeling from it.... total shock and fear at what almost happened. Pictured my parents having to pull our bodies out and it would have killed my mom literally.....

    So thats that part, the rest went 'pretty good' Reshingled my parents roof, took my mom to the er because she might be having a heart attack, they sent her home, (she has congestive heart failure) then we took her back to the dr on monday and they did more tests, she gets the results tomorrow and I was really scared for her now.......
    Then we drove home the 12 hours to our home.

    Friday Dh and I go to the RE's for our injection class.

    The injection class was exciting. I was nervous.. the nurse was great. She spent 45 min with us going over everything. We practiced mixing and then she took the cap off the needle. I got a little scared. Then we practiced injecting a foam thing that resembled skin/flesh. I did it but got a little shocky feeling. Not totally faint but you know. Dh had no problem so he says he will give me the injections. I imagine i'll be like the other girls, after a few days take over but it helps to know he can do it. Looks like by the date i'm about to O soon. I havn't used any opk's or temped this month. I stopped taking my supplements for almost a week but i'll start up again. My re reccommends we dont use anything except prenatals during the cycle and I dont want to quit cold turkey that month. I dont have many pills left of one hormonal balancer so I guess I can finish the bottle and keep taking the vitex.
