Hello, This is my first journal. I have been reading your journals for the last couple monthes and have enjoyed the stories and wisdom from your experiences. My dh and I have been married 11 years. We have three blessings: Ds 11, dd 8 ds 6. Dh felt we were finishedafter the third and had a vasectomy in May/99. (I was not finished yet). Well, time took its toll, and we both (mainly me) really wanted to continue having more children. He so lovingly agreeded and we pursued a reversal. Oh, also just a little side note my dh had always expericed a small cramp on the vas tube during ejaculation. The Doc had said it was scare tissue and can happen after a vascectomy. Ya, I know bummer for him. Well, come to find through my reseach (which by the way I spent about a year) on reversal procedures that it also cures any pain due to a previous vascectomy. I was so excited that we could eliminate his stupid pain that always showed up during my special time with him ( uhgg ), and God willing everything will get reconnected and we can start having more babies!!! yeah! Well that is what happened. In July/05 He had a sucessfull reversal. I could not believe my eyes at the 4 week check for him when we saw all his swimmers through the microscope. We were ready to get to business. Know comes the fun part. for the first coulple monthes we had allowed it to "just happen" Well, last cycle I decided to try a opk, and keep record of my temps. This is something I learned from reading in all of your posts. Here I am at 14po and really hoping this will be the month. But, I took a ept this am and it was a bfn. My temps are still up and I do not have any signs of af. The only thing differant about this cycle is my bb's or sooo sore, I mean I can not sleep with out a bra on. They have been like this for about week and half now. I even had to go buy and bigger bra without a wire cause my old one was tight and the wire was buggin my bb's. Well anyways, I am happy to be part of the posting family now and I hope to write with a BFP soon.
My schmooky and I married 3/94
Af showed up last night . I thought I would have been more upset then I was. My dh lovingly held me and said," It not Gods time this month for us to conceive" He is right it will happen in Gods timing. We are sure going to continue our part in the plan and on with another month of ttc! Today I took my temp upon rising and starting logging another cycle in my handy dandy notebook next to my bed. I got up and had a cup of coffee (which it was yummy). I picked up my perscription of clomid this morning after church. This is our first month with clomid. My Doc wanted me ttc for 6 months then we would go on 50mg of clomid for three months. I am assuming he will up the dose after the three month mark. Not sure though this is all new to us.
Are there any side affects of clomid or anything I should now about while taking it? If you have taken it and have any advise I would much apreciate it. Thanks....much baby dust to all of you ttc!!!!
My dh is going to sa#2 this week. We are hoping for an increace in We had our first sa in Oct/05 The Doc said it will continue to increase as the months go by. After a reversal the count will take time to go up.
I finished my clomid and did not experience any side effects. I am using the opk now and hoping to o in the next couple days. My dh had his second s/a and it was not as great as we had hoped. His Doc in L.A. wants to see him right away for further examination and analysis. We are hoping scar tissue has not set in on his vas tubes. This 2nd s/a should have been better then the one in Oct./05 but it wasn't. We ordered Proxeed and he will start that next friday. He is to take it twice a day for three monthes. For now we decided to only bd the day after the opk turns dark. His sprem count is low, so to much bding can reduce it even more. I am not loosing hope!!! Yesterday I brought up adoption as a option for us. My dh encouraged me not to give up hope yet, he said not until the Doc says there are no sperm should we give up and persue other options. He is right. I just feel like this is a blow to our dreams, however no matter the sperm count it only takes one to conceive!! We will press on with ttc. I can't wait for that stick to turn dark, cause we sure could use some good bding now!!
All day yesterday I had cramps. I really felt like I was getting ready to o. When i took the opk it said neg. We went ahead and bd'd anyway. I really did not want to wait anymore! I wonder if you can miss your LH surge and get a negative? Well I am going to keep using the opk and see what is reads over the next couple of days. It would be great if this was the month to get a BFP!
It is getting late. I am going to read other journals now and head to beddy bye.
I am in the 2ww now. I received in the mail the hcg tests I ordered from the web site. It says to wait 10 days after o to test. I will try to keep myself busy and not think about the days. This is always the hard part. According to the opk I ovulated two later this cycle then last. I am due for my af Feb. 21st. I pray she does not come! My Dh has a meeting with his urologist next Wednesday. I hope it goes well.
Today was a great day! I noticed my cm is very creamy and white.(?) And my face is breaking out. Usually this happens right before my af. I hope it is because my hormones are changing maybe a bfp next week.!!!
I hope, I hope, I hope!
It was a great weekend! We headed to the mountains all day Sunday! It was great to be with the pines!! It is great. I am such a mountain girl at heart. What a joy to watch our children run, play and climb in such a beautiful surrounding. O.K. back to reality, It's monday and I do not have any af symptoms yet. Usually I do have sore bb's by now. I have felt some tugging in my lower ab and some pressure down there too. I am trying not to read to much into it.
Blessings with lots of babies to all who cross this site!!!!
