TTC after DH's Vasectomy Reversal

My husband just had a vasectomy reversal on Aug. 1, 2006 with Dr. Anthony Thomas. He is an excellent doctor. My DH goes for his first semen analysis next Monday, Aug. 28th. I am nervous but also very excited! I am praying for good results and hopefully we will conceive our first month of trying! I am having AF right now, I'm on cd #3. I am going to use an OPK, the Answer brand, to help detect my ovulation. I hope it works. I am thinking about charting my bbt but I'm not sure if i am desciplined enough to do that.

I am drinking a starbucks cafe mocha, these are the greatest! I have switched to decaf so hopefully I won't hurt my chances with ttc next week. I am realxing since the kids are back in school. I can't wait for DH to get his SA results on Monday. I am really excited to ttc! This will be our third child together. I better get going, I've got housework to catch up on.

I have been spending time with my family today. I am trying to keep DH from doing anything this weekend so he can have a good specimen to give them on Monday for his first SA. I really hope it goes well. I am just cleaning and watering the grass. I can't wait to ttc next week.

I went to church with my family today. I prayed for all of us to have good health and I also prayed for my DH's SA to be great. Tonight we are going to make a pizza. It's the best pizza since it's homemade. I can't wait for my ovulation day to get here.

Aug. 28, SA today at 3:15 pm!

My DH's SA is today! I am both excited and nervous. I am praying for good results and to conceive quickly. I know that it is only by God's grace that my DH and I will have another child. I am trusting in Him to bless us and guide us in our vr journey. I am going to be staying here and my DH is traveling alone to have his post-op visit. I wish I could go but I have to take care of our kids. They started school last week and I don't want to take them out just to go to a doctor. I'll post the results as soon as I know them.

Aug. 28, cycle #1 cd #7

Biggrin We got the results of my DH's semen specimen. WE HAVE SWIMMERS!! We have enough to potentially conceive this cycle! Dr. Thomas said that if I'm not pregnant in the next 6 months, he'll do a formal SA. He saw a lot of sperm that we swimming underneath the microscope. I am so happy! I am praising God because without Him nothing is possible! I can't wait to ttc this week! I am going to use my opk this friday and I hope it detects ovulation! Hopefully, I'll be posting a BFP at the end of this cycle!

I am drinking a mocha and trying to relax a little this morning. When DH got back from Cleveland yesterday evening, we sent the kids to bed and BD. It was so nice knowing that everything is the way it should be. I am not ovulating yet, at least I don't think so. It should happen this weekend. I am so ready for a BFP! Biggrin

Biggrin Well, I've been having a great morning so far! DH and I BD in the shower. It has been so much better since the reversal! I am going to be visiting with my parents later this morning because they came in town yesterday. They live in PA and we live in OH. It's an 8 hour drive between us. They are buying a condo very close to us, within 5 minutes. Needless to say, I'm not very happy about that! I want some space and I feel like they aren't giving me any! DH wants me to discuss this with them. I don't want to because I'm afraid they will get really angry but I know I need to.

I talked to my friend Melissa yesterday. We've been best friends since the 4th grade! She lives in PA too and I miss her so much. We used to go out once a week for coffee and to window shop and now we can't. It's been a difficult adjustment. She's ttc too. I really hope we can get pregnant at the same time because it would be great to share that experience with her.

I am so excited about ttc! I really hope it happens this month but I'm trying not to get too excited in case it doesn't. I checked my cervix yesterday and it was fairly soft but I still have sticky cm. I'm getting closer to O day though. It should happen sometime this weekend or early next week. I have to get DH in bed with me at least once a day until next Wednesday or so to cover our bases. Here's hoping it'll work this month and I won't have to be patient!

I am drinking a coffee and trying to relax for a few minutes before I take my kids to school. They are in 3rd and 4th grade. We spent some time with my parents yesterday. We went out to dinner at TGI Friday's which was nice for a change. I always have to cook so it was nice to take a break from that.

I am going to use my opk later this morning for the first time. I am hoping that it works. I'll post the results on here after I do it. I wanted to BD last night but DH was too tired. Hopefully, I can convince him to BD tonight! My cervix is soft and I have some wet cm. It's not egg white consistency yet but it's getting close. I haven't been charting because I have too much going on right now to worry about temping. I'm going to go now.

OPK results for Aug. 31

Well the results for the OPK were no LH surge yet. I did have a faint line in the test area but it says that the two lines need to be the same shade of purple. So I'll test again tomorrow and I'll BD tonight just to make sure I don't miss it.

Well, I just went to the bathroom (sorry if it's TMI) and I have creamy stretchy cm and I did another OPK stick and I still have a faint positive. I'm not sure if I should take this to mean I'll ovulate in the next 24-36 hours or not. I guess I'll BD from now until the beginning of next week just to be sure. I sure hope I'm ovulating now. Anyway, I have to start dinner.

Sept. 1, cycle #1, cd #11

Well today has been a good day so far. We BD in the shower again today and I think it might be really close to o day. I did another opk test stick and I got a more positive looking result. I think I will be ovulating in the next day or two. I have been having more creamy stretchy cm and I'm definitely wanting to BD more so these are good signs of ovulation.

I went out with my parents today to lunch and they are looking for some new lights to put in their condo. They want my DH to put them up for them tomorrow. The kids are staying over there tonight so DH and I get to BD like crazy!! I can't wait to have our free time together. It'll be a nice change. Maybe we can get some wine and watch a nice movie together. It'll be really nice to be able to spend some time alone.

I better get going. I have to work on laundry before my kids get home from school.

I did another opk test and it came up positive. I am having a lot of wet, stretchy cm so I know I am fertile now. I think that I may have ovulated or I am just about ready to. Either way, we BD yesterday evening so the swimmers from yesterday will stay in there looking for the egg until Tuesday evening. I want to get DH to BD with me tonight and tomorrow night just to make absolutely sure we didn't miss it. I am so excited about the whole process. I really hope this is the month for our BFP even though I know that it may not happen since it's only the first month.

We have been hanging out with family this weekend. It's been a relaxing weekend and that has been nice. My sister and her DH are probably coming over tonight for a visit. I'm not sure what we'll do for dinner but I guess we'll figure it out. I have to go so I can prepare for them to get here.

Cycle #1, cd #15

I'm now officaially in the 2ww. I am going to try very hard not to take a hpt test too early. I'm very impatient so I don't know if I can hold out or not. I will probably over analyze every symptom :? . I hope the 2ww is over soon!

My parents left yesterday to go back to PA. I was a little sad to see them go even though they are here a lot. Their condo is nice. My DH put up new lights throughout the condo on Sat. It was a big job and I helped him as much as I could. My dad took my son Gavin to the Ohio State football game. He really liked it! My daughter Linnea spent the day with my mom. It was nice to have some time without the kids. Today I need to buy our dog a new bed and I also need to buy some new sheets for my bed. I guess I better get going.

Today I have been feeling a little nauseous and I have been swallowing a lot of saliva. Does this sound like a symptom of pregnancy? Any advice is appreciated.

I have been feeling bloated and I am having some slight cramps. Does this seem too early for pg symptoms? I don't know whether to take these things seriously or not. I feel like I'm going crazy LOL! I wish there was a way to tell if you are pg before missing a period by taking a simple test. Oh well, I guess I have to be a little more patient.

I'm still feeling queasy at times. This morning I gagged after swallowing a few times. I'm very gassy too. I'm tired. My breasts have been tingling at times. I really hope this is because I'm pg. I really want to test but I don't want to test too early either. It's so hard to be patient! I hope the 2ww is over soon!

Yesterday I had quite a bit of tingling in my breasts and I went to bed super early and fell asleep right away. I went to bed at 9:30 and I usually don't go to bed until 11:00. I had very vivid and strange dreams too. I took an opk test yesterday and it came up positive. It was at least 72 hours after my LH surge for ovulation. I hope that's a sign of pg! What do you think? Can an opk be used as a hpt? I really want to take a hpt but I'm nervous about it being too early. I'll keep you posted if I decide to take one.

Yesterday, I had a little diarrhea. The strange thing was a didn't feel sick. Today, I am constipated. I have been having a lot of watery, creamy cm which I usually don't have. I had a little mild cramping today and a slight low backache. I really hope these are pg symptoms. I'll keep you posted.

BFN at 7 dpo

Well I took a hpt this morning and got a BFN Sad . I am very disappointed even though it's early to test. I thought I'd get a BFP since I've been having so many symptoms but I guess they are from PMS. I guess I'll wait for AF to show up.

I'm not out of the running yet!

Well, I have decided not to get depressed over the BFN yesterday. After all, it was at 7 dpo which is really early. This morning I felt sick to my stomach and I woke up this morning feeling as if I hadn't slept at all. I really hope these are pg symptoms and not PMS. My breasts are still tingling at times and they feel heavy. My cervix is low and is very soft. I had another bout of diarrhea yesterday. This morning I was constipated, crazy huh? I guess I'll retest on Friday to see if I get a BFP. I'm hoping and praying that I do!

PMS or pg symptoms. time will tell!

I was so irritable yesterday and very weepy too. I'm not sure why. I am still tired and still constipated. I have been feeling sick to my stomach in the morning now for almost a week. I don't know what is causing it. My stomach rumbles and feels empty every morning but I don't feel hungry until later in the day. I'm not craving chocolate which is kind of strange since I usually do before my period. I really hope and pray that AF doesn't show on Mon.

Sharp, shooting pain in breasts

Last night, I had some sharp shooting pains in my breasts. This is something totally different for me. Usually before AF, my breasts are really sore and they aren't this month. They have just been tingling and I have the sharp pains every once in a while. My stomach still rumbled this morning. I just don't know what to think! I'm going crazy trying to figure out what's going on with me :? .

I'm still very tired and gassy. My breasts have started to be very sore as of this morning. I really hope I start to feel back to normal soon. TTC is very exciting but also very nerve racking! I hope we all get our BFPs soon!

Brown spotting

Yesterday, I noticed a small amount of brown spotting on my panties when I went to the bathroom. After that small amount, I haven't had anymore. I really hope this is implantation spotting. Yesterday I was 11 dpo. AF is due Mon. and I hope she doesn't show. My breasts are still sore and tingling at times. I'm still very tired.

Good luck with your upcoming vr! My DH was in moderate pain for about a week and then began to feel much better. I hope you get your BFP soon.

AF hasn't shown up yet, she's due today. I have a feeling that she will be here because I took a hpt on Friday and got a BFN. I'll keep you posted.

AF is 1 day late

AF is late. She hasn't shown up yet and I am praying that she doesn't. I'm trying not to get my hopes up since it's only our first month ttc and also because I got a BFN earlier this cycle. I'm going to wait and see if she shows up today or tomorrow and then take a test. I'll keep you posted.

Still no AF!?!

AF is still not here. I'm confused and excited at the same time. I'm nervous about taking a hpt. I'm afraid I'll see a BFN like I did last Friday. My boobs are still really sore and I'm very tired. I hope this isn't PMS. I'm officially 2 days late now. I'm not going to test until the weekend if she's not here by then. Keep me in your thoughts!

Well AF arrived this morning. I guess it's on to the next cycle. We have to BD more this time to catch the egg. I'll be MIA for a few days since there's nothing going on. Talk to you soon.

Ordered Preseed

Well, I guess my MIA was overwith fast! I ordered preseed and I hope it does the trick this month. I figure it can't hurt and hopefully it will help the sperm get to where they need to be. I also bought the Answer opk again since it seemed to help pinpoint my O day last month.

My parents are in town for another OSU football game. My dad is crazy about them. We'll probably get together on Sun. before they go back to PA on Mon. They bought a condo here in Pickerington and they come here often to visit. It's nice in a way to have them close but at the same time it's a little too close for comfort.

Anyway, I'm going to get going now. Talk to you soon.

Well, I think AF is over! Yeah!! Now we get to BD like crazy and hopefully make our third baby! I'm really trying to relax about ttc and let things just happen. I do plan on using the preseed I ordered and I think I'm going to use the opk too. Other than that, nothing else. I want ttc to be fun not a chore. My DH already feels like I only want him so we can make a baby, which isn't true. I'm going to spice things up with some lingerie and show him that it's not all about baby making.

I'm working on housework today. I needed to catch up on laundry and I need to clean the bathrooms. I hate cleaning the bathrooms, LOL! It's so time consuming. Oh, well I need to get back to work. Talk to you soon.

Well, we BD yesterday night and this afternoon! Hopefully I can get him into bed again tonight. I'm much more relaxed about ttc this cycle. I figure we will just BD a lot and see what happens.

Today we went to the mall together to window shop. He asked me if I wanted to go into Baby Gap and look around. Well, needless to say I said yes! It was so nice looking at the baby clothes and dreaming of having our third child together. He saw a maternity clothing store and said that the clothes were cute and that I'd look really cute in them! I'm so happy that he's just as excited about having a third as I am.

Well, I better go. Talk to you soon.

Cycle #2, cd 7

Well, I'm being lazy this morning drinking a starbucks cafe mocha, decaf of course so I don't hurt our chances with ttc. I'm trying to get my act together and get some cleaning done. Sometimes being a stay at home mom is great but sometimes it can be lonely. I guess I should be thankful that my children aren't in day care and I get to spend every day with them.

We didn't BD again last night. We were both too tired. At least we've BD every day so far Biggrin . I'm really going to try to BD every day until a couple of days past O day just to be sure we don't miss the egg! Anyway, I better get going.

OPK positive

Well, I guess I'm going to ovulate early this month. I decided to take an opk test this morning even though I'm only on cd 7. I took an opk test and it was positive. I guess I know what we'll be doing tonight! And tomorrow night and the next night LOL! I guess you never know what's going to happen during your cycle. The BD we did on Mon. and yesterday hopefully helped. I'm excited about this cycle and I hope we catch the egg!

Well, we BD last night and it was so spontaneous! It was nice to know that we can still be spontaneous! I thought that might have gone out the window when the kids came along, KWIM? Anyway, I used preseed too and I really hope it helps me get the BFP!

Today is a yucky day. It's supposed to rain all day and it's cold. I was looking forward to fall but now I'm wondering why. I bought a nice new fall wreath for the front door and it looks really nice. I better get going, I've got to take the kids to school.

Well, I am happy this morning. We BD this morning and I think I'm ovulating so it's great. We BD on Fri. night too so I really hope we catch the egg this time. I got a blazing dark positive on my opk on Fri. morning so I guess that I have a good chance of conceiving with the BD we did on Fri and today.

We are going to go to the Halloween store to see what costumes they have. The kids are really excited about picking out their costumes. We also have some errands to run. I guess I'll write later about what we did today.

Yesterday the kids got their Halloween costumes. Linnea is going as a witch and Gavin is going as a ninja. They will look so cute on Halloween!

We BD twice yesterday. I think we might have caught the egg this cycle! I have a good feeling about it. I had ewcm yesterday which I don't think I had last cycle. I really hope I ovulated yesterday. I'm going to try very hard not to take a hpt until AF is late. I guess I'll see how much patience I have LOL!

Very faint BFP on dollar tree hpt?!?

I took a dollar tree hpt with fmu today and I saw a very faint line on the test as it was working. Within the 10 min. time limit, the test line got a tad bit darker. I sure hope this isn't an evap. line and is my early BFP! I'm only about 5-7 dpo right now. I'll keep you posted.

Another faint line on dollar tree test?!?

Well, I took another dollar tree test and got another faint line but it's more visible than the first one. I got some urine in the result area though so I'm not sure if this is accurate or not. The control line did come up though, so I guess it's accurate.

I also took a cvs hpt and I thought I saw a very faint line but I'm not sure if it's an evap. line or not. I think it appeared after the time limit. I don't know why I'm testing so early but I can't help myself!

Well, I have been spotting since yesterday off and on. It's brown and there is not very much of it. I don't know what to think. I thought maybe I was pg but I don't know now. If this is AF, it is very light. I guess I'll see if it becomes heavier and more red. If not, maybe I'll take another hpt to be sure. Anyway, I'll tell you what happens.

AF arrived yesterday. Well, I'm now on cycle #3 cd #2. I think I might have had a chemical pregnancy this last cycle since I got faint positives on two hpts. I don't think they were evap lines since they appeared within the time limit. I don't feel too bad about it though. At least I know we can get pregnant, which is great!

I am not going to use opks this month since I feel that they don't really help all that much. They just get me too obessed about ttc and I really want to relax and pray more. I know that it will happen in God's time so I might as well relax and let it happen.

My opk was positive yesterday and we BD 30 min. after I took the opk. I sure hope we caught the egg. Just in case I didn't ovulate yet, I'm going to put on some lingerie and try to entice DH into BD tonight. We've BD every day since last Thur. and I know he's getting pretty tired. Hopefully, the lingerie will help him agree to it.

Halloween is tomorrow and my kids are excited. I hope it doesn't rain. That would really put a damper on the night. Talk to you soon

Happy Halloween! My kids are so excited about trick or treating tonight. I really hope it doesn't rain. I bought both of them an umbrella in case it does.

We BD this morning. Dh didn't feel very good last night so I thought I'd try this morning and he said yes! I'm very happy about our BD timing. I think I'm about 1-2 dpo so I'm officially in the 2ww. Ugh, this is the worst part of the cycle. I sure hope I get my BFP at the end of the cycle!

I haven't posted in awhile. I forgot all about my journal. Since my last post, we had Thanksgiving and it was really nice. We had it at our house and my parents and my aunt and uncle came over. The turkey actually turned out ok which was a relief. I am finished with my Christmas shopping and I just have a few more things to wrap.

As for ttc, this is our 5th cycle but really our 4th since our timing was off the first time. I am using opks again this month and haven't had a surge yet. Last cycle, I got a faint positive on a frer and on an accu-clear and then AF showed. AF was a little late with 3 fairly large clots and a lot of cramps. I think I had a chemical but I'm not sure. The hpts were really faint so they could've been evaps. So far we've BD on cd 5, 6 and 7. I hope we catch the egg this cycle.
