Okay let me start out by saying my name is Danielle and I am 30 my DH is 25. We have been married for 5 years and together for 7. I have two wonderful DS 11&7 from a previous marriage. My DH has none. I had my tubes tied in 1997 after my 2nd DS was born. I was in a bad marraige and I thought that was the right thing to do. Well when my little one was 6 months old I got divorced from my ex. I never thought I would ever get married again let alone want another child. Then I met my DH. He is the most wonderful man I have ever met. He is also the most wonderful step-dad. My DH knew I had a tubal, but he loved me how I was. He accepted it. About 2 years ago I found out info on-line about reversals, but they were expensive. ($6200). We saved the money and I had my operation on March 14th. I was so nervous wondering if I would even have enough tube left to do anything. I came out of the surgery to find out my Rt side was 4cm and the left was 3cm. I was devestated! But my doctor reassured me that with at least 4cm, there was a good possibility. But it would take longer. After 4 months of nothing I wanted to be reassured that the surgery worked and that the tubes were working like they were supposed to so I scheduled an HSG. I was scared, but the HSG showed the were attached and working %100. I was so happy. I also had an ultrasound that showed my ovaries and uterus were all in good shape and working. So the last 6 cycles have been tough! Every month when AF shows I get so discouraged. I want so badly to give my DH his child. I WAS doing OPK's, temping, preseed, & SMEP. I am going to try to temp this month and we are trying Damania (sp) and progesterone. I was told that sometimes with short tubes you may need extra prgesterone for implanting purposes. I guess we'll see. Today is CD7 of a 25-27 day cycle. I usually O around cd12. My normal LP has been 13 days. This month has been weird because I had a shorter AF and then on CD5 I had EWCM and CD6 sticky and then today I had (TMI) really long stretchy EWCM. I almost feel like I am going to ovulate. Does that seem early?? Oh well we BD on CD5 and we are BDing tonite. We are going to do everyother night. (my doctor told me my DH and I BD too much) Do you beleive that? So that is why we are doing every other. If I am not preggo this cycle my husband said he will go and get tested. I just get too stressed out sometimes. I want this too badly. Oh well that is why I am starting this journal so that I can get all this frustration out, and not put it all on my DH. Well I wrote a book today so we'll see what happen over the weekend.
