I finally got my crosshairs today, so that means I'm 3 DPO! I'm a little concerned that my post-O temps have been a slow rise and not a spike. I guess we'll just see what happens over the next few days.


Look what I got this morning. Yep, its a + opk!! I will O probably tomorrow (O usually happens 12-36 hours after a + opk). We are trying to gender sway for a girl, so we won't be BD'ing anymore for a few days, until O has been confirmed.


Today, I had a TR post op appointment with Dr K. Right after surgery he said my tube lengths were 3.5 and 4.5 cm, but today he said they were both 5 cm. Not sure why the change (I was actually fully awake when he said that after surgery so I don't think I misunderstood him), but I'm happy since the longer the tubes the better! He then reviewed the protocol on what will happen when I get pregnant. I'll have to go get betas drawn every 48 hours and then have an US to confirm placement once my numbers reach 1500. This is to catch an ectopic (10% chance of happening) as early as possible, so as to avoid any major complications such as needing my tube taken out or worse, my death. Once a pregnancy has been confirmed in my uterus, then I will be released to my OB/GYN for routine pregnancy care.

I'm on CD 12 today, so I should O in a few days.

Fingers crossed this will be the only TTC cycle I need!!

Two weeks....

since my surgery and I feel great! Its amazing how many more of my PTLS symptoms have gone away (Yay!!) since the TR. My incision has healed up nicely and while in the recovery room, Dr K said we could start ttc as soon as I felt up to it. Today is only CD 7 so I still have another week or so before ovulation.

I am SO glad we decided to go through with the TR (and even more excited that it ended up being cheaper than we were originally quoted.) I'm relieved that the huge weight that I've been carrying around for 2.5 years (yes, I have regretted the TL pretty much since the day I got it done) has finally been lifted off of my shoulders. A huge part of that probably has to do with my Catholic upbringing.

I got a Carter's catalog in the mail the other many cute clothes that I would just love to buy. Even the boy clothes have gotten so much better since the last time I've had to buy baby clothes. I even refrained myself from buying a gender neutral ensemble. Can't say that might not happen once I get a BFP though. :-)
