We are back from our long trip away and things are going fine. Our new house is moving along nicely and our visit to the specialist for my DS went great. They gave us an excellent prognosis, so that has made us really happy.
While we were away, I tried really hard not to think about TTC at all. I did continue temp -- but only because I thought my Dr would want to do more blood work after O, so I would need to know when that was. It is a good thing I did, b/c my cycle has been a little wacky this month, and my O was at least a few days early (like CD 13 or 14 instead of 16 or 17 like it usually is). So that is good. Our timing with BD was also good --we did every other day on the advice of my midwife, even though DH's SA was so stellar. I wont even get into detail about the awful pull-out couch at the hotel in Nashville! Not fun, but we did it!
So this morning I met with the doctor and had a vag ultrasound (that will wake you up, for sure!). Everything looked great. I don;t have PCOS, so that is good. The lining of my uterus is very good, and I have several healthy follicles. He could tell that I had ovulated, so that's positive, too. We discussed the blood work that I had done before I left (FSH 9.9; LH 9.3; Thyroid 3.4) and he seemed only marginally concerned. He said they were both high, but not quite high enough to rule anything out. They took some blood to check my progesterone, so I should get the results back tomorrow or wednesday. Can you beleive i *forgot* to ask them to check HCG?? I called back later and asked -- they said they would see what they could do -- the nurse wasn't sure if it could be checked out of the same vial. If my progesterone is low, then next month, I'll take some starting after O. And I can schedule the HSG for next cycle day 10 if i want to. Do I want to? Any thoughts? He did seem to think that if i had any scarring from my c-section that it would show up on the HSG, so maybe I do want to do it....
I have to go pick up my DS from preschool now, so I don't have time to check in on anyone else, but I will check back in during his nap. I have been thinking about you all lots. I did notice that my old group has completely vanished! I don't want to start griping or anything, but I am saddened at what has happened here. Where is everyone? I do see a core group who have valiantly plugged away (bless you girls!). I realize I haven't been around either, but I hope we haven't lost the bulk of our group due to frustration with the new format. That would make me so sad. For those of you that have been posting regularly, have you found that you have finally gotten used to the new board? Any recommendations? I heard that they were going to install an Outline View for each folder -- I think that would help a lot, don't you?
I have missed you guys. Hope you all are well.
Oh yeah, my chart -- http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/1f182/ -- it is weird (low temps, but I am temping 1 hour earlier than my other cycles -- and 2 hours earlier than the pg chart at the bottom of my home page, so that explains a little of it) and not like my other ones. I am hoping this is just a weird cycle and when I redo my CD3 bloodwork next cycle the numbers will be nice and low. Oh, and BTW, the DR said it was too early to see if I was pg from the ultrasound this morning -- i did remember to ask about that, wink wink.
