I’m 2dpo today! 😀 It was a pretty painful ovulation with all those follicles, but I’m feeling less soreness and bloating today. No pain, no gain! I am still feeling pretty psyched about this cycle! I’m very thankful to have a good chance!
I had a terrible stomach flu that started late Monday morning. I began throwing up at work, but I didn’t want to leave and be far from a bathroom! I stayed for a couple hours, but I finally just had to leave because I was getting worse and worse. I had to stop on the side of the road along the way home – and BARELY made it. People were walking by staring at my while I hung my head outside my car door. I did not even care. It seriously sucked though.
I vomited profusely for 8 hours straight! I finally stopped getting sick late Monday evening, but then I started with a terrible fever and body aches! I moaned and cried (seriously cried LOL), and tossed and turned all night. I almost went to the hospital. It was kind of scary. I still managed to go to work the rest of this week though. I pretty much had to. **Oh, and the missing temp you saw on my chart is due to fever.**
I’m feeling better, but my stomach is still SO sensitive. I tried solid food Wednesday night, but my stomach rejected it Thursday morning. 😦 I’m taking it slowly with adding food back, but I’m still mostly eating soup and crackers & drinking tons of fluids.
All in all, it was a yucky week physically! Ovulation with so many follicles – while sick with the stomach flu – is not very fun. We still managed to BD a lot though!! It was so funny on Monday – I basically told Andy to just “do it to me”. LOL! I mean, I was trying to get into it, but I was practically on death’s door. We could NOT waste any chance with this cycle. I hope my sickness didn’t screw anything up. My RE did labs on Tuesday and said everything was “okay”. I almost thought I had OHSS at first, but I didn’t – thankfully.
I cannot believe it has been just over a year since my Lap (11/22/11)! I have to say that it was well worth it. I never imagined they would discover so much and be able to repair it. I can’t really say it has helped with my fertility – but that’s mostly due to my other issues. The Lap definitely helped us find a couple BIG pieces to the puzzle though!
My belly button looks okay. I hope you don’t mind seeing it. 😉 There is a hole at the top where my belly button ring used to be, and then there’s a line going straight down through my belly button. It almost looks like there are 2 lines at the bottom, but that’s just the way my skin wrinkles around my line coming out of the bottom. There’s really only 1 line. There’s also a verrrry faint scar by my pubic bone, but it’s not worth taking a picture of.
My AFs are better now. I never had really bad AFs prior to the Lap anyway. I think I recall having pretty bad ones in my younger years, before I went on the Depo shot for birth control. After the surgery, my AFs were worse for maybe 6 months! I always took that as a sign that things were healing and doing what they were supposed to be doing. AFs can be funky anyway when you’re on fertility treatments, so it’s hard to say what mine would actually be like if I was more of a “normal” person. LOL. But anyway, Lap = great idea, even if to rule things out.
TGIF peeps!! 😀 Have a blessed day & weekend!
