Bloody Hell...what a week!

I don't even know where to start with this post.

Lets start where my last post ended. You know, the one where I thought yet for the second time this cycle that I had ovulated. Whelp. I didn't. Since on Tuesday my temp then spiked to 101.25. I was having severe pain in my feet (weird, right) and achy. I actually went to the ER because I never get fevers that high and was concerned that I had an infection from the surgery. So a couple hours in the ER had them convinced I had a virus, myalgia and a UTI (one that I had no symptoms for). I kept asking them to look at the rash on my feet and they pretty much ignored me.

By Tuesday night my hands and feet looked like Mickey Mouse's big white hands and floppy feet. The PAIN was awful. They felt like they were going to explode. By Wednesday morning I had to have hubs take me to my primary doctor because I wanted someone to just look at my feet and tell me what was going on!

Allergic reaction is what was going on. To the Cipro that I started last Friday for my red incision spot from the laporoscopy. So I spent the last 2 days with pudgy fingers and toes on prednisone and benadryl. FUN!

To top it off, I wondered on Wednesday if Monday's spike was a true spike or if it was the start of my high fever...confirmed with a smiley. So in all my puffy glory, I had to somehow romance my husband into wanting to have sex with me after I told him we were done!! His response was priceless, but what about your hands and feet?!!?!? I was like, "Babe, we don't need them for what we need to do!!"

So again, we did the same baby dancing schedule as last weekend and gave it our best shot, though I'm not sure how in the hell that this cycle could bring anything resulting in a BFP. I would literally fall in the floor from disbelief if that happened. Ovulation officially happened yesterday on CD 21. Pretty late in the game I'm thinking.

I finally made it back into work today after my little couch vacation. Still puffy, but not nearly as bad. I can see my wrinkles in my hands again, so that has to mean it's going down, though sadly I can't wear my wedding rings and I'm stuck wearing Uggs until my shoes fit again.

Seriously, who could make this shit up!??!

So. Game on. 2 week wait, take 3.

Update: Might I add that my temp dropped...again today, so this cycle seems to be a complete bust


  1. Oh no. You poor thing! I'm so sorry that happened. Your hubby is a champ. Mine always gets perturbed if I tell him we are done and then say "just kidding". Hope this 2WW flies by and you end up with a BFP!

  2. What a heck of a week! I am so sorry you had to go through all of that, it sounds completely horrible! At least you were able to find out what the heck it was and covered all of your bases on the bd front. A bfp would be such a great surprise, especially if you think the cycle is a bust :) Hoping this is it for you!

  3. Seriously!? I think you definitely deserve a BFP out of that one. You guys are troopers are making all the BD'ing happen amidst those circumstances. I hope this weekend makes all the difference in the world and that you're feeling better for a fresh new week WITHOUT complications!

  4. Oh Suzanne, I am so incredibly sorry. I just wanna give you a big hug. What the absolute fuck??? I wanna have a talking to with your lady parts, I mean for real! I have seen the "weird" circumstances turn into BFPs though, so I am still praying for you. I am so sorry for all you've gone through and dealt with and I hope the swelling and pain is gone right now.
