My last post mentioned that my OPK's were getting dangerously close to positive, however, they never quite got there. I did have a big temp spike the day after, which made me think I just missed the surge. So I went on my merry way thinking that this month was just a rest and recovery month and next month we'll dive into the IVF protocol.
Weeeeelllll...I found out on Friday that one of my incision sites may have a slight bit of infection. It was getting a little red. I called the doctor and got on an antibiotic asap. I also had noticed that fertility friend had not confirmed my ovulation because my temp started dropping. I started wondering if the temp increase was because of the infection. Well, again on Saturday and Sunday I got what looked like positive OPK's on my internet cheapies. The only thing was, I never got a smiley on the digital. My temps really dipped and I was having some ovary pain, so we went for it.
Yep. 3 days shy of my 2 week "no sex" window, we did it. Don't be mad. I'm going to say those extra few days were just padding anyway. So we did again yesterday and again this morning after I woke up to this...
Please notice the crazy wonk-a-donk temps this month, but everything seems to be adding up to O yesterday vs. last week. We'll see if I continue to get high temps for the next few days.
I've been feeling great since the surgery, so I wasn't really concerned. I certainly wouldn't have gone for it last week only a week after surgery, which is why we didn't, but I couldn't help this close to my free and clear to give it one last shot at a free baby before we dive into IVF. Not to mention, T is typically a "well did your doctor approve that" or "does your doctor know your taking this" kind of guy. He was all for our rogue actions this weekend!
With the work traveling done for a while and no big plans here at home for a few weeks, it's been low-key.
I've spent a lot of time reading my IVF packet and familiarizing myself with the process and what's to come. I also spoke with someone from AttainIVF. Obviously we don't qualify for a refund program, but we do qualify for a multi-cycle program. We're crunching numbers and scenarios to see what makes sense and trying to make the best decision. Of course the more IVF's we do the better our chance. The good news is we can opt out if we discover that I'm a horrible responder. So we are considering going with the program. Hopefully we'll decide that for sure this week. If anyone has any opinion or experience with these programs, please, chime in.
I hope everyone is doing well and I'm super excited for all my IVF buddies. I can't believe I am lucky enough to be going through this at the same time as so many of my TTC friends!!
