Maybe some good news

So, I had my 3 week post-op appointment with Dr. Haas today. I expected the same ol' thing as usual: "Well, you still haven't started behaving as a female should, so we're moving on to ____"). However, I did have a tiny bit of hope going into the appointment today because my temp chart had a decent temp increase over the past 5 days (aka: a good sign- I won't bore you with details).

So he was excited about that, and decided to do an ultrasound to check for ovulation. He thinks I have a corpeus luteum (egg remnant) on my right ovary which means I probably ovulated on my own about 6 days ago!!! He checked my progesterone level today so I'll find out about it tomorrow. I want it to be at least 10, so we'll see. The only other time I ovulated it was only 4, so that's a poor ovulation. Let's hope for much better...

Game plan from here: We see what the test says tomorrow but if I did indeed ovulate, we wait for my period to start on its own. Or for a positive pregnancy test, but it's not likely this month since I had three healing incisions on my belly and a kickin' uterine infection. That is NOT the recipe for romance... But it would be a great sign for the future, although nothing is for certain still. Plenty of girls have regular cycles after surgery but still don't get pregnant. So, I'm hopeful, but still a little guarded about it.

I'll let you know my results tomorrow when I get them!


  1. We're hoping and praying for ya, Amber!

  2. I'll be praying for you!!
