CD 1...Cycle 27

Yesterday was CD 1, after a tiny bit of pink on Sunday night.  I had a 27 day cycle, with ovulation on CD 16, but only a 11 day LP.  I'm hope that PPVI will call soon after the first of the year with the plan for probable antibiotics,  possible hydrocort (I haven't heard anything about my cortisol level...Misfit, it was just a 9am blood draw), and any other possible treatment for my uterine inflammation.  I just want to have everything in place (and hopefully at therapeutic levels) by the time my cycle after surgery starts.

My bbs hurt something serious.  I've only had pain in them for the past three or four cycles.  My incisions from surgery are doing fine.  I'm still waiting for the redness and crustiness from the allergic reaction around my belly button incision to fully heal, but the actual incision looks pretty good.

We may use days of fertility depending on how we feel, but I don't see full on Trying until after my surgery.

We had a good Christmas.  My brother and I made a whole lot of food for just 3 people, but it was really good and I have had to cook since we have so many leftovers.  I got an ice cream maker attachment for my stand blender and a mini food processor (so I don't have use and clean my big one for small amounts), and both sets of parents sent some money (which will be a big help with the whole second out-of-town surgery in three months thing).  We are going to our hometown for New Year's, which will be fun.


  1. glad all is well. sounds like you had a nice christmas! do you call into the ppvi on cd 1 for cycle review like i do? I started on saturday and called them monday. they were pretty busy. i got the call back for the review, but didn't hear about the results of the review until tues am.

  2. I'm not doing cycle reviews yet since we aren't really doing anything treatment-wise (other than T3). I'll probably be starting after my surgery in March.

  3. I can't help but be so so very hopeful for you that in the next coming months after surgery. But the truth of the matter is that God can choose to act at any point, so I will keep you in prayer!
    We did have a great time on our trip, thanks for asking!

  4. Counting down with you to a successful surgery. I know the days must be crawling by, but March will soon be here.

  5. I am glad to hear that the incision is healing nicely. I am right there with you with the short LPs - 12. I have only had one 13 in the last year I think. I am glad you had a nice Christmas. God Bless!

  6. Hmmm, as I look back at my charts after my first surgery they show a similar pattern. My Napro doc still had me on Clomid and HCG before my first surgery (just in case, which seems like such a joke now since I had such messed up insides!). My first cycle post-first surgery was only 25 days long with a 9 day luteal phase!

    Now that I'm on progesterone support my luteal phase went up to 13 days! I can't wait to see what it is with HCG (that is, if I ovulate this cycle!).

    I'm praying for you Mrs. Blondies. This wait until surgery is the worst. I found that it was one of the darkest times in my IF journey thus far. Just knowing that I had this BIG procedure coming up kept me worrying incessantly. Just remember, you're not alone.
