Is it working already?

It's been over a week since the surgery and things are going well for the most part.  I am back to work now and have been able to survive a full day of work and class without passing out so I think that is progress!!  I do, however, have an infection in 3 of my incision sites so I am now taking antibiotics to try to get rid of that.  I have been keeping the sites clean but I think I got the infections because I sweat at night.  I know, it's gross, but it's the hormones... I can't help it!! 
I saw Dr. S yesterday about the infections and he was so excited to hear that my cycle has begun, by itself, so soon after surgery.  I don't know if this is just a fluke or if it means that the procedure has done what it was supposed to do already.  In 3 weeks I will be getting some blood work done to check my progesterone levels which will tell us whether or not I ovulated this cycle.  Skeet's out of town for a couple of weeks so I am hoping that if I do... it doesn't happen until he gets back!!  I know it will probably take a couple of months before my egg quality starts to go up so I am not going to expect anything major to happen for a while.  I will start tracking my cycles better now to see if they are coming on time every month.  I don't want to get my hopes up too much but I keep thinking that it's about time for Skeet and I to get a break.  I'll keep you all posted!!

So glad to hear that things went well and that you are back on your feet. We will continue to pray that this procedure might be the step that gets you another sweet baby. We love you!

I hope you get feeling better soon! Take it easy! I'm excited to see what this will do with your PCOS and fertility. I think it's so neat that you found this procedure, and found an open-minded doctor to perform it! I'm excited to see how the next couple of months go!
