post op :)

Today was my post op appointment with Dr S, and my new broadband card came just in time to blog about it :)
First I have to say thank you to everyone that said a prayer for me (us) during my surgery and recovery period.
I feel really good...I'd say I'm about 98% back to normal. Other than a little tenderness around my belly button - I feel great.
On to how my appointment went with Dr S today. I'd say it went well. First of all, I have to tell you all this. Since about 25 weeks pregnant with Lilly, every time I've been to the doctor - my blood pressure has been high. Clif says it's "white coat syndrome", but sometimes I wonder.
For example, last Monday at my post op appointment, my blood pressure was 138/93 (it was actually higher than that the first time they took it). It was equally high the morning of surgery.
This morning I was really nervous about my appointment. Nervous about what Dr S might have to say, and nervous about the potential cost of the shots that he had suggested. I just *knew* my bp would be high when we arrived. It was 126/88. How awesome is that?? I mean...for the first time in over a year, it was normal! :)
First, I met with my nurse - and then Dr S came in to examine my incisions. He said that everything looks really well, and that I can resume normal activities ;) Including baby making.
We then met with him and a resident that assisted with my surgery to discuss our options. Dr S told us that he had two suggestions. One being trying Clomid again, and two being the shots that we had discussed a few months back. I told him that we would like to try Clomid one more month before going with the shots. That will at least give us some time to start saving for the shots, if need be.
Clif and I both have really good feelings about this surgery. Of course, we don't want to get our hopes up... but it's hard not to at least be hopeful. Please join us in praying that the surgery will be a success and that we will be able to conceive without having to go the shot route.
I am really praying that due to the surgery, that AF will start without the provera. That's what happened the month before I got pregnant with Lilly. We (Clif & me) want a baby more than anything in this world... and we are anxiously awaiting what God has in store for us.
Thank you in advance for everyone who says a prayer for us, and the future of our family.
ps - it's good to be back! :)
