Surgery went ok!

My dear darling DH's surgery went well today.  I sat with him for a while in recovery, and the surgeon came by and said everything went well, no surprises.  Good!  Phew!  He is so brave to undergo a surgery with painful recovery just to increase our chances!  :)  He is taking a week off work, and is on some Perco.cet now.  Thank you all for your positive energy! :)

Am still obsessed with progesterone today.   Even took a stroll through the Carrot dispensary looking for 'N.atural Prog.esterone Cre.am' - no luck.  It seems like I got a good tip at Fertility Yoga class last Friday about flaxseeds.  I've been adding them to my morning fertility shake ever since.  Maybe they will lengthen my luteal phase?  That would be excellent.  And maybe I should eat some yams?  Ahaha - love Dr Google!

I think I'm addicted to fertility shake.  Love it.  Here is my current recipe:
  • Almond milk
  • 1/2 or 1 bananna
  • 1/4 avocado 
  • Heaping tablespoons of:
    • Hemp Protein
    • Gre.ens+
    • Groud Flaxseed
    • Carob (since I limit caffeine - but cocoa tastes better.  I am used to carob now, it's not so bad)
Yum!  For a lark, I took my temp this morning - nice and high (it is CD24).  Boobs are still sore (TMI good thing about working from home is that I don't need to wear a bra!).  All good.  We'll see how tomorrow goes.  I am almost afraid not to have my shake in the morning....


  1. I'm totally the same way about my shakes!!!!

    I hope that your dh has a speedy recovery! I'm sure you'll be a great nurse!

  2. I'm glad DH is doing okay. Maybe he should be renamed to BDH for Brave Darling Husband. (although, BDH doesn't have the same ring to it...)

  3. I am not sure if you wrote about DH's surgery- but I was wondering if it was a varicocele repair? I am asking b/c my DH maybe be getting the surgery. Can you email me if it is...I would love to ask you questions. lebecroseAT(aol)
