I Am Waiting ...

And so is my wife, for the upcoming PERIOD! (sounds and whistles here to celebrate ... wait, celebrate? Not really ...) She said she "feels like she is going to start" ... we'll see about that sometime in the next several days.

I will be spending the week in Germany for training, so my poor wife will have to suffer the letdown in an empty house. I hate that she has to be alone during a difficult time ... we've been through it, oh, 26 times or so ... but the sting never quite goes away.

Good week to all of you ... will post an update when I learn of our next steps, which will probably include an appointment with our Doctor, and the scheduling of a laproscopy. Anybody know how many months a laproscopy will put us on the bench (i.e. not TTC?) And what is it like - does it hurt? My wife, needless to say, is not overly thrilled about going under the knife ...

I had a lap done in March, they found stage 3 Endometriosis. You will only be out 1 month from trying. I am still not pregnant, but still hopeful. Best wishes!

I had a laproscopy/hysteroscopy and it took me about 3 days to recover. The doctor told me I could do IVF the following month if I wanted to.

I have had 2 laps.

both times I was off work for a week and in pain for half that week.

We got pregnant the 2nd cycle after the 2nd lap.

I had medium endo too.

I'm interested in the laparoscopy information too, the wife is having one in November if we've not made progress by then.

Enjoy Germany, and good luck this cycle.
