Ok, so I learned a little fun fact about having lap surgery done. To my surprise and horror, there is a bowel prep for this! UGH. I had one for the colonoscopy and it was completely awful. I had to try so hard to keep myself from throwing up after drinking all that nasty stuff. And then the results of drinking all that nasty stuff? Even worse.
I was psyching myself up for this surgery, telling myself that I can get through it and it wont be so bad. I can deal with the discomfort afterwards, too. But this bowel prep news has me slightly freaking out. I just know Im going to be so nervous as it is the day of, and I definitely dont need the extra factor of wondering if I'm going to crap myself. Sorry, I know, TMI. But that's where my head's at.
I know it'll be fine and I'll get through it. But geez. And I know this sounds silly but it's going to be hard not to have ANYTHING to drink for hours before the surgery. I'm always thirsty. And knowing that I can't drink anything, is going to make me want something to drink even more. Im weird. I have to have access to water like 24hrs a day. :)
Really, I'm just venting. I know it will all be fine.
Maybe I'll just wear one of those CamelBack water things for like a week straight before the surgery. And the morning of, I'll strap on a diaper. There. Problem solved. :)
Today is CD 6 of this "not really doing anything" cycle. Might start OPKs tomorrow. Might not.I know you're supposed to start on CD 1, but I know I ovulate so late in the cycle that I'm not worried about missin anything. Does anyone know how soon you can do an IUI or IVF after lap surgery? I've been hearing different things. Some people say you have to wait 2 cycles and some people say you can start right away...
Hoping I can start right away, which would put us into July for some baby makin.
Feels like years away...
