Back to work

Yesterday was my first day back at work, and what a day it was. I got in at 10 a.m. and was promptly told by several people that I looked terrible. I thanked them for their kindness and plopped down at my desk for about 3.5 hours before my ex-boss sent me home (my new boss is on vacation). That was actually a godsend because I FELT terrible. On hubs's orders I laid down as soon as I got home and stayed away from the computer all night. I even took a nap, and I am not a good napper. When hubs got home he insisted I stay put until bed time, at which point I popped 2 benadryl to make sure I slept like the dead, and I did!

Today I'm tired, a little sore and a lot swollen, but feeling MUCH better than I was yesterday (I even had to take a percocet last night which I hadn't done since Sunday). I came in at 10 again today, but maybe this time I'll make it to the end of the day!

There's not really much to talk about right now... I am SUPER behind on Christmas shopping, but I think that's par for the course. I'll probably try to head out to Tar.get tonight so I can get something for the gift exchange we're doing at work on Friday, and the book exchange some friends and I are doing tomorrow night. Then I can finish all the other shopping this weekend. Ugh... whose idea was it to schedule my lap a few weeks before Christmas again? Oh right... mine. A friend of mine is getting hers done tomorrow, I feel really sorry for her.

Oh question - I got my lap done on CD 15 and bled a little lighter than a period for about 6 days. Do you think I'll still bleed heavily when AF arrives next week? Just curious how wretched I'm going to feel on Christmas :P At least maybe my cramps might not be as bad as usual, huh?

Back to work I go. Happy Hump Day!

I'm sorry you felt so bad...glad they noticed and sent you home, though. You definitely need your recoup time after surgery.

My first period after the lap was extremely heavy and had lots of clots. I had my lap on CD1, though. Maybe this will push back your period?

I remember that swollen belly after the lap. Ugg. My period after my lap was heavy. It is hard to day if yours will be.

Glad you are starting to feel better and get back in the swing of things.

glad you got a bit more rest yesterday. I think I am going to start temping and charting so I get a handle on where I am at in my cycle. My doc said she poked at my ovaries and to expect spot to be here for a little while.


And I, too, am behind on the Xmas shopping. Darn it!

I'm glad you got sent home from work and you rested the rest of the evening! Sorry you have to finish up your shopping, but take it easy and don't push yourself! Hope you are feeling better soon! (((HUGS)))

I think I had my lap around CD 13 and my AF came as normal around CD 28 and it was heavy.

AF after my laps was always really light b/c the RE did a D&C of the uterine tissue so there wasn't much to bleed. (((HUGS))) Feel better soon girl!
