A Possible Move

When I was 25, I got married and came to this country with my husband, and it feels like home in so many ways. Thanks to our Catholic Faith! We have been blessed in many ways.
Four and half years later,  God is preparing us for a big move. The only question that remains unanswered is "Where"? Yes, it all depends on my husband's job. It can be to either Canada or India. And a very, very, very slight possibility that we will continue here for a few more months if God wills. I cannot even imagine how we are going to dispose everything and make a big move but I know God will take care of everything.

My sister is getting married the beginning of 2013. We were planning for our Vacation to India around Christmas. We were so excited and ready to book our tickets but this uncertainty about the relocation has put us on a hold. Yes, it is an uncertain period and we have stepped up our prayers. We are praying to St. Jude and St. Frances Xavier Cabrini (Patron Saint of Immigrants). We will go wherever God is leading us.
As I type this, I have tears in my eyes. I am so so grateful that God brought us here and gave us an opportunity to meet life-affirming NaPro doctors. And again it wouldn't have been possible if I hadn't found all your blogs! Thank you all from the bottom of our hearts.

And please pray for us that this stressful period will be over & that the path will become clear and that we can attend my sister's wedding.

Bleeding after Lap *Updated*

Ladies, I have a question.

It's been more than 2 weeks since my laparoscopy. I had my surgery on CD 11. The first few days after surgery, I had very light bleeding more like spotting. It then changed to a full fledged period on CD 16 with heavy bleeding and clots. What??? I have never had a 15 day cycle in my life!!! The bleeding tapered off last weekend and I thought it was all over. And we resumed (I) as there was no red. Unfortunately, the spotting/light bleeding returned after 2 days.

I am tired of seeing red each time I use the restroom. I thought I would ask you folks before I call PPVI and play the waiting game. I was thinking that a new cycle had begun last week but now I am confused..

Thank You so much for your comments!

I called PPVI and the nurse told me that some people go on to have light bleeding for "several days" after the lap. They told me to get back to them if the spotting changes to heavy bleeding. I haven't seen any spotting today. I hope it stays that way!
And yeah, the biopsy/culture could have disrupted the uterine lining causing irregular bleeding. And they also cauterized my cervix and maybe the Intercourse could have caused the spotting.
