And finally, she arrived!

>> Monday, February 6, 2012

Aunt Flow, the bitch, my period aka CD1 is finally here!!! And thank goodness. After a 50 day cycle and what felt like weeks worth of PMS, I was going to need new jeans and a new husband if it went on any longer:)

I just finished scheduling my HSG test, so we're all set for 12:30PM next Monday, the 13th. Dr. S. will be doing the procedure, which I'm actually really excited about. While I trust that his new partner is great, I want to take the opportunity to talk with him about our treatment plan. As of right now, I have no clue what they'll recommend for us. Dr. A. and her nurse have just said that they'll know more once we complete the HSG test and confirm my tubes are all clear.

So, here's to the next step! And please, feel free to leave a comment or shoot me an email if you have any experience with this test:)

Prayers for good news and not too long of a journey for a sibling for Jackson!

Hey girl. I'm so sorry I never seem to comment anymore. I promise you I'm still here.
First of all I could not be more like you if I tried. I have the same issues you do and yes I have had the HSG test.
It stung a little, nothing too terrible. It really felt like a stinging type crampy feeling. Like a really bad period. It wasn't in any way comfortable. But its not unbearable. Go into it knowing you will sort of want to lift your butt off the table for a couple of minutes and its going to sting. Other than that I promise you should be just fine.
It was a really fairly quick test for me. They explained what they were doing and they had the results back semi quickly.
If you have any questions or things you need to ask or discuss please feel free to email me I would be happy to offer up any info on my experience.

I too have had that test done. They did it for me when we were trying for Charlotte. I found the hardest part of the test was just how emotionally draining it all was. It didn't help that the doctor who administered mine was an insensitive a#$, but I cried when it was done. Relief, exhaustion, just all around stress from the infertility journey.

I am curious as to why they are having you do this test when you clearly have gotten pregnant in the past. Dr. S let me skip this test for Robert since it was clear my tubes were open. He did say that scar tissue could have built up between pregnancies, but was unlikely given my history. Wait, I think I remember you have PCOS....maybe that is why??

Anyway, sorry for the personal question! :)

Like Meant to be a mom said, it is uncomfortable, but not bad. For mine they blew air bubbles in me (not die) and it caused pain in my shoulder for a few hours after - but other than that it was ok. Like most things woman have to go through, it was not fun, a man would NEVER do it, but it wasn't the worst thing I have ever had done to me! ;-)

Good luck, and I will be praying for you! And tell Dr. S hello for me!

Hey, Momma Wilson! Just wanted to let you know that the HSG is pretty cook, if you're able to watch the dye when it's doing its job. I had heard that I'd have some of the worst cramps with the HSG and thought I had been lucky, but 30 minutes later, they hit. I grabbed a milkshake on the way home to treat myself to the yuck of the day. Before they'd do the HSG, I had to do bloodwork to make sure I wasn't pregnant, oh the irony.

I'll be praying for you with your procedure and will continue praying for Jackson to be a big brother.
