Just Fine

I had my HSG today. They only do the test once a week, so every woman currently being evaluated for infertility in the clinic was right there with me in the clinic. We joked around a bit with some of the other couples there, and after marching us all over the hospital (it didn't seem like the new resident they had take us to Radiology really knew where it was) and a loooong wait they tood us back one by one to get the test.

It hurt. A lot. I won't get into the gory details, but when someone tries to dialate your cervix, it's nice to have them TELL YOU that's what they're doing.

Ow.

Anyway, the pain went away pretty quickly and then all there was to do was enjoy the show. I saw my uterus and fallopian tubes (perfectly fine and open, thank you very much!) and thoroughly enjoyed it when the radiologist yelled at the RE who was hurting me. WOO HOO for the Radiology department and BOOOOOO to the REs!

I'm at home resting now, and taking full advantage of my "invalid" status. Tomorrow I get to schedule my follow-up appointment, and I'm not quite sure where we'll go from there. We didn't see any abnormalaties today, which was the best possible outcome of the test, but we still don't have an expanation for why we're not pregnant yet or why I'm having some of these strange symptoms. I guess I'll just have to wait and see what they think I need to do.

I am so happy for you that they didn't find any abnormalities!! That should be a bit of a weight lifted off of your shoulders. My good vibes are being sent your way... and just an FYI my hubby and I have been trying to get pregnant for a year and 1/2... Don't lose hope!!!!
