Today was my HSG. Can I just tell you how worked up I got about this stupid 15 min. test? I was pretty sure I was going to collapse before my RE even got there. Of course, the main concern was my tubes. I was so scared that my right one would be blocked with scar tissue. It didn't help that after he began filling my uterus (without being able to see my tubes) he actually said, "I'm a little worried." He told me that my uterus was "pretty distended" with dye, so we were just going to calmly sit there and wait for a few minutes. I thought I'd vomit right then. The whole thing had been rather painless, but then right in the middle of a question I thought I felt a slight cramp so the tech took another picture. PHEW! The dye had finally spilled into both, that's right... BOTH tubes. Both of them looked beautiful. No blockages, and no sign of scar tissue. My RE gave me the green light to stop the birth control (YESSSS!!!!) even though I'm only about mid way through my second pack, and told me that if I wanted to, we could proceed with another IUI in as soon as 2 weeks. Yes, you read that right, TWO WEEKS! I am soooo freaking excited! Limbo has officially ended! (Can I get a hallelujah??)
Directly following my HSG, I met with my new counselor, Dr. C. She specializes in infertility, and was a wonderful breath of fresh air. Because my HSG ran long (I had NO IDEA I am allergic to iodine, but I'm keenly aware now!) I was only able to spend 1/2 hour with her. She pegged me pretty quick. Insomniac? Why, yes! Complulsive worrier? How did you know? Very goal oriented? I prefer the term "control freak." And these were just the tip of the proverbial iceberg. I think we will get along famously.
Today was a good day.
