The Baby Process




Going to the fertility clinic is an amazing thing. I didn't know how little I actually knew about reproduction. There's day 1 of the cycle, and day 3 of the cycle. They all do something different. I have, so for had 4 ultrasounds and 3 outpatient test. I had a hystersalpinogram. That test was horrible. They shoot radiated dye up into the uterus. Wow, I almost passed out.




Tomorrow, I am having a hysteroscopy polypectomy done. I have 3 tiny polyps and Dr. Miller says these can be like IUD's and stop implantation. My procedure will be done in outpatient surgery. So I will be put under for it. It's at 4pm tomorrow. Say a prayer. Not sure what the next step is after that, but will keep ya'll posted.

I hope the pain is minimal and the procedure is successful. I can't imagine the mental fortitude it takes to go through this process...feel free to write offline if you need someone to whine to.

I'm glad the HSG test went well, and yes...it hurts! I remember going through that several years ago. Hoping all goes well for you in the coming days.

I pray it all goes well and that you'll have complete peace.

I hope your fertility treatments will all go smoothly. I see where you said you were 43. I had my last baby at 38 - my ob-gyn was 44 and pregnant with her fourth when I delivered. Praying all goes well for you.
