Wonderful Wednesday!

Today is one of the best days I have had in a LONG time (at least so far at 11:30 am!)! Here is a few reasons why:





No, this isn't me, but this is what I had done this morning. I went to my OB's office for a procedure under ultrasound that would show if I had any anatomical problems with my uterus, tubes, or ovaries. It was very uncomfortable, well, ok, it just flat out hurts, and still does two and a half hours later! The OB dilates your cervix and inserts a catheter to fill your uterus and tubes with saline. After it is injected, he watches the screen to see the flow of the saline. My uterus looked perfect, tubes are wide open to let a little egg travel, and my ovaries looked great! So, what's next you may ask? After a pretty lenghty conversation, it was decided to draw a few more labs and wait for those to come back in two to three weeks. If those are normal, I am back into the swing of things. If not, we fix the problem and then start again! So regardless, I should be back to babymaking by May if not April!!!! We are going to do a few new things when the time does come that we are pregnant again. I am to start taking progesterone the day I get a positive pregnancy test and call his office immediately. We will get beta HCGs and ultrasounds from 4 weeks on. He has promised me he will do everything in his power to keep me from having another miscarriage. That is all I need to hear!

Thank you all for praying for my OB decision back in October. It was such a hard thing to do, as I really did LOVE my old OB, but she didn't specialize in infertility and her staff just wasn't the right fit for me. This OB is FABULOUS and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE his nurses. So, thank you God for putting me in the right place at the right time to get encouraged to see him. He has made all the difference in the world in my attitude right now!

The next thing is too cool! Last night I had a comment from a girl that is not only moving to my area, but DOWN THE STREET!!!!! How exciting is that?! The funniest part of the story is that she found me through Kelly's blog. It just makes me laugh that neighbors found each other through a blog of a girl ten hours away! Ha! Brittney, if you read this, email me, I tried to email you, but I don't think it went through. I want to get to know you better! I promise I am not a weird stalker! :-)


In a couple of hours after I start to feel better (they said I should feel better in a few hours), I am going to run to my house to look at our light fixtures and cabinets, which should all be there by afternoon!!!! PTL, we are still ahead of schedule!!!!! I'll post some pictures when they are all installed. I'll also bring my better camera today and try to get some better paint pictures.

I hope that you get all the answers that you need so that you can get back to "business!!" I cannot wait for the day that you call to tell me that you have your positive pregnancy test. I am still praying for you and Michael.

I had that same procedure done and it was soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo painful. BUT it helps some people get pg just by having it done!
I took progesterine the entire first trimester and i'm convinced it kept me from m/c. So I think everything you shared is GREAT news!
And funny about your new neighbor!!!

Lauren Kelly said...

HOW AWESOME!!!!! I'm sorry to hear the procedure was painful but looks like everything is going to be worth it in the end! I'm sooooo excited for you. And that's so GREAT about your new neighbor :)
Have a GREAT day, but it doesn't look like I need to tell you that!!! :o)

First time reader, first time commenter. I just had that procedure done a couple weeks ago and it was VERY UNPLEASANT! Mine was definately not as positive as yours was, which made it a LOT worse. Both of my tubes are completely blocked and they even tried shoving a catheter up in there to get that thru and that didn't work. OUCH! So we're even more discouraged than we were before. But you have every reason to be encouraged right now! :)

Oh, I just PRAY good things are about to happen!!! So glad everything went well with the procedure and that it's over with...yuck. Can't wait to see pictures of your house.

I think you said your procedure was not an HSG, although it sounds just like one. GL with the results of everything hun. I have SO much faith in your new OB. He sounds a lot like my OB which I LOVE very much too. I hope your feeling better. The things we go through to get pg right??? It's all worth it in the end. I still pray for you all the time hun. Keep me posted on the results. Enjoy your house tour today. I'm sure your getting SO excited to move back in to your place.

So glad to hear your great news!!! I hope you are fully recovered and feeling better soon =)

I can relate to that uncomfortable test you had this morning. I did that at the beginning of our road down infertility treatments
It will get better after a few hours. I got pregnant through IVF but I had to get progesterone shots everyday for 2 months of my pregnancy. They aren't the funnest thing to do because you do them in your butt, but whatever helps! I am praying for you and your husband. I know what it is like to be very discouraged by not getting pregnant. Hang in there, God's timing is the best, although that isn't what you always want to hear.

By the time all these tests are done, labor is going to be a cakewalk for you!

This is great, great news - I hope you are feeling more hopeful now!

Congratulations on the abundance of good news :)!!!

Kendra said...

THAT IS FANTASTIC NEWS!!!!!!!!!!! Oh bring on the babies =)

Your story about the HSG test made me think of something funny that happened when I had my HSG! They used a plastic speculum (I swear it sounded like plastic spoons down there!) and it cracked first, then completely collapsed!! How embarrassing! The doc had to get out the old fashioned metal ones, and then he joked about it sounding like silverware!

Hope all is well with your results!!
