I’ve been slacking on the posts because life is a bit overwhelming at the moment. I’m halfway through my second to last quarter of classes and my parents decided to come visit for a week. In between writing papers, answering midterm questions, and writing discussion board posts, I’ve been cramming in 30 hours of classroom observations. Thankfully, I’m almost finished! That means I can finally get back into my normal routine, which includes going back to spin and muscles classes.
Since we’re currently sitting on the TTC bench until the beginning of next year, I decided to go through with any and all testing that my RE suggests in preparation for IVF. After some scheduling conflicts due to not having a negative pregnancy test (talk about a stab to an infertile’s heart after a failed IUI) on file, I finally had my saline sonogram done. I was nervous because another doctor would be performing the procedure since my RE was out of the clinic. Surprisingly, everything went well and I only experienced some minor cramping after the procedure was over with. Nurse D told me that everything looked clear. We also discussed scheduling an HSG to check out my tubes. D thought that I had had one done before – nope! Since I can’t schedule the HSG until the next cycle day 1, I’m looking at popping some birth control pills. My chart is all over the place and I haven’t ovulated or had a period without drugs in who knows how long, so I’ll go in for another darn blood test on cycle day 35, then start the birth control. D suggested that I just stay on the pills until E gets home so we can time one more IUI before our IVF cycle in April.
