The Non-Update

IVF I've

I took a blogging break for awhile, but here I am, back at it! Turns out the break was healthy for me cause apparently I needed to proactively do non-infertility activities for awhile to get my mind back on focus. I got so overwhelmed and inundated and absorbed with all things IF that I literally thought about it day and night and it wasn’t doing me any favors. It’ll be back on me soon enough with beginning IVF in a few weeks, but maybe now I can ease back into things.

I had my hysteroscopy and mock transfer on Friday. It was a mercifully short procedure–go in with full bladder, insert catheter, look around. Stop to pee. Re-insert catheter, look around some more, get dressed, go home. The wet feeling of the dripping saline was probably the grossest part of the whole thing. I had immediate cramping during the hystero and spotted and cramped for a few days after. It was uncomfortable but nothing that couldn’t be tamed with ibuprofen and a heating pad.The doctor who performed it (Dr. C’s associate) was very kind. She told me that even though my uterus is turned left about 30 degrees (which I already knew) and even though it’s significantly rotated to the left (which I didn’t already know) from scar tissue, none of it should be problem enough to not go ahead with IVF. That was a huge relief!

Next step is a 2-hour nurse consult for DH and I this Friday. After that, we get all our affairs in order with the clinic and basically wait for my next period which should be sometime around August 4.

  1. I’m just now seeing this. Glad your hysteroscopy and mock transfer went well. Did Dr. G. do your procedure? I love her. My new clinic doesn’t do mock transfers and I am like, “Hmmmmm, what kind of shady business are you running here?” Haha. Luckily, I’m told that I have a straightforward uterus, so I’m going to roll with the no mock-tranfer thing, but it does make me a little nervous. That’s so exciting that you’re starting IVF so soon. August 4th is like wayyyy soon! WOO!
