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.
