Blood Test

Posted 02-15-2011 06:51 PM by patientlywaitn

So our computer crashed last week and I haven't been able to access the internet at all, so nice to have it back! I went for blood work today to determine whether or not I am actually ovulating; I'm pretty sure this one will come back normal. For the last few months, I have noticed that my body appears to follow a pretty specific cyclical pattern. I don't know if it's always been that way, since before ttc i didn't pay all that much attention to it. But pretty much, I begin to get breast tenderness...

Sigh of Relief!

Posted 02-05-2011 07:13 PM by patientlywaitn

Got my HSG done on Friday and what a relief to have it over with! I started out excited to be moving on with the process of finding out the cause of our conception troubles but as the day got closer I found myself getting more and more nervous - I didn't know what it would feel like and what kind of results to expect. But I had the most wonderful staff! The nurse was great and talked and laughed with me the whole time. Then the doc and the woman that was assisting her came in and were just as much...

Finally

Posted 01-29-2011 09:43 AM by patientlywaitn

AF finally showed up (yesterday)! It's close enough to when I called the nurse that the results of the tests will not be affected. My fiance and I are excited - we are hopeful that the HSG will help us conceive and if not we will at least be closer to defining the problem and solving it! It has been a crazy week for both of us in our lives outside of TTC so this one bit of good news was warmly received! I must note though that the day AF arrived I found myself once again in a foul mood that we are...

Oops!

Posted 01-27-2011 04:51 PM by patientlywaitn

banging my head against the wall today lol. My mood is great but I'm annoyed with AF! I spotted for a few minutes yesterday morning and since i never spot between periods, I figured I had started. So i called my nurse and set up my HSG appointment and 21-day test. However, I have had no bleeding since! We DTD last night since I figured AF was on her way and we wouldn't be able to for another few days but still nothing all day today. In all other respects this has been a normal cycle for me; heavy...

First Appointment

Posted 01-25-2011 06:27 PM by patientlywaitn

Had the consultation today! Things went well (although brief). I sat down with the doc for 20 minutes or so and discussed our history and subsequent plan of action for the next few weeks / months. I was so nervous at first but I absolutely love my doc and he set me at ease at once. Once I start my next cycle (should be on Thursday or the next few days after), I call the office to schedule a dye test, which he said they like to do on cycle day 9 or so. Then, on day 21, I do a progesterone test to...
