HSG today

Well, on the positive side - no tube blockage, and so far no cramping. Oh, another plus: it's over.

I did not enjoy this experience at all. I didn't like being taken from an exam room to an operating room with a stupid sheet wrapped around my waist. I also didn't like the touching, prodding, poking that went along with this exam. I also did not enjoy the fight I got in with my dh over him not making an illegal U-Turn in order to get me to the appointment on time. (Me: "God damn it, can you stop driving like a little old lady? Sheesh!" Him: "I'm not going to Starbucks anymore so we can save $3.00 a day, and you want me to blow that all on a $300.00 ticket?" ) Yeah, good times.

The human brain is so crazy. I know this exam was very, very uncomfortable, sort of painful for short amounts of time, and yet, 2 hours later, I can barely remember it. I just remember telling myself: this sucks!

Anyway, I'm feeling fine and looking forward to the next steps. Hopefully tomorrow I'll find out what exactly those are.

HSG is no fun. Congrats on being done with that. I feel like it was one of the worst things that I've had to do for IF. And this is coming from a girl with 3 hysteroscopies and a lap behind her.

I'm glad you're done with it, good luck on what you have to look forward to next (hopefully great things!)

Yea, HSG's are no fun. But then again, it seems that anything related to IF. It's like going to the dentist: all the stuff they use taste nasty.

I hope that you continue to get positive news. Just think of all the good stories you'll have to tell your kids one day. :)
