The good, the bad, the goodbye money

The good: no HSG! Just a sonohysterogram. Which is making me crampy but was no worse than a pap. Edit: oh shit these cramps got worse. My husband is now questioning if I can handle pregnancy. The bad: I have a little polyp, so I need to get that removed in the next two weeks. Ugh. The goodbye money: this was the "sign all the consents and hand over several thousand dollars" appointment as well.

  1. I'm glad you didn't have to deal with an hsg. You CAN handle pregnancy, it's not very crampy just stretchy (pretend you don't get contractions at the end...they're worth it). Yuck. Handing over money sucks.

  5. I didn't find the HSG that bad HOWEVER it's awesome that you got to skip that part.

    Infertility and money - sucks that something so many get for free we have to pay for. The injustice!

    I really like you blog header by the way. Super funny!

  6. So glad that you didn't have to have an HSG!

    Oh yes, money and IF. It sucks. I try not to think about how much we've spent, but it's so hard not to!

  7. Is a sonohystorgram the same as a saline sonogram (they shoot water into your uterus and do an ultrasound)? I think it is.

    But just had to share -- I also had a little polyp-y looking thing when I had one. And we were planning to operate and remove it. My RE thought we should repeat the sonogram the following month before doing the surgery, and good thing we did because then it was gone.

    He thinks it was just an errant blob that got period-ed out. At the time, I was a few months past a D&C for a miscarriage, so who knows what was going on in there. Anyway, I guess my point is maybe wait a month and repeat the test?

    I am not too familiar with your history, though -- and I am of course not a doctor myself. I just give all my money to my doctors!

  8. Per that previous worry... if you ever need one. My HSG was nowhere NEAR as painful as giving birth (sans drugs at the end) to one baby. It was uncomfortable at most. I think it just depends on your body and situation. :) It was also really cool to watch. :)
