Please Please Please...No HSG...
We're down to the wire...less than three weeks before we go back to our awesome fertility specialist! I can't believe we'll be going back to begin the process again, to try for number two! It doesn't seem too long ago that we were trying for number one.
Our doctor is really great...very warm and believes in western and holistic medicine. He's kind of a loopy, ex-hippy, medical genius. He's all about hugging and about balance in your life. He's quite a trip, but in a good way. It's really interesting to have such a lively, "out-there" doctor who visibly loves his job. I mean-this guy LOVES what he does. And thank God....he's really just amazing.
But oh man! I HOPE that I don't have to have another HSG test. For those lucky enough to never have had to face an HSG-I'm jealous. Anyway, it's basically injecting dye into your fallopian tubes to make sure they are open. Some people say it doesn't hurt-but it hurt like h3ll-for me anyway! So my mantra lately is "please no hsg, please no hsg". Hopefully it pays off, because last time around I was naive, this time I know better! But you gotta do what you gotta do, especially if it gets us another healthy baby.
