First test down... how many more to go?

My HSG went much better than I expected. I was really nervous the morning of and just wanted it to be over. The nurse was so sweet, and I am very grateful for her. Honestly, I didn't feel anything at all. The worst part was the clamp they use during paps. It was mostly just awkward. The only time it hurt was when they went to remove everything. All came back 100% clear, and they said everything looked perfect. Praise God!

So, now I guess we move on to my husband's test. He really, really doesn't want to go. I'm trying not to put any pressure on him. But, I went by my obgyn's office to pick up the referral. I'm hoping he'll decide to go sometime before the end of the month, because I'm super nervous about his test results. I just want him to get it over with! After his test, we will both have blood tests to check hormone levels. Then, I don't know what comes after that.

We celebrated our 4 year wedding anniversary on Thursday. I got a little emotional thinking back to our dinner last year on our anniversary. We were talking about how we hoped on our 4th anniversary we would be staying home with a new baby. Fast forward to year 4 and we aren't even pregnant. : ( I also can't help but think about how my due date would be approaching soon. I may have to take off work that day. I'm not sure I can do it.

My sister's house is completely set up and ready to go for her baby. She is due in a little over a month now. I went over to babysit my niece and nephew Monday night for their hospital tour. Seeing the nursery all ready and the baby clothes and swing just about broke my heart. I almost couldn't take it. Having the summer off has proven to be difficult. There's just too much time to think about losing our sweet baby.

This is month 11 of TTC. I know that's not too long. Considering we had a miscarriage as well, but I wanted to start the testing now for peace of mind and also because I had a lot of money on my HSA that will expire in September. Oh, I forgot to mention that the HSG was only $215 instead of $600! I'm still waiting for my bill from the technician but this was good news!


  1. I'm so glad that your test went well. Still thinking about you lots!!

  2. I know a lot of people on The Bump get pregnant after the HSG. Even if you were clear it helps to really open it up. Thinking of you!

  3. Sending hopeful thoughts from another pre-planner in Colorado! :: crosses fingers :: You are inspiring more people then you know! :: hugs ::

  4. Chelsea and Bridgette, I'm so blessed to have the two of you always cheering me on. I'm so thankful!

  5. Oh how I remember that. So thankful that all turned out clear for you! You've jumped one hurdle successfully, and I know without a doubt one day you'll cross the finish line. Keep pressing, Momma!
