S called me this morning with the following news: She called the radiology department, by herself, and rescheduled the appointment, for…today!
She had an HSG at 2:30 this afternoon.
After a talk with a good friend of hers (isn’t it amazing the clarity that can result from a heartfelt conversation with someone other than your partner?) yesterday afternoon, and a reflective morning alone with LM (I work on Wednesdays) she decided she was 100% committed to doing whatever is necessary to get her pregnant.
So it is done! Everyone at the place was SUPER nice to her because of all the tears yesterday. But they could have *easily* been snappy and cold, seeing as she walked out on the appointment yesterday when they had already opened everything and prepped the instruments and the room.
The procedure was painful for her, but not terribly so. It was over quickly. When they first put the dye in, it immediately went through one tube, and did not go through the other. S had to move and shift positions, the doc asked if she had had any abdominal surgery (yes she had an appendectomy at age 12) . Finally the dye moved through the other tube. Apparently he said everything looked fine and did not seem concerned that the one tube did not easily fill. S and I wonder whether there was a small blockage, kink, or if it was stuck together. The doc will know more when the xrays are developed, but he is not expecting anything abnormal.
I think the dye trouble is a good sign (if it got cleared). If one tube was blocked we would technically have only tried 3 times when an egg was viably reachable. This gives me some hope. I have no earthy idea if it is true though. But yay for us. Yay for S. She ovulates next Tuesday. Wow that is in 6 days.
Off we go. Relationship intact, check. S’s reproductive organs intact (if a bit radiated), check. Some hope of conceiving a Scorpio baby this month, check.
