Full Moon, HSG, IUI, Friday the 13th and an Anniversary!

So here we are already into February. This month has already been very busy. It started out with me starting a cycle on my own 4 days before our RE appointment. Steve wasn't able to go but it was just a video conference anyway. The doc and I talked about my weight and where to go next with my treatment. He said since I have had two cycles on my own back to back that we could try another round of pills if I wanted to. I said, "Sure, why not?" He said he liked my Clomid cycle last year better than my Femara cycles so we did clomid. He also watned to do an HSG to recheck my fallopian tubes since it had been 3 years since my last one.

We drove to Birmingham on Sunday for CD10 bloodwork and then back on Monday for the HSG. The HSG went good. Both my tubes are open and the uterus looks good. The procedure went well however afterward I had an "inflamatory reaction" to the dye they used. Basically all the tissue in my abdomen and on the outer parts of my organs became inflamed and irritated. Boy, that sure didn't feel good. I felt like my insides were on fire and were going to explode out of my body. So on Tuesday I ended up back at the doctor. They did bloodwork and an ultrasound and everything seemed to be ok. Basically I just had to wait out the absorbtion of the dye into my body. UGG!

However there was one positive side to me having to go in on Tuesday. During the ultrasound Ms. Sarah discovered three follicals very near they gave me my trigger shot and scheduled my IUI for the next day. Steve and I went in yesterday and did IUI #5. I figure with the combination of the full moon, the HSG, the IUI, Friday the 13th and our 5th Wedding Anniversary on Valentine's Day that something has got to happen this month. I hope anyway! 5th IUI....5th Anniversary.....see my thinking?! :D

Anyway, I'm feeling much better today and know that all will be well! 13 days and dounting until we test! I hope I can wait!
