I also did'nt realise all of the Aussies out there.
Jo - you are NOT greedy for wanting more kids. It would only be natural to want a baby with your finance.
I hope I have not got people too excited about the tubal cannulation!!! Basically it is designed to replace the dye method of checking tube patency. Instead of dye or fluid being used to check the tube, a fine, ultrasound guided cannula is fed all the way down the tubes (until it reaches the ovaries). My Dr says this method is much more effective than using fluid (maybe not if tubes are totally blocked, but if there are adhesions - which I had & did not get diagnosed in the past!) He explained it like this:
If you pour peas down the sink, fluid will go down the drain, but the peas will stay in the sink. He said blocked tubes can also be like this. If you have adhesions in the tubes, fluid will be able to pass with no problem, but the egg will get stuck like the peas! Makes sense to me. Our Dr is a tubal infertility specialist, and a leading expert in tubal microsurgery. It is such a fluke that we choose to go to him, as initially we had unexplained infertility, & we randomly selected his name off the list!!!! Before the surgery we had a 5% chance of conceiving naturally, & now have a 30% chance (going ahead with IVF anyway as we are not getting any younger!)
For all those in Melbourne - how good is this weather!!!!! It should be cold by now, so lets make the most of it
Heather - Good luck for you test on the 3rd. I have a really good feeling about you. How are you feeling?
