Hi ladies,

I had my consultation and the DR wants me to have another HSG!! Last time I had one was about 2 yrs ago.
(This is when the put dye in your tubes to look for any blockage and it kinda helps to clean you out. But you have bad cramps) Not looking forward to that!!

But I read that it kinda helps with fertility and that many women get preggers after.

I will start my cycle after my March AF.

Hope everyone is great!!

Hi ladies

Jackie, oh what a pain. Do they think things will have changed over 2 years? HSG is not the most pleasant of procedures is it? Poor you. When will it be?

I am back from Ireland feeling refreshed and positive. No Af but no supprise there! I will ring the clinic tomorrow to decide a plan of action which will hopefully fit in around when the clinic is open/closed. Wish me luck!

Love to Jen, Dizzie and Rachel, hope you are Ok

Tracci, just hang in there. I'm sure things will pick up soon. Your clinic must think it will happen or they would have abandoned your cycle wouldn't they?Good luck for Thursday, fingers crossed.

Jackie, I am on day 42 :( Due to clinic being closed AF needs to arrive before 24th Feb or after 5th March. The chances are very slim...help. I will be waiting again next month!! ARRRGGGHH!! I don't know whether to jig or sit still :lol: :lol:

Hi ladies

Jackie, hope you are having good quality time with dh. Good luck for tomorrow. Hope HSG goes well and you are back home resting up soon. Will they tell you the results straight away or will you have to wait a while...wait, now there's a word we don't use very often... :lol: :lol:

Jen, have posted elsewhere, but, really glad to see your dad is on the up and out of hospital. Great news!!

Tracii, how are you? Are you growing those follies? Zita recommends a hot water bottle on your tummy. Hang in there.

Hi to Rachel and Dizzie

PMA to all

Hi Girls - I am hanging in there..counting the days until tomorrow :D I am hoping and praying something has happened. Last time my bloods showed E2 levels were going up so I am sure that is why the clinic has not cancelled. I have been walking around like a mother hen with a hot water bottle. Yesterday I was at acu and my doc said I had great 'chi' flowing (energy) so must be a good sign. I am not counting the first 6 days of stimming because my body did not react at all (my E2s actually went down during this time :shock: )....so last scan on Saturday was 4 days and this thursday will be 9 days of stimming.

I must say this is really testing my patience (which I have none to begin with).... :D

Traci, I just popped over to see how you were doing. Best of luck tomorrow at the scan. I'll be keeping everything crossed that the stims have kicked in and are doing what they should have been doing all along.

hugs to everyone on this thread.

hi Ladies, how's things today?

Jackie, how did it go yesterday? Did you have the saline procedure or the HSG in the end. Hope you are OK. What happens now?

Tracii, how was your scan? Thinking of you. Hope the follies have grown and you are counting the days to EC.

Looks like another month of waiting for me. Who knows? Day 45, slight spotting (tmi) and AF cramps. Watch this space....but please stop jigging!!!

Hi girls,

So my appointment yesterday, all we did was talk to thr DR. I told him my concerns and that we should only do the procedure between day 11-14 of your cycle so we are doing it next month.

He said that he would be very gentle. I dont know how he can be gentle because the cause of the cramps is from the dye or the saline??!!

We are waiting for AF (March 3rd) and we will do it next month. I also will start Lupron around the 17th.

Hi Jen, Dizzie, Anna and Rachel. Hope your all OK.

Traci ... You haven't posted for a couple of days .... We're all hoping that you are okay, and that you just can't get to your pc. Today will be day 11 of stims ? Have you had another ultrasound ?

Hope everything is moving along nicely for you now and we wait for your news ..
