The hysteroscopy was this morning.  OUCH.  It was as bad (maybe even a little worse) than the HSG.  Luckily it didn't take very long, and my uterus looked "perfect" according to the doc.  I went for my bloodwork and they took 17 (!!!) vials.  So much for going to work today.

Now, the bad news.  The IVF nurse looked at the calendar and set me to start Lupron around the 6th of September.  Unfortunately, we will be on vacation that week.  So, I have to wait another cycle to start the Lupron.  My FET will most likely not be until mid- to late-October at this rate, which I am bummed about.  I was looking forward to getting things going ASAP.  I guess that's just more bad luck lately.

Very excited for my blog friend Gurlee, who got some great news today!!

FET #2 is (almost) on the books!

You-know-who made her arrival today, so we're now all systems go for FET #2.  I have to go for a "uterine sound" tomorrow (I guess that's what they call a trial transfer) and then a hysteroscopy and bloodwork on Monday.  I imagine I'll be starting BCP's next week as well.  Not getting my hopes up this time.  I've had a terrible few days.  I got stuck on a flooded road on Monday and my car died.  It turns out that water got into the engine and now I need a new engine.  I was shocked to hear that news, especially since my car is only 3 years old.  So, I've been spending the last 2 days on the phone with my insurance company, the mechanic, rental car company etc.  Work is also going pretty badly with lots of stress and problematic cases.  If this one works it will be a true miracle.  I imagine it will be sometime in late September or early October, but I guess I'll find out next week.  Is anyone still reading?  Comments have been light lately (though I've been a bad commenter too - sorry).
