I'm Moving Shoes #37

On Friday I met with an infertility endocrinologist. He discussed what I am to expect as I begin infertility treatment. The first step is to continue taking metformin, but an increased dosage from what I was taking previously. Taking into consideration my age, health and Nathan's above average sperm count...lol...the doctor is pretty optimistic that I may become pregnant on just metformin alone. If in 3 months I am not pregnant, I will then take hormones. But for now, I am hoping the metformin alone will work. He also wants me to get an a Hysterosalpingogram (HSG x-ray) to make sure my uterus is shaped correctly and that my "tubes" are open. A die is in injected inside and then it spreads through the uterus and up through the tubes to the ovaries. I will get this done after our New York trip.

  2. I also had the HSG x-ray done. It was helpful because it showed that one of my tubes was blocked and that my uterus is shaped slightly odd (but no biggie). It was weird to watch the screen that showed the dye as it went into my tubes- hopefully you get to watch it too. (As for the screen to be turned so you can see it too, if it's not already).

  4. Ok so I'm just going to tell you. I've had the HSG done as well...Maybe it won't for you, but mine hurt like crazy because I have one blocked fallopian tube and the dye didn't really have a lot of places to go. Afterward I was really nauseated because of the pain. So just prepare yourself. Good luck! Hopefully yours doesn't hurt so bad.

  7. Good luck! I'm so excited for you guys to become parents. It really is the best thing in the entire world. I hope it happens quickly for you and with as little medical intervention as possible.

  8. My mom has a tilted uterus, not uncommon. Just wanted you to know that if your girly parts aren't blocked but just shaped weird, it's no biggie.
