So I had my appointment today.
I was so nervous. So nervous. I have never been examined by a man before. The only man to see down there is literally my husband. But now Dr. Perry and his Dr. In training were inserting objects into me and staring at my lady bits.
LUCKILY, Dr. Perry is amazing and tried to keep me covered 90% of the time. If he wasn’t inserting or removing an instrument, he had a blaket over me. I’m so thankful for that.
So. How did it go?
Well they did an ultrasound to look at everything. He said I have like 12 follicles in one ovary and like 15 in the other. Which is a lot less than he was expecting (a good thing). My uterus and everything looked good.
So now he inserted a camera and a catheter with saline in to actually look at it.
It was super cold. And felt like I was peeing myself. I got to actually see my fallopian tubes. It was REALLY cool. They then put a few air bubbles in my uterus. And bloop bloop bloop. There they went up my tubes (which is great).
Then, now that my uterus has some fluid, ultra sound again.
He then looked at my ovaries and saw where an egg was maturing on its own! He said it looks like it will drop on Sunday.
Then he talked about what everything meant.
He left and his nurse came in to tell me that if I don’t get pregnant from this egg that we have the choice of what we want to do.
We can do the medicine for $100 a month. Or insemination for $1000 for 3 tries.
BUT she has noticed that a lot of women end up pregnant after this examination.
That for some reason when they lube up the tubes and uterus with the saline and air bubbles, that the sperm get there.
SO HOPEFULLY in about 3 weeks we will be pregnant with Judah or Merryn. ❤👶
