Cysty Ultrasound Day

13 Jun

We spent the first half of our anniversary at the beach yesterday.

And the second half in bed watching movies, while periodically rubbing aloe on each other after we fell asleep in the sun and didn’t put on more sunblock. 😉


In other news, I was adamant with my doctor that my cysts be rechecked before we start another round of clomid, so today’s ultrasound day.  I’m not nervous about it because there’s no way that it will hurt as badly as it did last month.  I’m still having twinges of pain off and on, but I’m really hoping it’s just ovulation pain.  Today is cycle day 22, so I have 2 weeks before starting clomid again.
I have an appointment with my doctor tomorrow and I’m really hoping it will be productive.  I want a game plan for the rest of them summer and I’m going to push HARD for an IUI by the end of summer if the clomid still isn’t working.  I plan on making it perfectly clear that I want her to be more aggressive with our treatments.
Why move so fast on the IUI?  As of Monday, I have two forms of health insurance until December 31.   Two.  Both cover a portion of fertility treatments, so we’re going to utilize them as much as possible while we have them.

It’s a little scary to think of doing an IUI so soon.  We had planned on waiting until next summer to try our first one, but this makes more sense, so we’re rolling with it.. 🙂  It’s silly to go through this month after month when if we just tried something else, it might work.  We just want to have a baby.  At this point, how it gets here seems almost irrelevant.

That’s so weird to say that when just a few months ago I was lamenting that we aren’t going to be able to make one on our own.  It really bothered me.  Now, I just want this horrible situation to be over as quickly as possible.

I have to start drinking my 32 oz of water in about an hour.  Yikes.

My question for you ladies is:  If you ever had an ultrasound while you were NOT pregnant, did it bother you at all?  Did seeing your very empty uterus really suck?  That’s how I felt last time and am trying to look at it more positively this time.  Trying.

    Ive had more than 25 vaginal ultrasounds in the last 7 months and Ive not been pregnant in a single one of them. Baby steps sweetpea, you have to get some good follicles before you you can hope for an ultrasound where there will be a baby in there. I know its hard and Im sorry.

    I’ve had about 12 non-pregnant ultrasounds and I actually really enjoyed the process….well, not the wand part, but getting to see my insides. I found it fascinating! I even got really attached to my follicles the first time I ever saw them on the screen. It made my first failed IUI even harder because I felt like I had already seen my babies. Fingers crossed for no cysts and lots of ovulation!!! (is that possible?) 🙂

    I have had three vaginal ultra sounds, non have been painful a little bit uncomfortable the first two times jus,t because it was awkward but then I have leaned to aspect it as part of the process. And it’s a trial run for pregnancy because you know there will be a lot more poking and imaging when your pregnant and especially giving birth. Relax and breath it’s all going to be worth it.
