The Tubes Are Now Open...

Yesterday was the tube opening. This is now the second procedure that I've had done at United Hospital and they are just so wonderful. Everyone was so nice and when I was wheeled into the room to actually do the procedure there was a team of people. It was a bigger deal then I was expecting, which made me more nervous then I think I would have been otherwise. As I scooted my butt to the end of the table and propped it up on a stack of what looked like towels and they tapped my feet to the table I was put totally at ease my the lesbian nurse talking to me about anything and everything to keep my mind occupied. With a bunch of really good drugs I barely felt anything. I did feel some pressure and cramping but it didn't last long.

So, I bet you want to know the results.... THE TUBES ARE NOW OPENED

Yes, I said tubes...turns out the right tube that I was told was opened actually was a little blocked as well.

We were also told that we don't have to wait before we start trying again. Bad thing is we'll be out of town around the time AF is supposed to arrive. If AF arrives early I won't be in town for my cd3 u/s and to get my prescription for clomid to start on cd3. If AF arrives on time or a day or two late then everything should work out just fine. But I'm ok with either one. Of course I'm anxious to start again, but I've been through so much that I'll be taking this one day at a time and whatever happens happens. I won't be upset.

Yesterday was also an anniversary for K & I. It was 13 years ago yesterday from the day we met. We thought it was a great way to spend the day.
