Another Update

Once again here we are in a TWW. We insem'd yesterday and everything went great. Our donor sample was 25 million with over 50% motility and K had 2 follicles. This sample is much better then the first sample we used from this donor which was 11 million and only 30% motility. We were very happy with the improved numbers.

During Saturday's u/s we were asked if K had an HSG. Of course she did, why??? They think they might have seen a polyp. I'm like, REALLY??? I don't think so. She has had probably 15 ultrasounds over the last 3 months and you haven't seen a thing. She had an HSG which was clear as a bell and now, all of a sudden, you see a polyp in that fuzzy picture???? I really don't think so. But I guess the next step, if she doesn't get a BFP, will be a saline sonogram that the RE will do. I guess that test will show a very clear picture of the uterus. First, we're going to be pregnant this round so this will be a non-issue. But I guess my next question would be... If this is such a great test and her insurance has been covering all of these tests why didn't we just do the test in the first place?? Why weren't we told about it as an option?? We haven't said no to a single test because after going through everything we've been through with me and how much money we've spent we want to be informed. We want to know if anything is wrong and for 3 months everything has been perfect with K.

Can you hear my frustration???

I've put K on pretty much couch rest whenever possible for the next 2 weeks. I'm not chancing anything. I really have a good feeling about this one. I have to stay positive because if I don't I think I'm going to lose it. Of course I'm strong and I would pull it back together, but in the meantime I would really lose it.

That's it for now. Send us all the good vibes you have.

  5. Numbers sound great! I think you may be right, this one is gonna work!!!!

    But I also would be frustrated. You have clearly been opening to testing and such. Sometimes I think the docs don't really think through our care.

  7. Great numbers. And my RE said an HSG gives you all the info you would get in a saline sono plus extra info about the fallopian tubes. So, if she had the HSG, the sono would not be necessary, I think.

  10. Yeah, I found out about that test through the internet and made my doctor do it for those exact reasons. Why not? And insurance covers it, sounded like a no brainer, right? I seriously don't get why these drs don't do all the covered tests just in case.

  12. How frustrating! Yuk! I hope hope hope that you don't have to worry about a blasted polyp!
    I have never had an HSG and had two saline sonograms and that's how they spotted the fibroid that I had removed last week. I wish I knew more to advise you on. Let's think pregnant thoughts and keep thinking them for two weeks!
    rooting for you both!

  13. My RE only did the HSG and I was the one who insisted on the Saline Sono. If it's covered, why not do it? There's always something, isn't there?
    Regardless, the numbers and timing seem great and I'm sending sticky vibes your way..
