Keep Calm & Cruise On

So, for those that do follow my blog, again thank you…and I’m sorry.  I didn’t blog over the last week because we took the kids on a Spring Break cruise.  (I would have posted that we were going, but I get the heebie-jeebies about putting that information on the Internet before we leave town.)  I’ll post more on the cruise later with some pictures.  It was fabulous, and we successfully impressed two teenagers and one tween.  Go us!  Not posting tonight, though.  I have some sort of a sinus infection, so Todd and I are resting, relaxing, and cuddling.  We were in the car for 12 ½ hours yesterday.  Can you imagine having to drive that much in one day?!  Me, either!!  (Todd did all the driving, duh!)  J  I love my hubby!!

Anyway, I have great IVF news!  Mary Kathryn called and said that my HSG test on March 4 showed a normal uterus and good uterine cavity.  This Thursday, March 28, we will have our “mapping” appointment.  This is where they will take measurements of my uterus and cervix, do a dress rehearsal for embryo transfer, run some labs, and give us a checklist & bunch of consent forms.  I’m so excited that I have a feeling the next few days will drag on.  I think that at this point, we’ll really have an idea of when we’ll be getting pregnant and what I can and can’t do for the next several months.  We’ve been putting some plans on hold until we have this appointment, so I hope this will give us some much anticipated information.  Fingers crossed that the cervix looks long enough for two embryos!  At this point, that is my biggest concern.

Tick, Tock, Tick, Tock

Still waiting for the call from Dr. Bundren’s office to schedule my next appointment.  I’m starting to get a little anxious.  I really want to have that appointment, so I can get a schedule of how this IVF process is going to go.  How often is “too often” to call and check-in with the receptionist?  Every hour, on the hour?!  Only kidding.  I haven’t even called since my appointment last Monday.  I’m calling, now.  J

Everything Looks Good

I went in for my imaging test today.  First of all, it’s very uncomfortable.  However, they were able to tell that the septum in my uterus is gone and at the very least, my left fallopian tube and ovary are wide open.  This is great news!  This means the surgery in August worked, and we are ready to move forward with the IVF process.  Now, I just have to wait for Dr. Bundren’s office to call me with my next appointment.  At that point, we should really get some details the process.  I’m so excited!  I wish the appointment was tomorrow!!

Also, for those of you that have left comments to which I have not responded, I truly appreciate them.  I hope to get to them soon.
