November 4th, Saline Sono and Trial Transfer

It's been a week since I started meds. It's been going well.... Some headaches, nausea, grogginess, and....some other stuff, but it's not *so* bad. I have another week taking what I'm on now and then I start adding in other meds. Not too shabby..

Today, though, I went back to see Dr H for my saline sonogram and trial transfer. This time I dragged Jayme along.


We went back to my "usual" room to wait for Dr H and Nancy. The wait is much easier, I admit, when you have someone to talk to while bare bottomed. Jayme swore she would hold my hand if I returned the favor when she births her first baby. (And, I mean, of course I will!!)

Dr H came in, explained the saline sonogram and trial transfer. And basically, in my very unscientific and unprofessional terms, he inserted a catheter into my uterus, through my cervix. This was to make sure they had a clear path into my uterus when they actually have the embryo to transfer. They injected the saline to check for polyps or fibroids in the endometrium. 

My uterus looked great and overall it was a fairly easy procedure!

^^my uterus filled with the saline. It was pretty neat to actually watch it fill on the screen. Jayme was equally impressed. ;)

So, that was that!! I'm still on the estrogen (pills and patches) and added in baby aspirin. I scheduled my next ultrasound and blood work for next Tuesday!! 

Here's to hoping my uterine lining is thick and my progesterone levels are low!!


  1. This is so exciting! I'm so happy for you & this new journey!
