I have an appointment with Dr. Hopeful tomorrow. She will be doing a SIS (saline infused sonogram) to check out my uterus, to make sure there are no polyps or other irregularities before we start IVF in the next few weeks. The last time I had it checked in August, the doctor said it was "perfect". I have undergone 3 hysteroscopies in 2005 and 2008 to remove polyps which can and sometimes do return. If you are the praying kind, please pray that this sonogram will go well, and that Dr. Hopeful will not find anything unwanted there. If they do, I may need to have surgery again to remove any polyps before we can proceed with IVF.
We will also be doing a trial transfer at this appointment tomorrow. According to Dr. Goo.gle, this procedure consists of a pelvic exam and placement of a tiny catheter inside the uterus to determine the direction and length of the uterine cavity. It's supposed to minimize trauma to the uterine lining during the embryo transfer. I will do a post after the appointment tomorrow. Today also marks my 1 week of taking BCPs.
Last night, my Babe and I went over to my MIL and FIL's to watch the Super Bowl, and to take advantage of their Tur.bo Tax software. We found out that my Babe had forgotten to update his deductions on his paycheck after I stopped working last year. He had paid too much taxes, so now we will be getting some money back from both state and federal. I'm happy as the money will go directly into paying for part of the IVF cycle!
I have decided that I will not tell my Mom about our upcoming IVF cycle. After our last incident with trust issues about telling others, it is best not to tell her until it is a success. My sister agrees that Mom does not need to know or worry, and it will give me more peace about it too.
One last thing, if you have not already signed up for my first giveaway, make sure you do. The last day to sign up is Wednesday!
