So it looks like my tubes are okay. I've got to tell you though, it hurt like a mother! The lady said it'd feel a lot like menstrual cramps. But it was like 10 times worse. I was almost in tears. But it didn't take too long so the pain was temporary. So I'll see the OB on Friday for my PCT and hopefully he'll give me some progesterone to help my luteal phase.

Please Pray

I'd really appreciate it if you'd pray for Josh's cousin's family. We got a call about an hour and a half ago and were told that his cousin's daughter (Mollie 9 or 10 yrs old) drowned this evening and was pronounced dead at 6pm Hawaii time. This is about 2 or 3 years after her 6 yr old son died after being run over. Today was actually his birthday as well. Needless to say, Jennifer (Josh's cousin) isn't doing too well. She does have a 15 year old son, but she isn't able to have anymore children. So please pray for them.

What was I thinking?????

Okay, so I've volunteered to help with this Drug Education For Youth thing. Sounds like it'll be kinda fun, but I have no idea what exactly I'll be doing. The bad part is that I volunteered before I got a part time job at WalMart where I'm working until midnight most evenings. Then I normally sleep in until around 10 or 11. But here I am up before 7 after going to bed around 1am. I have no idea what time I'll be finished. Hopefully, I'll have enough time to get a nap before I have to go back to work at 7 tonight!! It's only a week and a half so I should be able to do this. I guess it'll also get me prepared for how it will be once the school year starts back--assuming I ever get a teaching job!

Dr's appointments

Okay so I've got a couple more appointments to see what's going on with the whole trying to get pregnant. According to my bloodwork that I had done last week, my progesterone level was low so he may put me on some medication for that. Next Monday, June 25, I have an appointment for an HSG and my PCT on Friday, the 29th. Josh should be excited because the PCT will mean morning sex on Friday :)

Out of town

Josh and I are going to San Antonio to celebrate our 3 year anniversary. We're leaving tomorrow and won't be back until next Thurs. I hope you all have a great weekend :)

Dr's Appt

Okay, so I'm back from my doctor's appointment. He went through a bunch of questions and did an exam. He says that I'm close to ovulating. He suspects PCOS but my bloodwork doesn't match up with that diagnosis. I'm supposed to go back next Thursday for more bloodwork to check progesterone levels. I'm also supposed to call when my next cycle starts so we can set up an appointment for an HSG and PCT. He's not going to do a S/A because the PCT should let him know whether or not there's a male factor. So not a lot of info yet, but we're getting started.

oh, he also told me that if we're BDing at least twice a week, it's probably not a matter of timing so I don't really NEED to temp since it can get real old and add stress. But I personally like knowing exactly where in my cycle I am

another cool thing he said was that often when they do the HSG, the woman gets KU within a few months b/c when they shoot the dye up your tubes it can clear any blockage.

Appointment tomorrow

Since Josh and I have been trying to get pregnant for over a year now, I have an OB appointment tomorrow afternoon. I'm really not sure what to expect. Kinda nervous. I had bloodwork done back in April. I picked up my results today. I don't know exactly what I'm looking at, but everything was within the ranges listed on the paperwork. So I'm guessing that's a good sign. Stay tuned for results :)
