Our baby making process continues! Our next appointment was for the ultrasound and physical. When I showed up to the appointment they checked my weight, blood pressure, heart, breathing… and then it was time for the magic wand! If you don’t know what the magic wand is you’ll see it in the video (below) This wand is used for the ultrasound! The ultrasound was nice and quick… uncomfortable BUT quick. This exam checked my ovaries, uterus, cervix, and Fallopian tubes. The doctor said everything looked great! She even said there were eggs in there! WAHOO!
The next day we had to go to the Hospital to get the HSG test done. I guess you can say that this was step 4 of the baby making process. The first two were blood tests (The CMV blood test and the Ovarian Reserve blood test – you can Watch the Baby Making Process Pt. 1 HERE) the third was the ultrasound and now this… The HSG Test that I was not excited about.
I heard a ton of different things from people who have done the HSG test… I think that’s what got me all worked up about the test. I was so nervous! The HSG test is a radiology procedure that is done at the hospital and sometimes it’s done at an outpatient facility. What they do is inject dye into the uterine cavity through the cervix… that dye fills the Fallopian tubes and spills into the abdominal cavity. This basically shows whether or not the Fallopian tubes are open or blocked by something. If the Fallopian tubes are blocked… there’s a possibility that it’ll be difficult to get pregnant.
The HSG test is SUPER uncomfortable! I’m not going to lie… Those 5 minutes felt like 30! You feel sharp pains, you cramp, you feel constipated.. BUT it’s something you have to do when you’re using a donor. This is all a part of the process!
