Today is Test Day

“Well played, Uterus… Well played…”-Punks and Nerds

Today is my hysteroscopy test day and I’m a little nervous. Men have it so easy when it comes to medical stuff. What’s the most stressful thing they have to deal with, turning their head to cough? Well, besides those Jerry Springer men who have to stress about paternity tests anyway. Well for me, today I get to have C02 gas pumped into my uterus. Yup, you read that right. Gas going in. Gas should never go in places, just out. For those who are unfamiliar with this test, it’s basically the uterus version of a colonoscopy. They put a camera up there and they go looking for treasure, or in my case, a septum, fibroids, endometriosis, you name it.

I have to say though, this is the most excited I’ve ever been for a medical procedure. I’m excited because if they do find something, it would mean answers, and it would give me some much needed reassurance for when we start trying again.

If the doctors don’t find anything, my new high risk doctor (who is incredible, and working closely with my equally wonderful OB) said he will give me progesterone and monitoring me closely from my second trimester on for the next baby. It feels really good to have a team of doctors on my side for next time. I feel a little more prepared. I know it will be terrifying when we do try again, but at least they’re going to take every precaution they can.

So wish me luck. I kind of hope I do have a septum, because the fix is relatively easy, and the success rate for future pregnancies to go full term is really high. I’m scared it’s going to hurt, and be emotional, so positive thoughts would be much appreciated!
