My HSG was a success. It was very quick and the results were "textbook" according to my doctor. This is great news because now we can move forward with our IUI as planned. I took some pain meds ahead of time and they worked well. I thought it was uncomfortable when the pushed in the dye but that was about it. I was able to go right back to work and had no problems. I had some spotting later in the day and a little discomfort now, but she said that could happen. All in all I thought it was pretty easy and I was way more nervous than I needed to be. Really the worst part of it was that I had to have the test done at a 'surgery center' which was pretty intense. When they took me back from the waiting area it looked just like a hospital and when they took me down to the room we actually walked past rooms where they were performing surgery. The nurse kept saying that the test was really no big deal, they just have to do it at the surgery center because they need the big x-ray machine. She really was so nice :) When I left my doctor gave me a picture of the results and said hopefully your next picture like this will have a baby in it! She really is so nice and I'm very thankful that we're working with her on our treatment.
In other news, we heard back from my in-laws. I guess they don't check their email on a daily basis which is why they were so delayed in responding. My mother in law wrote the email and started off by saying that they were glad we told them and of course they would keep this confidential and then proceeded to tell us "the little she knew about infertility" and that on the female side that may have to do with having a low percentage of body fat. I was so angry when I read that! She doesn't know what our problem is because we didn't tell her and honestly we didn't ask for her opinion on our situation. I'm sure she doesn't mean it like that, but really? Not supportive! J responded to her and simply said "L's body fat is normal. The issue is with me." Is it wrong that I was to say "HA!" to her the next time I see her? It's just hard when this is how she responds to things because I can only complain to J about it so much because she's his mom, you know? Now that my mom knows about our situation, I can vent some of this to her too which I'm super relieved about. I think that all my venting to J is putting extra strain on our relationship.
