Dr. Appt update

So this morning I went in for my doctors appointment. Since I have been ovulating nicely the last 4 months and still nothing has happened we decided to do more testing. So as I suspected he wants to do the HSG to see whats going on in my uterus and my tubes. The shocker was that he said he was going to try to get it covered by insurance since he suspects that there is just a bunch of blood and gunk left over from my c-section so he's going to label it as such. That would be nice if it was because that would save me $600!!

He still wants me to continue taking the clomid to keep me ovulating but since clomid can make your lining thin making it impossible for implantation then changing the medication may be worth it. So if I am not pregnant this month then he is going to switch it to femara generic brand (which just came out btw and is only $25-35 and that does not affect your lining and doesn't have all the nasty side effects that clomid does) and then do a sperm analysis on my husband. We are waiting on that because we both think it is me that is the issue and insurance will not cover that and the test is $150.

So that is the plan.

I get my hsg done on monday and if I do have blockages that the dye doesn't flush out then I will need to do surgery to remove it. If my tubes are clear then he said its still worth it because essentially it clears the "plumbing" making your fertility increase for at least 3 months. He said if I don't get pregnant soon after then he doesn't think I'llever need to do IUIs or IVF because I've gotten pregnant so easy before so he'll just keep changing up my meds and hopefully one time we'll get it. We shall see!
So I'm not sure if this is good or bad luck but this little statue that my mom got me for Mothers Day when I was pregnant (just a couple weeks before I had Jayda) broke yesterday. I bumped into the tv and it just totally got knocked off. I wasn't sure whether to take it as a sign or as breaking a bad curse. So now this little statue is sitting on my tv with its head off. Hopefully its not a omen of things to come. :)


  1. It's not a bad omen, it's happened to me before (but with a husband and wife hugging, the wife's head broke off) all it needs is a little super glue. :)

    Good luck with everything, I hope it helps. I'm glad he's billing it so insurance will cover it. He did something similar for my sister after he c-section. Gotta love doctors like that.

  2. I don't think it's a bad omen either, just super glue it, smile and and laught it off=) It's another bump on the road but you will get pregnant and Jayda will be a big sister, fear not! That's great your Dr. is going to work with you and try to get the test covered. I hope everything works itself out and I'm curious how the hsg goes. Good luck!

  3. I have about six of those statues and almost all of them have been knocked down by my husband or my kids and knocked the heads off. Not a bad omen at all but I like your idea that it is breaking a bad curse.

    Good luck! Seems like you are doing everything you need to do. I hope that things turn around for you soon!!
