Y’all…so sorry we have been MIA!!! Summer has us like…whoa!!! Life, little’s and lots of fun, has kept us very busy Mommas!!!
But we’re back and excited!
So Momma Jess is gearing up for her IVF cycle and we are excited and anxious to follow her journey to her Miracle #2!!!
Today was a big day because she got the green light on her IVF cycle!! We know everyone here isn’t “in the know” on all of this IVF stuff so we’ll start basic…here’s a note from Jess about where they are! Can’t wait to watch this journey unfold!
“So I promised to educate on what this whole ivf process is like…today we’ll talk where we are so far.
First step for us is getting on birth control. Sounds backwards huh?! Well, this helps hormone production, controlling ovulation and getting the body prepped for injections. So I’ve been taking it for a couple weeks and yuck! I do not miss how BC makes me feel! But it’s only for a little while and I finally found one my body doesn’t hate!
Today, was important because we got the green light!!! How?
I had a Sonohysterogram- what is that? It goes by several names- a saline ultrasound, a saline sonogram…
Here’s what “Dr Google” says…
Sonohysterography is a special kind of ultrasound exam. Fluid is put into the uterus through the cervix using a thin plastic tube. Sound waves are then used to create images of the lining of the uterus. The fluid helps show more detail than when ultrasound is used alone.
Basically it’s super uncomfortable but really amazing! I’ll be resting the rest of the night because this one ultrasound always gets me good with the cramping afterwards. But I have a “beautiful uterine cavity”…which is totally worth a “high-5” in the fertility world!!!! 🙋🏼🙋🏻♂️💁🏼
