And the saga continues....

Well, now that I've officially "come out" to my parents and Shooter's parents...I figured...why not do the same to the whole 4 people who read my blog.


I've hinted in the past about some hard things going on with me. Basically, Shooter and I have been trying for the last 7 months to have a little Shooter/Shooter-ette. Unfortunately we've not been successful in our attempts - but do not feel sorry for us, we've had fun trying.


Last week I had blood drawn to see if all my internal stuff was working like it's supposed to be. I found out this morning (all but one test came back) that everything looked really good. The last test will be an important one and hopefully it'll be back this week. Shooter's done his thing and we're just waiting on word from that doctor. Tomorrow....whoa Nelly....tomorrow I go in for an outpatient procedure. It's an HSG test I believe. Anyway, they shoot dye up there and then xray you to make sure all the plumbing is working like it should. I'm trying to make this family friendly and not so graphic....hahaha. Anyway, as best I can tell, I'll be laid up tomorrow in bed, and watching lovely daytime TV (Maury (Who's The Daddy of my 5 kids? and Cheaters!!!!) ...when I'm not popping Tylenol PMs and sleeping. I'm holding out hope I'll be feeling well enough to go to work on Wednesday, but bets are that I'll be working from home.


Basically we should know by end of week where we stand and if we have to do more invasive infertility treatments. I'm kinda hoping we don't....but I'm willing to do whatever we need to. I just draw the line at the shots and stuff...no thanks!!! I'm also not so willing to do the Clomid route...that is how Kate of Jon & Kate Plus 8 got her 6!!! Well, that plus IUI. No thank you.

Well, that's what's been up with me and Shooter....hopefully we'll be adding to the brood and I'll have great news to share before too awfully long.

Later lovelies!

How very stressfull...good luck today, and I hope for the best.

oh did they tell you to drink lots of water today after the procedure? I'm not sure which contrast medium they're using but it's flushed through kidneys and the water will help

(oh sorry nurse in training I felt compelled...)

Well it's totally up to you and your husband, but I tried clomid and did shots. The shots are what worked for me....And only one baby. They usually moniter you with u/s and can see if you are producing multiple eggs.... that wasn't my case. There are lots of options depending on what your specific situation is!!!

I wish you lots of baby luck!!!
