Haha that's what I said when she told me about the ultrasound. Basically this is what it is:
A standard ultrasound uses sound waves to image the shape of the uterus and other pelvic organs. A SIS is an ultrasound that goes one step further by using sterile water to distend the uterine cavity to obtain more accurate information about fibroids, polyps, or the lining of the uterus.
As for fibroids and polyps......
A fibroid is a benign tumor of muscular and fibrous tissues, typically developing in the wall of the uterus.
A polyp is a small growth, typically benign and with a stalk, protruding from a mucous membrane.
I think the ultrasound should be painless based on what I've read, but it sounds kind of weird so I wanted to be sure haha. :/
Hopefully I don't have either, but if I do, then I hope they're all that are causing my issues and can be removed....TTC #1

Hope she recovers quickly and everything is alright in utero.
Rollo please get better soon!!!
They scheduled my HSG as an appeasement for not getting me in for the third-day ultrasound. That is scheduled for NEXT month. I'm glad the HSG is so soon. I'm 99% sure I have at least one ovary adhesed to my kidney. I guess we'll find out tomorrow. Alzora, I totally called back my own fertility biller (who must have be summa cum laude of her class) as she was very helpful. I asked her what companies in the area were really good about paying for IVF and she said Microsoft (knew this one), The Times, and Amazon. DH is looking for a new job, and he said his current employer places a lot of people with AMZN so fingers crossed I guess. Let's see what happens tomorrow!!

Good luck with the tests poppy528 and nowakasia, I hope you get some answers.
Alzora, parvovirus causes fifth disease, no problem for an adult, but in utero it can cause severe anemia in the baby, we now have to wait 6 months to see if the baby survives the pregnancy and delivery. Once the baby is born it may need a bloodtransfusion, but other than that no complications are expected if the baby makes it that far.

The HSG was devastating. I'm completely devastated. I don't know how to tell my husband because I don't want to break his heart. There's no more baby week and no more trying. I should have done this years ago and skipped all the birth control and hope of conceiving.“And remember, my sentimental friend, that a heart is not judged by how much you love, but by how much you are loved by others.” L.
