Now I still am unable to workout for a few more weeks, but my body needs to heal.
Good news! We can start trying again in August! I cannot believe that I will be holding my child by this time next year!!!!! I never thought I would hear those words.

It has been four days since my laparoscopy and hysteroscopy. The pain from the gas was gone yesterday. Now I am left with cramping from the catheter. It is starting to slowly come out. I can feel it. I am hoping it comes out on its own. I know once it does I will be more comfortable. And I might be able to sleep!

I have a slight case of endo. So slight that he doesn't have any concern about it and removed it. I also have a VERY enlarged septum. He put a cath in it to help drain it. He knows for a fact that this is one of the reasons my body has not allowed my pregnancies to mature. I will have the cath in until next Wednesday when I go into the office for my follow up.
I was very sore yesterday. It could be the gas build up, or just the results from the surgery. I am very thankful that he discovered this problem. I've always been told that my uterus "looks" funny. Now we know why. So this girl who has APS and an enlarged septum is told that she will have a baby in her arms by this time next year!
I sure hope he is right about that! Five years and five miscarriages under my belt should yield me some reward. I think having a living baby in my arms will do the trick! :)

I had an HSG done a few months ago. I was expecting it to be painful, as I googled and youtubed about the procedure, but I wasn't expecting it to feel like that. First off, the clamps he put in were too short, so he tried to shove them inside me. OWIE!!! I've never felt pain like that in my life. Not sure if it was really pain, or just plain uncomfortable. During the "wonderful" procedure we found that my tubes are clear (YAY), but my uterus is small and oddly shaped.
So I have a small uterus...........
Dr. G then wanted me to have an laparoscopy completed. I had my round of labs for that the last week of March. I am at school with my kids on our last day before spring break when I get a call that would change my life. "I have great news! You're pregnant!!!" My hcg level was low, but they figured it was just really early.
Being high risk, I get the pleasure of having several labs drawn and many prenatal appointments. With each set of labs, my hcg went up, but not by much. It doubled once....then went up a few points for the rest, where it eventually came to a stop and drop around 10 wks gestation. I was yet again having a miscarriage of my 5th, yes 5th pregnancy. The heparin and prometrium were not able to save this one.
I went through the miscarriage naturally and survived. Again. It is unfortunate that I know how to handle my grief through loss, because I have experienced so many.
This week, I called my RE and scheduled my HSG. I will have this procedure done on the 18th of June. He thinks that I could have endo (but I don't think I do) and he also wants to go check things out to get a better picture of my reproductive system.
After the HSG I am not sure what direction we will head. Will we go the natural route? Will we take all that medication? I guess it depends on the results.
