Today was the day! I went in for a SSG, which is basically a sonogram with saline in you uterus. My palms were sweating, my heart was racing, I was totally anxious for the procedure. Turns out, the doctor was amazing and walked me through each step with ease. The good news is that it was easy and really not painful at all. It is weird to have a sonogram of your uterus and not see a baby in there, but I was hopeful that would change very soon. After a thorough investigation of my Uterus and both ovaries, I was told I passed. I do have a cyst they are watching on my left ovary, but once we clear that up, we can move forward with IVF. You know that feeling you get as you get up early for a day at Disneyland, or Christmas Eve with all the anticipation of things to come? This is how I feel, I am not sure I can really sum it up any other way than in this manner. My stomach is constantly in knots with anticipation, happiness and excitement; let’s get this “baby” going!
Billy and I have decided to not tell the family until we are pregnant. We want to surprise everyone with the news all at once and just sit back and enjoy the outcome. There will be worry, excitement, tears and joy, but overall I know the family is supportive and will join us in this adventure.
