Procedure went well
Wed, 03-24-2010 - 4:12pm

Everything went well today with the D&C. I didn't realize how nervous I would be, but isn't the waiting always the hardest part? It was over fast and they gave me some "margarita drug mix" and said they were about to give me more to knock me out of which the last thing I remember saying was I hope that a cabana boy comes with it. WHAT??? Anyway, that's all I remember until DH was feeding me ice chips in recovery.

Slept for 3 hours today and now I am catching up on American idol and lost from last night.

So happy it is over and I am on a new path.

Thanks for all your support everyone.

I am glad to hear that your ordeal is over so you can begin to move forward.

I agree with everyone that said you are such a strong woman.

LOL at the cabana boy comment.

I watch both those shows as well. Lost was really good. At least we finally know why Richard doesn't age. I always thought that was creepy but

I'm so sorry you had to go through that.

But I love the cabana boy comment. I remember after my fibroid surgery waking up and then the nurse on the phone saying "yeah, she's been in here about 45min" and me saying "What? I just woke up" and her telling me "no, they just give you medicine that makes you forget (Versed)"....Who knows what I was rambling on about for 45 minutes and I work at the same hospital!


Me 33, DH 36. TTC since November 2007. Possible miscarriage in January of 2008 (too early for BFP, but all symptoms point to miscarriage). Normal SA in Feb 2009. HSG showed large (50% of uterus) fundal fibroid in Feb 2009. Hysteroscopically removed in March 2009. Tried to concieve naturally until August. Repeat HSG was normal. 6 cycles of Clomid alone...never had a BFP. IUI #1 = 01/13/10, BFN. IUI #2 = 3/11/10.
