Hysteroscopy Complete and Blogger Award

My hysteroscopy yesterday went well. I was in and out pretty quickly and had minimal pain. I have, however, had more then the "spotting" they indicated may happen. It was more like a light af yesterday but seems to be tapering off today. I've not yet heard what the results of this procedure were. I have a follow-up appointment at my REs office in two weeks and apparently that is when I will hear how the procedure went. Because I am a genetic mutant, I did overhear the nurses saying they removed some polyps. They assumed I would still be out but I processed the meds extremely quickly I guess. I heard comments from all 3 nurses that they've never had anyone so alert, ready to walk, etc immediately after surgery. Apparently I was the fastest discharge they've ever had. So, yeah--possibly polyp removal. It really wouldn't surprise me and would make me feel validated in pushing for this surgery. They can definitely cause implantation problems.

I also found out a bit more about financing for ivf/cgh this summer. The clinic is still unable to tell me exactly how much I will need to pay. As I mention earlier, I am the guinea pig for insurance coverage of cgh at my office. So, they aren't sure how to bill, how much to bill, etc. Earlier I was told that I would pay no more out of pocket then $2k for ivf/cgh. Who knows now...If it gets over the $5k range Mr. F and I are going to seriously discuss whether we want to go forward or go straight to ivf with donor egg. It's about $10k in the czech republic and the success rates are a lot higher then they are with my eggs.

Seven things About Myself
1) I own two dogs. We love them to pieces and treat them like babies. 
2) I have terrible eyesight. It's like -13 (to those of you in the know). 
3) I have two post bachelors degrees and am currently working on my third. Yes, I like school--a lot. 
4) Yesterday was the first time I've had surgery. (Besides removing my wisdom teeth which apparently doesn't count)
5) I like running, soccer, and surfing. 
6) I read, a lot. I tried to keep track this past year how many books I had read. I went about 9 months and had over 150 books on the list. 
7) I am a huge foodie--probably a lot of the reason I need to lose weight! Mr. F and I like to frequent restaurants that are considered "worlds best". I'm not a food snob though. I enjoy the simple things like hamburgers, pasta, etc as well.
