Hysteroscopy/biopsy, no cycle in sight.

I had a follow up with Dr. P today. They did a version of HSG without the dye.. I can’t remember what it’s called- but they put a balloon into your uterus and check it out on the ultra sound. My uterus wasn’t smooth- but kinda weird and bumpy. So they’re going to do a hysteroscopy and a biopsy at the same time to make sure nothing is infected, all the tissue from my miscarriage is gone, and there are no polyps. We didn’t end up talking next steps and are saving it for after the hysteroscopy. One of my blood tests came back faintly positive for blood clotting but my Dr said it’s one point past positive and she doesn’t think it’s relevant, so we’ll be re testing for that. Adam has to re-up on all his blood tests/semen analysis. They haven’t scheduled the hysteroscopy/biopsy yet so who knows when we can cycle again.

I’m disheartened but, oh well. We trudge on.

New (exciting) insurance

So my current health insurance is being discontinued. After fighting through the muck of my new options and my husband’s new options- and people who wouldn’t call me back, gave me misinformation, and just generally weren’t helpful- I picked a new health insurance! When I called the rep and asked her about infertility/IVF services, she said they were covered in full. I asked her how many cycles. She said there are no cycle limits- they are unlimited! I didn’t believe her- another insurance company rep I spoke with earlier had said the same thing and I called again to double check- she was wrong. So she took my number so she could investigate the matter further and called me back and left me a voicemail- which I am saving!- saying her manager said there is no dollar amount cap to IVF services, and no lifetime cycle limit either. CRAZY! I’m hoping it’s real life. I chose that insurance and that kicks in in 2017. My sister-in-law runs a daycare and one of her mom’s has unlimited and I never thought I’d find one!

I have to have baseline testing again – it’s a yearly thing I guess!- and I scheduled a Sono-HSG the same day my follow up with Dr. P. It’s different than the HSG test which I had last time. My period started on it’s own accord which is rare for me- and they’re getting me on BC and I have my day 3 scan tomorrow. I forgot how brutal my periods are. Woof! I’m glad this is happening though so I don’t have to wait even more time. I can’t believe I’m about to start the whole process over again. It still feels murky because I haven’t had my F/U after our miscarriage yet. We’ll see…

Follow up pushed back. Thanks Quest.

I’m supposed to have my F/U with Dr. Plante tomorrow, but the Quest where I got my recurrent pregnancy loss panel done messed up and my blood work was never sent out. Sigh. I just had it redrawn and I have a new F/U scheduled for 11/29. The lady at Quest got mad at me when I brought up the first blood draw and said my fertility center was just saying things because they have to. She never apologized. She said that they received paperwork after I had my blood draw. Okay.. so you just sat on it and did nothing?

I trust my fertility center a lot more than I trust her!

The waiting continues as always.
