The nurse who did it was really nice, and I appreciated that she explained exactly what we were looking at as she was doing it. She showed me my uterus, which she said looks perfect.

My right ovary had some cysts that she said is indicative of PCOS, but my left ovary looked fine and was the one with the egg forming. She said the egg is right size for this point in my cycle, and my lining was 7, I think she said, which she said is also good for this point in my cycle.

The next thing I have to do is a bunch of bloodwork, including CD 21 Progesterone draw, then the HSG, and then we meet with the RE again for a plan of action visit. I guess the RE will tell me more about PCOS, and if they need to do anything about that. The nurse said they sometimes put you on a no sugar and carbs diet for that, but she said the RE would go over all of that with us. Anyway, just thought I would share!

Thanks ladies! Yes, so far, so good! I am getting pretty excited to be taking all of these steps toward a plan! Even if that plan has to be IVF, DH and I are just glad to be moving forward!

Sounds just like my first RE appointment. She seems like a really great nurse you can trust which is so important when trying to conceive especially if there are small complications.
Good luck with your visits and treatment and i hope you get your BFP real soon.

Thank you! Yes, she was great! She is my RE's assistant, so she should be the one to be involved in all of our treatment.

I cling to my favorite nurse in my RE's office. I talk to her for most everything.

It sounds like you have a great doctors office. I remember starting out with MA and that hopeful feeling I had.

Ashley- Yeah, we'll see, I know there is a lot of bloodwork they have to do! I'm used to it though, I have Thyroid issues, so I get blood taken all the time.

missy123- Yes, so far I really like them!
