DH and I had three different blood tests done earlier this week.

The blood clotting tests have already come back normal.

Now we're waiting for the results of the genetic bloodwork. It should be back late next week. I kind of hope they find something to explain my three miscarriages, but I really, really, really hope it's nothing and we can chalk it up to bad luck.

I'm also going to have a test done where they put fluid into my uterus to see if it's misshapen. Has anyone had that done? What's it all about?

I seem to be ovulating today, 17 days after my miscarriage. Another month and we'll get to start trying again. Scary.

I had the HSG x-ray, is that what you're having? It wasn't really too bad. I took some ibuprofin before having it done and didn't get too crampy. I'm not sure how well it worked for me. It did tell that my uterus was not misshapen but it didn't show that I had a uterine septum and it's supposed to detect that. As a matter of fact that was what my problem was and most likely the reason for my m/c's.

I had one done yesterday. It was nothing. I didn't feel anything. It took a few minutes. No after effects at all. They told me the results right there.

Good Luck

I had a SHG (sonohystogram) last month. My RE did it to look at the shape of my uterus and see if my tubes were clear. My RE suggested that I take 2 Advil 2 hours before the appointment and to take 2 tylenol 30 minutes before. It wasn't too bad. They used a cathater to insert saline into my uterus and used an u/s to check where the saline went and then it was done. They also inserted a little balloon into my uterus to check the shape of my uterus by inflating it and checking the shape.

It was like an ackward pap test. They found scar tissue from my D&C in May and the SHG cleared it away so it was well worth it. I had some spotting for a day and that was it.

Good luck.

I had an HSG as well. For me it was definitely more than nothing...it actualy hurt quite intensely (which is odd because they said my tubes were clear, etc). Anway - it was quick & I took the IBU before the procedure as recommended. I was crampy for the remainder of the day & took the afternoon off just in case I would be. I think I may be a bit more sensitive than most though - because just getting a pelvic tends to make me a littel crampy for the rest of the day & occassionally it makes me spot... As much as I say it did hurt though - it was WELL worth it & I wouldn't be freaked out if they said I ahd to do it again - it wasn't fun - but it wasn't the worst thing I've had to do either.
