Said it was going to hurt a little bit. I am not scared of the shots. I am just ready to start.

It sounds like you are one hard working lady! Glad you got the shots. Are you shooting yourself?

What does a trial transfer mean and what does it entail? Also what is a sonohystrogram and what does it involve?

Sorry I am so ignorant
 


Hugs,
Erika

Erika - The trial transfer is a trial embryo transfer, they're just gonna check out Amanda's cervix and make sure that the catheter they use is the right sized one. It's not painful, just uncomfortable. And with the sonohystogram, they insert a catheter with a balloon into Amanda's cervix and fill her womb with water, and then look at it under ultrasound.

Amanda - It's all very exciting. Your sonohystogram probably won't hurt, it's just going to be uncomfortable. I've not had a SHG, but I've had a hysterosalpingogram (HSG), which is basically a very similar test, but with x-rays and contrast dye, instead of ultrasound and saline.

The worst bit is going to be having your feet in stirrups with your 'lady-bits' on show for about 40 minutes!! But get used to that!! When you start IVF you leave your dignity at the door!!!

Take some Tynelol/Paracetamol about 20 minutes before your appointment, it will really help hon!

I am so excited for you Amanda!!
