Testing Complete...maybe

This morning I may (or may not) have been to my last round of testing. I have done all the blood work...so much blood work that the vampire who draws my blood knows me by name and today I had an HSG Test. You can read about this test here . Basicly they shoot a colored dye in my body and watch it travel through my tubes and they take a look at my uterus. Everything looked good the Dr. said, my tubes are clear and my uterus..well, its a working uterus. There is no more testing she can do, maybe it was two bad eggs in a role, or maybe we will never know? The big question on my mind now is do I go to a specialist and get just one more opionon or do we try when we are ready to see what happens? Gosh, it is soo much to think about. We know we wont be going home to try today or anytime soon for that matter, but I want to be completely sure we have done everything in our power to make sure I am all ok. I am scared...scared to death to even try again. I think I will be calling a specialist today just to get a second opionon to ease my mind. Any suggestions?

I think you should go ahead and try and see what happens. I mean if they did all those tests and nothing showed up then you should be okay. Like I said previously with mine, they say it is actually more common than most ppl think for a person to have one or two miscarraiges before having a successful pregnancy. I know I had 2, miscarried at the same time frame and then got pregnant the 3rdtime and was successful. That is jut my opinion but go with your heart adn gut! I will be thinking of you though, I am always hopeful for ppl trying to have babies that really want them and know they will be great at it! I will say a prayer for you!

Kara so sorry that you and Nate are having to deal with all of this. Good luck to both of you start your family

I would say if Nathan's swimmers are swimmin and your eggs are fallling, give it one more chance before you go to a specialist. I trust Dr. Carns completely. I'm with April, keep trying- 3rd times a charm. I know how difficult this is for you, but hang in there!

I'm so sorry that I don't have any advice. At least your uterus is in good working condition. :) Thats good news!

I don't really have any suggestions, because I don't know a lot about it, and I won't pretend to. But do know that I am praying for the both of you ... don't give up :)

That's wonderful news!!!! I can understand how you would want more testing, just to make yourself feel better. But I can also see trying again and not testing further. I don't know what to tell you it seems. I wish I had all the answers, but I would just go with your gut instint. We tend to know what's best for us some how. Just take some time to think hard about it and go with what your heart tells you to do! God will help guide you the right way! And remember, I am always here for you! I love you!

That's a tough one, Kara. I don't know, if they didn't find anything, that's definitely a good thing. I know it can get tiring trying and getting no results. You get worn out and unmotivated (that sounds really bad, doesn't it?) I could see going to the specialist, at least you'll have a piece of mind. It could take a while trying as well, though. I would probably go to a specialist, just because I needed to go to one to find out what I needed to do for the next time. The specialist may find something the ordinary tests didn't, you never know. All I can say is that I will be praying for you and hoping that everything goes well!
