No, we've elected and been encouraged to do a eSET (elective single embryo transfer) because of our success last time and because I'm "young". I actually agree and mentioned it to my doctor first during our first consultation but I think doing one at a time is ideal. I looooove my twins but I wouldn't want to have twins again. It was so so hard in the beginning.

So I had my HSG and scratch today. I thought I had been through some of the worst procedures regarding IVF/FET and boy was I wrong. For some reason this HSG hurt so bad! I was crying.

The beginning wasn't horrible but once my doctor tried to put the camera in, it was terrible. Torture is the only word I can use to describe the pain I felt. There were 2 problems, 1) the camera they have at this office isn't pliable 2) the way my cavity is she had to go straight up and then my cervix is sort of "around a corner" so she'd have to push down really hard on the camera probe to get it in through the cervix and obviously that is not comfortable.

After I started crying she asked me if I wanted to stop and try again another day (she was super supportive and nice) and I actually told her to try and dilate me more and then if that didn't work I'd have to reconsider if I wanted to do this procedure at all. Well, the dilation worked and while it was still painful it wasn't as bad as it had been originally. We got everything done. It was the worst 20 minutes of my life. Thankfully my husband was there and he was doing such a great job supporting/distracting me from what was going on.

Results: everything is perfect. I have no fibroids/polyps/scar tissue. She did a "tickle" ... the scratch and I barely felt that at all. She also did another practice transfer and that went smoothly ... so the transfer shouldn't be a problem at all. That was actually the 2nd practice transfer she did so that's good to know.

Oh and I had taken 1000mg and passed on the valium. In hindsight I wish I hadn't done that.

oh my goodness that sounds horrible...the things you do for your babies right? I am glad the process got a little more managable with the dilation. One step done!

I’m so sorry that it was so painful for you. Mine have always been very painful for me...to the point I get very anxious and can’t sleep the night before. It sucks all that we have to go through! But totally worth it.

So excited for you that your transfer is getting close!
