Someone once said….if you keep looking for trouble you are going to find trouble.

Whoever said that is an asshole but true.

So yesterday must have been my 1000th hysteroscopy. I told him that there is no way I will stay awake (like a certain doctor once did to me – hell, I was awake for a d&c with just a little valium and that was not right).

This time the uterus was fine BUT the doctor asked, “so did anyone mention that your uterus has a sort of cliff or a bulge to it”. What? A bulge. So it was explained as more of a septum. After all these tests and laps and hysteroscopies (which isn’t even a word so says my spell check). After all of that. I’m talking 300K.

300K and now I get this.

The good doctor explained that it probably wouldn’t impede any implantation but that it probably was the reason for my preterm labor. He told me I could probably hold twins but not triplets.

Funny. I just want to hold anything.

So I’m in a funny spot, doing the buildup of my lining to see how it will grow. Using the vivelle dots (or strips as I would rather call them) and seeing where all of this goes. I want to put the embryos back in by early October. It is time.

I’m so scared it won’t work and so scared that it will and I’ll lose them. Why can’t I just get pregnant and, well, be like everyone else? It is still a mystery but I’m piecing it together. The completely crazy chromosomal disasters that are most of my embryos take two to tango. I can’t blame that on just me and I am still making normal eggs at age 41 so that is good. The fact that I have two normals on ice is even better but typically they only work with women with a normal uterus. Do I have a normal uterus? I’m not sure anymore.

I do have normal, open fallopian tubes. How nice.

  1. Hmm at least you have normal fallopian tubes? Sorry I know that is of NO help or consolation but if my 11 year ttc journey has taught me anything it’s to try and see the positive.

    Just when you think infertility has stopped giving, it gives a little more eh?


  2. Hi. Just found your blog through ICLW. I’m also fighting secondary infertility and have had plenty of testing done and sometimes different people tell me different things (uterus tips back, tips forward, etc). So if no one’s mentioned this “bulge” before maybe it’s not a big worry. You may hear something entirely different from a different person on a different day. Sometimes I wonder if any doctor has any idea what the hell he’s talking about. The lack of clarity is all just part of the fun of infertility, I guess. Best wishes to you!

  3. Here from ICLW. I often wonder why I can’t just get pregnant and be like everybody else, too – or like those b!tches on “I didn’t know I was pregnant” who bypass all the stress and anxiety of pregnancy.

    Good luck to you.

  4. Here from ICLW…I can’t believe after all this time, they’re just diagnosing a septum. I had one too and had the surgery to have it removed. Good luck with your cycle.

  5. Infertility can be such a hard journey when you are having to go through testing for the 4th, 5th or 100th time!

    Best of luck on your FET in October!! I hope they are your sticky little beans!

    Happy ICLW #97

  6. Things are never easy as they should be.

    Having a baby should be as easy as it gets. But- for some it’s just plain hard. Sucky life.

    Best of luck to you!
