and then the tears fell…

IUI #2 is finished. I cried almost the entire time on the table.

It hurt. And I’m not completely convinced he got the catheter all the way in.

The doctor decided to take a good look at my cervix on u/s – the “opening” basically just disappears for a bit to nothing.

He said he thought about my options last night (great) and was concerned that if we did IVF at some point that the embryo transfer would be really difficult.

Maybe this will work? Please?

  1. And my tears are falling, too…

    I wish you weren’t suffering. I wish your cervix had a better opening. I wish I could find the right words to say.

    Is making a surgical incision to open your cervix not an option?

    I hope this is the end of your IF journey Mrs. Hope. You’ve been through enough.

  2. Oh, Mrs. Hope. I am sending a big internet hug and some kleenex. I will keep my fingers crossed and say some prayers that this one is the answer….

  3. Oh I’m so sorry for what you’re going through. Hoping this will be it for you. Thinking of you. {{Hugs}}

  4. I’m sorry it’s so painful. I know how much we all love those “I know this person who…” stories, but I know this person who had severe cervical stenosis to the point where one doctor said her only hope was gestational carrier. But what they ended up doing was IVF, but under sedation for both the ER and ET. I wonder if that is a viable option for you as well. That way they could manipulate the cervix however they needed to without hurting you.

  5. Yes, I’ve also heard that sedation for a transfer works really well. Hopefully you won’t need to do IVF at all.

  6. Also sending love and hope Mrs. Hope. Everything crossed for you.

  7. I am so sorry that you’re going through so much Mrs. Hope – so sorry.

    You’re in my thoughts.

  8. I’m sorry your IUI’s were so difficult. My dr. always has a little problem with my cervix and it isn’t very pleasant. I can imagine how painful it must be for you.

    But you done now and at least for the next two weeks there will be not dr. appointments or anything else.

    I hope this is it for you!

    ( I have my 2 IUI’
    s coming up in a couple of days.

    Yipppeee.

    Timea

  10. Yes: Please. Please, please, please, please. I want this for you badly- if for no other reason than not having to go through these painful procedures.

    But more than that, I want you to have that joy you deserve.
    Hold on.

    -D.

  11. Oh I wish this was easier. So long as one of those catheters made it in, that could be ok. If you do go to IVF, they’ll just need to practice carefully during the mock transfer.

    Hoping, however, that it won’t come to that.
