Open and ready for business!

I just got a call from my RE nurse – my tubes are both open and my uterus looks great! She said it was the only normal test result from that day. Although I didn't think anything was wrong (after the preliminary results of the HSG), I was very relieved to actually hear it.

And more good news: a positive OPK!

I've never received a positive result before. And I got it on day 15, which also has never happened before! Now if only my husband would get his behind home, we could get this show on the road.

The side effects from Letrozole have been less severe and not as long lasting as Clomid. Does anyone know if unusual hunger is a side effect?! I sure hope it is because I have been so hungry the past few weeks. I mean to the point of waking up in the middle of the night to my stomach growling. I am going to pretend it’s a side effect either way.

Thanks to Katie and Kristin for recommending prophylactic antibiotics in an effort not to get a UTI the day after he gets home. I didn’t realize that there was such a thing. My RE nurse is going to ask the doctor about it and get back to me today. I would like to get it today in case he surprises me and comes home early!

BTW, thanks for stopping by my blog. I'm not a Mountain Dew fan, but have siblings that practically live off it. Me, it's Cherry Coke and Cherry Vanilla Dr Pepper.

I wanted to say I'm so glad your husband is coming home soon. Infertility coupled with the military is its own beast!!! I know, we've been in 2 years now. J's 1st deployment should be Nov, but we've done separations for field training, survival school, etc. What branch are you guys? We're AF.

Anyway, just wanted to let you know I'd be reading your blog. I hope your husband can come home in time for this month to get a good shot - but I know you'll just be glad to have him! They say that the first 1-2 cycles after an HSG you're chances are increased (10-20%) to conceive.... Didn't happen with me, but we're unexplained.

Good luck!

I hope they get on the stick and get you those antibiotics! UTIs are so preventable, so no need to suffer needlessly!

AND A BIG FAT CONGRATULATIONS on the good results of your HSG! And I have also heard about the HSG increasing your chances for pregnancy. My own HSG moved my ovulation up a couple of days early and we got pregnant that very month. Here's hoping that the same happens for you!

Awesome news about the HSG! YAY for open tubes! And YAY for a positive OPK!

I hope you got some good BD in once hubby got home ;)
