Well, Today I had a HSG(hysterosalpingogram). This is an x-ray of the uterus and fallopian tubes which allows visualization of the inside of the uterus and fallopian tubes. It will show any abnormalities or blockages - Which I am happy to report I " have no blockages and a pretty uterus". YAH ME, Two things are not completely crap!!! I am not completely broken. Although, after I received that joyeous news - i should have seen the bad news coming. So as you remember from my previous post about the The Institute of Vampyric Research ( http://fertilizeme.blogspot.com/2007/02/and-were-back-in-race.html) they took 15 tubes of blood and the results are in ... *drum roll please ...............I am a repeat spontaneous aborter. LOVELY, Not only am i over weight, but my body eats the fertilized eggs. Yes I know that sounds disturbing but that was one of the images I got in my head as he the Head of Vampyric Research was discussing my results. The other image is not pretty and i will not describe it. Ok back to the results -
I have 2 major things that are causing my miscarriage: 1- my autoimmune (it was a bunch of letters MTHLMF or something like that (as my Husband refers to it as wtflmao because he said it was my body laughing at us or taughting us - " Dare ya to bring in a fertilized egg .... DO , it heheheh DO IT"- yes my husband is just as nuts as I am). It basically causes me to reject and treat the fertilized egg as a virus, WEll isnt that Productive - I bet if it was the Flu - it would totally let Mr Flubug RIGHT IN but nooooo not a fertilized Egg. 2- Clotting Disorder- I have a higher amount of coagulation than most. Atleast #2 is easy to maintain - i just take an 81mg aspirin a day.
#1- Well, #1 is making me alittle uncomfortable - or that may be the HSG cramping ;). No serioulsy, With #1, I have to inject luvenox in my body as soon as i find out that I am pregnant - in hopes to deter Mr. WontplaybytherulesImmunesystem. Oh and call the DR. and then I will take Prednisone until like week 18 and then he will ween me off. A steroid. I'm just a tad freaked out .
..Don't get me wrong, I am very glad to know what is "wrong" with me and get a diagnosis. Im a lil worried about the getting pregnant and spontaneous aborting and having to take steroids. PHEW, thats a lot to digest in one day. Also - I am now a member of the Metformin Club - AKA the Liquid Bathroom Pill - and boy today I spent ALOT of time in the el bano. I wonder if that was from the Met or the HSG - maybe Both
