"Aggressive Plan" - Take 2

If at first your test is delayed, try again the next month.

Last month, scheduling conflicts between the hospital and my doctor made the HSG (hysterosalpingogram) impossible.

This month, it is officially scheduled for next Monday, March 17, at 11 a.m (EST).

Please pray that the test would go well and that the Lord will guide our emotions. I have seen horror stories online about awful HSG experiences, like "it was as painful as childbirth" and other such encouragement. If you had one of those experiences, please don't tell me. My fear doesn't need to be fed.

On the other hand, I have also heard, "I got pregnant right away after having an HSG." I have mentioned before that hope is dangerous because it can lead to disappointment. I don't want us to expect too much from the HSG and be disappointed again.

I obviously would like for the HSG to involve minimal pain; however, that would likely mean a continued lack of answers. The HSG is supposed to show and possibly clear blockage in the fallopian tubes. If there is blockage, the test is more painful. If there is blockage and it is removed, chances for conception increase. If there is no blockage, we would still have no idea what is wrong.

All of that to say, maybe we should all pray that there is a tiny, loose bit of blockage that will move easily (and painlessly?) and that the test would be all the help we need. And yes, I would like fries with that.
