God is Good......All the time.

After 2 years of trying to get pregnant I finally know why it hasn't happened. I had a test done on Friday that told us what was going on. I must warn you that this is a little graphic but it is what it is.... Apparently, my cervical mucus is killing my hubby's swimmers. Sounds bad but turns out this is a good thing. At least we know what the problem is now and it seems to be an easy fix. We will do an IUI in January. For those of you who don't know....IUI stands for Intrauterine Insemination. This will bypass the cervix. Hopefully, this will work and we will have a Baby Hughes within the next year. Please say a prayer for us. We have been waiting on this for soooo long.

And the results are in!!!

I had my HSG done on Tuesday and everything looked great!! My doctor said my uterus and fallopian tubes were textbook!!! Woohoo!!! My husband had his S/A done yesterday and we got the results back this morning. Let's just say when it comes to his count, he is definitely an over-achiever! haha His count and motility were both above-average! We are thrilled! While we still have a long way to go (well, I have to go through some more testing) we are so happy to get positive results from both of these tests. We were both very nervous. In the midst of all these tests and the years of pain and suffering, I have to take a minute to thank God for blessing me with my husband and, believe it or not, infertility. As I have said a billion times, infertility has been the hardest thing I have ever gone through. But.....it has brought my husband and I so much closer than I ever thought possible. We have a deeper love for each other, a better understanding of each other and deeper respect for each other. I heard a song the other day for the first time and absolutely loved it. Marriage is so hard at times and this song describes it so well. Thank you God for blessing my marriage and thank you Josh for being the most wonderful husband I could have ever asked for. I love you.

Hope you enjoy this song as much as I did.

Hoping for some answers....

Well, thanks to the good Lord up above, I got through the last couple of weeks and managed to hang on to what sanity I have left. The beginning of every cycle is the most horrific pain. You always think the next cycle will be easier to swallow but it never is. Hopefully one day that will change but I'm definitely not holding my breath.

The good news is I finally saw a new doctor and I am already feeling better about this whole process. I feel like I finally have some direction and we will finally get some answers as to what is causing our infertility. We have a lot of different tests scheduled for the next few weeks. I am going tomorrow to have an HSG. They will send some dye into my tubes and uterus to check for any blockages, fibroids, etc. I'm not looking forward to this because I have heard it is not very comfortable but at least I will finally get some answers. Some long awaited answers. We have a few other tests to schedule over the next few weeks. I will go back to my doctor in early January to discuss the results. Hopefully we will find out what the problem is and what we can do to fix it.
