Thanks for all the nice comments :) The procedure was a lot less physically painful than I had imagined. Still not comfortable, but the pain was much less than my HSG was! It was a very long and rough day. We were walking out to the car, I felt something in my underwear, and it was blood. That of course freaked me out. We went back, he examined me and did an ultrasound, and everything looked ok. The peri said he may have hit a blood vessel and that could be causing the bleeding. He gave me another day of bedrest - but I was going to do 2 days anyway.

So then, during the night I woke up and my pantyliner was soaked through. It was pink but looked like it was also mixed with fluid. So we called him and luckily he was at the hospital. He said it was probably fine, but to come in and he would do an ultrasound to make me feel better. So we went in to Triage and everyone was really nice. He did the ultrasound and everything looked great. He did give me a prescription for antibiotics just in case. That made me feel better. So now I feel like I am doing everything I can to make sure everything goes well.

Emotionally, this is really rough, I knew it would be. I'm glad I have a therapist appointment coming up.

Please continue to send your good positive thoughts. I think I won't be in the clear for 2 weeks. I have a follow up with the peri in 3 weeks (he will be out of town and he wanted to do the follow up) but I do have 2 appointments with my OB before that. I just hope everything goes well and nothing bad happens. I am thinking positive, so I'm hoping that will also help.

I'm glad it went well and that it is now in the past - the bleeding must have been scary. I'm glad your doctor was responsive and calming.

Take care - you are in my thoughts.

Sending you positive thoughts, lots of love and lots of prayers. Take Care! Sara

Hi - I was referred to your blog by fertilize me. I just found out that after transferring 2 embryos in IVF, I am pregnant with triplets! (One split into identical twins). Our RE strongly recommends reduction, and I was a bit surprised when on a lot of the boards I frequent people seemed to be trying to talk me out of it. It is so helpful to read about your experience. Best of luck to you and your babies!
