I'll take the pancakes please.

In Jr High we had the talk, ya know the one where the put all the girls in one room and the boys in another? 
They sat all us girls down in front of a tv and popped in a video....great skill on their part by the way!

No you may be wondering how pancakes tie into all this, well you'll get it soon.

So this video is about girls on a camping a back yard. Low and behold on of the girls starts her period. The mom takes over and tries to explain the whole thing to the girls the next morning. 
With pancakes.
She sits them all down and they watch her make pancakes while she explains how a woman's body works. 
When she's done the pancakes look like a happy perfect uterus.

I didn't eat pancakes for years after that. I was scarred. French toast it was for me. (and I'm sure about 90% of the rest of the girls in my class and I'm positive that if you asked any one of us we could still give you a play by play of that prove my point I would like you all to know that the tent was blue.)

Why you ask am I bringing up the pancake video that refuses to ever leave my memory? After the HSG on Friday I keep thinking about those their perfect form. No tilting to the left. 
I bet those pancakes would have cute little silver dollar pancakes by now (please tell me you know what I'm talking about? Silver dollar=baby pancakes) hey you never know they could have cute little blueberry and strawberry silver dollar twins. 
Anyways I'm getting off topic here.
 My point is that I'm ready for the pancakes now (don't worry I can eat the pancakes now, no permanent damage I guess). The perfect pancakes that don't tilt way left and to the back, the one shaped like a perfect uterus that holds perfect little pancakes.

OK now I have to have pancakes for dinner.

HSG: A.K.A painful test from HELL

My ute hate me.
Want to know how I know???
I made it go through an HSG...
I know what you are thinking, Kat it takes like 5min to do that thing, and yes it causes cramping, but how is this causing the ute to hate you?
Well when your cervix doesn't want to cooperate with the whole procedure, and it takes a whopping 30+ min to do a 5min makes your ute angry.
It really makes it reallllllllllllly angry when the radiologist has to resort to jamming a needle into it 4 times then grab it with a clamp and pull it on out there to then jam a long tube up there, but oh wait that's not all...add in a balloon and some dye and you get yourself a big old angry ute.

so i made myself a mimosa and a bag of rolos (ya know...breakfast of champions!)  and I'm in my most comfy yoga pants and tshirt, and best of all....Buffy the Vampire Slayer!

Good news though, I have no blockages! BUT the uterus does tip to the left, a lot.  But that can be little to no problem, or it could be the reason it's taken so long. Guess we'll find out when Dr. Girlfriend calls.

The fear of the HSG

I get to have an HSG tomorrow.
I'm both looking forward to it and scared of it.
My momma took off to drive me and spend the day with me, I'm so glad she's going to be there. Sometimes a girl just needs her momma.
I'm looking forward to it because this could tell us why we haven't gotten knocked up yet, but that scares at the same time.
What if they tell me I can never have a baby? I think I would mentally break down.

I also have no clue what to expect from this.
What will the rest of the day be like? How am I going to feel? Should I plan on not doing anything for the rest of the day?
How long does it take for all that dye to come out? (makes me want to wear black, an industrial size pad and put a puppy pad on the couch before I sit down.)

I love Dr. Girlfriend, but she's not that good at letting you know what's going on.
She doesn't give info out without you asking first, but the thing is who knows what to ask?
Guess I'll just have to ask my best friend Google.

Wordless Wednesday: under the weather

This single digit weather is going to be the death of me!
My ears, throat and stomach hurt...and my nose is on constant drip and it's draining down my throat too so I'm hacking like a smoker too.
