I've mostly been lurking the last couple of weeks, trying to put TTC near the back of my mind. Key word there was trying, because I never really stop thinking about it. I kind of freaked out a bit after learning that my doctor now considers me 'high risk' for future pregnancies and referred me to the local fertility clinic.
While I was waiting to hear back from the RE, I had my ultrasound to make sure that I had passed all of the products of conception, not that I expected there would be much at just over 4 weeks. MY OB is in the same building as the u/s clinic, so they usually just give me the report to take down to the OB (most patients have their OB appt right after the u/s). Since I didn't think I really needed an appointment, I didn't book one, but the office was still closed when I went to drop off the report. Like always, I read it on my way downstairs. Uterus looked 'good' as far as size, shape and position, ovaries looked good, lining was good. In the 'other' section, however, the tech noted a 'fundal septum'. Strangely, this wasn't the first time I'd heard of this, so my heart sank a little. She didn't provide any measurements or say whether it was partial or complete.. but I'm assuming partial because you'd think that with all of the ultrasounds I've had in the past 9 months, somebody would have noticed a complete septum. No idea what I'm talking about? It's a uterine abnormality. I really don't know how to describe it, someone else might be able to do it better, but a septum is also the part of your nose that separates your nose into two nostrils. A uterine septum can be pretty drastic. A complete septum can divide your uterus/cervix in two.
Anyways, this has been on my mind all week now, so I was dying to get a call from the RE. Thankfully they called on Monday, and I'm set up for my first appointment next Monday, the 6th. I'm looking forward to discussing my history with a doctor who doesn't totally disregard the fact that I've been proactive enough to chart my cycles. I hope that she sees it as saving her a step in my treatment (if treatment is necessary). I'm looking forward to hearing what she has to say as well. I want to get pregnant so badly, so I also want to be the healthiest I can be, both physically and mentally and this whole TTC/Loss process has been draining me!!
Hopefully I'll be back this time next week to fill you in on what I've learned!
