We made the trip to Canton yesterday for my HSG and I have to admit I was a little nervous. The one I had in March somewhat prepared me for it, which helped, but then I also knew what I was getting myself into. We showed up early and The Moonster came over from his office right away–no waiting!
This time was SO much easier! It was over in about 30 seconds and I had very little cramping. There was no turning, no moving around–nothing! I just stayed still and it was all over! My tubes are clear as can be–Yay! I also found out my uterus tilts forward, not back as Dr. P told me. In the scheme of things, it doesn’t really matter which way it tilts, but I was intrigued.
Big Daddy said it probably went much smoother because The Moonster is the size of an Oompa Loompa and he was at eye level. Hardy har har. On a serious note–he does these all the time and practice makes perfect–big points for me!
We go back in a week for a follow up appointment. All my blood work is normal. I told The Moonster I had copies of it all because I didn’t want to wait until my appointment to find out what they were and he just laughed at me and said he could tell I was a nurse.
I’m starting to feel a bit more positive. I got pregnant right away after my HSG in March, so I’m hoping it happens again. I just have this feeling if it doesn’t happen this month, it will in a couple…hopefully.
Drama Queen has started asking for a sister a lot lately and it breaks my heart. I wish she had someone to play with. It makes us feel better that she gets the interaction at school and dance class, but we just wish she had a sibling to play with at home. Speaking of school, take a peek at her pictures!! I am so excited about them, it’s ridiculous! (Excuse my poor scanning abilities in advance)
It’s hard to pick, but I think this is my favorite:
I love this one too, because she’s giggly and has her little ankles crossed:
And then there’s this one, with her little smirk:
Bahahahaha, I'm plotting!
But do any of those compare to her class picture? I think not. She has the classic “What’s going on? Which way do I look?” puzzlement on her face. Big Daddy has dubbed it the Classic Henson Look:

We’re having our Thanksgiving today since I have to work tomorrow night. I’m sure I’ll get a few people with tryptophan overdoses, but hey–money is money and I’m there for 12 hours anyhow.
Last night, Big Daddy was helping to get things ready for today. The best money I’ve ever spent was on a Rada Ultimate Vegetable Peeler. Seriously. Paring knives + Big Daddy = 3/4 of the potato destroyed to smithereens. Ultimate Vegetable Peeler + Big Daddy = most of potato salvaged and mama stays happy!
Point of this story…let’s backtrack a couple of weeks. I’m peeling potatoes and throw the peels into the garbage. Big Daddy doesn’t understand why I chose to walk the strenuous 3 feet to the trash can to dispose of them, instead of shoving them down the garbage disposal. My reply was, “I don’t want to clog it up” and of course was just hysterical to Big Daddy. “That’s what they’re made for!” hahaha.
Yeah, let me hahaahhahahaha you now, Big Daddy. Because lo and behold, what happened?! The 10 pounds of potatoes he peeled? He insisted on shoving those peels down into the garbage disposal. And then the sink clogged up, which in turn Big Daddy had to take apart the pipes. Oh, glorious redemption!!! He got a tad irate when I busted out the camera to capture this moment in history, saying, “I don’t want my picture taken because you’ll post it on Facebook”. Pffftttt! I wouldn’t do that, baby, just my blog, bwahahaahaa!
This first pic his hand is blurry because he is in the process of flipping me off:
Work it, baby!
And last but not least, I tried to get a close up:
Even better than the Plumber pictures is pictures of Sissy helping make cookies, aka eating the dough. I honestly can’t say she gets that from her father–my body runs on cookies!
Kisses for Mama
We have tons to be thankful for and tons to keep our fingers crossed for…
