Thanks @McBecks I've also emailed my FS yesterday to ask why he has recommended a HSG instead of a HyCoSy. I am allergic to shellfish and even though it seems from my research they now say being allergic to shellfish doesn't necessarily mean you'll be allergic to iodine, there is still a risk. My shellfish allergy is severe - anaphylactic, rush as quick as you can to the hospital, carry an epipen with me, type of severe. From what I've read the HyCoSy can be done with a type of saline solution and doesn't need to use the iodine solution. If there's no actual reason for me to have the HSG instead of the HyCoSy I'll be annoyed that he didn't discuss it and give me the option!
I told him in my email about the fact that my thyroid levels have improved to the point they are below what they need to be now too. I haven't got a response from him yet. After speaking to my GP and finding out that the thyroid medication he gave me often causes a rapid heartbeat and palpitations - especially if your thyroid is in the normal range, I'm REALLY glad I didn't take it! I have an irregular heartbeat and suffer regular palpitations. All things that were on my patient form..
Sigh. I find I'm the type of person who nods along to whatever the doctor is saying at the time, then goes away, thinks about it and does some research - then comes back with the questions. I think it's because I like to be completely informed if I'm going to question someone's advice.
Had a real "This is all too hard, I don't want to go through all this stuff alone while you're working away" breakdown at DH last night. He is amazing and says all the right things. He knows I'm scared and venting and always offers to come back and work close to home, but my sensible brain knows it's not financially viable for us to do that while we're doing this. He eventually took me outside for some 'pet therapy' and I cuddled some our our ducks against their will. Hearing myself say "Stop struggling and let me love you!" cheered me up no end

Good news McBecks hope we have some good results with menivit too, DH has been on it about a month I recon.
HillDweller you crack me up!!! Those poor ducks, I'm a bit like that with our cat, she just doesn't love me as much as DH no matter how much I try and make her!!
I'm like you HD I like to know what's what with medical stuff (maybe not to the same degree as you) but I feel drs should explain more to us, it may not be our field of expertise but it's our bodies and our health!!

Hope the bloating is a good sign of a sticky baby @Shrillian! 5 days will fly by!
Yep @HillDweller I'll test on Sun if no AF. Whilst the wait is killing me, I so hate seeing just one line show up so I'd rather wait as long as I can. I'll be 13/14dpo by then so am hoping that's long enough for a good line if there is one!
