What's more fun than a condom covered probe? Everything

I forgot about one really fun aspect of surrogacy. It's the long periods where you're just waiting, waiting, waiting mixed in with occasional frantic bursts of "OMG!!! Go and do this right now and hurry because everything depends on this and if you don't do it right now everything will be ruined and OMG why are you still sitting there! GO RIGHT NOW!"

We're in a bit of a manic phase right now. All of the sudden everything came together. Contracts were done, final insurance coverage was given and a tentative medication schedule was set with it all leading up to a transfer next month.

That is of course, if I can get a sonohysterogram scheduled in the next four minutes. For those of you who don't know, "sonohysterogram" is a fancy word for "having warm salt water injected into your uterus and then being poked at with a condom covered ultrasound probe for what feels like two hours while a doctor attempts to find your ovaries which, judging by how the you're being jabbed at with the ultrasound dildo, have migrated up to your ears". It's super fun and I was really hopeful that I was going to be able to skip the whole thing this time but no such luck.

It's all good though. The fact that I could be getting pregnant next month (fingers crossed!) is what's really important here. This is just a small bump in the road. A small condom covered bump. I can deal with it.

You're incredible. I don't know many people who would be willing to do this. Good luck!

It sounds horrific. Does it hurt at all?
