I'm all clear. That was a pretty sucky test, but thankfully it was very short - I think the whole thing took about 10-15 minutes. The cool part was that I got to watch it all on the TV above my head. In any case, it was called a (get ready for this) hystersalpingogram. Whew. That's way too big a word.

In any case, as I said, it involved injecting dye and then looking on the live x-ray television to make sure nothing was blocked or scarred or twisted. It was all clear. The good part is that there's nothing that should be in the way. The bad news is that we can't really explain the ectopic pregnancy, so it could happen again. But I guess that's the chance we have to take.

And so, I'm starting on blood thinners (just baby asprin and some extra folic acids and whatnot) and we have the all clear to start trying again next month. As soon as I would get a positive pregnancy test, we would go on injections and would be very closely monitored, but the doctor says that with all the results of everything, I'm not as high risk as we previously believed. She thinks that my risks would be only slightly higher than a "normal" pregnancy - so that's really good news.

Here's hoping we've found the problem and that we can now turn things around. Thank you for all your kind thoughts and prayers - it's been very helpful and always makes me smile.
