It feels like I've been really bust these last two days, but here's a quick update on what's going on. Saw a fertility specialist yesterday. He's not convinced that my right tube is entirely toast, but it's too soon to do the test to see that. In about two months, we'll do a dye test to see. If the tube is open, great. I can, theoretically, get pregnant, and will have a 15% chance of having another ectopic. If it's blocked, then it's IVF for us. Luckily, he says I'm a good IVF candidate.

The doctor also said he suspects that my miscarriage in January may be responsible for this mess. Either the dead babies floating around in my uterus for a month could have sparked an infection, or something that happened during the D&C could. Since the only thing that's changed in my reproductive world since I last had an embryo in my uterus was the miscarriage, he thinks it's probable that that's the bad guy.

Also, thank you a million times over to the wonderful women who've been reaching out to me about their own fertility issues. You all know who you are, and I am immeasurably grateful. Much as life can suck sometimes, it's amazing how kind people can be.
