Saline Sonogram

Today I went in for my Saline Sonogram where they insert a catheter into my uterus and inject saline solution to see the inside of my uterus and make sure there is no scar tissue, or tumors or anything unusual. I went by myself today to the appointment, and was told that Jason and my blood results came back great!! I am Hep B immune and all my blood work came back normal.

The saline sonogram was interesting. They inserted a catheter through my cervix and injected the saline and I could see my uterus expand on the monitor. It was really cool. I didnt even feel the catheter when it was inserted. It was over all a very pain free process.The only difference during the actual transfer is that the embryos will be in the saline next time.  The Dr said my Uterus was beautiful and looked text book. It was an odd compliment but I'll take what I can get. Mainly it made feel excited that I would be able to provide a nice plush warm place for Intended Father and Intended Mother's baby to grow healthy!!

The whole way home I kept thinking, "This is really happening!" I've now been psychologically and medically cleared for this process to continue. Its becoming a reality. I can only imagine the excitement that Intended Father and Intended Mother must be feeling now that they know that things are really picking up! I expect a call from my Lawyer this week or next sometime to go over the drafted contracts, and then once they are signed I begin my Estrogen pills etc.

I've begun thinking up fun ways to tell my IP's (Intended Parents) when I get pregnant. Pinterest is good for things like that. :)


  1. I'm just curious, can someone be a surrogate if they've had a previous miscarriage?

  2. Krista- Excellent question. I have had one miscarriage at 8 weeks and I am allowed to e a surrogate. It's a case by case basis. They fully examin all of your medical records from previous pregnancies and decide from that and your exam.
