RE had confirmed with u/s that there was no hb, but wanted me to go to the hospital to confirm.
Went to radiology dept. Have connections there, so was squeezed in ASAP.
Was whipping my pants off for e/v u/s. And tech walked in. Me sans pants.
They don't do e/v u/s even for early preg loss, b/c they actually know what they're doing.
Even more embarrassing, though not for me, was that the quality of images was SO much better, using the same machine trans abdominal.
Believe it or not, a radiology tech can do better u/s than my RE.
But the embarrassing part, was just the pants, the rest was just par for the course in my ART journey.

I'm at a party....and a friend of mine wants to introduce me to her friend. So I turn around to meet this friend, only to discover that this friend is the DOCTOR who did all my vaginal ultrasounds and my IUI !!!
The dr. and I were both so shocked it was so obvious that we knew each other, people around us were all like "omg how do you two know each other!!"
SMALL FREAKIN WORLD!! I was so embarassed that I was red and laughing the entire night.

So i am a single female using donor sperm. But I am a progressive woman who has a friend with benefits.
I live in on city and he lives in another, which just happens to be the same city that I do my treatments in. Because I am single no one at the clinic had the chat with me about not having sex before treatments.
So I am in the city for a few nights and have a hotel room and well, we are not wasting that opportunity, so basically he is living at the hotel with me and we are enjoying each others company.
I go in to do my IUI and find out they can use any lube to put the speculum in. There is no mucus and i have seen alot of action down there in the last few days. I was in so much pain, as the nurse tries to do the IUI. To add insult to injury I have a weirdly placed cervix and she can't quite get the speculum placed properly. At point we had to stop so I could do some yoga breathing, to relax.
it wasn't funny then, but now it is.
Tough Times Never Last, but Tough People Do

At one of my IUI's the nurse handed me the vial of DH's sperm and asked me if it 'looked right'. I had no idea what she was asking me so I held it up to look at and said "ummm yes? They all look just like him."
It turned out she was asking me to confirm that the name on the side of the vial was right, but she handed it to me with the name facing away from me so I didn't even know there was a name on the vial. We were both really embarrassed!

During one of our pregnancies that eventually failed, I was doing a lot of urine tests. Instead of always going to the clinic I got a bunch of pee cups and would just drop them off at my local life labs office. I'm also a photographer and the same day went to drop off real film at a local shop for development. I reached into my coat, grabbed and handed something over to the developer. The look on his face as he refused to grab my bottle of pee said it all. I kept it together in the store but lost it once I left!
