I know in the grand scheme of things 3 days over is nothing but i...

TTC number 2

I'm a planner so had this lovely idea our kids would have an X age gap but so far number two is proving a lot harder to conceive. First baby we were lucky enough to fall pregnant first time round. Feeling really down and disheartened 😔

CD 1 Next Step: HSG

Sadly I got my period today, I really thought this time was going to be it but I guess not. The next course of action my doc wants to do is an hsg, has anyone had one done and can kinda ease my mind about it. Trying really hard not to freak out about it and be hopeful.
