I feel like I've been hit by a bus.

Like I said yesterday the HSG went well, a little painful but nothing horrific. But then last night at about 7pm, I almost passed out. Twice! It was awful.
Today I still don't feel 100% right. Not as bad as last night, but not quite right. I don't know if this is because of the HSG or something else. I did call the RE's office and the Dr. on call told me to drink a lot of water. I don't have bad cramps, and I am barely spotting so he isn't sure if its because of the HSG or not. Blech! I basically feel really weak and my head feels swimmy. Did anyone else experience dizziness after an HSG? Anyone?
At first I thought maybe I had low blood sugar, and so I totally ruined my 10 days of no carbs with a handful of tic tacs, a giant glass of sprite and a teaspoon of grape jelly. I just wanted to get sugar into my system to see if thats what the problem was. It did nothing. So I fucked up my diet for no reason. Crap. Oh well.
I hate feeling like this.
To be honest, I have had this happen to me before twice...just not this bad. I've gotten really dizzy, felt like I was going to pass out, but then it would go away and stay away. I've never ever had it last this long. So I'm a little worried. I dunno. I'm taking it easy for the most part. Just chillin, and drinking water. Which is driving me nuts because its really nice out and I'm home alone with the monkey. I was going to take him to visit grandma, but I don't really know that driving is such a great idea. Y'know?
So I have all this time to think....and I've been thinking about our next step. I have to say, its a little exciting! I mean Dr.C seemed quite receptive to my idea of moving right to an IUI with injectables. Which means(I think) that by this time next month I could very well be getting ready for my first IUI. Which in turn means....I might just end up pregnant! Eeeeeee! We go on Tuesday. I'll find out then what we will be doing next. I cant help feeling hopeful. I don't want to get to hopeful though because then it hurts more when I'm let down. But this is big. This is us moving forward. Woo Hoo!!
I feel shit-tas-tic and so I think I'll go plunk my ass on the couch. Boo.

Hope everyone has a great weekend!!

You're not taking any pain meds, are you? Or a ton of aspirin/ibuprofen/whatever on an empty stomach? That almost always brings on the fainty spells for me. I hope you snap out of it quick, though. No fun!

I'm sorry you're feeling so awful. I felt terribly the whole weekend after my SHG, but my symptoms weren't quite like yours, so I don't have much to offer in the way of suggestions, other than, take it easy and give yourself the weekend to do nothing (if you can afford to :) so you feel better by Monday. Hope the dizziness is gone soon. :)

And I am silently hoping for you babe.

You've really been hit hard. Rest up, and don't worry about the tic-tacs (aren't they just one calorie or something). But good that things look like they are going to start moving quickly.

Kandi-No ma'am I dont do pain meds unless I REALLY have too.

Sahw-Not toooo dizzy today. Well I wasnt until spending 5 hours on my feet covering part of a shift at work. Bah.

X- Thanks Love, I've got my eye on the prize! Right up my....yea yea yea! =P

Kelley- Hard to look after me with so many other people to look after. You know all about that dont ya babe?!

WFI- Boy have I! Stupid tic tacs. Really the killer was the NON diet soda. But I was freakin out! Oh well.
