IUI 6.1

This morning I decided to get pregnant!  That's right biology...BRING IT!

I did it folks....I FINISHED my injections!  you take that needles!

Today was the first of our sixth round of our IUI's.  Tomorrow is the second.


The best part...I don't have to wake up early at all this weekend for an appt!

Dr. Meteorologist was the one who did the IUI this morning.  He was so cute.  He loves to talk....but I couldn't understand much of what he was saying.  This is what I did hear:

"Let's make this heat wave a memorable one"
"I'm ready to send the soldiers in"
"Stay hydrated"

Totally funny.  I was trying so hard not to laugh.  I really love so many of those doctors...Oh there are two new ones I need to tell you about: Dr. Martha Stewart and Dr. Noob!

Dr. Martha Stewart did two of my ultrasounds..during the holiday weekend.  She is very very thorough!

Dr. Noob...oh boy....He did our ultrasound yesterday.  He is the new doctor to the practice and HAS to be straight out of med school!  He has NO idea what he was doing (there was another doctor in there with him to help him)!!!  I'll spare you all the details...it was uncomfortable and awkward.  Noob!

So this morning I noticed a couple walk in.  They looked like they were floating on air.  In their faces you saw excitement.  She had her paperwork with her.  I was SURE this was their consult appointment.  They looked all like this:

Confident, Happy, Hopeful.....(and not in a crazy psychotic way like these two above).  I marveled at this couple.  My husband and I were this couple....one year ago.

A year changes a lot when you are doing treatments for infertility....No longer are we that confident, happy, hopeful couple that first walked into that office.  As a matter of fact....I think we look more like this now:

Disheveled, Tired, Worn Out (but not drunk and certainly not arrested....and I would LOVE to promise you that my hair doesn't look like that sometimes....but seriously...it might!!  I CAN promise you that I WOULD NEVER let my husband wear that shirt....ever).


So here we go...entering the two week wait.  Neuroticism in the house!

Oh my goodness, I so love you girl and the way you can make humor out of all of this. I admire that about you and also your strength to keep pushing through.

As I tell you, my fingers, toes, EVERYTHING are crossed for you.

*hugs*

Thank you for such a light-hearted post! The pictures cracked me up! :)

It is so true about couples just starting out have a certain sparkle in their eyes and are just so hopeful...and then us Iffers are just beaten down. I am so glad to hear how optimistic you are about this cycle! I love how your doctor told you he was ready for the soldiers to enter! It is nice when the doctors can help make you feel not so uncomfortable.

I am also in my 2 week wait...here's to hoping we have a couple of BFP's soon! :)
