CD 13: Waiting



It is hard to believe I am in the TWW. This is the FIRST cycle that we have made it this far since we started this journey in January.

On Wednesday after dinner I gave myself the Ovidrel injection to trigger my super swollen ovaries to ovulate. Thursday afternoon Mr. Husband went to the clinic to, ahem, make a deposit. At 2:30 I arrived and was whisked back to be inseminated. Dr. Hope was super gentle and I didn’t even feel the tube in my uterus. Mr. Husband squeezed my hand and looked into my eyes.

“Isn’t this romantic?” I asked. Mr. Husband and Dr. Hope cracked up. It’s always good to maintain a sense of humor during procedures like these! I rested for a little while and then we came home to rest some more.

Friday morning we repeated the procedure except this time my IUI was at 10:30 a.m. After this Dr. Hope hooked me up with two weeks of Crinone samples (huge help as that stuff is expensive) and then sent to acupuncture for a little relaxation session. Kathleen, my acupuncturist helped my uterus and mind relax so I could focus all my energy on providing a warm, snuggly, happy womb for our baby.

Since then I have been taking-it-easy. I have done some sewing, cooked a yummy breakfast and taken several walks. I intend to spend the rest of my weekend doing much of the same as my body recovers from these fiercely swollen ovaries. On August 19 I go back to Dr. Hope’s clinic to have a blood test done and find out if we were successful. Two weeks have never seemed so far away! Perhaps I need a paper chain to count down the days? 🙂

    Congrats! Crossing all appendages for you! I would tell you to “just relax” through these next two weeks, but that’s completely useless and annoying. So I wish you minimal insanity. So far, it seems like you’re on a good track toward that. 🙂
