My journey through infertility

Holiday weekend needs to get here

  I dread summers at work.  The weather is beautiful, but I'm stuck in my little cubicle with no work to do. I should have gone into teaching like I originally planned.  I think I've already gained 5 pounds from boredom eating.  Someone needs to come to my office and entertain me.

I am really excited for this weekend, it will be our first bbq of the year.  Of course the weather reports are calling for rain, but we always find  a way to have fun anyways.  The real highlight of my weekend though will be Monday.  I have absolutely nothing planned.  I can't wait to just open up the house and be a lazy bum.

Those of you who are reading, what are you plans for the weekend?  Anything epic planned?

IUI #3 was a fail

I had spotting starting at 10 days past IUI, but my RE doesn't seem to be concerned, so he wants to do another round of injects with IUI.   We are going to take a month or two off to get the bills paid from the last round so I'm looking at June or July for IUI #4.   I am also going to start being more aggressive in my savings as I'm losing hope that IUI will work.  If my husband's insurance company is reading, I'd really really really appreciate IVF coverage.  I'll pay more per month even!

Getting the heck out of town!

I am heading up north for a few days.  So excited to just relax.  I loaded a few more books on my Nook so I'll have tons of reading material.    I have packed a few HPTs, but with the spotting I am having I doubt I will use them.    I hope you all have a great weekend!

Have I mentioned lately that I hate Progesterone?

My eyes are so incredibly heavy right now I don't know how I am going to be able to drive home.  I feel like I need to go get a hotel room and take a nap first.   

I think my trigger shot is finally out of my system, so I'm hoping the line will start making it's reappearance soon.

First round of injects is done

I got the call to trigger Friday afternoon.  I had 2 mature follicles for sure, and 1 that was real close to mature.  IUI's were on Saturday and Sunday morning.   The RE said my lining looked great and my husband gave a good sample, so now all that is left is to hope we get a little luck to help us out.   I start progesterone tomorrow morning, so the 2 week long nap starts tomorrow.
