And now

the wait.

We went out early, got the deed done. I must say, it was interesting to drive down the highway with a cup of my husband's sperm shoved in my bra. But, had to keep it warm... or maybe, I just felt it couldn't hurt. His numbers were "excellent", per the doctor. I believe the stats were like 79 million swimmers with 65% motility...

At least one of us has working parts.

The IUI was pretty painless, just like a pap.
Except for the mild cramping afterward- that was annoying.

Afterward I had my husband stop at the dollar tree where I purchased several cheap home pregnancy tests, which I will use to test out the trigger shot... I may be a little O.C.D. But, you know, testing it out is one of the few things I have control over.

At this point, pretty much everything is out of my hands. I have some old fashioned baby making to tackle, but other than that... it really is out of my hands. Thank goodness- I finally get to relax.

The cashier probably thinks I was a nutjob because of how many I bought, ha ha ha.

And now, since there were far more witty things to say... and they just aren't forming into coherent thoughts, probably due to sleep deprivation... I am going to take a nice Saturday afternoon nap.

Luckily, IUI is pretty easy physically. It's almost worse on the guy to make The Hand-Off. :)

Best wishes!

I totally get testing the trigger :) If I can just *do something*, it helps keep me sane.

Hoping you get lots and lots of positives. . . even after the trigger's long gone.

I'm so sorry, I know what it is to go from such high hopes with great follies at the beginning of the cycle to not much hope at the end. It's a bummer. Makes the 2WW that much harder. Keepin' ya'll in my thoughts and sending lots of good vibes your way!
