Angela I know this has been an extremely tough road for you and I'm praying you and Steven have success in bringing another child into your family. You're such a great mom and a wonderful friend to us Blossom Mommies.
Wishing you the best of luck my dear!!
I think talking on here and on the March board, and to Steven, my cousin, my best friend, and my Mom actually does help a lot. So I'm very grateful I have those outlets.
I just got back from my playgroup's monthly mom's night out. It was fun- a couple of my close girlfriends and I got fried pickles as an appetizer, and they were actually quite delicious. I was so surprised.
Steven gave me my shot. The initial injection hurt. Then it really itched underneath my skin. I didn't watch him do it, but he finished and then I looked at him, and he said "now which one of us is going to throw up?" I said, "Not me!" and he said, "Well, you didn't watch it!"
So I kissed him and that was that. It wasn't too bad the anticipation leading up to it was the worst.
I was just browsing and came across your journal. We have very simliar stories. I read your intro and felt like I was reading my own. I'm going to PM you if that's okay.
Lots of luck to you and I hope you get a pos OPK soon!
I have to say, it was really strange to have a positive pregnancy test this morning after a year of not seeing anything, except for evaporation lines. Too bad it was just the trigger shot! LOL.
[Quote]"Anyway, no positive on the OPK yet, but my cervix is high, soft and open and I've got EWCM (eggwhite CM, for my cousin Jennifer who may not know the abbreviations . I'm anxious to see what my follies are doing...and how many look like they might drop eggs. " [End Quote]
Yes, thank you for the acronym help! I'm so confused, but following along...
I had my IUI today! It was really easy....felt just like a papsmear. Steven's sperm count was through the roof and his motility was 70% pre-wash and 75% post-wash- they like to see 50%. So hopefully this will work. We'll do a few more if it doesn't before we decide what to do. I'm thinking that the doctors were confident that it will work at some point.
Oh, and all I paid today was $430. Of course, that doesn't include ultrasound monitoring and meds, but that amount is much more manageable than the $15000 price tag of IVF.
So the waiting game begins...
Sounds like things went really well today! I can't wait to stalk you through your 2ww. Come on swimmers, get that egg!!
