OK so now I'm starting to worry. My medicine hasn't arrived yet. I called the pharmacy and she said it got held up yesterday due to the weather. She also said that the weather today was noted in her system as bad too, but I told her that the roads were perfectly clear and the temps were mild. Now bring me my medicine. I'm trying not to get impatient, but I need it by Tues morning.
No other TTC news. Just anxious for the weekend to begin. I've got some projects on the house, but no big plans besides that. I know the superbowl is Sunday, but I could care less. My mind is on other things.
I finally got my care package of needles and meds. How fun does that sound? I wasn't scared of the needles until now. Plus, dh was all for doing it for me and now he's freaked too. Just great. We've got to go to a shot education class on Tuesday which is the first day of the shots so I'm hoping they'll just do it for me. Then, a friend of mine who is a nurse will probably do the rest. I can't help it, I'm a wimp.
Tomorrow is the big day. It's my first adventure with stims. I've got to take my last dose of femara and then go to my shot class. I'm trying to relax, but my nerves are getting the best of me. My poor dh is taking the heat on this. I feel bad, but he's just about ready to drive me crazy. I'm sure I'll feel better tomorrow after the class. I just hate the unknown.
We pulled it off!! We did the class and I was a little nervous, but dh was a champ. I'm so proud of him. He's definitely the calm one of the couple. We did the first Gonal F shot last night and it was a breeze. No pain whatsoever. We've got 3 more days of that and then what I call the big daddy. I really hope that my dr will do that one on Saturday at our appt. As good as dh has been, I'm not sure how I feel about him and a 1 1/2 needle. There's a whole new level of trust developing. I'm glad he's being a good sport about this. I had my hesitations, but he's surprised me. Gotta get back to work. Sigh....
I had my u/s yesterday. I had a follice that was 23mm, but my endometrium lining wasn't quite there yet. Bummer. I was sent home and told to do another OPK this morning which I just did and..........I got a smiley face. Yeah!!!!! That means we do the IUI tomorrow morning. Now I'm off to motivate dh to do the HCG shot. Ouch
I'm officially artificially inseminated. Doesn't that just sound so romantic....not. It was a pretty easy process and no pain. Now I just have to be patient and wait for the next two weeks. That is not something I do well. Luckily enough, my parents are coming to visit this weekend and will be here through Thursday. That will definitely keep my mind off things. Now to stress off any possible symptom.
Did I say no pain? Apparently, the pain didn't feel like coming on until later. Around 4pm yesterday, I started feeling really crampy. I finally went home, took some tylenol and got off my feet. I felt better by bed time and everything was good today. I had some minor spotting too, but that also ended. The hard part was bd'ing last night. They said to DTD that night and today. When I first got home I thought that was going to be impossible, but we pulled it off. It was not the most romantic event, but we did what we had to do. Tonight will be a whole different night.
I am going to go insane waiting for 2 weeks. I need something to take my mind off things. I know my parent's visit will help, but not enough. I keep on reminding myself that if it doesn't work, not to stress. Things happen and don't happen for a reason. I think I'm more stressed now because I'm getting towards the end of the road. I really don't want to venture to IVF. We can't afford it. I know my parents would help, but I don't want to do that. I feel pitiful when that happens. I just need to remain positive.
My parent's visit was just what I needed. I haven't thought about whether I was pg or not until today. Ok, maybe that wasn't 100% the truth, but it was close. I haven't thought about it 24/7. However, today is a completely different story. I'm getting closer to Monday and my nerves are absolutely shot. DH and I had an argument tonight. It seems like that always happens when we're around my parents. They are just different and I wish they'd realize it.
On a TTC note, I've had some really weird things happening tonight. I don't know if its due to the UTI I had last night or if its a sign. I did the worlds worst thing ever and didn't officially finish my antibiotics. I couldn't help it. They told me to take 4 pills a day (with food) for 3 days. I kept missing pills and then I got all panicky that I needed to keep to the 3 days because of implantation and other timing so I stopped. Now I'm peeing every 2 seconds, but the weird part is that I really have to go. I have the same pressure on my bladder as I did when they thought I had the UTI, but instead of nothing really coming out and pain, I have a full bladder. I'm really that's a sign and not one of another UTI. I wonder how I'll feel tomorrow.
Off to sleep. I didn't get much sleep last night and I desperately need to catch up.
