This is my journey to motherhood. It's a bumpy road, but I'm traveling it whole heartedly.

Waiting for IUI#1
So it's on to waiting for IUI#1. Notice how I'm saying #1, yes I'm not being optimistic. With all the luck we've had these past 2 years and 7 months, I am not counting on a first attempt at IUI to work. It would be an absolute miracle if it did. So I'm preparing myself to be disappointed; not because I'm such a pessimist, but because I'm trying to protect myself from getting excited and then being let down again. My follicle check this morning went fine. I have several follies, and one large one on my left side. Still needs some time to cook though, so I'll be going in again on Friday, but OPKing til then. If I get a +OPK before Friday then I'll call in and we'll schedule the IUI. It would be cool if we did the IUI on Halloween. That would mean that we'd find out on my birthday or Rob's bday if it worked (Nov 13 or 15). Maybe a good sign? Rob's B/W results were good too, which was nice to hear. We still don't have any percentages on whether the IUI will work, but we may do some more testing.
My name is Melissa and I'm 28 years old. I've been married to my husband for six years. We've been together since we were 18. We started TTC in May of 2007. I've been thru 8 rounds of Clomid, 3 IUIs, and IVF#1 which all resulted in BFNs. FET#1 and IVF#2 ended in chemical pregnancies. FET#2 resulted in our little miracle Liam, born 8-17-11. This is now my journey through motherhood and past infertility.
