So Disney was such a blast we are using the 2 days left on our 5 day pass to go this coming weekend Dec 4-6. I used some of our credit card points to book a hotel, so our tickets and room are taken care of and we can just go and enjoy ourselves again. We are doing IUI#2 in the morning. I'm trying to just go in like it isn't going to work again, maybe I'll get an early Christmas present, a girl can hope. Wish me luck!
I would have posted earlier, but I just didn't want to talk about it. Obviously I got a BFN on Thursday which was 12dp, my temps started plummeting so I knew what to expect. AF hasn't come yet, but I'm cramping already, so she's on her way. Luckily instead of being bummed, I'm going to Disney World next Thursday spur of the moment with my roomie and her family. Her fiance is in the military so he gets mad discounts. Rob will get to come for the weekend, which will be wonderful. At least now I can ride on all the rides, drink whatever I want, and not care about it. I mean of course I'm devestated, but there isn't a damn thing I can do about it. We are moving forward with IUI#2 and also the DNA Fragmentation Testing for Rob, hopefully we'll get some good results on both ends. Maybe just maybe, we'll get a BFP before the start of 2010.
One more day, that's all I keep telling myself. Luckily Thursday is going to be busy. I'm going to the school early in the morning to print off a gazillion papers and then to the library. Then I'll come home around lunch and Rob and I will go to the fair. Hopefully we'll be at the fair for a few hours, eat some yummy fair food and then come home. Once I get home I plan to read some of the gazillion papers I printed off and maybe watch some tv. Then I plan on trying to get some sleep, not sure how well that's going to work out, but we'll try it anyway. At 6:30am when Rob gets up to let the dogs out, it will be POAS Time, and the wait will be over. I'll be 13dpIUI. Happy Birthday to me!
I'm so nervous right now, just anxious to know either way whether this IUI worked. I've been procrastinating on my papers; I have to write one a week for the next 4 weeks. I've done 1 of 5, ugh, it's going to be a long November. My bday is coming up on Friday too. I think Rob is planning something, he's been a little sneaky lately. I think he's trying to do alot so that if it's a BFN, my whole bday won't be ruined. I can't say that if I do see that "Not Pregnant" that I've seen so many times before, I won't be devestated. This is the very very first time we have a real chance, all the other times didn't count. We didn't know about all of the other issues with MFI then. I have alot of twinges and tweaks just on my L side, which is the side I ovulated on, but I don't know if that means anything. It's probably me just imagining stuff again. Everyone warned me this would be a different kind of 2ww, they were certainly right. It's gone by so slowly, it stinks!
My first IUI went really well, didn't even feel it. Rob had a count of 60M swimmers with 60% motility, which I think was a huge improvement since his last S/A, then he only had 16M. I'm hoping maybe stress had something to do with it. I'm going to try and keep myself really busy the next two weeks and just hope for the best. I'll be POAS on Nov 13, my 27th b-day. I'll only be 13DPIUI, but I'd like to try, then if it's negative, I'll wait til Nov 15, Rob's 27th b-day and test again. Please please please let this work!!
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.
