Kimbosue's Blog has MOOOOOVED!

**As of November 9, 2009, please find me at my new home below.**

Some posts are pw protected, so for the super secret decoder pen....ahem... code, please email me at kimbosue2 AT hotmail DOT com.

This blog will remain open. The link is still tied to lots of IF blogs, groups, and websites. I hope someone can read through my journey and find hope and strength and know that there is a light at the end of the IF tunnel. Prayer is the key! I love all my IF girlies I met along the way, and I hope to keep your friendships going forward during this next chapter of Mommyhood. I hope to see you there!

IUI #1 - DONE!

I was a nervous wreck all morning. The swimmer clinic processed the guys in about 45 minutes. We then had to transport them the 2 blocks back to Dr. H's office. They have to be kept warm so Dean kept them in his pocket with his hand around them.

The actual process only took about 5 minutes. When we were done, Dean says, "So was it as good for you as it was for me?" I say, "It was awesome!" Dr. H and his nurse cracked up at that one! Then I had to lay still on my back for 20 minutes. There was only a little bit of pain because everything was tender from ovulating. Cramps lasted about 2 hours afterwards, and that was it! I laid on the couch all day long hoping to help the guys swim to their goal!

I go next Wednesday for blood work to check my progesterone and then again the following Wednesday for a pregnancy test! Oh the dreaded 2 week wait begins!

Grateful for:

  1. My awesome RE who made this cycle an option for us.
  2. Husband's increased swimmer counts - his count, motility, and morphology were better than they have ever been!
  3. The prayers and support from my family and friends.

7 nice things to say...:

I've been on the fence about early testing. I hope I can hold out and wait for the test at the RE's office. I might break down next week and POAS!
