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!

My First Injection

I did it!! I gave myself my first ever injections! I was very nervous, counting down the minutes until 8:00 PM. It was easy, especially since they were pre-filled syringes - no mixing required. They were refrigerated though, so the solution was chilly - that felt weird.

Now the wait is on until tomorrow. I have taken the whole day off since Dean's "appointment" is in the morning and then we go to the RE's office for the IUI afterwards.

Just curious if anyone does anything special the day before an IUI? Eat, drink, baby aspirin? Anything to help it "stick?"

3 nice things to say...:

No pre-IUI advice for you. Just wanted to wish you luck!

Yay, Ovidrel!

It makes my breasts super sensitive for about 10 days after. The nurse said that is normal. I hate it! Just wearing a seatbelt is irritating.

Last time, I took about 3 hours off work in the middle of the day. That was stressful, and I wouldn't do it again. I'd just take a half day.

We don't do anything special, but my husband does stay with me for the IUI. Even though it makes him a little uncomfortable, he does that for me. Mostly we crack jokes and goof off!

Definately not as fun as the natural way! :)

Good luck! Sending you baby dust...

My doctor did recommend low dose baby aspirin as it increases bloodflow to neccessary organs. I heard that it slightly increases success rates. Good luck to you tomorrow! I go in for IUI #4 tomorrow too.
