Almost there...

I went to see Dr. Wiz this morning (at 8 AM through some of the worst rain we've had in AGES), and all looks well. I have one super-giant follie that he seemed very happy with. I get to give myself a shot of Ovi.drel tonight in the stomach, and I go in Monday (Monday!!) afternoon for my dIUI!!!

Can you tell I'm excited? I'm staying optimistic. My mantra seems to be thiswillworkthiswillworkthiswillwork. I'm completely ignoring statistics and other downers like that.

On an unrelated but surreal note, get this. We had to pick the sp.erm up from the storage place and drive it across the Metroplex to the Dr.'s office. Ha. It comes in a huge black box, the size of a small suitcase. It weighs a ton. Well, maybe not a ton. But like, forty pounds. And it had to sit upright, buckled in, in the backseat BETWEEN DH'S PARENTS!! Hahahahahahahahaha.

They are down visiting for spring break. We didn't realize this was going to coincide with swimmer transportation. It was a bit akward. Luckily, I have wonderful in-laws who just laughed when DH insisted on taking a "family picture" of them with their possible future grandchild buckled between them.

Good times.

Keep me in your prayers, y'all. And keep everything you can crossed. Monday's gonna be a good day!


  1. That's funny about the transport :)

    Stay positive! Good luck!

  2. Good luck Monday! The family picture...SOOO funny!!! HAHA!!

  3. haha. That's hilarious! Keeping you in my prayers!

  4. Hi there - just found you through the LFCA and came over to wish you luck tomorrow. I totally hope tomorrow is THE day, but if it's not, I'll pass on something a fellow blogger shared with me early in my dIUI trying days: IUIs in general are more about the process than, say, IVF, so try not to sweat it if the first one doesn't work. I know, I know, easier said than done, but as I type this I am cuddling my son who was conceived on our 6th dIUI, and I promise you this - once your little one arrives, the ups and downs of cycling will be a blurry, distant memory.

    Still, I hope tomorrow is the day you will celebrate next year with a 3 month old in your arms. Good luck and I am thinking every good thought for you.

  5. Hi! Wishing you good luck today! Found you through LFCA and wanted to encourage you. I am currently pregnant with my first IUI, and want you to know it works and can work on the first try!! I wish you the same and don't worry--it's a breeze!

  6. Good luck and prayers for a positive result.

  7. hey can you drop me your email address so I can add you to my adoption blog?
