Hi there! Thanks for stopping by. If you'd like to know backstory stuff, click here. Not much has changed since last month's IComLeavWe, but here's what has:
I gained a puppy who is simultaneously the cutest thing I've ever seen and the biggest pain ever. (I spelled simultaneously right on the first try!!) We named him Kreacher after the house-elf in Harry Potter since the other two dogs are named after the other two house-elves. (Dobby and Winky).
We got a second opinion and wound up getting advice that was completely the opposite of what our RE was giving us. If we have to do another cycle, I think we'll switch.
Hopefully though, this last IUI did the trick. I am currently 5 days into my 2WW. I had 4 big follies (3 according to Dr. Wiz, since one was only 17mm) so I'm hoping at least one of them got hit with sperm. I keep thinking "Well, with four targets, one is bound to work", but I try to tell myself not to take things like that for granted. I guess we'll see.
Right now, I am enjoying my summer break from teaching. I am trying to write an essay for Glamour's personal essay contest. I thought it would be easy to right about our infertility, but I'm finding it much harder than I expected. It is not pleasant to relive all the crap we've been through in the past 8 months. But, if it helps even one person who reads it, even if it's only a judge at Glamour, than I'll be happy.
