You can thank the OBGYN that did my IUI today for the title. She was awesome and almost makes me want to consider switching from my current one to her. I think she was more excited about the fact I had ovulated for the first time than I was. She was so eccentric and bubbly happy, which kept the mood light while the procedure was being preformed.
The IUI process was actually pretty quick, and much like a pap smear. It was just a little more weird feeling and sounding than anything. However, despite the odd feelings/sounds I was pretty relaxed. I’m oddly becoming more and more comfortable with having doctors view and mess with me. I think it has a lot to do with how they do it and the ‘vibes’ they send out. Someone who can laugh and make you laugh while making you feel comfortable is awesome. While the insemination was going on the Doctor and nurse joked with us about pulling over on our two hour drive home to have sex and how they can even give us a official doctors note. Apparently they had a couple who pulled over on their way home and while having sex the guy broke her water at 36weeks.
“I know this is voodoo but place your feet in the middle and we’re going to have you to continue laying down for 10 minutes.” is what alerted me that everything went well and was over. I felt calm and listened to Jeremy play his DS beside me. Perhaps things would just work out. The doctor said she had a great feeling about us and that holidays seem to be the days when people get pregnant. Before we were leaving she smiled and gave us thumbs up and said, “Now, be sure to go home and have lots of sex!”
Now that we’re home I’ve just felt tired from cutting my sleep so much this week and I can definitely feel my right ovary area. The backside of my hip is also sore from the HCG trigger shot. In the end though I’m sure it was all worth it. Even if the IUI doesn’t take and we don’t get pregnant this cycle, at least now we know what it takes to make me ovulate. That is the hardest part of all.
Now, I’m going to go watch TV and try not to drive myself crazy during the two week waiting period before I can pee on a stick and see if the lines show up. It’s going to be hard. I have a good feeling about this. Just need to keep off of this site and take it easy. With that said, here are my last parting thoughts…
GO SPERMIE GO! YOU CAN DO IT! CATCH THE EGG! Also thinking PINK!!!
