Okay, trying to sneak into the TTC journals. I've been so Jackson-centric that I've neglected following my favorite girls' TTC journeys. I'm very excited about your IUI. I really, really, really hope it leads to a sticky BFP and of course a gorgeous baby in your arms.

Robyn and Adrienne - thanks for checking in on me I'm enjoying following your baby-journals! Your little ones are adorable.

CD 2 - IUI CYCLE!

So AF came quite early this month, so I'm wondering if maybe I didn't ovulate. Who knows. However, this means that my IUI will be earlier Called yesterday to get my schedule, and pay the bill. I'm really excited! Starting next Saturday, I got in for daily blood work, and then they'll call me in the afternoon with my results. I'm going to take the entire day of my IUI off, not that I really need to, but I want to lie down and relax for the rest of the day. My boss has been great with all this stuff, and she's ok with me taking a vacation day VERY last minute

Nothing too much to report otherwise. I'm going to try and get 2 acupuncture appointments in this month before the IUI, because it can't hurt. DH is home sick with the flu, and has been out of commission for a few days. Poor guy. I'm nervous about me getting so sick now, but so far I seem to be doing ok. I hope he's doing better too soon, so his swimmers can be in top shape

Happy belated Thanksgiving to all you ladies down south!

CD 5 - IUI Cycle

So far I've managed not to get DH's sickness. And that's never happened in the history of ever. I catch EVERYTHING anyone has. So, I'm hoping that's a good sign that my body is healthy I was on the fence about if I would try acupuncture again this month, but I decided to give it a go this week and go twice before my IUI. So I'm heading in tonight and then Friday.

Other than that I'm mostly just going to try and get through this week as quickly as possible I think I'll do some OPKs as well, even though I'm getting blood LH done. I often have such a short surge, I just want to be doubly sure

Pretty tired today, and woke up to everything being completely white (first big snowfall happening before December = not a happy camper). Took me 15 minutes to find the boots this morning, but at least we got the winter tires on the car on the weekend. The dogs love the snow though!

IUI cycle!!!!! I'm so excited that it's finally here!

After my IUI, I laid down for 20 minutes then went back to work. It really wasn't bad, the HSG was much worse!

I'm so glad that you didn't get DH's illness!

I hate the snow, so I'm not looking forward to winter! But yay for winter tires and the dogs liking snow!

So excited for you, Katie. Hope the time flies by until the IUI and that you don't get sick. Of course, to put a positive spin on it if you do get sick, sometimes that weakened immune system can be a good thing in TTC! Best of luck with finding things to occupy your time and with the procedure itself. I have everything crossed for you!

I'm so excited for your IUI cycle! Loving all these IUI's (of course, not the reason for having them, but the fact that it's the next great step for many of you!!)

All my crossables are crossed - both for your IUI and that you don't get sick!

Enjoy your acupuncture!

CD 10 - IUI cycle

So the nurse just called - bloodwork showed a 'definate surge' so I'm going in tomorrow at 10:30 for my IUI! (DH goes in at 8:30).

I'm really excited . Kinda worried it will be too late because I usually o the day of my surge but I'm sure the nurses know what they are doing

Wish me luck tomorrow!

CD 11 - IUI day

So today was the big day. DH's numbers came back great post wash, which was a relief (since they were down last SA). Count was 124 million, post-wash motility (mobility?) was 89%. Nurse said the numbers were really good. It was super quick - the nurse did the whole thing. Then I laid down for 15 minutes (I actually almost fell asleep!). I have an appointment for bloodwork on the 19th (if AF hasn't shown). I pretty much took the rest of the day 'off'. Had an epic nap, watched some movies, and am about to order Indian take-out!

I'm not sure if I O'ed yet actually - still having O pains now - the nurse told me it was best to have the IUI just before you were going to O, so the sperm can be there waiting. It's funny how many different messages there are about that. Regardless, I think the timing is close enough!

Now to wait....

Thanks guys

CD 18 - 7DPIUI

Not too much to report. I had some light cramping while lying down the last couple nights, which is something that normally happens for me around 6DPO, but I know it could be anything so I'm not reading into it. I'm going to start testing early this month, so Wednesday is the day!

I really should get started on the whole Christmas shopping thing! I was going to do it this weekend - we got some books for my nephew but other than that I haven't started.

Other than that, nothing much happening. Took the dogs on an epic walk today. Hope everyone had a great weekend!
