IUI Oh My!

Well we went in this morning for our iui. When we got there I was a little nervous, but having Jae there with me made it so much better. Jae and i said a small prayer while holding hands before tbe Dr. Came in. Dr. came in with his med student and nurse! He said with a smile, " Let's do it!" We all had a good laugh and began the procedure. I was concerned that it was going to be painful like my HSG, but it wasn't bad at all. Jae held my hand the whole time and rubbed it with his thumb! We were told that both eggs released so hopefully we will have a better chance of conceiving! The procedure didn't last long at all and I just had to lay there for 30 min. During that time I had this sense of peace! So many thoughts were going through my head. Jae and I talked about names and just how happy we would be if this works! As soon as we left we went to get some vitamins, movies, and magazines! I was going to continue to rest all day in hopes that I would be able to conceive! Jae then went to the lake to go fishing with a buddy and my sweet mom came over and surprised me with sheperd's pie and watched two movies with me! Well I am still here on my couch and thinking about how crazy it is that my body could be creating a baby right now. I do not want to do anything to jeopardize that. I have decided to cut off caffeine and wine until I know something for sure. I know that may be a little over the top, but after all that I have been through I can't afford to chance it.

Signs? I don't normally believe in signs, but last night I went to rent a movie on Netflix and found one called Maybe Baby. It was a British film about a couple struggling with infertility. Crazy, huh? Then when I got home today, Nine Months was on! Coincidence? Not sure? Only time will tell! I am now entering into what is called the 2WW ( two week wait) I hope I can get through it without to much stress! Praying hard and will be back soon with any updates! Over and out!

Anxious and excited!

So we are finally here! This is the day before my iui! We are so excited about tomorrow and are praying so hard that we will finally be able to have a baby! The past two years have all come down to this one moment! It seems so surreal. I am laying here and thinking, "this could be my last day not pregnant!" wow, what a great feeling! Lots of prayers and hoping that it works!
