The 2ww Begins…

Today was the day – we had our IUI! It’s really pretty uneventful and anticlimactic. The worst part is the speculum – ouchy! The only weird thing was the first nurse who came in was having trouble putting in the speculum (which felt awesome, let me tell ya) and then another nurse had to come help her. Oh, and apparently I still have the stitch in my cervix. I thought that was supposed to absorb….? So on the third try, they got the Mr. Speculum in place and we were off to the races. Then, they transfered the 83.5 million spermies and now…cross your fingers…we are knocked up! I feel a little bloated and crampy, but nothing too awful. I was told to start two other meds on Sunday evening (the prometrium and the Lovenox). I get a few days off from shots! Woohoo! After the IUI I went for acupuncture and had a great session and then got lunch at Wegmans (my absolutely fav. place!) and came home to rest. All in all a good day.

Okay so here is something I will write about in more detail later as the hormones and emotions really get going: My beta test to find out if I’m pregnant (that is if I don’t cave and POAS – pee on a stick) is the 1 year anniversary (to the DAY) that I found out my first angel baby had died. I was a little over 13 weeks along, went in for a routine appointment and found out the baby had died at 12 weeks, 6 days. It was a day that changed my life. And now, one year later, I will be finding out if this IUI was successful and if so, what the beta is – i.e. is it high enough for a viable pregnancy. Wow what a weird coincidence. I’m not sure how I feel about that…

But for now, I will focus on letting these little things (or this little thing) grow inside of me and wait to see what happens!

And the 2ww begins…

  3. Congratulations on your IUI! I actually think the uneventful part is a good sign. 😉

    The 2ww, is never easy. I’m sorry that your beta falls on such a painful anniversary.

    I hope the next two weeks fly by for you!

  4. I’m hoping that the guys and the gals so their thing and make a sorrowful day for you, happy. Of course, nothing can replace your Angle Baby, but something to smile about or happy tears would be so nice for you! Good luck!

  6. Oh, Honey, I knew the dates were close, but I didn’t realize they were this close. We are very optimistic that this time will be different. But if that isn’t to be, then we’ll move on to IVF. Love you,

  7. Sorry for the coincidence in the dates…I can’t imagine how difficult it will be for you to learn baby-related news on that day.

    Best wishes to you and your DH as you continue your journey.
