The waiting game

Yesterday’s IUI went well. Actually it hurt, but in my twisted logic, this was good, because I felt more reassured that the catheter was in, as opposed to last time when I fretted that I didn’t feel anything and worried that the sample somehow missed the mark. This one hit the mark. Hit it hard. I had cramps all afternoon and evening. I even had spotting. That was a first, but like I said, I was more reassured than upset.

C. and I even had an in person encounter pre-IUI. He is one of those delivery men, you know the FEDUPS guys in the cute summer shorts . . . anyway our RE is on his route this week so I got a kiss in the hallway. How’s that for happenstance? It would have been nice if he could have taken an early lunch and joined me, but he had a hellish day yesterday so we let that idea go. Anyway, that was my 9th IUI, our 12th ART procedure, I guess you could argue that I need my hand help now more than ever or you could argue that I am so calloused to this that who gives a shit about niceties like having someone there to hold your hand. I feel a little of both. I would have preferred his company, but not enough to cry about it.

So that’s that. We had 10.3 million post wash. They say that is good. Beta is October 2.

Now we wait . . . I am so tired of waiting. But what choice do I have??

Thanks for all the sweet comments yesterday. I’ll take all the luck you can throw my way!

    Sending you all my best!!

    I can relate to the feeling of an IUI feeling “too easy.” Hope the cramping has subsided somewhat though!

    No choice at all on the waiting. Unfortunately.

    Hope it goes ok. No – well. I meant *really really well*.

    10.3 million post wash is great. We had 400 (wonder why IUI wasn’t an option?). I am sorry you feel crampy but I hope that’s a good sign. Best of luck!!!!

    I know what you mean about being comforted by odd things. I hope that you’re right this time that it’s a good omen.

    Hoping for you.
