So last Saturday’s ultrasound sucked. I wasn’t ready, although I had four follicles, none of them were big enough. Rescheduled for a repeat ultrasound 3 days later and I had two! 19.5 mm and 21 mm, one on each side–WOOHOO!!! The Moonster said they would both release, so that ups our ante this cycle! We sexed it up the day of my trigger shot, did an IUI Wednesday, another one on Thursday, and sexed it up on Thursday too. We did everything possible to ensure pregnancy this cycle…and if it doesn’t happen, I am going to be truly bummed. I am feeling super optimistic this time. Big Daddy’s counts were stellar!
I can’t take a HPT until February 24…OMG. I may very well die of anticipation these next two weeks!! Last time I took a test every single day, and I believe I had a chemical pregnancy. Absolutely devastated me. This time, I would rather not know and just have a negative test. I can’t deal with losing more babies.
Oh! The Moonster started me on Progesterone suppositories this cycle. Joy Oh Joy. I can barely contain my excitement of the feeling of my moonie being glued together. Yuck. The best part–if we get pregnant this cycle, I get to continue them! I stocked up on panty liners just in case. Woot!
Reading a friend’s blog, I came across this 30 day list–and I decided to try it out. I don’t blog daily, obviously, but hell if it takes me a year to do this, that’s ok too! I am leaving the entire list on here so I have something to come back too!

So….something I hate about myself. Should it be physical or mental or what? I think this will be an obvious answer. I hate that I can’t get pregnant, despite the fact of having no problems in the past. I hate that my body is revolting against me and won’t cooperate. I hate that we have to spend our money for infertility treatments and we have to make a million trips over an hour away–and I hate how no one seems to understand our pain.
I hate that this is happening and there is not one damn thing I can do about it. I hate the fact we can’t conceive a baby without medical intervention.
So there, that is what I hate about myself…
Perhaps my next post will be more uplifting, but don’t hold your breath.
