Good Afternoon friends, the picture above was my view this morning per usual. If you can’t tell our IUI #3 didn’t take and I found out on Thanksgiving. My In-laws were in town and I did the whole meal, cooking all day and right before I was about to serve everything I ran to the bathroom and well….. I started my period. So… I gave myself a 5 minute pity party then told myself to lock it up and I walked downstairs and served Thanksgiving dinner.
I will say this month was hard, I really felt good about it… we did 2 inseminations and all my levels were on par, so we really thought this was the month…. but it wasn’t. So this morning I started the whole process over again fro Round #4! I think what devastated me the most when I found out it didn’t take was that I have to do it all over again. My left arm is shot for a bit, we can’t draw anymore blood from it for awhile so we started in on my right arm today. And I will be doing shots at home again this month. AND>.. if you are like me and needles petrify you, having an untrained NON-professioal AKA Matt come at you with needles is HORRIFYING! I am not joking, it’s an ordeal.
As of now we will be doing this month, and next if needed which will be round 5 and if that doesn’t take them February we will start IVF which scares the crap out of me. But that will be a discussion…. the invasiveness, the money… it all has to be taken into account. I mean these 3 rounds plus this are not cheap.
But anyways all I can do is suck it up and try to put off positive vibes for this month. And I appreciate all of you who are doing the same. And what would a fertility post be from me without a snarky card……….
