A little update
Thanks to everyone for the thoughts and well wishes! The IUI's went relatively well. The nurse practitioner said my eggs looked great (whatever that means) and that hubby's numbers were fantastic, so we've done all we can. Now we just wait. And for now anyway, I'm okay with the wait this time. I was at the doctors office 6 out of the last 9 days. It was feeling overwhelming and trying to juggle Bean and live our normal lives on top of it, it was a lot. I was pretty exhausted on Wednesday and Thursday. It didn't help that I went cold turkey on the caffeine Wednesday morning. Not my smartest move ever. I also just felt more worn out by it all then I did the first time we did this. My insides were more achy, I was more tired, I didn't feel great. It wasn't what I remembered. The nurse said it was because I had more follicles this time around, which I figured (and which still makes me a little nervous). I'm feeling a bit better now though and it's the weekend so I have hubby here to help. And tomorrow is my birthday! I'm actually really looking forward to it because I know that I'll get to do whatever I want for the whole day and I haven't gotten to do that very much lately. So I'm looking forward to sleeping in (past 6 in our household is considered sleeping in), not washing any dishes or fixing any meals, and just generally enjoying life for the day. And I'm hoping that in a little less then two weeks (May 24th), I'll get the best belated birthday present you could ask for. Bean was the best early birthday present I ever got, so maybe this time of year is a lucky one for me.
