Ho Hum

Not much to say as there hasn't been a lot going on. I'm almost done with my TWW distraction list. Only item left is to finish the diaper bag, which I hope to do this weekend. I'll take pics when I'm done to share with you all.

This cycle has been much more enjoyable as there have been a couple blog buddies at the same stage of the cycle as us. I think it would be so much fun if Two Hot Mamas, And Baby Makes Three and Amy and I got our BFPs next week!

7 days down...7 more to go.

Hark the Herald Angels Sing

I feel like we've been living in a Motel 8 for the past 2 years and just moved into a penthouse suite at the Ritz. All I have to say is:

1. Warmed speculum
2. No tenaculum
3. Official sperm count of 18 million

Not only that but when we go in for IUI #2 tomorrow we'll have another follicle scan done to see which follicles have hopefully done the deed. Seriously, is it Christmas???

Try#9 a Go! - UPDATE

Went in for another scan today and we have been given the thumbs up to proceed. I trigger later this afternoon (between 4 and 5) and go in for IUI#1 tomorrow morning and IUI#2 Friday morning. The great news is that our RE's office is going to do them this cycle!! Apparently, the doctor's had a meeting about it and out of the four who own the practice three of the doctor's are all for doing "donor inseminations" so the three doctor's are moving forward with doing them and the one not so much. Amy and I think we spotted him on our visit today. Old curmudgeony looking man (he is the only one in the practice that we have never seen).

UPDATE: E2 is at 732 so things are looking good. I swear after all of this I really think I could get some form of medical degree!

Getting Better

Sorry we've been MIA for so long with no updates. Amy is doing much better! With her gallbladder gone she is slowly getting back to her old self again. Thank you all for your well wishes.

As for TTC we've had a couple follicle scans and things seem to be progressing. We go in again for another one tomorrow morning and hopefully learn when we can trigger and get this show on the road.

I just re-read this post and it is way blah. Sorry about that, not feeling much excitement this go round.

BUT one thing I am excited about is that for our 2 year wedding anniversary (which isn't until July) Amy and I decided to by ourselves theater tickets. We are going to see Kathy Griffin in July and Wicked in August. I can't wait!!

Can't Catch a Break

The short version is Amy has been in the hospital since Thursday. They took her gallbladder out today and are transferring her to a different hospital tomorrow for another procedure on Monday. We're hoping she'll be home by Tuesday. Send positive healing thoughts her way. When she's feeling better and I'm not so exhausted you'll get to hear the long version.
