~I’m afraid to sneeze…and I know that’s ridiculous.
~I’m afraid to pee…and I know that’s ridiculous too.
~I’m grateful that they told me about 100 times how awesome DH’s sample was.
Above and beyond.
All terms they used when going over the thaw results. I’m pulling these numbers from my head so they might be slightly off, but basically, pre-freeze they hope for 80% motility and a score of 2-3+…he had 98% motility and a 3+… post-thaw they usually see 40-50% motility and 2+…he had 70% motility and 2-3+…plus his count was super high, so that means there were tons of great swimmers.
PLEASE GOD let just one decide that he and rockstar egg should go steady.
~I can’t believe I didn’t cry when I was sitting alone in the IUI room. I got teary eyed waiting for the nurse to come in, but then I told myself to buck it up and somehow didn’t let the tears fall. My husband would be impressed. 🙂
~My “cervix was tilted down,” so the nurse had to reposition the speculum during the procedure. Joy. It was still done in under 2 minutes.
~I have lost all modesty thanks to IF. The things I talk about and tell you ladies…it’s kind of fucked up, but I’m so grateful to have y’all.
~How can the IUI be the cheapest part of this whole process? Craziness.
~I’m stoked Michael Bublé was playing when I turned on the radio in my car post-IUI.
~I was anxious the entire 10 minute drive to my friend’s house b/c I didn’t want to be in an upright position.
~I’m laying on my left side all day long, just in case it makes a difference. It’s hard to type on my laptop when it’s on its side. LOL
So yeah, the roads were interesting on the way up to Denver this morning. It’s 350 miles from my door to the clinic, and between 6am and 12noon I drove through everything from 35 degrees and blowing snow to 65 degrees and sunny. There was one detour b/c of a jackknifed semi, but I still made it with an hour to spare. SO nice to not feel rushed.
It was funny to go down to the andrology dept to pick up the thawed sample and see what the guy’s magazine selection was like. A little different than the lobby upstairs. 🙂
…and finally, this teeny little room hopefully changed my life today. 🙂
Thank you Amanda, Oak, and manymanymoons for talking/texting me through everything this morning. It definitely helped me to not feel so alone!
Like Julia said in the comments below…it’s in God’s hands now.
