100% of the shots you don’t take

Well, I’ve had a whirlwind of a month and it just keeps going. I’ve not even been back for 30 days yet and I’ve:

-Moved into a house

-Bought a new car


Our new Subaru Outback

-Had a job interview!

-Did 59 hours of continuing education

-Flew to Dallas to spend 5 days with my cousin and her newborn

-Took clomid

-Grew 2 awesome follicles


-Gave myself a shot

-Met up with several friends to catch up

And in the next few days:

-Our shipment from NZ will arrive Thursday

-Which also happens to be the day that our first IUI is scheduled!!

-Friday my husband’s whole family is coming to visit Minneapolis for the weekend

-Saturday we hopefully will get our new internet after changing providers and then the system “went down” on the day we were supposed to get connected!

Wow! Did you catch something in there? I went in for my day 10 scan and huzzah, I had two big follicles waiting. One was 24 something and one was 20 something, on the right and left. And my lining was good (I was so in the zone I wasn’t paying attention, but 8.4 sticks out in my head).

So in a whirl, we got scheduled and instructed for our IUI. I had to give myself my first shot and was terrified. Hubby already had tickets to the One Republic/Script/American Authors concert, so I was riding solo on this one. I was a bit nervous, so facetimed with my parents. My dad was a corpsman in the Navy so is always a rock in medical situations.


Writing about shots makes me think of the original quote, and the reduplicated quote from Michael Scott 🙂

The biggest problem I had was getting the bubble out! There was liquid at the top, then a big air bubble and I was afraid of losing too much liquid from the needle in the process of getting rid of it. My dad kept telling me I was being a wimp J I finally did it, and it was nothing. I really didn’t feel it at all. I got a little woozy immediately after for like 10 sec, but that could have been a vasovagal response, I just had a lie down for a few minutes and felt fine.

So now I’ve just got to get through the next few days of chaos, then have some down time while I wait to hear about the job and hopefully a BFP! Both hubby and I are feeling really hopeful this month, and even if we are let down, it’s a great feeling to be hopeful! Also, my devotions have really been speaking to me lately and helping me feel secure and loved by God. Please pray for good timing and precision by the doctors/nurses for a successful IUI!
