So since last posting, my life has gone crazy! That is why it’s taken me 4 days to post about my IUI.
Wednesday morning I left my house for a visit to my parents in Iowa. They are moving soon so I came down to help them go through some stuff. Thursday morning I was to drive back to Minneapolis, get a quick bikini wax (been forgetting for over a week so needed to get it done before the weekend!) then it would be off to the Center for Reproductive Medicine for my very first IUI.
I get home at 10:30 for a quick 30 min unloading of the car (we had out Subaru packed with my stuff from my parent’s), and then it would be off for my adventures. I walk downstairs to turn a fan on to air out the house and *squish*. Our basement was flooded. What?!? Literally hours before my IUI and our brand new basement is flooded.
Thursday’s schedule was packed tight included dinner with friends at our place that night. Luckily the IUI was pretty uneventful and everything went as expected. I had no discomfort or pain at all! I really enjoyed my 10 min lie down after the procedure, but I took my time and made it 15 min just to be safe 🙂 Friday morning was cleaning and getting ready for the in-law troops who were arriving at 3 for a weekend visit. I was already stressed about having the house put together for their visit, and this just made me crazy. So instead Thursday afternoon, night, Friday morning, and afternoon were spent pumping water out, squeegee-ing and moving our new unpacked basement up into the garage. Good grief!
The in-laws arrived and it was chaos until they left this afternoon. Fun, but chaos none-the-less.
Then today we discovered all our floors have to be pulled up and it would save us $1500 to do it ourselves, so we opted for that. Oh, did I mention my husband is away on business from today until Tuesday, so I have to manage all this by myself. So, I’ve been tearing up floors with my respirator on hoping this is just a test of how strong I am before I get my BFP in 2 weeks. Just making sure I don’t work too hard and get too exhausted.
I refuse to take it as a bad omen for this cycle, but choose to see it as a test as to weather I can keep my cool in tense situations. I was actually quite proud of myself for how I handled all this drama. I was able to just be thankful for what I do have and not dwell on what I’ve lost. Some people lost their homes in the floods. Others had damaged possessions. I just have to replace my floors. Please pray for my patience and ability to get all the work done and of course for that BFP!!
