Two Years and Counting

IUI#3 tomorrow

So, that high temp ended up being a fluke. I must have just been really warm under the covers or something. It went back down the next day, thankfully.

I’ve started the doctor visits in preparation for IUI#3. I actually started yesterday when I was scheduled to go in for an ultrasound. I hadn’t had a positive OPK yet, but they say to come in on day 15 even if you haven’t surged. If you have to come in on a weekend, they want you to be there by 8:00 because the lab is only open for a short time. I got there a few minutes after 8, feeling bad that I wasn’t exactly on time. It wasn’t until I got back in the lab area to have my blood work done that I realized it wasn’t 8:00—it was 9:00! I had totally forgotten about the time change. I apologized profusely, but they were so nice about it. I don’t even think they would have said anything to me about it if I hadn’t realized it on my own.

When I had the ultrasound, she saw that the follicle wasn’t yet mature (which is what I suspected since I hadn’t surged) so she told me to come back today.

I went in this morning, making sure I was ON TIME for my 7:30 appointment. Today I was in and out in just under an hour. The ultrasound showed that the follicle was “definitely mature” and that my lining looked great. Next, I went into the nurse practitioner’s office where she gave me the lovely HCG shot. I mentioned to her how bad my hip hurt last time, and she said that’s definitely a side effect. At least this time I’ll be expecting it.

So that was that. M has to be there at 7:30 in the morning, and I’m to go at 9. One of the male doctors will be doing the IUI, and I appreciated that the nurse asked me if that was ok. It was a little bit of a surprise last time when he walked in the door (he was the on call doctor), so I’m glad this time I’ll be prepared.

I feel like this month in particular I’ve been reading and hearing a lot about how God’s plans are always good, and that he is good to us in every instance of every day. I’ve been reminding myself of this constantly, and I believe it’s helped. I’m praying of course this is our month, but I’m also praying that I’ll be content whatever the outcome.

He is definitely always good. Last night I was trying to pray along the lines of thank you Lord for the prayers you answered for me a bit late and I couldn’t because with the benefit of hindsight, I realized the timing wasnt late, it was perfect. The Lord will perfect all that concerns you in Jesus Name. Amen

Everything sounds great! At my RE’s office, 2 out of the 3 doctors are male. As long as I have that paper drape over me, I really don’t feel very exposed. I hope that the IUI goes smoothly today.
