Sunday Update

I couldn't believe how busy it was in the RE's office this morning! The place was packed. How sad is that? All of us dealing with infertility. Our nurse told us she'd already done eight IUIs that morning. She said I handled it better than any of her other patients, and she thanked me for that. Hey, I'm a trooper. Anything for the good of the cause.

We were really happy to learn that we had 14 million swimmers in our favor today, and the ultrasound revealed that two of the three eggs had ovulated. So, I think we've got a good chance. The nurse told us we don't need to return tomorrow morning for another IUI, and I'm relieved about that. I have been there six out of the last nine days!

So, tonight I begin taking the progesterone (yuck!), and I'll return to the RE's office a week from tomorrow for a blood test to measure my progesterone level.

Yes...the sheer number of RE patients is a little staggering...but so good there is help! While I didn't love any of it...I was alsways sort of happy to endure whatever in hopes that it would work! I am prying hard...twins...I haven't forgotten! Take it easy...and relax...

Surely in all those swimmers there is one "Michael Phelps" type (or maybe 2) in the bunch! PS-my friend's IV twins are now at home- they were preemies- perfect but so little! Keep believing in miracles!
