8/30 I have to wait till Thursday

Well I am 12 days post IUI and I have been having some cramping and a little tenderness. I hope this is all good signs. I have to wait till Thursday the 3rd of September for a blood test. However my period is supposed to come tomorrow/Tuesday. My progesterone level was very low it was 8.7 and they like to see it close to 25/30ish she said. So I was pretty bummed and I thought all was lost but I was told to up my dose and anything is possible. We heard a lot of percentages for this procedure and there not very good. ranging from 10-25% each time. A lot of women say it takes a few times for it to work. So its hard to keep your hopes up when the chances are very low.

I heard with clomid it can through off your cycle so that its a possible my cycle could be 35 days instead of the regular 28/29. We are really excited to test, a lot of people said that today I could test but I don't want to jinks my self. So we have to play the waiting game which is hard enough. However we are pretty busy, we are moving to a bigger apartment in our complex and its much cheaper! Who would of thought we would get more space and for less money! We still don't know where we want to be after we have children, mom and dad make it really hard because we would love to be very close but they are so far! So I will update more about what we find out on Thursday, cross your fingers and toes and send some baby dust our way.

P.S. Congrats to the Witko/Milazzo Family on your miracle we are all so happy for you!

8/17 PRE IUI

So this is what the nurse said:
One mature folical on the right side and I took at 10,000 HCG BoosterMy Estrogen level 227 which is right where I need to be. Also my lining was suppost to be at a 7 and it was double she said which is nice and thick! haha

So if you havnt heard I'm all set and ready to have my IUI tomorrow at 7:30 In the morning.They told us to come in to collect, the sperm must be washed: which translates to clean out all the dead sperm, excess fluid... I was told if they put it in "raw" i would be in unbelieveable pain! So it takes about an hour. so we are going to grab breakfast and then come back to do the iui!

So roy took the day off to wait on me hand and foot! Which I love! he is such a great man!~I will try and update my blog tomorrow via couch or bedroom! I will prob. have my labtop by my side why i lay there all day!So thats all she wrote people... thank you to all my friends and family who have shown great support and prayer! We love you all very much and look forward to a happy and healthy baby...

8/16 Feeling pretty bumbed

Well I have been taking ovulation test since Tuesday August 13th and I havn't seen a postive result but Saturday morning I though my eyes were playing tricks on me and I thought I saw a line. So I called Saturday and they told me to take another test Monday morning and then call in. I work at 8:00 am so I dont know when they want to see me. Its so messed up, I feel like they can't give me strate answer about anything. I'm afriad that I'm going to miss my ovulation because they wont see me sunday "today".

Mom tells me not to stress out and that they know what they are doing. So I have to take a breath and let mom's advice be they way I get through this. I will write tomorrow about what events will be happening next! I hope that this IUI I works. My guess is that it will be Tuesday but I will know more tomorrow.
