And We're Off...

Two big, mature follies,
One on the left, one on the right,
Time to T-R-I-G-G-E-R tonight.
Will one be THE ONE?
With time we'll see.
IUI on Saturday,
Then the two week wait insanity!

So of those six pretty follies, two have indeed come through - with a third hanging out but probably still a bit too small to do much. Time to gird my loins for Saturday with chants of "Own the speculum! Own the catheter!" once more.

I'm tired this cycle. I don't think that it's the IF stuff bringing me down but with all that is going on at work plus all of the demands of cycle monitoring, exhaustion has set in. I pray for a quick and easy IUI process this weekend and then, who knows? I'm not optimistic, I'm not pessimistic. I'm just here - hopeful - but realistic - open to whatever may have to come next.

Once again, they've put me on that lovely little blue pill. No, not Viagara (Irish Boy wishes!), but good ol' Estrace. But good news! No "shagging the smurf" for me this time! I get to take it orally, which means by the weekend, Irish Boy will have come up with something dirty to describe that. Stay tuned!

To distract me from my impending dIUI, I'm very excited to be going to a production of "The Producers" tomorrow night. A good friend is one of the leads and this may be just what the doctor ordered after a very busy few weeks. Throw in dinner out beforehand, and yours truly is one happy girl.

As for tonight? Crashing out in front of the tv until it's time to load up that needle for the trigger sounds just about perfect to me. Livin' the infertility dream here, Internetz! Livin' the dream!

I was thinking about you! Well done follies!! And my clinic actually thinks that taking the estrace vaginally actually it's counterproductive as normally the tablets are coated! So by all means I'll go with them orally. Everything crossed for saturday!!

Rach said...

Sounds great! Hope all goes perfect.

Heather said...

DO it girl! Thinking of you!

It's a pretty sad commentary that we are excited that we get to take a med orally, huh? Our thoughts will be with you Saturday and during your 2ww. Go spermies, go!

I hope you had a good time at the show. Sometimes nights out like that can do a world of good.

As always my fingers are crossed for you. :)

I love your little nursery rhymes. Though something tells me won't be reciting them to your future children. (And here's hoping that one of those follies will result in said future child!)

Have a great time tomorrow night - good luck with the 2ww. It feels eternal, doesn't it?

Busted Kate said...

Just checking in on you, I keep coming back to see if there is any news! I know its early, but I hope it went well and I'm crossing everything physically possible. Thinking of you!!
