IUI #5

Everything went so well today- 

First Rob got me a good luck charm. He text me yesterday while I was at work and told me he had a gift for me on the kitchen table. When I got home I found this: 



Its a Origami Owl custom necklace. A few weeks ago we were out with a few friends and I admired one of the girls necklaces and told Rob it was something I would like someday. Well Rob went online and chose a necklace made just for me- 

Flip-Flops- because I LOVE my flip flops
Sand Dollar- to represent where we were married - the beach 
Softball- because I have always played 
I Love My Dog- because I'm slightly obsessed with my dog
Emerald Heart- my birthstone 
Medical Symbol- to represent my line of work 
Margarita- to represent all the good times 
Wedding Ring- to represent our marriage 

He did good. So today I put my necklace on and headed off for IUI # 5. Rob dropped off at 8:30 and I arrived at 9:30. I waited a bit in the office and then was taken back. Rob had an amazing post wash count of 81 million. 

The first thing my nurse did was compliment my necklace. She even told Dr. S he should get one for his wife, which made him laugh. He explained he doesn't do sentimental things like that his wife would think he went crazy. I explained what all the charms represented during my IUI. There is something about laughing with your doctor that makes it seem a little better given the circumstances. 

Then my nurse pointed to the ceiling: 


She told me the story of the wind chimes. A woman who had been coming to the clinic for over a year was given this wind chime by a friend while she was going through her infertility journey. When the women found out she was pregnant- yesterday- she brought in the wind chimes. They hung them in the room as a good luck charm. 

Well I felt so blessed. I have had so many of you emailing me today and so many good luck charms being placed in my path. Everything seems so good for this cycle. 

My lining was 14mm, I had 3 good mature follicles and Rob had a great count. Everything looks so good. 

Not my best photo..
So I laid back and tried to make some babies.. .

I know that we did everything we needed to do on our behalf this cycle. Its in Gods hands now. 

After my IUI I went to acupuncture and had a very relaxing session. I have my next session scheduled for next week on Thursday- hopefully right around implantation time. 

Thank you all for thinking of us today. 

The two week wait begins....

  9. What a beautiful necklace! Rob did a great job :) I hope it brings you tons of luck this cycle :) It sounds like everything fell into place perfectly. I will be so happy for you when you get your BFP!!!

    Just wanted to update you quick on my u/s today..there is one, possibly 2 mature follicles on the right, and 3 on the left. They think the left ones won't affect anything since I don't have a tube on that side. Lining is a 10. So I triggered tonight, and we're doing TI. After thining this whole cycle would be canceled, I'm very hopeful and excited tonight that things look so good :) Sorry to take over your comments with stuff about me, I just wanted to update you!

    Keeping everything crossed and praying that this is your cycle!
