Well, I probably don't need to type here that IUI #1 was a bust. I knew the day before I was supposed to test when I started spotting, and I just lost it.

We're on to IUI #2, with the same protocol. I'm on day 5 of clomid today and the ultrasound to check on the follies is scheduled for next Monday. Let's hope that the 2nd time is the charm!

Productive and Waiting

I am so itching to POAS, but I won't, until Tuesday at least. If it's negative, I'm seriously going to be wondering what is going on in my ute, because there have been all sorts of twinges and things going on there for several days.

Today was soooo productive - I cleaned out my clothes closet, baked chocolate chip pumpkin bread, a baked penne dinner, and cleaned my butt off. It's a good way to keep myself distracted while I wait!

In the middle

Back to the grindstone - I think for awhile I was grieving my IF diagnosis. I was in a really low place. But now that I've joined up with the IF girls on The Bump and FB I can feel my spirits lifting. Yes, there are sad stories and a lot of disappointments, but there's a lot of support and love, yes, love, on those boards for those of us in the thick of this craziness.

So - I'm scared to go back to acupuncture since it coincided with the start of a cluster headache cycle last time. But, here's the update to where we are now: 50 mg Clomid + Ovidrel IUI #1 was on 10/1 and we're waiting until 10/15 (yeah right!) to take an HPT. Fingers crossed that it's a + and that I don't drive myself nuts between now and then!
