D-Day Tomorrow.......

.....or at least thats what I am calling it. Tomorrow is a BIG day for us! A make it or break it type of day :/

Here's why.........

I went in for my 1,000,000,000,000th doctor appointment yesterday (ok, maybe I am exaggerating a little) and we saw this:


HOPEFULLY, those are some eggs ready to be released and make Baby Hill. I am still not quite where I should be after having taken all those injections, but my doctor feels that I am close enough for us to try moving forward with our first IUI (or insemination). I took my last injection yesterday after my appointment and then took an injection of Ovidrel (which helps trigger the release of the eggs) last night and tomorrow we will go in for the insemination!

I am beyond nervous about tomorrow! I have no idea what outcome to expect- of course, I want to jump up and down with joy at the fact that we are finally getting to move forward, but I am also a little pessimistic since I know that I did not get as far along as my doctor had hoped with the injections. The assistant who did my sonogram yesterday said that she has seen quite a few people with similar results end up pregnant- so I can only keep my fingers crossed that I am added to that list of lucky women!

Husband has been more of the "realist" in all of this so his very first comment to me was " DO NOT get your hopes up"- he hates seeing me so disappointed everytime things do not work out. I know that he wants to get excited about this too, but the poor guy is trying so hard to keep a straight face for my sake

Our gameplan for tomorrow is this: Husband will go in tomorrow morning to do his "business." Then an hour later at 11:00 am I have my appointment to have the IUI completed. I am very bummed that Husband is unable to be there for this (since we just found out yesterday that we would be going in tomorrow he is unable to get out of work at that time) but I am happy that my MIL will be there with me for some support :) Of course I will not find out any results tomorrow, but I am hoping to get some more details from my doctor about what to expect over the next couple of weeks and how soon we can see if it works!
Now, if only tomorrow could come sooner...........

Good luck tomorrow! I can't tell if this is your first IUI, but if it is, and you'd like to hear more about my experience, or what I've heard others have gone through, feel free to send me an email at sjennings@bakeru.edu. I had my first IUI last month and I'm gearing up for my second one next week.
