** a warning for any fellas that might be reading this..there is a lot of female related talk in this post and I will not be at all offended if you just skip this one..if you really want to read the rest just skip over the first few paragraphs and you shouldn’t have too much scaring!
So yeah there has been a lot going on around these parts! I have sat down several times to document our lives changes in the last few weeks but as soon as I put my fingers to the keyboard my mind goes BLANK! Yeah annoying!! Therefore, here is my attempt to catch you all up on what has been going on and what is to come :) Bear with me, I cannot guarantee it will be a smooth ride but I will try and make it speedy!
First up, the topic that has been the center of my thoughts and the Hubs and my conversations, you guessed it…baby making :) Now here we are in the middle of our third round of fertility treatment, it feels like just last week we found out we weren’t preggo and now we are getting ready for another IUI! Crazy! They say remembering the drill is like riding a bike but apparently my bike riding skills aren’t stellar either! For some reason the shots this time seemed a lot more painful and I bleed a lot more than before. I just thought it was because it had been 4 months and I just forgot what it felt like. I have also been getting crazy bloated!! Well apparently I should have re-read the directions because for about 8 days of shots I was using 2cc’s of saline instead of 1cc! That means that I have been injecting about twice as much fluid into my tummy than I needed too and maybe that is where the bruises have been coming from too!
However, the good news is that it hasn’t affected the results because my little ovaries have been in overdrive and as of right now I have 10 measureable and nearing maturity follicles! hummm this could get interesting! The first time with the shots I had a lot but not this much and I didn’t do the IUI. The first time I did the IUI I only had one and we are unsure if I ever released. This time I am doing the IUI and I am taking a mega dose of HCG to be sure that I release. I have no idea what is going to happen and I am getting a little tired of being made aware each time the nurses call that I am at high risk of multiples! The Hubs and I have discussed how fun it would be to have twins..more than that I am unsure but first of all we know it is up to God and we fully trust him and second we just want to get pregnant! We should be having the IUI any day now and I got a little freaked out this weekend because my girls started hurting a lot and I was afraid I had ovulated early on my own..but have no fear everything is good according to my ultrasound today! Oh and the nurse also told me that since I am on the smaller side I will defiantly be feeling all the growing follicles and that’s why I am feeling majorly bloated!
Now onto other news..I have decided that allergies are the devil (or one of his evil spawns)! It seems that each year my allergies get worse and this year was no different. I ended up with the worst sinus infection to date and had one night where it hurt so bad to sit or lay down that I basically had to walk around the whole night..not fun! It is getting a lot better thanks to my friend the z-pack and as long as I don’t sleep on my right side i’m okay :) I am ready to get out of this ever-changing weather of NJ!
On that note the move is coming up quick! We leave in two weeks to head to Utah for the first drive out. This will be a quick drive out where we will close on the house (insert squeal), have our household goods delivered and leave one of our cars out there. We will fly back to NJ and be here for a few more days and then head out to Utah for the final time. I can’t believe it is almost here and I am so so so ready to have a house and our stuff again! The movers are coming to our storage unit tomorrow to pack all of our stuff and take it away to Utah..yay! I am so excited that we aren’t moving ourselves this time. I still haven’t figured out all the doctor details of moving and maybe being pregnant but hopefully it won’t be too stressful!
Now I am off to get my new Military ID ..hopefully the system will be working! Happy monday everyone!
Stay tuned to hear about our fabulous brunch and day out yesterday..
