Hoping to Claim Victory....

Well, we had our IUI on Saturday morning. Usually I'm so lazy on Saturdays and can easily sleep until 10am so it was weird to be up, showered and ready to go at 8am. We dropped off our sample and went to this great local breakfast place....which was closed. We were so sad. We'll miss Yogi's.....there's another one but this one was closer to our house!
Anyway, we went back to the doctor and got the procedure done. I super impressed that Dr. Carrington and Sherry came in on a Saturday to do the procedure. Dr. Carrington is not my regular doctor but he was on call so he came upstairs to do the IUI.
When he left he told us that he hopes to be able to "claim victory." I hope so too.

Our RE appointment was moved to Feb 12th. And we found out that there is another RE who comes highly recommended that is on our insurance after all. His office can't see me until March 24th we have to decide which one to go with.

One last time....

Wow! It's been a long time since I posted. Yesterday began cycle 17 on this journey to become a family. We are going to do one last round of clomid and hopefully another IUI this cycle. The IUI is going to be tricky since the "ideal" days are during a weekend. I'm all stocked up on ovulation predictor kits though so we can hit the right timing hopefully.

We have an appointment with a reproductive endocrinologist on Feb if this cycle is a bust at least we have a back up plan. Right now I'm assuming the RE will want to do injectable fertility meds. I CANNOT imagine giving myself shots though so either husband will have to do it or I'll see if the school nurse where I work can do it. The thought of getting horomone injections in the middle school nurse's office is quite a funny picture. I'll let you know how it goes.

I've had these moments lately of such sadness about our situaton. And I've also had moments of peace that the Lord is in control of the timing. I pray that God will be glorified in this situation and in all we do.
