Well after one horrible night curled up in bed being miserable, and two days of S reassuring me that everything is going to be okay, I’m back to feeling excited about our upcoming insemination. I can’t believe that we are so close. Today is CD 12 or 13 for S (not sure off the top of my head), so S is diligently peeing on OPKs three times a day, burning her moxa, taking her prenatal vitamins, and getting acupuncture done. She actually has gone a few times and goes in again tomorrow after work. So we are hoping that our insemination date will be 5/1 or 5/2. So close!
I’m really hoping that it will be on 5/1 because that is a Sunday and I have the day off. I work Monday-Friday, and I’m teaching a class that ends on 5/2 so I couldn’t go at all if it was on 5/2, but I have more flexibility on 5/3 and we both have off 5/4 to send the day together and possibly inseminate if needed. Either way we are doing two IUIs, I believe 24 hours apart, so I should be able to go to one of the two, no matter what day it falls on. The little swimmers arrived safe and sound on Monday at the doctor’s office so we are good to go there. Our office has their own cryo-tank and lets us store the sperm for free, so that makes the shipping part of all of this super easy. It’s all happening, after so much waiting and planning, the big day is drawing near.
So if everyone would put good baby vibes out into the world for us this next 4 days, we’d appreciate it! I keep chanting in my head, “One Hit Wonder” and will be breaking out my One Hit Wonders mix CD tonight to jam out to in the car for the rest of the week. Can anyone think of anything else we can be doing to up the chances? Any one know any old wives tales about eating something particular or anything like that? Just wondering.
