Little Swimmers on the Way!

So this is way more exciting to us than probably to anyone else but we ordered our sperm for our upcoming insemination!  I have been looking through profiles on our sperm bank for the last two months as we can't use the same donor for #2 as we did for Jude (all out at the bank).  I had it narrowed down to 4 and last night we picked one and ordered two IUI vials.  Man, the price of sperm sure did go up!  

Our first IUI won't be for another two or three weeks yet, but our lovely doctor lets us store our vials at the office for free, so no reason not to go ahead and order.  Cross your fingers though that we are able to do our Feburary insemination though.  When we got S's bloodwork back a little bit ago it showed that her thyroid levels were at 3 and our doctor likes to see it at or below 2.5.  So she went the next day to get her thyroid meds adjusted to bring it down that tiny bit.  The problem is that it takes about 4-6 weeks to really see the number change.  Four weeks from when she adjusted her meds put us about three or four days past ovulation, unfortunately.  We are crossing our fingers that the adjustment is enough to get us where we need to be and also that we can get our doctor to allow for her to get the levels pulled a few days before ovulation to check it.  So Feburary is possibly a maybe, we will have to wait and see.

In other news, our sweet little baby turns 3 in less than two weeks.  Wow, so crazy.  We are having a little birthday party at our house for him.  For months now he has been telling us very specifically that he wants "Lightning McQueen cupcakes" for his birthday.  So today while he was at his Mother's Day out program I went to Party City and bought pretty much everything Cars/Lightning McQueen related and a sweet friend has offered to make the requested cupcakes.  He is going to freak out when he sees it all, I can't wait!

A few pics of my cutie!

  1. I've been slacking on my blogroll, but I'm so excited for you to TTC #2 and for that sweet boy of yours to become a big brother! Here's hoping everything is ready in time to try next month!
