Allergic to Sperm?

Probably not, but S is sick and it seems like every time we do an IUI she gets sick immediately after.  Probably just a combo of living in Austin where allergies are crazy for everyone along with having a germy 3 1/2 year old in the house.  Jude was sick earlier this week so we think that is the bug S caught but hopefully she will be feeling better tomorrow.  He was only really sick for like a day but has a little cough and is super tired and has been all week.  In fact it is 7:30 on a Friday night and both my babies are already asleep in bed.  Fingers crossed at least I avoid it.

In pregnancy news, no news.  S has felt bloated and weird all week but it's hard to tell if it is anything other than the progesterone she is taking combined with being sick.  I feel good about this try being "the one" but of course that doesn't mean anything.  So keep thinking those sticky baby thoughts with me!


  1. Hope she's feeling better and fingers crossed this is the one!

  2. Kris got ill after every attempt too and we eventually found out that she was in fact having a reaction to the sperm. The doctor said she was creating "hostile mucus" to protect her immune system from the "invasion" of the sperm into her body. So I am not sure if your title was said as a joke, but the occurrence is REAL!!! Hope S is feeling better and pregnant ;)
