About Me

Welcome to my blog! Me and DH are 27. We met at the end of our senior year in High School and married three years later on June 25 2005. We have been TTC for over 3 years. Now we are expecting twins in June. I hope to encourage and be encouraged through our journey.

Today officially starts my TWW. This morning for our 2nd IUI things went good. DH had 26 million swimmers post wash. She said those were still excellent numbers! Woo Hoo

Have you ever sat down and thought about the entire process that we go through just to become pregnant and what a miracle it all is? I have and man GOD is great.

IUI #1 down, one to go

This morning went great. DH had 119 million total and 35.5 million grade A swimmers post wash. The Nurse said those were the best numbers she has seen. WOO HOO go hubby!! He asked the nurse if he at least got a sucker on his way out. She just laughed and said nope. It's good to have someone like him with something so silly to ease the mood. We laughed about other things and had a good time.

Up next...the TWW. Maybe with planning my sisters BABY SHOWER, time will go by quickly.

Back from the RE

Friday I went to the RE. I have 3 follies on the right and none on the left. They were measuring between 12 and 14. This morning when I left, 2 were measuring 18 and the other one 14. I am waiting on my BW work to come back to see if I will trigger tonight or tomorrow. Then back to back IUI's.

I also had my first acupuncture appt Friday. I think I'm the type of person who thinks into things way to much. I was a tiny bit nervous when I showed up. He started out with a few in my feet and legs then worked up to my stomach. He placed one in between my eyes and a few in my head and some in my arms. By this point I was ok with them. None had really hurt and most of them I didn't feel. Then came two in both of my ears, they stung pretty bad but not unbearable. After he told me night night and left the room the one in the top of my left ear started hurting. Like a small throbbing pain. So then of course I couldn't relax at all. I was concentrating on the pain the entire time. After he came back he asked how I felt, I explained to him about my ear, he said that was a point for my uterus. So not a 100% sure what he meant about that. Then once he took one of the needles out of my stomach it bruised pretty bad and was extremely sore the next 2 days. He said something about me eating sugar and having lots of heat.

Today I went back for another appt. This time he placed a few in my legs and arms, and around 20 in my back. After that he hooked me up to the machine that sends electrical impulses. It didn't hurt but it wasn't relaxing at all. After the 30 minutes he took them out and made me lay on my back. He then proceeded to stick the longest needle EVER in my stomach. OMGoodness it was sooooo painful. It felt like he was twisting and turning it. I told him that it hurt pretty bad and he said it was because he was touching my uterus. WHAT?!?!?

I know a bunch of people have told me they loved it but I'm still waiting for the jury to come back. I don't know if this is normal or what but if so I don't think I wanna go back. Have any of you experienced what I described or should I find another doctor to go to?

So tomorrow morning at 9 I have a regular doctors appt to see how many follies I have and how big they are. Then at 3:00pm I go to my first acupuncture session. I'm a little nervous and excited at the same time. Mrs. Hammer at http://maybeitsallinmyhead.blogspot.com/ gave me some info on it (Thanks!!). I'm a little less nervous now but I did read on another blog how it hurt and nothing about it helped her relax, if anything it stressed her out seeing all the needles. I really do need to stop searching the Internet for things until after I have it done.

Before I went in to have the HSG test my doctor told me not to read about it on the Internet. Just that comment alone freaked me out a little. I took his advice (it took everything in me not to google it). I'm sooooooo glad I did. The Internet made it sound horrible. My experience was nothing more than a routine pap smear. Nothing about it was painful.

Oh and one more thing, just to show how GOD has a sense of humor. My girlfriend who is pregnant found out she was having a little boy a couple months ago. She went back to the OB Monday and they told her she's having a GIRL.

AC @ work is out.....

So this morning when I showed up for work our ac was out. After three long hours we finally got it running. It isn't fixed completely but for now it's working. I just hope one of those wonderful hot flashes doesn't creep up on me. Last cycle I took Clomid this time I'm taking Femara and the hot flashes are worse. It may sound like complaints but I'm up for anything if it leads to a BFP!!

Much needed vacation....

DH and I had a much needed vacation. We drove to Colorado and stayed for the week. The weather is AWESOME! especially compared to Texas heat. It was our first time going there and we loved it. We are already talking about when we will be able to go back.

So yesterday I went back to the doctor. CD1 BW and U/S. During the U/S she saw the same stupid cyst that was there from 3 weeks ago, even after being on the BC for so long. She said more than likely he would put me on a different BC for another two weeks and see how I respond to that. She said she would call me and let me know how the labs turned out. Well great news my estrogen was extremely low so the cyst isn't active and we can start the medicine on Friday. Woo Hoo! I'm not talking cloimd this round since I didn't do well on it last time. So we will see.
