IUI Scheduled

It looks like I'll go in at 10:00. I couldn't stand the wait so finally called them again. Hopefully they get it done close to that time too - I felt like last time, I was there for over an hour before they actually did the IUI.

Oh well, I'm so neurotic in this entire process but timing is everything. We're also only doing the 1 IUI this month, opposed to 1 IVI and IUI. We felt our home method sucked (after about 7 or 8 of them) and we save about $400 in sperm cost.

Unfortunately, Mary won't be able to go with me which kind of sucks. But the boys' court case is today (also at 10). She doesn't have to actually go but she likes to, to make sure she's totally up-to-date. I went last time and felt it was not only pointless but very uncomfortable so opted out this time whether I was having the IUI or not.

The bio mother will have a chance to sign away her parental rights today though I think it's highly unlikely. The caseworker seems to think differently but she knows we want this process to be done so she sugar coats everything.

Anywho, time for me to get in some sort of meditative state before I'm poked and prodded. Oy.

I hear you on the neurosis!! I still haven't gotten my period and I am on day 33. Typically I range between 28-31 days. Uh oh, I hope nothings wrong. I hate that it is a tiny window, and the fertility clinic is so laid back about it. It drives me nuts! The are going to assist me this month, but I had to really bug them to get the help. I know that if I was doing a more expensive procedure like IVF they would be much more helpful (grrrr).

Maybe you are pregnant! you had a blood test right? not just pee?

Though i feel like ttc times always do weird things with my cycle.

Yeah, I was surprised with you going to a fertility clinic that they weren't more open to 2 IUIs. I guess it's all about the IVF with them.

I had the blood test. I don't know what the deal is. I did have sex w/Sweetness (he likes to have that doubt) right at the O, but he supposedly doesn't make any. Sigh...pathetic hope...
