IUI complete...

But I'm feeling like crap. Good thing I had today off to rest, because this IUI was a bit different. The first nurse couldn't get the speculum right, because she said my cervix was tilted? Hmmm. So she tried with three different ones and finally had to go get help. The next nurse has some trouble also, but finally got it! It's so much fun having a variety of people all up in my lady business. I don't think I'll ever be comfortable with that! But the IUI was extremely crampy and uncomfortable, but at least its over! And I'm not going to look into that as a bad sign that they had trouble! I'm just not. So, today I pretty much rested and tried to nap but was feeling really naucious for some reason. Some cramping too.

Now on to the 2ww and we'll find out the Tuesday before Thanksgiving! Yikes. I mean, YAYYY! :)

I'm kind of exhausted at pushing the "positive thoughts" thing on myself these last few cycles. So maybe I just won't think about it at all :) And get some great news in two weeks...

I'm not sure if I ever mentioned in my blog about my 911 "thing." I can try to explain but some of you might think I'm a wacko. Well, anyways, for years now I always seem to glance at the clock when it says 9:11. Morning or night. This doesn't happen all the time but it happens enough to sort of freak me out. And then I got thinking that maybe it means something. I'm a big "signs" person :) When we were on our honeymoon, right after the first IUI, the number of the condo we were staying at was 19111. So I thought maybe that was a good sign, turns out it wasn't. But a girl dream right? And then today I realized it's 11-9. Hmmmm. Technically "911" means an emergency and of course the date of the twin towers, but I guess I'm hoping my 911 "thing" has a happy meaning behind it...

We'll see :) Ok, back to the couch...

Here's hoping the struggles with the IUI are a good sign. A sign that you will be rewarded for all the discomfort with a BFP!! Also, I completely understand you 9:11 thing. I have the same thing only mine is 11:11. I'm secretly hoping we get pregnant and end up with a due date of 11/11/11 :) Best wishes and good luck on your tww.

I'm glad it went well. Maybe a tilted cervix will = everything stays in that needs to stay in = Thanksgiving baby announcements!

I'm a physician assistant so I do paps frequently. Sometimes a cervix shifts to a more tilted position which makes locating it tougher but won't decrease your chance of pregnancy. Good luck!!!

This is totally Hawaii related - I don't think I ever got to go to Ko'Olina. My friends and I went to Waikiki during the week or Alamoana (right by the huge mall). The beach was gross but it was really easy to get to from school. My favorite beach was Bellows Beach - not too far from Kailua. I also loved going up on the North Shore. I never made it to Hunama Bay (the snorkeling one!) and I don't know how I let that happen!

My boyfriend was at Schofield - but we didn't go on to the post/base (I never remember what to call them) much.

I miss that place (but not the guy) every single day. :)

I would have emailed all that to you..but it won't let me :( so sorry for the random long comment. I hope you're feeling better today!
