Turtles and such...

I'm like that story about the tortoise and the hare...or whatever...

Slow and steady wins the race? Well, that's what I'm hoping for anyways :)

Everything is progressing slowly this cycle and I'm not going to take it as a bad thing. IUI is now scheduled for Thursday, not tomorrow. My three follies grew, but they are not quite there yet. My lining looks good and my Est a little more than doubled. Still a little uneasy about the est # because at this point last time it was twice as high. But I keep reminding myself that I didnt get pregnant with that cycle, so who knows! A not so perfect cycle might result in something wonderful! What does suck about the IUI shift to Thursday is my husband is going out of town for work overnight. He leaves Thursday morning and comes back Friday. Which means...he's going to have to do a drive-by with the "goods" and won't be able to be with me for the IUI. He's feels like a jerk not being able to be there, but I told him girls do this alone all the time and that I'll survive. I'm just thankful that the IUI will be Thursday and not Friday, when he wouldn't be around at all! Meaning, there would be no IUI. So it'll all be fine and work out :) When I told the nurse about him going out of town for work that day she laughed and said " Of course he does." Was pretty funny acutally, because that seems to happen all the time people. Timing is everything! I mean we had to drive through a blizzard to get to our first OB appt, so why wouldn't this be any less of a pain in the ass :)

I'm totally fine with being a turtle.

Did you know the sea turtle is a symbol of fertility? They lay like hundreds of eggs :)

The sea turtle huh? Sorta makes sense (except the hundreds of eggs part)....
Wishing you luck and lots of good egg wishes :)

We had an appointment that resulted in him waking up at 5 am to make his "deposit" that I had to take with me on the coldest day ever. I wrapped it in my bra to keep it warm. :) Awww, the memories.

Hoping there's a BFP soon for you!

Slow and steady is fine. Every cycle is different, and I'm sure your body knows what it's doing.

So relieved the timing will work out. Although not convenient, it's better than no IUI at all!!

It always seems like the less-than-perfect cycles are the ones that work. Isn’t that how life is sometimes? ;) I will be thinking about you on Thursday and hoping all goes well!
