Back in the Stirrups

I’ve spoken to my nurse and we’re on to IUI #2.  Basically the same protocol as last month and this is the overall map of what I’m doing:

  • March/April/May = unmedicated IUI’s with trigger shots
  • June/July/August = IUI w/ drugs, probably Clomid and trigger
  • After August = Gimme the hard drugs, we’re going IVF baby!
I have a lot to be thankful for and I now need to remind myself of at least 10 good things (not necessarily in order of importance):
  1. My body is working; I have regular periods and I ovulate regularly.  
  2. Dr. VID says I have a perfect uterus.  
  3. I am in excellent health.  
  4. I walk to work and back and am thankful my legs and feet carry me without fail for one hour every single day.  
  5. I eat a healthy, mostly organic diet.  
  6. My insurance policy that is (so far) covering this.
  7. Many wonderful friends and family members who support me and care about me.  
  8. A good job that isn’t the most fulfilling but at least doesn’t make me miserable and best of all provides me with a great deal of flexibility.
  9. Three cats that love me as soon as I walk in the door every single day!
  10. My partner, because I cannot imagine doing this without K.
That’s my pep talk to myself.  It’s back in the stirrups folks!
