Good News!

I went to the doctor today for one last ultrasound praying that everything would be ok so we can go ahead with the IUI tomorrow, and for once everything is perfect. I actually have a good uterine lining and 2 eggs ready to go and I was so excited that I didn't have to pay for more meds this time. So I got shot up and we'll be headed in tomorrow for the procedure. I'm praying it works this time. I don't have enough money to try this again anytime soon. We can use all the prayers we can get! Wish us luck!

Finally got some good news!

So today was filled with more tests for me and my husband this time, and for once we both got good results. They did a sperm count on the hubby and his numbers were much more than good they were fantastic, like almost twice as good as they hoped they would be. Then came my tests, they were doing a hystogram, one of the few tests I haven't had run before. This consists of having saline run up through ones uterus and fallopian tubes while doing an ultrasound. This is done to check for polyps, fibroids, and blocked tubes. As per usual I totally expected something bad to show up, and I was pleasantly surprised when I was informed I had neither fibroids or polyps and apparently my fallopian tubes are amazingly clear, they seemed surprised at how fast the saline went right through me. Also he thinks we are going to get 2 eggs out of this cycle, with a slight possibility of 3, but my uterine lining is also looking good and that is totally a first! I go back for another ultrasound Tuesday and hopefully a nice big shot of HCG followed by an IUI either Wednesday or Thursday. I'm praying it works this time because we do not have the money to try this again anytime soon unless I want to start running up a few more credit card bills and I'd really like to avoid that. Wish us luck!

So first off, I chopped of the tip of my finger (lucky me!) thankfully no bone, they couldn't sew it back on, but it seems to be healing do that's good. Now on to the baby stuff. I went to the doctor on day 38. This time I actually had quite a thick uterine lining, but a negative pregnancy test. So he put me on progesterone to try and bring my period on, I'm on day 6 of that and still no period. I'm debating another pregnancy test. Anyways, if I ever do get this dang period then we are starting the Femara again and making another go around of the IUI. In the meantime I'm playing with my little stinker that refuses to go to sleep. He's just too darn cute and I can't seem to put him back down.
