Rain Is A Good Thing





"Rain Is A Good Thing" - Luke Bryan



It was really tough to find a song to compliment this post.
Especially when it has to do alot with these guys...
Ok, these are lights that are in one of the offices I clean...but you can't tell me they don't remind you of something...or maybe 2 things...
when I was vacuuming yesterday, I looked up and these were pointing down at me. It's funny how alot of this week revolves around...
Yes, I will say it...
SPERM
*and you know what the 2nd thing is, that those lights look like ;)


*and as for this song...it has nothing to do with the post, I just love to make fun of it (sorry mr luke bryan) I don't care for it @ all but when it comes on, I leave it on, and do a little jig, usually to serenade and annoy Steve when we're in the car...hey, I LOVE COUNTRYbut does he really say, "Rain makes corn, corn makes whiskey
Whiskey makes my baby feel a little frisky"

Yes, he does...
and I lol when he says, "washin" because it sounds like "warshin"...

I can't think of one song that has to do with sperm...but if you know one, whoaa...i'd sure love to hear it hahaha

I am happy to report that our doctor's appointment on Monday went well and there were no photos taken of anything but my follicle. :)
Yes, only one egg now...the 2nd one stopped growing. I wasn't too upset because I didn't ever expect there to be more than one in the first place, but it would have been nice if that 2nd one would have stuck around. They did blood work and my follicle measured at 21. They called me back later with results to let me know when our IUI would be. Isn't it amazing that from blood and a photo, they know exactly what day that lil' sucker is going to release?! They said Wednesday will be our day! Hooray for today!

I had to laugh when we were in the waiting room on Monday and this magazine was laying right in front of me. My girl, Shania, from my last post! ha!
Aww, thanks for the support, Shania!

Blanket and I...(my former wiping friend)

When we do IUI, I always get a little anxious the day before. Our doctor always tells us to not have sex the day before so Steve can be "extra strong" for the day of IUI. They've run all the sperm tests plenty of times before. Where there is a problem with the inversion being carried in the DNA, which of course is in his sperm...he has great motility, count and whatnot. So when doing IUI, I alot of times feel like, "wait, shouldn't we do it on the day before since it is supposedly one of my most fertile days?" Our doctor always reassures me that if we take care of business on the days prior, and "seal the deal" as he always says, the night of the IUI, we are good to go. Because from our fertile days before ovulation, those little guys can last up to 3 days with their quality and if the right stuff is going on in my body. I'm not going to lie, a part of me wanted to go behind my doctor's back and sneak in a quickie today. I even waited for Steve to come home from work and tried to seduce him with my dirty cleaning clothes, unwashed hair and greasy face. Needless to say, it didn't work! :) Steve told me we needed a break, to listen to our dr and he was sure there were plenty of em' having a party inside me.

My Dr told us we didn't need to use anymore ovulation tests as he had done the job of detecting for us. But when I was in the bathroom this afternoon, those sticks were just staring back at me, begging me to take a tinkle and give em a dip. (I pee in a cup and dip...I'm too splashy to pee on them)

And so I did...
the bottom one is today's. the left line is so much darker than the previous day and darker than the control line...which means, "get it on girl...you have 48 hrs to get busy"...

If you haven't noticed, all this stuff will make you crazy, or in my case, crazier. I actually have a journal in my bathroom, that when taking a bath, I write out the days and times we did the deed and then add and subtract the hours from the day of ovulation...to see how many hours are in between them and the egg release...
me is psycho. :)

I'd like to hope we have about 3 separate parties hanging out in my uterus already. Hopefully, alot are still awake and dancing to this tune, ready for action later! I am feeling extra twingey and crampy on my left side and have been for the past few hours. A sure sign, the egg's about to hatch.

As I mentioned, feelings of craziness earlier...
fertility issues will sure make for a truly interesting, wacky life. I find myself, who am already a very open person, talking about my day to my loved ones and that voice inside my head, thinking, "wow, is this really happening?" sometimes...
sometimes, you just have to laugh...because there are going to be days you will cry, you will get mad, and then you will cry some more...
As we were minutes from leaving the dr's on Monday, he asks us if we have a "specimen cup"...we say, no...and he says, "now you do!" with a big grin on his face. He is so funny. He makes us feel comfortable and laugh so much.

well, here it is...the specimen cup...

This cup has a way of bringing on some anxiety. You have an hour to get it to the office and with the appointment set, timing on the man's part is crucial. I really do have sympathy for the husbands when it comes to the process. I've mentioned in other posts, how much we've come to terms with the fact that this is the way it is. It really doesn't bother me, because when I look at the big picture and know somehow, someday, this all will have a picture of our family staring back at us...nothing else matters. We have plenty times of romance, we are deeply in love no matter what...and if Steve has to take care of business while I hide downstairs and watch the clock ticking...then so be it.

It's just funny to me, how I thought after our wedding, "ooo we will go on our honeymoon, there will be wine, flowers, sunsets, bubble baths and lots of baby makin lovin'...and boom, we'll have a baby"...

I thought wrong!!

I remember the day of our first IUI, in January. I'm pacing back and forth downstairs...Steve running down the steps, "Ok, baby...let's get a move on"...as we're 30 minutes away from the office. He hands me the cup and tells me my coat is warmer and to keep it in my pocket. HAHA! He had to get to work after so we drove separately and I'm driving pretty quickly, thinking to myself..."please, please don't let me get pulled over"...because I totally would have told that cop, "Look buddy, I have a cup of my husband's stuff in my pocket and unless you know how to perform an IUI, you better let me go!"...

When we arrive, the Rn always calls us back and whispers, "do you have the goods?" ha! I laughed so hard at our first IUI. I go to pull the cup out of my pocket and hand it to her, and Steve had wrapped a festive penguin paper towel over the cup...and the Rn just smirked and winked at me.

O the joy of it all! I am glad for these light hearted days...because I know and feel tougher days ahead. I feel emotions creeping up on us. I know of course, this is obvious...but I REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY HOPE WE FALL PREGNANT THIS TIME! Every time is different with how I deal with it all, including my emotions...and my heart is begging and pleading for that egg to catch one of those guys...one of the strong guys...to be the right match for once, despite the inversion. Gimme that BABY...please o please!

Hey, this song is good for something...
maybe Steve and I will take his advice and relive this song later...
KIDDING"Ain't nothin' like a kiss out back in the barn
Wringin' out our soakin' clothes, ridin' out a thunderstorm
When tin roof gets to talkin'; that's the best love we made
Yea where I come from, rain is a good thing"

Happy Wednesday Hump Day everybody!!

Ladies, All of you are in my thoughts and prayers as you take on your journeys! When things get tough, "start washin' warshin' all your worries down the drain"...



Gotta run...I've got an egg to catch!
and prayers to pray

Lots of Love,
Maria <3
