A Tuesday Tale


July is here.  And with it, comes hope.
Lots and lots of it.
Sunday, Steve and I headed to our appointment nice n' early and were glad to see all my eggs were still there, growing big and strong.
If you look closely, you can see a couple of them on the screen.


We talked to our doctor about where the week would take us and
 left with instructions to trigger at 6 p.m.
with an IUI to follow on Tuesday.
But my bloodwork came in later that afternoon and showed I was surging .  My eggs were ready to release on Monday. 
 Again, there was no need to trigger. (Sounds good to me!)
Monday would be the day.




Sunday was a 99999 joyful day. ("99999" was Muffin's contribution to this post.  She just pranced across my keyboard.)  We made the most of it.  It being, a mix of productive and carefree.
We just happened to be minutes away from a fabulous little diner...one of my old favorites.
And we also just happened to be minutes away from a few of the offices I clean.
So, after a round of omelets, I put my positive energy into some heavy dusting and vacuuming while Steve kindly tagged along.
And after, I rewarded him with a little surprise...
A trip to the movies.
To see the movie I swore I would never ever go to see - Ted.  Yes, the one with the vulgar and lewd teddy bear that is best friends with Mark Wahlberg. Steve went on and on all week about how everyone at work said it was so good and how badly he wanted to see it.  Did I trust that it was good? No.  But,
I love to see Steve happy.  It makes me happy.  So, we loaded my purse with candy from 5 Below and headed over.
It was vulgar. But, I laughed a lot.  And, I even cried a little...yes, of course, I did.  I told you I cry at everything. Don't judge.
 At least I can pretend to blame it on the hormones. 


Monday, I woke up early.  I took a long shower.  Got ready.  And prayed.  
 I left the house with confidence. 



I sat in my car, overcome with emotion
and ready to kick tush at our IUI.


We sat in the waiting room for almost an hour as our swimmies were a little late being delivered.
But, it didn't matter.
Just like in April,
it was perfect timing...
Our ultrasound showed that 2 eggs had released earlier in the morning.  One was literally making its way out.  And the other two were on their way.
I felt that giddiness again. 
And I'm so happy we're here...not losing hope. Keeping that faith alive. <3


Steve took a quickie video afterwards while I got dressed. *Don't worry, it's just my head. :)

And the wait begins...
My day was made complete with a long, chatty-ful lunch and the company of my girl, Jessica.
Have a HAPPY 4th of July, friends!
Stay cool. <3
I'll be back with more from the past weekend in my next post.

Thank you for the July the 4th wishes. Same to you my dear. It is SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO very hot here. We haven't had one day under 100 since last Wednesday so I have been inside the entire time. It has been a very long month being indoors. I am headed to an outdoor birthday party for a very important 1 year old this weekend though. Probably won't stay long, but at least I will be outside.

Praying for you always my dear. I am so praying that this cycle happens and sticks. I can't even try to imagine what you are feeling, but know that I am here if you need me and I will be saying all sorts of prayers for you. Love you guys!!!

This all sounds so promising. I'll be thinking of you two over the next couple weeks and sending many prayers and positive vibes your way!

I really want to see Ted. The more I hear people say how funny it is, the more I want to see it. I just need to convince dear old husband first!

Kari said...

So so excited for you!!!

Jon and I went to see Ted this weekend (not by my choice). It was...something else. I just couldn't get over the unrealistic principle of it all. Hello! This damn bear is alive..and has sex with singers apparently? What the crap? I laughed but I spent more of the movie face palming. :)

Kim said...

I have every crossable crossed for you!!!

I hope you have a great 4th!

Kiara Buechler said...

Oh my goodness these next two weeks are going to go soooo slow waiting to find out the news. EEEEK!

Natasha said...

Oh, my hope is strong for you! Prayers going your way over the next couple weeks!
Blessings,
Natasha

KERRY said...

Yay!! All sounds great so far, thinking of you and hoping for you both!!

I don't want to see that movie, but I am glad Steve enjoyed it and with a bag full of treats!! Yummo :)
Fingers crossed for you my friend xo
P.S. Have a great week and a fantastic Independence Day!!

I am so proud of you for not loosing your hope! How freaking inspiring you are! Sounds like it was awesome timing, fingers and toes crossed and prayers said.
And my hubby went to see Ted with one of his buddies this weekend. I was a little jealous...not gonna lie, I love raunchy every once in a while. lol. hope you have an amazing Wednesday and 4th!
~Angela
P.S. My daughter saw your profile pic and said "awe she's beautiful!" then she saw the pic at the beginning of this post and says "awe, she's silly too!"

MrsV said...

WHOAH!!!
I'm actually on my computer for once so I thought I would play your video and when I turned my speakers on I jumped probably a good foot in the air because of your playlist!!! LMAO I didnt realize there was music playing because on my ipad I cant hear it.
Ok now that my heart is no longer pounding a mile a minute ( I cant believe how much that startled me lol)
Im super exited for you guys! Like you said the timing is just perfect and a day sooner than you originally thought :) now come on spermies catch yourself some eggs (or even just one egg lol)
Hopefully these next couple weeks fly by for you and you have more happy news to report!

Happy Fourth of July!

OMG 5 EGGS?! 5!? I just got done reading your last post, and this one. I am so excited right now! I have a really good feeling about this Maria! And you know what?! I feel like July 3rd is a very lucky day, because it's the day my daughter was born.
You are so beautiful, and so amazing. I am so proud of you and Steve, after all that you have endured, you keep on trying. You guys are incredible my dear! You will both stay in my prayers as always... and Haven and I are sending you tons and tons of sticky baby dust!
Enjoy your holiday weekend <3

I am a little late here, just catchingup. Fingers crossed for you! Hoping the next posts are happy ones:)) We saw Ted this past weekend. I had to see after hearing everyone talk about how funny it was. It was pretty darn funny but the funniest I have seen like a lot of peeps said. We will probably be buying it when it comes out on DVD:))
