Well, IUI number six was a bust. I can't believe that not one of the 50 million swimmers could hit one of my three eggs. I mean, it seems like there should be pretty good odds, right?!?! I know the doctor said it only increased our odds by 2-3% (from 10% up to 12-13%), but I guess I still had a lot of hope. I know this IUI was timed correctly and I know others were not, so I thought that might give us more of a chance.
What makes this so much worse is that this month marks the two year anniversary of TTC. I NEVER thought it would take this long. In fact, I thought we'd be thinking about number two right now. Sometimes it feels like this will never happen. I don't know what to do... we can't do IVF until the spring. DH and I agreed to exhaust all other options before we did IVF. So, we'll probably be looking at that in the spring and continue doing injectables until then. I have an appointment on Wednesday to get this cycle started.
This week is not going to be fun. Saturday I'm supposed to have a girls' night. We get together every few months with just the girls. Only now everyone has babies. Two girls will be bringing their newborns and the others are bringing infants. It is literally all they talk about. I'm not sure where I fit in anymore. Maybe I'll play sick. =)
Anyway, thanks for "listening."
