It's so funny writing those initials because I never thought that I would get here, but here I am 1 day past IUI and 2 days into my 5 days of pineapple core smoothies.  We'll see how it goes.  I'm trying to be hopeful/optimistic this month, but it's kinda hard because I'm pretty sure we missed ovulation with the IUI.  We BD'd before though so our bases were covered, but I think I would be feeling a lot better if we had done the IUI on Saturday.  Now, I'm just trying to get over that, "Augh, I should've done that" feeling and move on.  CJ is on board with another IUI.  I think he's so please with himself and his sperm count that he's willing to do it all again.  lol.

I'm back on-call and trying to get some work done, but I just keep googling IUI, femara, BFP, Pineapple core, etc.  Either that or shopping online.  17 more hours until I can go home and sleep and I can't wait!!

Oh yeah and I lost a follower today, which kinda makes me sad.  I was hovering at 22 and now I'm down to 21.  I hope you all don't leave because it's been so helpful and awesome to read your comments!!


  1. Yay for your first IUI. It was my golden ticket in 2008. I may need it again this year, since I've failed 2 medicated timed intercourse cycles. Boo! Baby dust to you!

  2. thinking of you!!!!! big hugs! and ur not losing this follower.. u know i got yo back girl! =)

  3. Try not to beat yourself up over the timing of IUI. If your DH's sperm count was great at the time of IUI, it was very likely as great when you did you BDing. I am keeping my fingers crossed for you.

    By the way, I also lost a follower, people come and go as their personal circumstances change. I, for example, don't comment much, but do read all the posts, and will continue following you to your BFP and the birth of your baby. :)

  4. Congrats on your first IUI. I am hoping it is successful. Don't worry about the timing, your RE knows what he/she is doing. It sounds like you covered your bases anyway : )

    Hoping for great news in 2 weeks!

  5. Hi... here from ICLW :) I am also going through infertility treatment after our little daughter was stillborn 18 months ago, as well as miscarriages... this is certainly a nightmare of a journey isn't it ? I'm so sorry to hear about your loss. I work as a doctor too... and long hours certainly doesn't help with the stress of TCC !! I have a private blog at but happy for other blogging IF/BLMs to have access :) Looking forward to sharing this journey with you xoxo
