thanks b&c for starting this...sending lots of great thoughts your way.
good luck manada & healz! i'll be crossing my fingers that they see that you timed it perfectly!! SO exciting!
mollykelley - my wife does the insem too, for some reason, i seriously love that she gets to do it....and as for those 30 minutes, the first time the MW left us alone - she told us we better make good use of it! ;) haha! she is an older, grandmotherly woman and between that and telling us i had better "get it on" later that day, i thought i would die!
as i have said on a couple of of the other threads, we are in the tww...we did our 3rd iui in 4 cycles this weekend. i seriously go back and forth - from super positive to down in the dumps that it'll never be us. my wife is so great - and when i texted her today about (yet another) pregnancy announcement, she said "it's okay to be upset, our time will come soon---maybe even this month ;)" she is the best, and i try to remember that even though it is my body going through this, we are both so excited and both super bummed when we get a bfn.
we are just really ready to be moms and so excited for it...okay, when i say ready, i mean as ready as we are going to be now. we decided to not wait until we bought our own home since we don't know how long this process is going to take - and we just had a very big self-funded wedding this spring, but other than that i think that we're ready - and once we can stop paying $$$$$ for sperm and iuis, we'll be banking like crazy for that little home for our family :)
question for you ladies? is it standard practice to find out the numbers in the vial? we've never been told.
