IUI #6


Thank you for the comments yesterday! I hope you are all correct!

Today's IUI was a little different than yesterday's. For the first time, that I can remember, they couldn't pin my cervix down with the speculum. The nurse had to insert it six times before she could get it in right. After that it was smooth sailing.

When I walked into the office, the nurse asked if I would allow a nursing student to come in and watch. I said sure, I'm all about the education, but when she was fighting with my cervix, the student just made me nervous. I can't put a finger on why, but her stare was unnerving, like she was judging me. I shouldn't care what some 22 year old thinks, but I am fortunately/unfortunately one of those people who cares how I am perceived. I simply do not want to let the world down.

I've been taking half the day off for the last few days to reduce my stress levels. It really seems to be working however I'm getting BORED!! I don't know why having nothing to do freaks me out so much but it does so this weekend I think I am going to redecorate my bedroom. This decision was also partially brought on by the fact that my dear sweet canine friend, Cooper, has decided to chew the corners of my comforter off. It's his only bad habit (Not bad for a nearly 2 year old lab), other than that he's an angel.

Redecorating your bedroom will be a good diversion during your 2ww...keeping my fingers crossed for you & sending positive thoughts & prayers your way.

Good luck! You are doubly PUPO now.

You're braver than I am. I don't think I could have a student in the room judging my cervix! Heck, my mother barely got to take that spot!

Congratulations on being PUPO!

I agree - redecorating is a great distraction during the 2ww! Be sure to take before and after pictures, and then share with us.
