The end of a perfect weekend

Well, it had to come to an end at some point, right? 

It was 70 and sunny on Saturday. A beautiful spring day in the mountains. I was celebrating my BBT dip that had occured the day before, because it had shot back up even higher that morning. We had a day packed full of activity, I was surely pregnant, and it was officially spring.

Then yesterday my waking body temperature plummetted, as did the outdoor temperature. It poured rain all day, and I sat on the couch with a heating pad. Aunt Flo had arrived, and she seemed kinda pissed off.

Now today it is snowing. I have an appointment for a wanding and bloodwork tomorrow morning and barring any FSH disasters I will be injecting drugs by Friday. Things change quickly around these parts.

I’m a little apprehensive to be moving back into IUI. Mostly of the whole multiples thing. Twins don’t scare me much, triplets make me queasy, but then there is the idea of four, five, or six and I think I may pass out. After all, isn’t IUI with injectibles how TLC gets most of it’s giant family reality shows?

My RE has said that if it looks like I am going to release 4 or more eggs we will convert to an IVF. I reassure myself that up to this point, my problem hasn’t been abundance. I have had an actual embryo in my body (maybe more then one over the years) that didn’t stick around. I only made 2 good eggs from 10 follicles during IVF. Really, why should this be the moment that I get pregnant with higher order multiples?

Because I believe my body does know how to make a baby, but it is stubborn and insists on screwing things up whenever possible. I guess I believe that it will say “Oh… you want a BABY. I thought you said DAISY. Well then, here’s six!”

But, I’ll cross that bridge when I come to it… For now I just need to get through tomorrow.

    So sorry your weekend ended like that 😦

    I’ll cross my fingers that you only get pregnant with one or two – not six!

    Sun. Rain. Snow. Talk about messing with one’s natural barometer:)

    But you’re on your way! Your RE sounds like a man who makes smart decisions. And here’s hoping for one (maybe two). And no phone calls from TLC:)

    My doctor won’t continue with the IUI if there are too many follicles, so I won’t worry about doing your hair for your reality show just yet!

After 5 IUIs, 2 IVFs, and the diagnosis of diminished ovarian reserve at the ripe old age of 29, I am now looking for information on embryo donation and adoption. I'm taking a break from blogging but will return when our path out of the world of IF becomes more clear.
