    Since having my legs up and a probe is inserted almost weekly, don't you ever wonder, this has to be the last time. We are Stirrup Queens!

    I found this stunning blirp over the weekend in an article I was reading:

    In the meantime friends continued to get pregnant, and their gleeful news – these days emblazoned all over social media networks – is unutterably difficult to witness. You acquire a poker face when friends ask how things are going. I learned early on that when they inquire, they’re not actually that interested in the answer. If they’re fortunate enough to be a mother, it is awkward for them if you dare share the feelings of longing and inadequacy that dog you through fertility investigations. If they are staunchly child-free, then any talk that is too emotional or sentimental compels them to change the subject.

    Peace to my TTC friends.

    For me, I'm on CD 9, exhausted and ready for IUI on Friday and 7 days in Mexico on Saturday with my hubby.

    Thank you.

    Doc gave me promethium, rather than progesterone suppositories, to prevent a melting mess in the heat. Hope they work just the same!

    We are back from our trip. It was truly wonderful, its amazing how beautiful and majestic the warm mexican riviera is when you live on a frozen tundra! It was the best 2WW i have ever had. Its been 10 days since the IUI. Not sure when I will test, still feel like im in vacation mode. But im sure POAS sydrome will hit me like a ton of bricks really soon. I have felt crampy and very sore tender breasts. Which is common with the progesterone. Fingers crossed.

    For those of you who have M/C in the past. I feel somewhat robbed of the pure excitiment of a BFP, they will never be the same after those losses. I want one so bad, but Im so scared to lose another.

    Surviving the battle,
    Cassy

    Lost the POAS battle, I'm testing in the morning. I found a ER under the sink, can't pass up using it! Fingers crossed! Tomorrow will be 13 DPO.
