Third Time’s the Charm!

Tuesday, May 8th, 2012.  CD15, 1DPIUI.

Yesterday was my third IUI.

Yesterday, about thirty people said to me “Third time’s the charm!”.

I know they meant well, but jeeeeez.

Also, I hope they’re right!

The IUI went like usual, fairly quick and without incident.  A doctor actually performed this IUI, which was different than the other two that were performed by nurses.  So hey, maybe he had the magic touch!

The husband’s numbers were good, as well.  Not as mind-blowingly spectacular as last cycle, but still impressive according to the doctor.

I laid there for the obligatory 20 minutes, alternately praying and Facebooking, and when my time was up I headed home.

Well… I made a side trip to Ikea.  But then I went home.  🙂

I took the day off yesterday, and spent the whole afternoon lounging in bed, eating yummy foods, reading, and clearing crap TV off the DVR.  It was a good day.

Another amazing thing happened yesterday, too:  My newest honorary-niece, Mallory Ann, was born.  I haven’t met her yet, but I already love her.  The husband and I are taking a 5 hour trip out to meet her this weekend, and I couldn’t be more excited!

I feel like that is a good omen for my IUI cycle.  The birth of a beloved baby on the day of insemination MUST be a sign!  Her father’s birthday is also on our wedding anniversary, so it only makes sense, right?  Also, a good friend’s son turned two yesterday, and someone wonderful that I follow online finally got her BFP yesterday!  Oh, and yesterday was the seventh, which is a lucky number!

All of these things are the type of happy news that give me hope for this cycle…

Little Mallory’s birth also brings in the season of the babies in our household.  We have twin nephews due in June, and another honorary-niece or -nephew due at the end of the summer.  It will be a busy few months on the baby front, and I am hopeful that I’ll be able to continue that trend with a baby of my own in the New Year.

Sometimes it still stings, realizing that I will turn 32 this year, and have no baby of my own.  I really thought I’d be done by now!  I suppose God has other plans, and I’m trying to be patient and accept that.

It ain’t always easy, but it always brings me peace to know that God has a plan.

May you all have a peaceful week, too.  🙂

    That’s great that a doctor did the IUI. I’ve read that it really does take technique, finesse and experience to do it right.

    And don’t forget the planets being aligned and the SUPER MOON on the night of your trigger!

      (Don’t cross your legs though… you’ll never get pregnant like that.)

      Thanks, Shelley! I hope this is it… I am trying really hard to keep a positive outlook, but it gets harder and hard with each failed attempt.

      The lucky signs keep me going, whether they’re silly or not! 🙂

    Oh! AND I just found out that my boss’ potentially life-changing procedure that happened Monday was a total success! She is now able to live her life normally, and is a happy, pain-free woman. 🙂

    Good things come in bunches… right??

    Thinking of you!! I don’t necessarily think there is a plan, and that sometimes things just happen (or don’t…but eventually do 🙂 ) – but I am glad the idea brings you peace. We all need peace.
