Try #3

Today is CD14 and guess what we got this morning?! A smiley face on the OPK!! We did it! Our insemination was at 10 this morning but first let me back up and tell yall about yesterday.

Yesterday was CD13 and there was no smiley face to be found. I called the RE's office to see what we should do if we got smiley on Saturday (today) because we usually go in the following morning for the IUI but they are closed on Sundays and waiting til Monday would be out of the question. So I left my name & number and that I needed some info on an upcoming IUI. I was told a nurse would call me back. She did. I explained to the nurse that I was hoping to get a positive OPK in the next few days and what should I do if it happened Saturday morning. Here's the funny part. Her answer was "Well after you get the positive OPK, I suggest you and your husband have intercourse." And in the same breath she said "unless your husband has a low sperm count and in that case......." I cut her off there and said "Well since I'm a lesbian it's going to be kinda hard to have intercourse with my husband". I laughed and said "If it were only that easy". LOL She couldn't stop appologizing. LOL Obviously she didn't have my chart in front of her. We both got on the same page and she said to test as early as possible Saturday morning and if we got a positive to call the answering service and asked for the on call doc to be paged.

Ok...that's do-able.

So last night(Friday night), I tested for the second time....around 6 pm and got a negative.

This morning(Saturday) I tested at 6 am and got the smiley face we had been waiting on. I called the answering service and they paged the doc. He called back about 10 minutes later and still half asleep. His response to me telling him that I had a positive OPK was "ok, so go ahead and have intercourse with your husband.....". UGH!! Dudes! I don't have a husband! I again had to explain the whole "no husband....I'm a lesbian" story. Then he proceeds to tell me that he knows for a fact that the office is booked for today. Then I guess he realizes that it HAS to be done today...that we can't wait til Monday....and says that he will do some schedule rearranging when he gets in the office at 8 am and to expect a phone call shortly there after. I went back to bed and the phone rang at about 820 am. The doc said to come on in at 10 am. M and I got up, ate, showered and hit the road. The insemination took place around 1025 or so. No pain. No discomfort. We waited our mandatory 15 minutes with my legs crossed...until the timer went off and then we hit the road.

Let the TWW begin!!

And yes, of course, we took pics.

Here's M with the swimmers....

Good luck with this try :) I used to pass that Bloom store in Norfolk on my way home -- not sure if it's a chain -- but it made me think of (and miss terribly) VA.

Good luck :)
