3 HPI

HPI? Hours past insemination people! It's never too early to start the countdown!

The deed is done. Finally! Talk about delays!!

I left the house at 10:15 this morning. My appointment was at 11:15. It's about a 45 minute drive so that should have been plenty of time right? WRONG! I cruise along for about 10 minutes and then STOP! I sat on the freaking interstate for 50 minutes! SAT! NOT moving! For 50 minutes! I finally got moving again at 11:05. That gave me 10 minutes to make a 35 minute drive.

Needless to say...I was late. I had several freak out moments! I called the doctors office ALOT! I said too many bad words. I blew up M's phone with text messages. I said alot of prayers. I thought of driving on the shoulder. I thought of flipping a u-turn. I got flipped the bird TWICE by drivers cutting ME off! I drove WAY too fast..once the traffic started moving.
But...

I made it.

And then had to wait for the doctor. For 45 minutes!! I walked in the clinic at 11:50. Just in time for everyone to take their lunch breaks! I found a vending machine, got some cheetos, a bottle of water, found a seat and tried my best to calm down and relax.

My name was called around 12:35 and shortly after the swimmers were on their way! The doc had a little bit of trouble getting the catheter into my cervix but she wiggled it around..ouch..and got it in position.

I laid there for 15 minutes with my legs crossed, praying for this one to work then I was gone.
I drove thru Chick-fil-a for lunch and then over to the pharmacy to pick up my bullets aka progesterone.

Now here I sit, crossed legged with my kokopelli socks on, watching the clock.

I hope all that frustration makes the rest of the process easier! Noah was conceived on a frozen, icy day in February, after we were stuck in traffic for about an hour. We're crossing our fingers for you!
