CD22, 9dpo, 8dpiui, Praying for BFP!

Through all this I learned a new language. A language I was unfamiliar with in the beginning of my journey but as time went on and I took more 'classes' I immersed myself more and more in the language I became a member of the world of infertility acronyms and now I am practically fluent. I can decode a sentence such as "TTC for 5 yrs, cd14, 2dpo, 1dpiui, BFP on cd24" just as you are reading these words I am typing.

Today I am 8 days post IUI and had blood work done yesterday to check my progesterone levels. The results came back at 16 so everything is perfect with those levels. I am still on the thyroid medicine which last time that was checked about a month ago it was at 1.6 which is also perfect. My days are crazy right now with everything I am required to remember to do. In the morning before I move or talk I have to check my BBT, after that have to take a thyroid pill (with plenty of water) an hour before I eat anything, my progesterone medicine has to be taken in the morning and at night spaced out 12 hours from each other so I must time that correctly each day twice a day, and then sometime throughout the day (after I eat) I take my pre-natal pills, I do blood work at the doctor office every few days and schedule acupuncture after work at least twice a week. We go back into Dr. Anderson's office in 6 days.... a week from yesterday, January 17, 2014 at 7am for the final blood work to see if all of this paid off. I will have the blood work done, go to work and they will call about 2pm with the results. I decided I am not going to answer the phone and asked them to leave the results on my voicemail and I will listen to it with Joey when I get home.... HE BETTER NOT BE FLYING A TRIP THAT DAY! I am so so so so so so so EXCITED and nervous! This IS it the moment we have been praying for every day, we ask all of our friends and family to pray, we have people at our Carlsbad and Mission Viejo church praying, we have our co-workers praying and best of all we have God! We know that He knows what is best for us and what our hearts desire. In 6 days I pray I can leave the infertility acronym club and finally upgrade to the mommy club, just 6 more days! xoxo

Happy New Year

Happy New Year!!!! Joey and I are so excited to see how God is going to bless us in 2014 with all the people praying for us.... means the world to Joey and I.

Last night was a lot of fun, while Joey was flying home from a trip to Aspen I met up with some of my girls friends. I met one for lunch with her boyfriend (I should be saying fiance.... hopefully soon) we had a great lunch and walked along the boardwalk in Carlsbad. After that I met another good friend and my bestie at a resort she was staying at to ring in the new year, so fun just hanging out with the girls for a bit. Once Joey landed we got ready and went over to our newlywed friends place, they recently bought, for a nice dinner party to ring in the new year, it was such a nice way to spend the last part of 2013. Tomorrow is my big day with the IUI in the morning and another IUI the following morning. I had my HCG trigger shot this morning, it was not painful going in but now (about 5 hours later) it feels like a horse kicked me where the shot was injected, very painful. I just took an OPK test and it came out positive so I did an emergency call to Dr. Anderson and he said that it is positive because of the HCG that we injected into my body and it was normal and to wait until tomorrow for the IUI. He said this was good and it means that the trigger shot is doing what it's suppose to be doing. Fingers crossed for tomorrow.... we will keep everyone posted.
