I haven't worked out my due date yet.

That's how relaxed I am. My acupuncturist asked me yesterday how I was, I told her I was very excited. She felt my pulse and was surprised that it didn't feel anxious. I told her no, I'm not anxious at all, I'm excited like I'm going away on holiday. She told me then that she thought the IUI should work.

And so I am PUPO (pregnant until proven otherwise). I will spend the next week planning for and looking forward to my baby/ies. And if it doesn't work out this time, then we will go straight into another medicated IUI cycle, so no time for tears.

We have another cause for celebration. DH's SA showed 45% motility!!! That's up from 30% in July. Still infertile, or "subfertile" as they prefer to call it, but such a vast improvement, we can only hope that he goes all the way. He had a varicocele ligation (removal of varicose vein in his testicle) in July, and we were given a 40% chance of improvement after 6 months to a year. So we are way ahead. I didn't get the numbers for morphology which was also a problem, but one step at a time.

The only fly in the ointment has been the fact that I very unusually have had absolutely no signs of O; no fertile CM, no cramps, no discomfort. No big temp rise today either, but hoping for one tomorrow. I mean, how could it go wrong? I had a big follicle on Wed, HCG shot at 4am on Thurs, so I must have O'd by now, right?

Huge heaping bunches of good luck.
It sounds like you are in a beautiful frame of mine. I am on a creative bender & am enjoying being me for the moment. I really need to update my music collection as I made the mistake of listening to too much kids music over the last decade. Now as my Lily (7) is becoming a huge music lover I realize I really made a mistake not introducing them too other music earlier.

Anyway recommendations please!
I did like both of your recent selections. I am pretty eclectic..like good dancing funk stuff as well as folky if the voice is strong category is pretty unimportant. I am a fan of sexy voices too.Some people/groups that I like...Joan Armatrading,K.D Lang,
Seal,Indigo Girls...I am blanking now...

I'd love an e-mail list of as many as you can think of,

I wouldn't worry about the O thing I know with at least one of my kids
I had no signs whatsoever.Are you stil temping?GREAT news on your hubby's improvement it is probay the sugery and the vitamins,

take care,

Wow,I obviously failed to edit my typos last time!
It is Thanksgiving tomorrow in the States so I will be celebrating all that I am grateful for (there is a LOT). It is one of my favorite holidays because it is all about family...no commercialism.

Wishing you a Happy Thanksgiving,and hoping for you.
take care,
