I'm better now
Ye'll never believe who came knocking on my door yesterday. Twas that aul divil Hope herself!!! She didn't come empty handed either - she brought a bottle of amnesia and we drank our troubles away. So where was I? Ah yeah, this IUI is bound to work, sure why wouldn't it? And testing on Christmas day, what a great surprise that will be for the whole family!
I'm back in the saddle, but oh how my ovaries hurt. It was a close call over the weekend, thought I was going to O for sure on Sat (CD6!), had all the classic signs. But made it through to my shot of Orgalutran this morning without a +OPK, so hopefully those eggies (that pain is surely plural) will stay put until my scan on Wed. Fingers crossed for a Fri IUI and then we can try and put the whole bloody nonsense out of our heads and concentrate on a completely different 2ww.
Christmas fever is running high in our house. The tree went up last night, this morning J ran downstairs to see if Santa had come yet. We made the mistake of putting crackers on the tree and I have now wrestled the useless things off him about 50 times - "I just want to see what's inside and then I'll put it back". Aaaaaagh, there goes another glass bauble! But deep down I am thrilled for him and for me - isn't this what life is all about, standing at a Christmas tree with your son, singing carols at top volume, while your husband looks on in "mock" horror?
