Testing 1, 2, 3....

Testing time has arrived. Technically, I could have tested this morning but I thought it would be better to save it for the weekend so I don't have to go to work after the results. My husband and I just got back from the store...I have the test in hand...what a dangerous thing! I will wait until tomorrow (Saturday) or Sunday morning. I might decide to wait even longer than that. I just feel I deserve to test after what feels like such a long wait. I may regret this decision but I am thinking I am not the only one that feels this way every month!

Back in September when we first starting seeing our RE, he told us that he would expect us to be pregnant within 3 months (3 rounds of Clomid only.) Here we are in May, our 2nd IUI. I never thought we would get to this point in our trying to conceive journey. Heck, I never though we would have to see a fertility specialist. I give so much credit to those of you who have tried way longer than us, have done countless IUI cycles and are now into are my heroes. The fact that you are still standing, still trying, and keeping hope never ceases to amaze me. Thank you for your inspiration.

After our first IUI in February, we had quite the mishap with the pregnancy test. I decided to POAS (pee on a stick) and then I hopped into the shower thinking by the time I was out of the shower the results would be ready. Once I was finished, I wrapped a towel around me, took a deep breath, took another deep breath, gave myself a pep talk, and then looked at the test. There was a line!!!!!! I ran out of the bathroom and said "Husband's name, I think I'm pregnant." He too, saw the line and for two minutes we hugged and cried and were in shock. Then, hubby realized we had purchased the test that you need a + sign instead of just a line for positive results. We were devastated. Deep inside though I knew it was never true. This time, we made sure to buy the test that only requires one line for BFP. I will triple check the box after I take the test to make sure this time!

In the meantime, I am going to watch Sherlock Holmes to keep my mind occupied. The closer it gets to testing time, the more anxious I become.


  1. Good luck w/the test today. Hoping for good results!!

  2. I found your blog through another during ICLW...
