En garde!!

So we have a plan of attack. Because feeling like you're going into battle is precisely the right atmosphere in which one should create a baby, isn't it?

The sad thing is, it is the right way to go when you've been trying to conceive for a few days shy of 15 months. At this point, the more ammunition, the better.

Which is why as soon as the conditions are right we'll be doing IUI. Intrauterine Insemination.

Gosh, it even sounds romantic, doesn't it? All sterile and mediciney.

As the good doctor said, My Beloved and I don't even have to be in the building at the same time to have a baby this way. And isn't that every loving couple's dream? I've always hoped to conceive a child using a speculum, a long syringe and the help of masked strangers.

I'm being so ungrateful. I know I am. We're very lucky to be good candidates for this procedure and I'm also very lucky that I responded so well to the Clomid and that My Beloved's swimmers are in peak condition.

I just need a little time to adjust to this strange new world in which everyone is invited into my vagina for a looky-loo and nature takes a back seat to science. It's very foreign to me.

But if it means that one day we'll be bringing a real live baby home to stay, I'll do it. I'll do it all and then some.

Oh Kristin reading this makes me want to cry and laugh only because the way you write and your sarcasims are too funny but I wish it could happen the old fashioned way but like you said you'll do anything to bring home a healthy little baby and we all wish the same for you (((((HUGS)))))

It doesn't seem fair to have to go down this route, but at least you're both "fine candidates". Good luck, and remember that we'll all be here to cheer you on!

I felt the exact same way when IUI was mentioned to us. We put it off for as long as we could before finally saying "ok, we'll try it since nothing else is working". I've gotten pg twice with IUI so now its my best friend!LOL
GL & Many (((HUGS)))

You're right. It's not fair. Pisses me off everytime I hear some woman moaning about how easily she gets pregnant...blech. It is very strange to have someone peering up your hoo-ha every two or three days. Whatever it takes, right?

We're totally rooting for you!

I know it feels so sterile and unromantic but it IS a plan and is a very promising one at that.

I'm sure you and Sandy can find a way to make this process romantic. Good luck!

I'm glad you have a plan but sorry it has to include inviting the whole world into your vagina.

H&S and prayers, as always, as you take the next step.
