My guess is that we'll probably do a laproscopy to remove the endometrioma from my right ovary and then move on to IVF.
On a happier note two nights ago I dreamed (for the first time in 11 cycles of trying!) that I was pregnant. I could feel my uterus like a hard round ball in my tummy (yes, I know that's not the way it feels for real). And then last night I dreamed that I got a BFP. Both great dreams.
Oooh, I really hope this IUI works out for you, cejae! I know that this thing gets so old and trying (no pun intended) after awhile. Tons of baby dust, good vibes, and
coming at you!
And I personally think the dreams are a good sign, too!

DW got a miner's headlight to make the navigating easier and we were so excited that it came in the mail yesterday!
LOL!!! This cracked me up and gave me a "vaginal spelunking" image.

Ugh! What a pain! (Literally.) But at least you got it out of the way now so that WHEN this cycle works, you don't have to go in for one during the pregnancy.
- my heart was aching for you reading your post. I know that there just MUST be good things in store for you TTC-wise this holiday season so you don't have to make such difficult decisions. AFM
- insem went okay yesterday. It was nice doing it at home. I laid there for about 5-10 minutes, but then everything started leaking out! I remember this happening before when I did it at home, after the sample had liquefied (when I do it right away, it's more viscous and stays put better). So I freaked and put an Instead Cup in. I'm so neurotic! The whole point was to be able to lay there, in the comfort of my own home, without the need to use the Instead Cup (at least for 20 minutes or so, so the spermie could do their thang for a bit w/out me possibly distributing them with the cup!). Argh!
Going to try to do it at home again after work, tonight... and then I wait.
Also, I don't have as much EWCM as usual... I hope O isn't late this month. That would be just my freaking luck. I usually have a decent amount by now (but then again, I haven't been checking as crazily these last few days cause I don't want to disrupt anything that's going on in there!)
I'm all thrown off by things being earlier this time!
