Good morning ladies!!
So excited for all our bfps! It really does make me think about whether or not we could manage more than one insem this month. It'd be a stretch, but whomever it was up the thread who said they'd hopefully be 'broke but pregnant' hit the nail on the head. I've just been thinking about how few sperms actually get to make the journey and it makes me even more nervous. I mean, I know it happens, but maybe you multi-ladies have the right idea. Well, CLEARLY you do, eh?
AmandaH~ SO SORRY about rubbish FedEx and their misinformation. You've got two vials, though, so that's a good thing, though not quite the thing you wanted.
LOL about having a glass of beer a day to improve blood flow! My mom had my little brother in 1987 and when she went in for her amnio, the doc sent her home and told her to have a wine cooler or two 'to relax her and the baby'. But it's true, I think about all the Baby Boomers born to women balancing martinis and ashtrays on their bumps and think 'Probably a half-glass of champagne will be okay...'
Gellybean~ so nice to meet you! Your first IUI sounds frustrating~ poor motility's no good! Tell us more about the fertility pills you're taking~ I've never heard of them. What's in them? What are they supposed to do? I've never taken Clomid, but I've taken Femara and am old friends with the progesterone suppositories. Best of luck and welcome to the conversation! We're a pretty decent group, I must say
Newbian~ Nice to hear from you! How are things in your neck of the woods? Read any good books lately?
Scarlett~ This is a bit late, but I love Lush cosmetics! They have something called the 'glitter bug' which I adore (being as how I have the aesthetics of a nine year old girl...) It's a ladybug-shaped lotion bar with irridescent sparkles in it, and when you rub it on your hands/face/arms etc it gives you the most wonderful sparkliness. If you're into that sort of thing, which clearly I am (do you see why I want a little drag queen baby? I have a vision of me and my son, covered in glitter, doing Lady Gaga routines in the living room. I'll just cling to that...) Just going into a Lush is a magical experience. Smells so nice!!
Okay, more coffee. It's a weird day~ as a librarian I have an extra day on my contract, so I'm at work today with literally actually nothing to do (all books have been shelved, all computers except this one covered, etc). I'm at the back of the building and the secretary's at the front and there's no one else here, nor will there be, all day long. I see a long lunch in my future.
Forgive my morning no-coffee fog if I forget names or get yours wrong.
