Ack - so yesterday was kind of a disaster. We were having a good visit with our KD (good friend) and waiting for the kids to fall asleep before we would do the inseam. But the kids just wouldn't go to sleep, DD didn't even fall asleep in the hour long car ride home which started 2 hours after her normal bed time. We thought that at least the baby would have fallen asleep, but no. So, we decided to go ahead with out attempt anyway since we had to be heading home.
Graphic details ahead:
KD deposited in to a cup, I used some pre-seed since this was my first supposedly fertile day and the CM just wasn't there. We used a medicine syringe for the deposit but it didn't stay put at all. I feel sure that positively everything dripped back out. Ack! No relaxing for me - I had to jump up and try to clean the mess - and at KD's house too. *sigh* What are your thoughts: the syringe wasn't in far enough? I shouldn't have used lube? Do people have better luck with instead cups? I thought about using my menstrual cup (fleurcup) for the job, but the way I fold that up for insertion is likely to squeeze everything out so I don't want to risk that.
I know a lot of you are using and RE and frozen swimmers - but it can't hurt to ask. I think Kbfs and I are going to have a lot of the same questions while we get the hang of this.
We decided that I would drive back up to the city today to try again and KD is willing to come to us tomorrow. Let's hope we can get this right. I'm still not sure what method I'm going to use. Hrmmm.. Well, at least I think I'm in the TWW ;)
