IUI #1

IUI #1 is over with!  It wasn’t really all that bad…the whole process took a little longer than we had anticipated, but most things do.  :)

We headed over to the Urologist bright and early and had to wait quite some time for the wash.  But finally the “specimen” was handed to us and we were on our way to the OBGYN.  I was very very protective of those little spermies.  I wore a puffy vest to insulate and keep them warm in my bra.  My motherly instinct was well intact.  :)

I am being a copycat and copying Courtney in her taking pictures at the IUI appointment while holding up the number of fingers for the number of tries.  We pray that this is the one and only picture that we will take, but we will see what the Lord has planned.  Note I am still guarding those little spermies in my vest.  :) 



The IUI itself was uncomfortable but not painful and it was over fairly quickly.  After laying there for 20 minutes we were on our way.  I did take it very easy yesterday though and laid around a lot.  I know the doctors say that is not necessary, but it can’t hurt!  Plus it was nice having Barry bring me food and such…he he he…

So now we pray and root on the little guys…Swim little guys swim!!!


  1. SWIM! So glad it went well!! Praying that God will bless it with success!

  2. that made my day...I love the pics!! I really have enjoyed looking back on the pictures so I'm glad you are taking them. Here's to hoping you will only have one picture!! Enjoy being PUPO (pregnant until proven otherwise). Oh and we always got together the night of the IUI or the following can't hurt ;).

  3. Praying one finger is all you ever need to hold up! Hope this 2ww goes by fast. Planning some fun stuff to do with my hubby helped me (at least a little bit).

    I have some thoughts on a couple of your recent posts (about whether to tell others and wanting to do the Lord's will). I have been super busy recently and am getting ready for a trip to see my family this weekend. I will try to contact you next week either through a comment or email.

    ((HUGS)) and prayers!

  4. Yay! I'm soooo excited for you guys. I love the protective puffer vest and think you might could market the idea. Ha! I'm kidding. I love the pictures too!!!! What a great idea. Praying for you guys and look forward to an update...praying while you wait too.

  5. YIPPEE!!! ;-) Swim spermies, SWIM!!! Love the photos! Wish we did them... {I'm going to assume that's a "Go Braves" shirt which just is lucky!}

  6. Swim like you've never swum before!!!! Good luck and you look precious in your picture! I love the vest idea...what a good mama to be!

  7. Me again! I left you an award on my blog!

  8. Love the vest and picture idea. Praying for both of you. You will be a wonderful mother one day (hopefully soon)!

  9. Thanks for your response to my blog entry on endometriosis. I will need to get it checked out.
