Alrighty, so the last time I heard from the RE it was about 3:45 Friday afternoon and they told me to go ahead and trigger. But I cannot do this on my own...so I had to hastily call someone to help!! :) Thankfully, I am blessed to have great friends who are available at a moments notice to inject me. So I drove out to Rachel’s house and let her poke me, which she did an awesome job at! No shaking or anything. I am so mad at myself that I forgot to get a picture this time though. Boo.
The IUI itself was set for Saturday morning. We had to be there at 7:30am and with a 3 1/2-4 hour drive I REALLY did not want to head there Saturday morning. So we decided to get a hotel that night and Saturday night and make a weekend out of it. I had just a couple of hours to trigger, tie up loose ends at work, pack, book a hotel, cancel church responsibilities, etc. before we had to leave town to head to Mobile. But it all got finished and we were on our way by 8ish that night. It rained/thundered the whole drive to Mobile, but we made it safely. We even saw the truck in front of us on the interstate swerve into the median, do at least three complete rotations and finally stop on the other side with oncoming traffic. It was so scary to watch! I don’t know if he hydroplaned or what, but the Lord was watching over the people in that truck because they were fine! There “somehow” weren’t any cars coming in the oncoming traffic lanes so they were able to get out of the way before they were hit. Crazy.
Everything else about the weekend went perfectly smoothly!! We got to see….
Yes, yes those are my husband’s swimmers! :) I debated posting it…didn’t know if it would be appropriate or make anyone uncomfortable…but I decided it was just too cool not to share! :) The camera didn’t take a great picture through the microscope, we could see them better than this but they were just a swimming around! And then…
The weekend was fun though! We stayed downtown in a neat little hotel, took naps, walked to a cute restaurant and coffee shop (decaf of course), went to a movie, shopped a little, ate at Lambert’s (Home of the Throwed Rolls…they really do throw them :) ), went outlet shopping…it was so nice and relaxing. I have read that more babies are conceived on vacations than at any other time, so there you go….making a mini vacation out of it! :) Please join with me in prayer that God is working a miracle in my body right now and we will get pregnant this cycle and have a healthy baby in 9 months!!
