day three - cycle two

Today was the official beginning of cycle two. We waited a long time today. It was very busy. We were there for about 2 1/2 hours, a long wait. In our meeting with the Doctor I let her know I was concerned about the lack of cervical fluid on the clomid....this is actually a pretty common thing. The issue is you need cervical fluid to escort those little sperms on their way to the big apple. The doctor very casually mentioned that if cervical fluid is an issue than perhaps insemination is the way to go. HOLD ON!!!! Did she say insemination! I smiled polity but in my head I was screaming! I was only suppose to need cycle monitoring and a little medication.

I went home had something to eat, got in the shower and practically threw up. Was I really ready to step into that world....the world of IUI, IVF....I don't know if I am. I have done a little research and I know that IUI is not that expensive...it is not really that invasive....

IUI is a process where they take the sperm from my darling man and insert into the uterus...no petri dish....just putting the little guys in the right place and at what we would hope would be the right time.

Lets see what happens with cycle two, perhaps there is no need to even think about cycle three and IUI. Fingers crossed!
