its going to be quite a week!

Valentines day was wonderful, hubby and I went out to dinner Saturday night and then had a lovley day around the house on Sunday. He made me a card and bought me flowers and a can opener...now I know to some a can opener not all that romantic BUT our can opener was busted and made me scream with anger everytime I used it, so a cano pener, very romantic.
This week the ultrasounds begin, I am use to this, the difference this time will be the planned IUI. This is a new world to us...I am excited about the possiblites and nervous about the procedure...there was mention of a ecg or somthing the night before hand, I have no idea what that is about...if any of you are IUI vetrans I would love to hear the details. I am feeling positive this cycle. I have been more active the past two weeks and the sun is staying out longer and longer everyday so that is helping.
For those curious, Bella my hamster is on the mend, her abcess is healing and she is taking her medicine. She hates it though and let me tell you trying to give a hamster a syringe of anit-biotics is not easy. She is so cute it is worth it.
Saw Valentines Day the movie today, very cute, loved it. Hubby enjoyed it too.
On the flip side.


  1. Thank you for taking such great care of Bella. I feel terrible that you had to take her to the vet. Starbucks is on me tonight. S.

  2. Wonderful entry!
    I love the fact that you care as much about Bella as you do because I agree that she is an animal and part of your family and there is no such thing as 'just a hamter' or 'just a pet'
    So happy you had a nice weekend

  3. Probably an hCG shot the night before the IUI. That's just a shot of the pregnancy hormone (that if very similar to LH, the ovulation hormone) so it causes ovulation... just to ensure that you're ovulate on time and be ready for the IUI.

    GOOD LUCK!!!

  4. Got it!!!! thanks so much....

  5. Best wishes for the new cycle. You both will be such wonderful parents. I'm sure it will happen soon. Thanks for helping me with my own blog. We'll be thinking about you.

  6. good luck to you in this new cycle!


Love to hear from you!
