100th post, 22 million sperm

This is my 100th blog post and I sure thought I would be a mother by now. After today I may be, right? I know that one day when we are playing with our child(ren) I can look back at these posts and remember what we went through to have our child(ren). The Captain says to me every month "when we get pregnant and have our baby we won't remember any of this pain, there will be so much joy in our lives that none of this will matter". It does matter, to me. All this pain means that the day I take a pregnancy test and it says "pregnant" will be that much more meaningful. I don't want to forget all the pain we have been through it will make us appreciate our children all that much more. Just like the poem says "I think God meant for me to build a thirst for a child so strong and deep that when the baby is finally placed in my arms, it will be the longest, coolest, most refreshing drink I have ever known."

The Captain had 22 million sperm post wash and the motility increased post wash!! That is amazing numbers considering the last IUI they only put 10 million back. We feel good about this cycle, everything is laying out right this month. Double the amount of sperm, timing is perfect, The Captain is off today and tomorrow so no delayed BD'ing.

We did go ahead and schedule our consultation for our next step before my 2 weeks are up though. The nurse said we should schedule it before my period is due so we don't miss out on the next cycle waiting to find out the next course of action. Good thinking. I am so glad they are willing to plan ahead. She said "who knows maybe this will mean you don't need the appointment after all". I like the way you think Nurse H. Murphy's Law and all, if we book the appointment then we won't need it, right?

2 lovely notes from friends:

Sounds like IUI went great. I hope you don't need that next appointment because you will be preggo!

I love that quote you put up there! It is so very true. We may not understand why we are going through this...but just imagine the day we finally get to hold our baby in our arms. I am not sure there could ever be anything that wonderful!
