Natural birth? I may be rethinking that.

I woke up this morning excited about the IUI taking place this morning because it might actually work this time and because we will find out if I am pregnant in Costa Rica, surrounded by loved ones. I even put a Playboy magazine out for The Captain (since he was collecting his man juice at home this time) and guess what! I think it did the trick. His count post wash was. . .


I know. Right? So, are we still dealing with Male Infertility Factor? Things could not have been going better, until she couldn't get the catheter in my cervix. It was not cooperating. She had to open the speculum wider and put a lot of pressure on my cervix to get it in. She got it. FINALLY! And then the cramping started. I. Thought. I. Was. Going. to. Die. It was like the HSG all over again. If you don't remember, here it is.

I laid on the table for about 5 minutes and then my hands and feet started tingling and I thought I was going to pass out from the pain. I got enough strength to put my pants on and go get the nurse. She said it was normal since she had to put so much pressure on my cervix and to go lay down. She brought me juice. Then she says to me "I hate to tell you this but that is exactly what labor pains, contractions feel like" Excuse me, what? 

I have always thought I would have a natural birth without any intervention. Please tell me it isn't that bad.

Is it?

Is it?

Please say no. . .

haha, oh the memories I get when I read your posts. Sorry about the pain, but I experienced that same pain, and same comment from the nurse LOL. I pray that baskin robins 31 mil. does the trick! I love the 31 image you chose...

That's awesome news about your DH's numbers! I really hope it works for you this time... my fingers are staying crossed for you.

As for the natural childbirth, i had Addison totally natural a month ago and even though it was so intense and I didnt think I would make it through it, I did and I would do it the same way again if I'm given the chance. You could totally do it! :)

Fantastic #'s! One of my IUI's they had to use a Tenneculum...yet another device to add to the fun. It was TERRIBLE!
But hey it will all be worth it and we will not remember the pain as we hold our bundles of joy!

I highly recommend an epidural when it comes time to have a baby. I enjoyed it so much more that way! (I got to 7 cm naturally and I agree that it. hurts. really. really. bad!)

Everything sounds really good. I hope you get the news you have been waiting for!
