Kylnee, I know what you mean our biological clocks are ticking away. The office should assist us with our needs, since it should be a work/family balance environment. I wish we could work together on this, and know only a stragedy will make things work! Timing is everything, glad you have a clinic with flexible hours!
Hopefully though at work you can put in some vacation time around the cycle and make the timing work for you.
Tonight as we walked the labradors, DH told me he's calling our RE Monday to find out more details about his sperm analysis results. He is still leaning on IVF, while I'm set on doing the IUI as we had already scheduled to be around January18th.
DH thinks that even though the nurse told him the good news (and we got the meds faxed to my pharmacy on Friday), that we should still need to talk with our RE to find out more about his plans with us.
I mentioned before that his assistant said for an IUI the success rate is just 13%, but with this mind at 2500.00 we could afford several attempts with an IUI even if the 1st one didn't work. However, DH is more of the analytical thinker, says we now have other weighing factors/ options to choose from. He's thinking if the success rate is higher and our doctor is willing to discount the procedure to 7500.00 we might want to stay with IVF. I'm thinking why make this more complicated and clean out our bank account? RIght now we can afford an IUI, whereas late June we would have enough saved up for an IVF if necessary. Hopefully tomorrow we will be able to compromise together on our next step.
How was your New Year's Eve? Overall it's been a crazy weekend here. New Year's Eve with the neighbors till 1:30 and didn't fall asleep until 2am. Felt like crap the next day, but made love anyway. Tried to get most of the Christmas decorations in the attic but had no energy. Sunday we skipped Sunday school, tend to feel like it's becoming somewhat "clickish" with them and often feel worst when I walk out of there, either mad or upset (taking it out on sweet dh) about a comment someone in class might of said such as Scott blurting out, "Everyone I have an announcement to make...Nancy is knocked up" and the whole class dying in laughter while we're in a shock like how could you do that to your wife? One day he referred to reading the daily scripture to baby food, how simple it must be. I'm like you idiot! So we've gotten where we just attend the worship service and we both agree we get more out of it, without the crazy ridiculous comments.
At this very moment wishing I wasn't on birth control, keep thinking I'm throwing a cycle "of time" away. Felt like I was ovulating last Thursday, had all the symptoms that I was but could do nothing about it. Birth Control makes me feel tired and sluggish like it takes every ounce of energy to get me out of bed in the mornings. Even called my boss one day last week telling him I wasn't feeling well, running late, but still coming in. I'm like you never missing a day of work.
On the flipside of things, It's funny that since DH got the "good news" on his S/A report, maybe it's psychological but he has been all crazy and in the mood...3x in one day! Told him the doors are now closed and I'm needing alot cranberry juice tonight. lol.
