So I've been doing tons of projects to keep my mind busy and not focusing on which DPIUI we are or how I'm feeling. I've redone a dresser, floors, painted every wall in my house, made baby blankets for everyone and anyone who had told me they were pregnant and also started the lovely spring time yard work. Well last night I couldn't sleep at all so of course my mind has started to wander into every 'What if' situation I could come up with.
We are sitting at 8dpiui - 10dptrigger shot -- No crazy symptoms to report nothing out of the ordinary, I'm not a symptom spotter. We are having family pictures done in a few weeks. My brothers and I are getting family shots done for our mom for mothers day. My older brother (31) has 4 kids (9,8,5,4) and my younger brother (27) has 1 little one (2) and one on the way (due June). I really want to be able to throw a pregnancy announcement in with these pictures for my parents to see. So my mind is coming up with all these creative ways to spread the news but, I feel like we missed our mark again this cycle.
We did clomid for the first time this cycle (150/mg) and we released 2 good size follicies - I am just hoping that the little swimmers finally found one of them. We were able to use the same donor for the third time - we have to use a sperm bank, my husband is no able to father kids - so we were happy that our donor we liked still had vials left. It's not fun trying to find another donor that we both like. So maybe third times a charm with this guy - third time with him, 4th IUI....who knows.
My problem is that I've finished project and I don't have anything lined up...heading to Pinterest to see what I can find. I have to keep busy or I will drive myself and my husband insane. Our test day is Easter Sunday - that will be officially 2 weeks since our IUI. So I'll test before then because I'm addicted to peeing on sticks.
How does everyone pass their time in the TWW? Picture of one of the projects I finished this weekend. Little book crate and toy crate for the nursery.
