Success!

I actually wrote this Tuesday, March 4
I updated Justin's post to give a little more info.

On the ultrasound Monday morning there were 2 follicles measuring 20mm and 25 mm, which is considered large. And 1 smaller, measuring 15 mm. The Eggs have to be between 15-20 for them to do the ovidril. So that's what we are doing. According to things I have read, the best chances to get pregnant is when 3 eggs are used. Luckily, that is exactly how many we are working with. A couple more good things have come out of this. I know my body is responding to the clomid, which the side effects suck when I am taking it. But we also don't have to switch drugs either, which is nice on the pocket book, because the rest of the stuff wasn't cheap. so anyway, I gave myself a ovidril shot last night in my stomach. I never thought I could give myself a shot, but it wasn't as bad as I thought. Now tomorrow morning we go back for the IUI. Justin has to go 2 hrs before me, to do his business, make his donation, what ever you want to call it. Then I go in 2hrs later for the actual procedure. From my understanding they are going to insert a catheter into my cervix and uterus and inject baby juice. I will have to lay there for about 15 minutes, then we are done, and we go on like a normal day. How that is possible I don't know. And then it is a waiting game..........
