And we're off....

So today marked the beginning of our IUI cycle. I had my baseline ultrasound this morning, just to double check that everything was good to go and to get a starting point. My first round of injections were this evening. Thank goodness I have a wonderful MIL who lives next door and is willing to do the shots for me. The needles are tiny but the thought of poking myself creeps me out.

Today was a crazy day for emotions. They have been all across the board. We have been stunned that it is finally here and time to start this process that we have talked about for so long. I have been excited for the possibilities it holds. I have also been terrified that it might not work and for the fact that it may work. Its scary to think how much our lives could change. It is crazy to know that in a few weeks we will either be incredibly happy or very sad. For now, we are just looking forward and praying that this is what works for us. Please keep us in your prayers, pray for strength and for a successful outcome.

I don't know why, but for some reason it takes forever for your new posts to show up on my blog roll. I'm just now seeing your last two posts. Anyway, sprinkling baby dust. I take that back....more like flinging buckets of it your way!! I've been praying extra hard. Love you!
