Yes, I realize how incredibly creative the title of this post was.

I just wanted to give a quick update on my IUI. It has taken me awhile to post about it because my sweet grandmother passed away almost exactly 36 hours after my procedure. She will get her own special post later.

I had my IUI, as planned last Sunday morning. Dr. Butler said I had an excellent cycle. My final follicle count was 3 mature follicles with a possible 4th. The procedure went perfectly. Hopefully, my body will cooperate. The fact that I have had endometrosis could play a part in whether or not it will work. So, now we wait...

Over the past week I have had several people ask me "When will you know" and my response is...Heath and I know the date but, we have chosen not to share that date for several reasons.

  1. As much as I do not mind people asking about all of this. It could be very overwhelming to me if everyone were to ask at once or on the same day.
  2. Regardless of the outcome we feel like we will need a few days to adjust to it. It working could be just as shocking to us as it not working.
  3. Heath and I want that time to be private for us...because lets face it, nothing about this has been private.
  4. Ok, so this last one I am not completely sold on yet but, Heath really wants to wait and share our news (good or bad) when our whole family is together. In August! I can here my family screaming now...I said I wasn't sold on it!

Regardless of the outcome we will share our news with everyone when we feel the time is right for us. So until then, please continue to pray for us and please know all of your sweet cards, emails and text have been GREATLY appreciated. Even if I wasn't able to respond to each one. I love that sweet prayers are being said for my future little one(s)

I'm so sorry that I am just now reading all about your IUI. Shows how often I blog hop these days! But, I just wanted you to know that I now officially join the many others who are praying for you and Heath!! I am praying even as I type that "God, the source of hope, will fill you completely with all joy and peace because you trust in Him. Then you will overflow with confident hope through the power of the Holy Spirit!" (Romans 15:13). May every prayer be answered for you, sweet friend!! Love you! And, I'll definitely be checking in for updates now! :)
