Well, tomorrow we go in for the IUI procedure. I am so thankful that all of the shots for this round are done & that they went ok. We were in San Diego this past weekend to have an early Thanksgiving with family. We drove up from San Diego to LA in the morning & got to work prepping & cooking food. It was a wonderful dinner & I am grateful that I married into such a wonderful & loving family. After the best lemon pie & lots of visiting, we headed back to San Diego. It normally takes 2-2 1/2 hours to get back but we got stuck in LA traffic & it took 3 1/2 hours to get back!! I was stressing because we needed to do my shot at 9pm & we barely got there in time. Sunday we went to church & my parents met us there since they were visiting. After sacrament, they treated us to Con Pane (best sandwiches & cookies ever) & then we went to Sunset Cliffs to walk along the coast & take in the gorgeous views. I miss living by the ocean so much. I'm so grateful to be able to live close by family & would choose that over the beach but I do still miss the beach & surfing a lot! Luckily, we get to visit San Diego a lot & visit many tropical places! Our traveling has been put on hold for now though, since we are using & saving all of our money for fertility treatments. We have decided to spend about $150 to do a 3 day weekend in Mexico though in a few months. With all of the stress of infertility & the treatments, it is worth it to be able to have something to look forward to & some fun time to relax without worrying. It was so nice to have some time at the beach & to get to spend time with both of our parents this weekend!
We drove home & had a few hours to relax, watch a Christmas movie with our Christmas lights twinkling inside, & play with our wild, cute puppy. He is a mix of really hyper & licky & cuddly whenever we get back from a trip. We needed to do the trigger shot at 11:30pm & I was so nervous since it was the first time I have had that kind of shot. I just wasn't sure if it would hurt more or how it would be. It wasn't too bad, it did sting & take much longer than the other shots but it was ok. All of this will be so completely worth it if we are able to have a baby or babies!!!! :)
Tomorrow we go in for the procedure & then have the 2 week wait!!! I am going to try & keep really busy with family activities, going to yoga classes, & doing some projects so that the time will hopefully go by quickly! I have a good feeling about it though & have just felt so excited these past couple weeks knowing that we have a chance that we will be able to get pregnant & just knowing that we were pregnant during this Christmas season would be more joy than I can imagine!!!
