Going to the doctor

Well, I think I may be getting a little better....
I am at work right now. My boss did kindly let me know that I need to go to the doctor so I don't "infect anyone else". Isn't she sweet? So I have an appointment this afternoon. It is tough explaining to the office that no I am not taking anything to make this horrid cold go away. Because I don't want to say, I'm trying to make a baby here and I just can't take it. Instead I just look dumb for not trying to get myself better. Oh well, we'll see what the doc says this afternoon.

So, I have really tried to keep my mind off this two week wait. As you all know, that's easier said than done! My abdomen and back are sore, but I think it's mainly because I keep coughing so hard! (it's too early for symptoms anyway) I have been asking God to keep my mind busy. I know that for a lot of people it takes multiple IUI's before they conceive. And for some it never works. And others it works on the first try. The Mr. and I are both praying that if is in God's will to please let us become pregnant with a healthy child! That would definitely be the perfect way to start the year!


  1. I hope the doc can give you something to help you feel better! People always tell me that the 2ww is so early that the baby's not going to be harmed, but I endured a cold last year without NyQuil for the same reason you are! I just can't bear to think that it'd harm the baby in any way!!

  2. Hello!

    My name is Elisabeth, and I am an infertility / repeated pregnancy loss "veteran". You can read a little bit about me and my experiences in my blog: . I am completing a PhD in Counseling Psychology, and my dissertation is focused upon the impact of infertility on marriage. I believe strongly that there is a need for better support services for men and women who are undergoing IF diagnosis and treatment, and my hope is that this study will aid in the development of such services.

    I am contacting you after stumbling across your blog. I am recruiting participants for my study, and wanted to invite you and your husband to take part. All that would be involved would be the completion of an online survey, that would take approximately 20 minutes. All couples who complete the surveys will receive a voucher good for a pair of free movie tickets at a Regal Cinemas.

    Please let me know if you are interested by emailing me at .
