Thanks for all the thoughts, prayers, fertile vibes, etc. you sent for yesterday’s IUI. It went off without a hitch–hardly any pain in spite of the fact that the scary tenaculum made a repeat appearance. The nurse practitioner who did the procedure talked me through every step and distracted me during the unpleasant parts. I spent the 20 minutes after the procedure lying on the table envisioning myself surrounded by love and light, and I left feeling very positive.
The freakish doubts were waiting when I woke this morning, however, and I’ve been fighting them off all day. I’m telling myself this is completely normal, and I’m reminding myself that believing is half the battle, and I’d still appreciate those prayers and fertile vibes.
Stay tuned–another update to follow in about two weeks.
