Holy cow, it's been way too long since I last blogged. I have been writing blog posts for two local stores so that was taking up much of my "creative juices / desire to write". It was a fabulous job and writing those blogs was so fun, but it did leave me less then interested to write towards my personal blog. But, I am no longer working for those stores so hopefully I'll get back to writing on here more often.
First things first - one of my last posts was a response I wrote about an article sent to me about infertility. You can read that here.
So, it is only right that I officially (by official, I mean blog official - the info is already on Facebook so that means it's official right? Hehe) announce we are pregnant!!
In late February we began treatment for an IUI (intrauterine insemination). Treatment consisted on both oral medications (letrozole) and shots (follistim) that I gave myself at home. After 10 days on treatment, we had an ultrasound to see if the medications were "doing their job". And they were...follicles were growing on both ovaries and looking good so far. I was told to do 2 more at home injections then return a few days later for another ultrasound. That ultrasound looked fabulous. So we moved to the next step which was to do another injection but this time the medication (ovidril) was to tell me body to ovulate and then we would return 24 hours later for the procedure. The next morning we returned to the doctor and had the procedure.
