CD5: Happy ICLW!

Welcome, ICLW'ers! I am so happy you're here. After a three year journey, R and I are currently counting down the days to our first -and only- IUI. You can read all about our story here.

We originally planned on two home inseminations using donor sperm but Dr. P has managed to sway us to a single IUI. We are doing a natural cycle with a trigger shot. The calendar is currently set for an HSG on March 26. Since I ovulate late, our first ultrasound should be on CD18. Hopefully we'll be triggering around CD18-CD20.

Although our medical team thinks we're nuts to only do this once, R and I are trusting the Lord with the outcome of this cycle. We've clearly seen God at work in our lives and know that His plan is best, whether that includes another child or not.

I've got my lucky socks and am ready to go. I hope you stick around - things are about to get interesting!


Do you have any lucky talismans that you bring to procedures?


  1. I hope that your one cycle is it!

  2. Best wishes to you! Hoping that you get good news with this one and only shot using treatment...really hoping God's plan lines up with your own heart's desires!

    1. Thank you! I've got my fingers crossed. :-) How good to know that, if not, we're still going to be okay!

  3. Hi from ICLW. Really hopeful that this works well for you.

  4. Happy ICLW! I'm so excited to see how this cycle turns out for you. I really mean that, even if I'm not in such a good place right now.

  5. Returning your visit. Thank you for stopping by my blog!

    I hope this cycle works for you.
