Now the wait

So far so good! We did our first insemination Wednesday and had a positive OPK that next morning. Our donor found out that he wasn't being sent out of town so we went ahead and did our second insemination last night. Our doctor wanted us to do it two days in a row but all of the books we have been reading tell us with a fresh donation to skip a day. So I hope we didn't jump the gun. I feel like we did the right thing for this cycle. I don't know if this is a sign or not but this morning when the alarm clock went off the only thing i heard was "Welcome to pregnancy" and I hit the snooze button. How weird is that? Now I just sit here thinking what if. What if the dogs are sad? What if I lose my job? What if the baby colicky? What if? What if? What if? I am so excited but also so scared at the same time.

Insemination #1

This is it! in just a couple of hours we will be inseminating for the first time. Things aren't lining up quite as we would like them to but we have determined this to be our best shot. This cycle has been quite wacky and our donor is working out of town tomorrow. So we will do #1 tonight and #2 on Friday. I can't beleive our time is here. Somedays I feel super confident that we will be lucky on our first try and somedays I feel like it won't work at all (without fertilty assistance). V and I have decided that we will not pursue fertility treatments if it comes down to it. Perhaps we will change our minds. Wish us luck!
