I love it when a plan comes together! :)

Yes, I loved the A-Team as a kid ;)


So, a few months ago I had an RE visit where I had an HSG done and DH had an SA done and a few blood tests. All results were normal so the dr said to give it 3 more months and come in if I wasn't pregnant yet. Today was our follow-up and he decided to fast track me (kinda) due to age and length of time that we've been trying. He gave me the option to do IVF or IUI but recommended I try 2-3 cycles of IUI first.
I thought I was prepared to do IVF but realized I wasn't quite there yet and with the stuff going on in our life right now(I made a vent post about it), I'm just not ready to plunk down $10-15k without exploring the $500 option first.
I start a round of Clomid on Saturday (CD3) and will go in for an ultrasound on May 16 (CD12) to see how I am responding. If things look good I will give myself an injection of Ovidrel (which is sitting in my fridge right now!) and then 24-36hrs later I will go in for our first IUI attempt.
I know there is still a huge chance it will amount to nothing but it's the first time, since the early days of trying, that I feel hope about TTC. I am terrified it won't work but so excited at the same time.
Please, please pray for us and send us good vibes.
We decided not to tell anyone IRL but I needed to tell you guys and DH said "of course you can tell PW, I'm pretty sure when the time comes they'll know you're pregnant before I do!" lol :)
Yay!!!!!!!! :)

Woo hoo!  Doesn't it feel great to have a real plan of attack?  And I don't know if you're like me, but it feels like a huge relief to know that someone else is taking the reigns in the process and you no longer have to be in control so much!  I'm jealous that you're already starting the IUI process!! :)  I still have to wait out this 2ww of this natural cycle before getting going. Fingers crossed that this is IT for you and your DH!  Don't stress about whether or not it will work...you have no control over that.  Just take it one day at a time, one step at a time, and think good thoughts!  I'll be sending all the positive vibes in the world your way!!

Thank you, girls!
I am really, really excited and feel so lucky to have your support. It does feel good to have a plan of attack and, like Beatie said, it feels good to be able to step back and let someone else lead the way.
I have to say that I feel a bit stunned that it is happening so fast. I expected this appt to just be a discussion of options but due to my history, the fact that DH and I had already prepared ourselves for serious intervention and my work schedule the dr went ahead and said "let's get moving" and it just so happened that my appt day was CD1 for me.
Princess, I sure hope I follow in Beans and your friend's footsteps :)
I will keep you all updated and will be praying for each and every one of you, too.
Baby dust to all!!!!
