We have been officially cleared to move forward with the IUI. My ovaries look good: 8-9 potential follies on each side. The blood work all looks good. So I start stimming tomorrow with 75 units of Gonal F each night. Then go in on Wednesday for another check. Very excited to get this show on the road.
I'm trying a new approach this time. I'm trying to focus on thinking that this will be successful. Last time I tried to be very realistic, trying not to get too high of expectations and such. I don't think that helped. It was a rollercoaster even if I knew that it may not work, and it will be a roller coaster no matter what. So I'm going to try to have as much hope as possible this time. This will work - this is what I need to get pregnant, and stay pregnant. And I will be having a baby in January 2011! I will try as hard as I can to maintain this positive attitude throughout - I'm hoping this will get me through this process in the easiest way - wish me luck!
