Feeling soooooooo sexy

Chelene just posted about bringing sexy back. I can relate to that feeling today. I may even have ya beat, girlfriend.

We've decided to go the IUI route for the fertility treatment. I started things off today with a baseline ultrasound. It's day 3 of my cycle.

Think about that one for a second.

I'm glad the tech was female. Very, very glad.

On the positive side, I've got some great looking ovaries.

We just started trying. Since The Wifey has arthritis she can't be off her meds very long and we may end up going the same route.

In no time at all you'll be starting off your day with a baseline drive into left field for the entire baseball team of your offspring to catch!

Cat - I didn't know you and Wifey wanted kittens! I wish the both of you luck. Are her meds counterindicative to conception?

It's been real frustrating for us not finding any definitive reason why we haven't gotten pregnant yet.

Rhet - you Canadians sure love baseball, don't ya! :) And we don't want a whole teamful. 2 or 3 will be plenty, and it this point I may be happy with just 1.

The meds aren't counterproductive, but there is a two fold problem with them.

One, they are extremely dangerous and could cause problems for a fetus if they haven't been out of the system for a few months.

Two, the longer she is without them the more change the RA causes some damage to her hands or something.

Ah, I understand. So could you possibly be looking at surrogacy too?

Seems as if you two should maybe jump to some assisted tactic quickly if you're not getting results the old-fashioned way. Doesn't mean you can't keep practicing that method of course! :)

The tech has probably seen it all before...but yeah I think you win this round. :)
