That's it?

Ten minutes.

That's all it took. Ten minutes.

All that anxiety and worry and nervousness over something that was over in ten minutes. Oh well.

Aside from that, everything went well. We dropped off the "sample" at 9 and went out to breakfast. At 11 we went back for the procedure. Both of us were worried that there would be nothing left of the sample after the wash but at least some survived since we went ahead with the IUI.

It was basically a pap smear but instead of them taking a sample, they injected one. I was so surprised at how quick it went. The doctor (not my usual doctor there) noticed the port I have for my insulin pump and started asking a bunch of questions about it. He didn't know much about insulin pumps and I basically gave him a brief tutorial. Courtney joked that we should bill him. I said that we should just call it even. He laughed. We still paid. It was worth a try, right?

Afterwards we came home and took a much needed nap. I was exhausted. The rest of the day and evening I've just been relaxing. The wait begins to test. I go back on the 22nd to have blood drawn and see if this was all worth it. Until then I have to take Prometrium twice a day up the who-ha. Can't wait.

I remember when we did the IUI for Delaney (2 yrs ago) I was thinking the same thing..that's it, that's all there is to it?!? :) Hope you are relaxing as much as you can during this tww- it's hard not to stress about it. Keeping you in my thoughts & prayers. Can't wait until the 22nd!! :)
