Question: Mommy, how are babies made?Answer: Well, one day mommy goes to the doctor. It’s only day 13 of her cycle and she has never triggered before day 17. She makes bets with daddy about how big her follicles will be, deciding on one 12, one 13.
Mommy lies down in a dark room with a nice woman who looks inside her at her right ovary. There aren’t many baby seeds in there, and what’s there are very small. The biggest is 12mm, just exactly like mommy thought.
But then. THEN! The nice lady looks at mommy’s left ovary and we are all so excited! There are two beautiful baby seeds on that side! One just over 18 mm and one at 21! Mommy, daddy, the nice woman at the ultrasound machine, and Dr. Lovely are all pleasantly surprised that the baby seeds grew so fast.
It’s time for mommy to get a little shot. Usually, the nurse gives this shot there at the doctor’s office, but mommy is a slacker and hasn’t even picked up the shot from the pharmacy yet (because seriously, she thought she had at least three more days before she needed it).
So mommy and daddy go to Meijer to get the baby-making juice. They both have to go back to work, and mommy doesn’t want to do the baby-making juice shot in the car. So mommy and daddy walk into the Meijer family bathroom together, and get some weird looks from the Meijer staff sitting having a soda break.
They probably knew that mommy and daddy were going in there to try to make a baby, but they probably couldn’t guess the specifics.
Daddy gives mommy the baby making shot that makes her break out in big ugly pimples.
To be continued…
That’s right…IUI #2 is scheduled for 4 pm tomorrow. A good 4-5 days earlier than I thought it would be. I guess that’s good. Apparently my left ovary is in overachiever mode this time around. I’m still not excited but the bitch cloud that has been following me around for the past two days has lifted. Thankfully.
