IUI – Two Week Wait February 5, 2010

I had my 2nd and most likely final IUI done this morning. Now comes the hard part, the dreaded 2 week wait. Every month this time becomes harder and harder. I have so many thoughts and feelings and try to remain cautiously optimistic but always get my hopes up just to be hit with that horrible pain when I do get my period and know that there will be no baby that month. That day is the hardest day of the month. There are lots of tears feelings of despair. I start to question everything and my faith is gone. I let myself grieve the thought of not being pregnant for a good day or two and then gear up to do it all over again the next month. I am constantly asking myself why I torture myself but the answer is simple, I want a baby. I want to create something that is a little bit of me and a little bit of my husband. I want to get a big belly and feel my baby moving around inside of me. I want to shop for baby things and decorate a nursery. I want to use my perfect baby name. I know the day that I finally do have a baby is going to be the Best day of mine and Matt’s lives and that is why I do this every month. ~Ashley
