Not another 2 week wait

So for those of you keeping count (haha) this is our 41st cycle of trying to conceive. 40 failed cycles and still holding lots of hope in our hearts that this 41st cycle could bring our miracle.

IUI numero cinco went smoothly on Saturday. Steve's count was wonderful as usual. We didn't do back to back this month. IUI's a pretty uncomfortable and I didn't want Steve to miss that much work. So my mom went with me Saturday for the procedure. She's really good at holding my hand. Afterwards we went to lunch and then she bought me a pair of new shoes for work.

***gross things ahead..stop now if you are faint of heart***

Each month I find things to be hopeful about during the cycle. However this month I had my 2nd cycle ever that I had egg white cervical mucous. EVER! This is a terrific sign of ovulation.

So back in the 2 week wait (more like 3 since I can't call my RE until the 29th!) and praying and hoping and doing everything possible to convince my body to make a baby!
