IUI #3 is over

Happy to say that it went without a hitch. I had back to back IUIs yesterday and today. Mr F's counts were great at 60 and 50 million. My RE put me on progesterone supplementation this cycle. I will start these on Thursday. This is actually a first for me and I'm hoping that it only adds more positivity to this cycle.

My beta for this cycle will be on 12/22. Christmas is my favorite time of the year and I imagine that a bfn after all those follies, great counts, and progesterone support would really bum me out and put a bit of a damper on the holiday festivities. So, once again crossing my fingers for this cycle and hoping that I'll have something to be extra happy for this Christmas.

Speaking of, I'm nearly done with my shopping. I've got a few more things to pick up and a couple of presents to ship to family members but the majority of my shopping is done. This time of year can be difficult for me because to me Christmas=family but because we are so far away we don't get to see them every year. This time around it will just be Mr. F and me for the holidays. That being said, I'm also kind of relieved. I don't have to see my sister, hear about the baby, etc. I believe she is telling our extended family at the Christmas gathering. This would have been emotion overload for maybe it's better that it's just us this year.
