My second IUI will be on tomorrow, March 11, 2011. Here's how my day started off. I woke up at 5 am because my bladder was about to explode. While I was awake I decided to test for ovulation using one of the cheap sticks. Well it was positive for ovulation. When I use those particular tests, I use the urine in a cup method. After I tested, I got back into bed and left the cup of urine on the bathroom sink counter. I then went back to sleep and woke up at around 7am to get ready for the day. One thing that I have learned since I've been doing infertility treatments is that I can always tell when I am ovulating. When I ovulate, I cramp just as it is with a period cramp. I requested to be off of work on this day and the next day so that was a plus. Since I knew that I ovulated, I said I would confirm it with the Clear Blue Easy test. I dipped the test into the same urine and I waited about 3 minutes and I got a big circle and was expecting the smiley face. It threw me for a loop! My fingers were already crossed tight hoping and praying to ovulate on this particular day because I did not want to end up having to go to the clinic over the weekend. After the disappointment of the circle, I figured that I would test again during the times that I am supposed to test which is from 11am until 2pm. When it was time to test, of course we were not at home. I ended up testing in Belk and when the results appeared, I was sitting in the men's shoe department on a comfy leather sofa. I told DH that it was a smiley face and he smiled. I then called the nurse, left a voice message and she called back at about 1:15pm with my appointment at 10:00 on March 11, 2011.
