It's done

The IUI took place this morning. I finally found an appropriate name for the not so new RE: Dr. Careful. Not only has she always been very careful with the vaginal ultrasound transducer, she was also extra careful today with the speculum.

She had troubles getting the cannula through my cervix (to the left! to the left!) and warned me I might bleed, but I didn't.

The cramping though, that could not be helped. I cramped about the same as I did with my previous IUIs with Dr. Mediocre.

And here's one more aspect where Dr. Careful is being extra-careful when Dr. Mediocre wasn't: She is prescribing baby aspirin and progesterone suppositories. I know, yuck, but still, anything that helps is welcome.

So here I am, embarking into my 2ww, trying not to think about it too much.

What do you do when you do not want to think about something? What helps?


  1. Good luck. When I don't want to think about something - well, I'm pretty hopeless at managing that, but things like computer games, DVDs, or keeping busy with lots of people around so I can't dwell all help.

  2. good luck sweetie!!!!!! the 2WW sucks, I find the first week fine and the 2nd week total hell. Stay very busy with mindless activities, any movies you want to see??? thinking of you...

  3. I never found a great way to deal with the 2ww, it's so hard!! I'd say keep yourself busy and surrounded by fun friends!!

  4. wishing you the best of luck and I can't help with the waiting as I never went thru IUI or IVF, but I will pray the 2ww goes quickly and you can keep very busy. Love those socks!
