One year ago ...

One year ago today I underwent my 4th IUI.  My temp rose that morning so I thought I was completely out.  I was bummed thinking that I'd missed the window and was out $700+ for sperm and nursing fee.  I refused to temp post-O or test until 15 dpiui that cycle and it was much less stressful particularly as I thought it hadn't worked. 

It wasn't until I didn't spot 1-2 days before my expected period that I thought something might be up.  I'd experienced no symptoms out of the norm, especially for someone on progesterone.  I couldn't sleep the night before I tested at home.  I woke up at about 3:30 and told myself I couldn't get up to go to the bathroom and had to try to get back to sleep (hard for me to do if I feel I need to go) because I needed to store the pee for the test.  So when I woke up early all on my own I got up and tested.  And I got a beautiful second line before the control line came up.  I knew when I got the call from the clinic's nurse that my test was positive and the numbers only confirmed that.

And one year later here is my little guy at his 3 month photo shoot:

And I apologize for being a crappy blogger.  I've gone from ttc'ing blogger, to pregnancy blogger to almost non-existent mommy blogger.  I'm still trying to get used to being a mom and doing everything on my own.  I have zero help from family so I have little time to post here right now.  Hopefully, once I get into a better routine I will have more time to pop in and post.
