Any Takers?

This morning my DH and I took bets on how many eggs there would be cooking in my oven. I'm guessing 2 but he guessed 5! He thought my clomid effects were so much more than usual that this would mean big eggs. Then we had a discussion about whether or not to cancel if we had 5. I can't even imagine having 5 babies in utero. Ugh.

Question of the day, if you were having an IUI, how many eggs is too many to continue?

The good news is that I don't have to report for jury duty tomorrow, so as long as I have at least 1 ripe egg I'll be having an IUI tomorrow afternoon. Today my appointment was supposed to be at 9, but it got moved to 11:45. I'm just glad today's a holiday so I don't have to miss 2 days of work. As it is I feel badly about leaving early tomorrow, but I suppose we all have a season for being needy and having to ask others for help. It teaches humility, right?

Other than that I'm just enjoying a holiday morning and glad that the inaguration is tomorrow so I can move on to other topics in my Civics class. I'm not a hater, but I've been talking about the election for the past 3 months and I'm glad to talk about other things.

I will say that with this IUI I haven't felt particularly moved to talk about it. With other treatments there are people in my life whom I have let in to this IF part of me. But I just don't seem to have the gumption to bring it up now. I'm not embarassed, but I just think I'm still looking for the element of surprise on a pregnancy. I'm still a little messed up from this clomid I think.

I hope you all have a fabulous day and I'll look forward to actually having a few minutes to read your blogs from home. And just because I can only use google reader at work and can't leave comments doesn't mean I'm not praying for you and thinking about you ladies.

Knocked up in '09 here we come!

Most Dr.'s won't let you continue if there are 5 follicles. My experience was anything over 3, they tried to discourage me from doing...I did however do one cycle that had 4.

Best wishes...sure hope this cycle works for you!

my office cancels if you have 5. i hope you have a few great ones to work with..but not too many!!

To me, no amount of eggs is too many for an IUI. No matter what, you will have as many babies as your are meant to have.
TO me, 5 eggs sounds like a wonderful chance of BFP! But I could just be totally crazy.

I wish you lots of luck!

Best wishes! I can't wait to hear your news.

I would be happy to have 5! It's better than none. They don't all have to fertilize, right? :)

I can't imagine what 5 babies would do to a body. Whoa! Here's hoping and praying that it's a very high-quality 2-3! :)

Yipeeeee for no jury duty! Amazing how it's all falling into place, huh? Coincidence? I don't think so.

I agree. I have a feeling that 2009 is going to be the year of the knocked-up baby mama. *hugs* Keep us posted.
