Well, I am quickly approaching the end of my two week wait after having my IUI. The first week went by very quickly. This second week has been a little harder.
I honestly know that I am probably not going to have any idea either way if it worked or not until I actually get the phone call with my blood work results back. The mind is a funny thing though. My mind is definitely working over time. Every little thing that my body feels I am analyzing it. I can have myself talked into the fact that it for sure worked I just feel it and then back to no it didn't work there is no way it worked in a five minute time period.
I try to think to myself that I shouldn't think about it so much because it is total out of my hands. There is nothing that I personally can do at this point that would make the outcome any different. It is what it is no matter how I am going to feel about it.
The one thing I know is if the outcome is negative then I am going to be sad. I am so tired of being sad and disappointed. I want it to be my turn to be happy and excited. I want it to be my turn to tell my family good news. I want it to be my turn to sit with my husband and daydream about what our baby will look like or if it's a boy or girl, or what we are going to name it. I want to paint a nursery and pick out baby clothes and grow a nice big belly that kicks people when they touch it.
The hopeful side of me is saying maybe this is it for me. Maybe my turn has finally come and I can move on from this chapter of my life. Then there is the side that says don't get your hopes up. What makes this time any different from the last. Protect your heart and hope for the best but expect the worst.
I guess either way there is no way to prepare myself for good news or bad news. It is going to be whatever it is meant to be. Whatever God has planned for me. Let's hope this will be my last two week wait!
