NEWSFLASH! I Have A Beautiful Uterus!

I went in for baseline labs and an ultrasound this morning because my period came yesterday. That was unexpected because I should have ovulated about a week ago. First I was told that I have a beautiful uterus for like the one hundredth time. Ha ha. Then the nurse said "Oh!" and then called my nurse into the room to see what she was seeing. My follicles are still there! Weird. Needless to say, this cycle is canceled already and I was told to use a barrier or to not have intercourse at all for the next month. Also, my nurse wants me to skip these next two IUI's and go straight to IVF. She said that I am an over responder and that what she was seeing is what every woman wants their ovaries to do. That's a good thing. I am nervous about IVF, but SO ready for it! I was so ecstatic this morning that I almost teared up twice on the way to work. We are getting so close. I can feel it. Our appointment with the RE to discuss this is set for the morning of September 16th.

In other news, Mike and I finally broke down and had a DNA test done on our 3 year old male dog. We adopted him from Midwest Beagle Rescue, Education & Welfare in 2010. His mom was a 20 pound beagle. Mackey is 56 pounds. We knew that he must be mixed with a bigger dog. He is "built like a brick house" like Mike says. The DNA test came back that he is an American staffordshire terrier, basset hound, beagle mix. Our other pup is a beagle/basset hound mix, and he looks nothing like her. He's my cutie and I am so happy to actually know what he is instead of just guessing...or telling people that he is a beagle mix if they asked....which people ALWAYS do! After finding out about the AST part, I read about them and their personality matches his perfectly. Thank the Lord for a dog who actually wants to please his owners! The other dog is so independent and does not listen well at all...unless a treat is offered. :)

Hooray for having a beaut of a ute! You are right, you're getting CLOSE! What a feeling! I never thought about having a doggie DNA test- that's awesome you know what your pup is! We have a rescue Jack Russell and he is also a lot bigger than other JRT's and is very solid, so we always wondered about him. Well, he's a total weirdo, so we wonder A LOT about him in general :)

I am so glad I found your blog! We are also going through infertility and will be doing our first IVF in mid October. I'm nervous, but very excited for it to almost be here! I am ready to be a momma, just like you are!
