Hope After Disappointments

I write this with tears in my eyes.

Beau and I had our first IUI done a few weeks ago and it was unsuccessful. 

You know, I thought I was prepared for it not to work but now I realize it's not something you can prepare for. I have been disappointed many times over this past year with each month or so my cycle starting but I was so full of hope that our IUI would work, it has been just heartbreaking. At times I wonder if I will ever be able to carry our children. Why doesn't my body work like it's supposed to? Ugh! Infertility sucks! 


Here a brief recap of the past month:

My cycle started and had my HSG to check to see how my tubes looked. Everything was clear so we were a go for our IUI! Started clomid and on day 14 of cycle went in for ultrasound to see if it worked. It did! I had 3 follicles that were a good size so I got my trigger shot. Two days later we had our IUI and everything went smoothly! A week later went in to check progesterone and it showed that I ovulated! Yay! And then we waited...

All I can say is those two weeks felt like a lifetime! I was very emotional the whole time, thinking one minute I might be pregnant and the next I wasn't! Well, as I said before it was unsuccessful. :(
