It's happening

not again, and hopefully only once! In a few hours we will prayerfully begin growing the next generation of Boop's. After 2 weeks of being on some serious hormone medications I have 2 potential halves of the little one(s) deep inside of me. Hopefully Officer Boop will have the missing halves (or at least 1 missing half) and that little soldier will find its way. We will be getting assistance for O.B.'s little marching men. They will be collected, spun, washed, examined, then shot directly towards their target.

In technical terms they call this IUI, intrauterine insemination. Please don't get this confused with IVF. We aren't creating "test-tube" babies. We are just getting assistance with getting his sperm to where they need to be when my egg comes scooting down the fallopian tube and lands in my uterus. It's still a God thing, and He'll get all the praises or tears whatever happens.

So, for the next 2 weeks you will probably see more of me. I will be here venting my frustrations and worrying like crazy. It's so hard not to POAS (google it)!

Nurse Betty L. Boop said...

Gretchen, you are too funny. No, I haven't even seen the mug, I'll have to google it myself!

Yes, God is large and in charge! This whole infertility stuff has really been what brought me back to Christ *praise* And we are working hard on my DH. Thanks so much!!!!!!
