Lots of Updates

Well lots have gone on latley that we need to catch up everyone on.

Tuesday we had our IUI. Everything went good with it. Nick's sample came back ok, his motility is on the low side of normal. We had a differnt girl do the IUI and I had an extreme amount of cramping and even some sharp pain during the IUI and some strong cramping all day tue and wed. I told nick I think she put the catherder futher up this time then before. I think she hit a fallopian tube :) So now we are on the 2ww. With 3 eggs hopefully one was able to be "our miracle". Today my cramping slowed down but Im feeing bloated. I am still having hot flashes due to the meds and Cathy ( my boss and great friend ) keeps laughing at me when I have to grab a stack of paper and fan myself down :)

Yesterday I also had my CF appt. My FEV1 was at 90% WHOOO HOOOO. That is what it was last time and I am so excited. It started out at 85% and I was able to get it up to 90% with the tech teaching me a little bit different of a way to blow during the test. So that was great, espically with the whole TTC thing going on. I need the best numbers I can get.

Well thats about it with us right now. Tomm morning I go to the accupunture doc for the first time. CF girls and girls dealing with infertility both swaer by it. It is suposed to help open up blood vessels and allow more blood to flow to your areas. So for the CF it is supposed to help open up the airways and for the infetility it is supposed to increase blood flow to the uterus which helps implantation. So I will let you all know how that goes!!

Love to you all!!
Alisha and Nick

Just Call Me....


I went for my ultrasound this morning and the clomid did its job. I have not 1, not 2 but 3 YES 3 large eggs. On the right side I have a 23 and 21 mm egg and on the left side I have a 20mm egg. They want you to have over 18mm to be considered a good egg that will release. SO with 3 that gives us a bigger target to hit, also means a chance for multiples. So I received my trigger shot at 9:45 this morning and will go in tomm at 2:30 for my IUI. I am having alot of cramping tonight, wondering if I am ovulating. You have to remember that we are doing this 2 days latter then last time so I am more closer to when I would naturally oulate. So who knows but heres to hoping :)

Our New Deck

Hey everyone,
We wanted to send everyone some pictures of our new deck and our new patio furniture. As most of you know our house was built in 1996, which means the deck was built in 1996 too. Needless to say that it was a big mess. I have always wanted a huge deck that we could enjoy in the summer. That is one of the best things to me is being able to sit outside on a sunny day. So here is what we have now................. (remember the old deck was 12x10 the new one is 16x35)

IUI #3 WITH MEDS :) Clomid this round

Well after 2 natural IUI's I wasnt having much faith with the natural way. So I called the doctor and asked if I could be put on fertlity meds for my next cycle and he said yes. The clomid is supposed to block the progesteron in your brain and tell your body to produce more eggs. So hopefully this will produce more eggs or just better quaility eggs. They warned me about the side effects of clomid and thankfully they havent shown up to much yet.

# 2 Offically a bust

Well today I started my cycle. For those of you counting with me I was 2 days late. Not really sure why since I am always on time. It could be the stress of losing a friend. Im not sure what it was but this time was much harder then last. Most of the day I was not in control of my emotions, I couldnt stop crying and didnt know why. Emotions ran very very high this past 2 weeks. All I have to say is that I have the best husband in the world, with all these emotions needless to say I have not been the nicest to him. I dont relize it when the emotions come out but afterwards I do. This journey has taken a hugh emotional toll on me and nick and I am so very blessed to have the most amazing man as my husband and always here with me! Thank you nick....I LOVE YOU!!
