I'm home

Whew, its over. Today the office was very busy. I have never been in there when it was that active. It was also the first time I've ever seen other hubbys in too. We had to wait forever. Dh and I had decided to collect the specimen there in the office. We just had to much fear that something would happen to stop us from getting it there on time if had to travel it there. That is the worst part I do believe and dh and I both agree that if there has to be a next time, it won't be in the office.

I was very anxious/nervous whatever the right word would be. The anticipation is the worse part, plus not knowing what is going to happen or how. I had this fear trying to creep in that dh's specimen would not be good or that they would have an accident with it and kill em all. Having to wait so long didn't help this at all. Dh was calm, he spent the day soothing and encouraging me. He was so handsome with his big ole smile.

When they finally took me back, (I was glad that dh decided to stay and go with me) I was so afraid it was going to hurt or that she would have trouble getting through my cervix and would damage and scar me somehow. Can we say, "Crazy Thoughts!" The speculum was the worst part and she had to situate it a couple of times. This was VERY uncomfortable. The catheter didn't go through the *curve* of my cervix the first time so she had to remove it and bend the end. The second time she got it to go through with no trouble. I had some very minor cramping. I was just relieved it didn't hurt worse than it did.

Dh and I felt very good when we left the office. When I took him back to his truck and we said our goodbyes, I said, "I love you" and he said,"I love you too, or should I say I love ya'll." How sweet was that? So for the next 14 days we are speaking life into my womb in the name of Jesus!

I'll be checking in soon. Thank-you for all of your prayers! I'm looking forward to saying the sweetest words *I'm pregnant!* very very soon!

It was so emotional reading about your feelings (too familiar I guess). Then I got to the "ya'll" part and couldn't hold the tears in. What an awesome, amazing husband. It's not really fun for them either. I am really praying this works out for you guys! Blessings, Rebecca
