IUI #2 CD 4

Injection this evening - check
Feeling like crap - check
doggie diarrhea on our upstairs carpet - check

I woke up around midnight to my hubby coughing and the light on in the other room. I asked what was going on and he said our dog came upstairs and had diarrhea all over our carpet. He was scrubbing away in the other room, and when I woke up this morning it didn't look too hot in there. Thankfully, he was able to go and rent a steam cleaner this afternoon and the rug is in much better shape now. It's not even noticable anymore. I was getting worried we would have to replace the carpet, but I don't think that will be necessary.

I hadn't been feeling great this past weekend, but this morning I felt the worst. My throat has been bothering me, but I woke up around 6 with intense ear pain. I got the heating pad and that helped some, but my ear is still plugged now. I ended up staying home and resting. I had cancelled my first few kids of the day and then got up to shower and make breakfast and realized how awful I was feeling. I am hoping today was the worst and that I will start to feel better and be up for a full day of work tomorrow. I don't usually get sick despite being around lots of kids and sickness. In the past 3 weeks I have come down with 2 separate colds. I'm not exactly sure why but it could be that W is currently working with kids as well. I think my immune system can only handle so many germs. I didn't go to the doctor and am hoping the fluid drains from my ear without antibiotics. I hate to take more drugs right now. 

While looking at the calendar today I was amazed to write in W's graduation. It almost doesn't seem real since we have been waiting on this for so long (a 3 year doctorate program plus 2 years of prerequisite classes.) We will know by the time he is done with this clinical whether this round worked. I am hopeful and can't wait to clap the loudest when he walks across the stage! Now we just need to get our evites out for the party.

Appointment and ultrasound tomorrow. 


  1. Sorry for the rough day... the meds are never fun. I constantly have to remind myself of the end goal, but it doesn't necessarily take away the unpleasant symptoms and side effects. Hope you feel better soon. :(

  2. Ugh not a great start to the dog likes to vomit at stupid hours of the morning all over the carpet...never fun to clean up!

    Sorry you are suffering from side effects. Never fun either. :(

    Sending hugs. xx

  3. Oh no! I know from experience that dog crap is the hardest thing to get rid of..the steam cleaner worked for us too. Sorry you had to go through that on top of feeling like crap!

    Good luck at your appt today...I have one too!
