On sperm and sculptures

We’re officially in the TWW again after a busy day involving a trip to IKEA for office furniture, Wagamama for lunch (yeahhh, get us) and, of course, the clinic for sperming-up.

The nurse had to try twice because she couldn’t get the catheter in the first time, so I had to lie on the bed thing and talk to vee and drink more water and wait for my bladder to fill. Fun. We were a bit worried that the sperm spent this 20 minutes out in the syringe, but we were assured that it was fine and they could “last for hours”, apparently.

They’d better! In fact, they had better be swimming in my ovaries as I type.

Strangely, the nurse didn’t take me seriously when I suggested that they could save up all the used disposable speculums (of which we went through two), give them a good wash and make a big sculpture out of them, because they are un-recyclable.

But anyway, may 2011 be the year in which BB gets to be a sibling!

    When I read your sentence, “May 2011 be the year…” I said to myself, “Well, of course it will be!” and then remembered that the fates DO still have to work their magic. One forgets sometimes. 😉

    Sending good thoughts for 2011 and the TWW. Swim,swim!


  8. oops – meant to post that here: 2011 is a great year for a sibling!!


  9. I’m thinking that since BB was born a few months after Little J it would be fitting for BBS (bonus ball sibling) to be born a few months after Little J’s sibling (who is due in August)! And since we are also switching up with uterus that is carrying this time around it would be perfectly parallel. I definitely vote for a 2011 sibling for BB!!!


  10. A very belated comment to let you know we’re thinking of you and rooting for you (and have been since the big day which I can’t believe is already a whole week ago) and hoping for another set of transatlantic twins. 🙂
