Sperm on board!

So after a crummy night waiting for the midwife to call us back we finally went to bed at about 11 with the idea that I would call them at 6 am to have the midwife paged again. I actually slept really well last night. Woke up to the alarm at 6 and called the service. The midwife called me back in 20 min and was confused because while we were stressing last night the midwifes spoke to each other and made a plan. Too bad they forgot to tell us! Anyway, after speaking to one midwife I waited for a 2nd to call me back. She wanted to do the iui at 9 but I talked her into doing it at 8 so that Shazam could be there.
So at 8 we arrived at the office and after some paper work I was on the table ready to put my feet in the stirrups. The worst part of the iui was the speculum. Not painful just uncomfortable. It took a bit to get the catheter through into the uterus because I have an oddly tilted cervix. I knew this before because several doctors have told me "I can't find your cervix" during my annual exams. So after some snaking around the midwife said she would try for 5 more minutes then just do an ici. Not what I wanted to hear but my cervix was open so I thought it would be ok. The second she said this however I felt it slip in and we were all set. After the sperm were inserted the midwife left Shazam and I to relax for 30 min. I listened to the Swim! Swim! play list that Shazam made me on my ipod.
So I currently have sperm swimming in my fallopian tubes hopefully meeting up with an egg. How am I going to make it through the next 14 days?
