We Heart Eggy

Just some ramblings about the last couple of days:

We've starting calling the potential fertilized egg in SSG's nether-regions Eggy.  Why we feel the incessant need to name everything in our lives, I don't know.  I talk to Eggy and give it encouragement because somehow in my twisted mind I think that will help.  

After a super stressful Friday night and being in the car all day on Saturday (post IUI), I experienced exhaustion like I never have before.  I mean as a former HS/college athlete I know physical exhaustion but this was complete mental/physical exhaustion to the core.  I think we both passed out when our heads hit the pillows.  Eggy too.  

I am SOOOO glad that I was able to go for the IUI on Saturday.   We really owe a huge thank you to the midwife who was so flexible.  She was really great, which a great sense of humor which helped to keep us relaxed.  I have to so also that the experience was way more emotional than I anticipated.  I thought it was going to be all clinical but it wasn't.  It was really amazing.  I felt very connected with my wife.  It was just really special and something I obviously won't forget.  

So now we wait....I'm surprisingly very relaxed.

Three cheers for Eggy! I'm really glad it worked out for you to be there for SSG. And to get muffins afterwards :). We'll have to have a breakfast date soon. I'm sure that Eggy LOVES muffins.

Aww, I think its so great that you were able to do that together. Of course you found the experience amazing... it was the possible prelude to the conception of your future child! Yay!

:-) Go Eggy!! Divide, stick, and conquer! ;-)
