Less than a week until the first ICI, and hopefully not much longer until the sperm meets the egg :D Right now because of weather there has been issues getting mail. Fingers crossed I don't have that issue next week. I'm not sure how long it will take to ship, how long the sperm will last, and if there is even a small chance that this will work but I'm hoping so. This month might be a wash if shipping is messed and the sperm all die but it really only takes one so hopefully that one will make it's way to where it needs to be. Otherwise next cycle I will know for sure what days mail will be coming so I can plan accordingly. But I really hope there is no need for a "next cycle". I'm really excited to be trying again, I hate waiting so much. Although I know it will be hard to live in two week intervals (waiting to try, waiting to find out, then possibly back to waiting to try) I know it will be totally worth it in the end. It's also yet another expense but it's so cheap that I'm not going to worry about it because again it will be worth it in the end. If I wasn't trying to bank as much money as possible it wouldn't be a big deal and once I'm pregnant I will be able to bank the money I would be spending on trying. Right now I bank about 50% of my income a month, which is great because on maternity leave I will only make 55% (plus child tax of about $200 a month). Since I will be living with my parents during that time I will have minimal expenses compared to here. Combined with my savings (which I feel will dwindle quickly once I start buying baby stuff lol) I should have no issue affording the full year of maternity leave.
Anyway, I'm excited to get going again, I just want everything to go smoothly and to get two lines on November 16th when I test :D
