Dildo cams, growing eggs, and frozen pre-seed – oh my!

Currently, it is a frigid – 28C outside, but it feels like -39C with the wind chill (For you Americans, that means it feels like -38.2F). BRRRRRRR

Even with the clomid crazies, I still have my sense of (in)fertile humour. This morning while texting my bestie, who lives in balmy Toronto, I told her I hoped my eggs didn’t freeze on the way to my appointment. Hahahaha. Lame. I know, but whatever keeps me laughing is what I need right now.

CD 10. Follicle monitoring ultrasound #1.

My largest follicles are measuring 13. The Clomid must have worked since I’m measuring about a week sooner than my last drug-free cycle.

Our game plan is to get reacquainted with the dildo cam at 8 am on Monday morning. By then, my follicles should be measuring large enough to trigger ovulation. At this appointment, we will also go over how/when to give the HCG shot.

My guesstimate for first IUI: Wednesday December 11.

As I sit here digesting all of this information, I all of a sudden realize…

OMG what if my pre-seed freezes?

Yes folks. You got it right. Clomid made my cervical mucus not-so-normal anymore.

I won’t deny. I used to be proud of how textbook my CM was. If there was a CM contest, I would have submitted a photo. Perfect egg white. Every time… until now.

This week, I sent my hubby on a manhunt throughout our city to find pre-seed – the only fertility friendly lubricant. My hubby came home empty-handed and grumbled that he was never doing that again. He even asked two pharmacists for their help and checked three different pharmacies.

All our local stores are sold out???? Even though the one website said 5 in stock! Seriously, how does pre-seed disappear like that? Or is society just not willing to admit how many (in)fertiles actually live here?

Anyway, I turned to my best friend Mr. Google and found makeababy.ca – a Canadian company that sells pre-seed and also offers Xpresspost shipping. Bingo!

My fertile-friendly lubricant should arrive before Monday. And if it’s not frozen to my mailbox when I get home, I am seriously contemplating working from home on Monday to await its arrival.

Oh the crazy things us (in)fertiles do!

  1. Good luck with your first IUI! Keeping fingers crossed for you. I’ve used Pre-Seed before. Not sure if you have yet, but just in case go easy on the dosage. Start with a small amount ’cause it sure can be slippery…lol.
