Well the iui went off without much of a hitch. My cervix was playing hide & seek. So it took a few tries, but they got it. Clark's count was at an all time high of 7.2 million (washed)!! So that's good!

In other positive news, I tested negative for any blood clotting disorders. They put me on a l*w as.pirin as a precaution, but everything looked relatively normal.

So, I'm on the countdown. I ended up taking the day of and day after the iui off, for no other reason than I could. I was a bit tired and did some housework and rested the rest of the day.

I already an feeling guilty about anything I am consuming. Today I had one coffee and a sub with lunch meat. God, I have to stop over analyzing this crap. What's everyone's take on the new uproar over caffeine? I'm still drinking my one cup in the morning!

Congrats on the great sperm! How many times does one get to say that in a lifetime?? lol

I wasn't aware of a new uproar over caffeine. I didn't drink any caffeinated beverages during my pregnancy, but that's just me...I'm overly paranoid.

Hoping this month goes well for you guys...
Personally, I have never been a big caffeine person. I guess my opinion is "better safe, than sorry". Can you go decaf or just one cup of regular joe every other day? What does your doc say? I saw on the news that the risk of miscarriage really goes up with 5+ cokes/day and over 1 cup of coffee/day so you are probably fine. It is so hard not to over-analyze everything, isn't it?!?!?!

Sounds like things went great!!
As for the caffiene...I took it down to about 1 (maybe 2) Diet Cokes a day when I got pregnant. I usually drink 3-4 a day. I really didn't think it was that big of a deal because so many women do MANY worse things while pregnant but I just felt better knowing I had cut donw. There's no way I could cut it out completely though. My friend drank coffee throughout the day during her pregnancy and went full term with a healthy baby girl (that likes to sleep a lot!!)
