I think I mentioned last week that after J and I sent our the email about our situation to my parents, my mom sent me a text message saying that should would give me a call on Sunday. So, yesterday she called and it was fine. Actually, better than fine. She just asked if I was ready or wanted to talk about it and I said it kind of depends what you want to know. She said they just wanted to make sure I was okay and to know that I wasn't alone. I was really general with her for now. Basically just that we know that there is a problem, but we are sure what's causing it so we're starting some treatments. She also asked if I was okay with the treatments because she knows that I'm not good with a lot of that stuff (needles, shots, medical stuff), but I assured her that for now I thought it would be fine. Basically at the end of the conversation I felt really good - I know that I can call and tell her more details whenever I want, but for now I really want to just see how this first IUI works out before I tell her a bunch more details.
She also asked if we had heard from J's parents, which we have not. She knows that I have a very strained relationship with them. They say things all the time that are upsetting to me. I know they don't mean to, it's just the way they say things, but I've been very nervous about how them knowing about our IF would play out. So far, they haven't responded, so who knows? I asked J if he's going to follow up with them if he never hears back, but so far I don't think he knows what he wants to do.
Today is also CD 9. My HSG is tomorrow and I'm crossing my fingers that it's simple, the results are good, and that I can go back to my office in the afternoon. I hope I'm not asking for too much :)
