This week is test week in our household. Tomorrow, A has his comprehensive exam for his masters degree. I am so proud of all the work he has done and cannot wait for this to be over for him! A is not a fan of standardized tests, so he is not terribly excited, but he has worked extremely hard for this degree. I know that the most recent miscarriage and the first IUI were huge distractions for him, and I feel terrible...unfortunately, that is our life right now, and I am thankful that A is better at compartmentalizing than me.
On Thursday, we have our mid-luteal phase blood draw. I realize this is not a test I should worry about, but I cannot help but be anxious. I blame this anxiety on two causes: 1) I am terribly hard to draw blood from. The record number of pricks it took to get my blood is 8, and that included one on the side of my calf and one behind my knee. 2) We have only gotten good results at this phase one time, so I don't have a good track record with this test.
For today and tomorrow, however, I am pushing needles from my mind and sending all the good vibes I can to my precious husband....Good luck, A!
