JEN, KARA, and PARKER JOHN

Task Complete

Well, we did it. We went to the doctor on Sunday and Kara is now insemminated. There is a 25% chance she is pregnant. Not a very high likelihood, but we're still hopeful and staying optimistic.

The insemination was quite the process, but it went very quickly. First we had to wait for the sperm to thaw (never thought I'd say that!). Then it was time for the procedure. Jen (that's me) was the doctor's assistant and got to hold the sperm twice. Yippee or is it yucky? Anyway, the doctor used a small catheter to insert the sperm into Kara's uterus after dilating her cervix. That's when Kara seemed to be in the most pain, during the dilation. After that we were done. We just had to sit with Kara's behind in the air for 20 minutes.

We got back in about a week to have a blood test to make sure Kara did ovulate and then if she doesn't get her next menstrual cycle (everyone keep your fingers crossed and the good vibes coming!) we do a pregnancy test on the 31st.

I know you have been wanting to be mothers for some time now, and I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you!

Only one more week until you can take a pregnancy test! I wonder if Kara has been waiting?!

Good luck to you both!

Sorry it's been so long since I've read your blog. Life has slowed down a bit.
