Today is my day off, so I browsed the Cryobank's Facebook page to see if anything new was going on. Not really-- except that somebody said they had heard using Mucinex would thin out cervical mucus to make it easier for sperm to travel. Someone countered that Robitussin had worked for her pregnant friends and that was probably the same thing.
Heather has been prenatal vitamins all this time and I guess we should have been pouring cough syrup down her throat instead. I e-mailed Nurse Nina, but I suspect she'll say it's a crackpot theory. Probably that's true, but each time I e-mail her or ask a question, I feel as though she disapproves and thinks we're foolish.
It isn't that she's not right-- there are plenty of things we don't know and don't understand, and I suppose it's hard not to say "Shut up and follow my advice"-- but I wish sometimes she'd do more hand-holding and let us know we're doing some things right. We already feel foolish, so a "Hey, that's a good idea. I'd never heard that" would go a long way.
Heather goes in for her next blood test tomorrow afternoon and we hope to inseminate in January. In the meanwhile, I suppose we'll hold each other's hands.
