IUI #2… Tomorrow?!


This morning I had my second ultrasound after Monday’s showed 4 small follicles. Today’s resulted in 2 follicles: one at 23mm and one at 17mm. I thought; ok, great. IUI Saturday. Well they just called and they want to do the IUI tomorrow… I am a little concerned for two reasons:

1) That mean’s we have to have sex tonight but that doesn’t give a whole lot of time for E to replenish his stash which means his numbers may be a good bit lower tomorrow compared to the last IUI

2) They said I shouldn’t take my Ovidrel injection until 11 tonight… Last time I had to take it 36 hours before the IUI. This would be barely 12 hours. I asked her on the phone about it but she said that they usually do the injection 24-36 hours before and then she went into something else and I got distracted. Well that’s not the case here. Why shouldn’t I atleast take it now? I don’t even have any signs of Ovulation?? I tried calling back but of coarse I was like their last person to call so now it’s going to their emergency number. I hope that is all ok… Maybe because that big one is ready to ovulate? Every where I read online says that IUI/TI should be performed 24-36 hours after injection. Anyone with experience around this?

Well I had to quickly take tomorrow off and so did E but we are scheduled for him to go in at 12 and then come back 2 for the procedure. Fingers crossed

  1. Hoping for the best! Every month’a schedule can be different so hopefully they know what they are talking about.

  2. Best of luck! I’m having my IUI tomorrow morning too- 9:45 am!

  3. You can also have “relations” after the IUI. I would probably do it again on Saturday am just to cover my bases. Good luck!!
