IUI #2 Complete!


Everything went fine. E’s numbers were at 16.3 million at 97% motility. Definitely above the required 5 million but less than last time (29 million at 98% motility). The nurse couldn’t exactly tell me why I was told to give the injection last night at 11 but she said that based on the follicle size and the lining of my uterus they would rather do the IUI sooner rather than later but atleast she recognized my concern at the procedure being done 15 hours past trigger. She said that we should not have sex tonight and wait until tomorrow to be sure but that she wouldn’t move forward with the IUI today if she didn’t feel the timing was appropriate so that made me feel a little bit better.

She had a really hard time getting the catheter to go through the second hole in my cervix. My legs started to shake they were up for so long but she got it done. I kept telling her to take her time, I would rather it be a slow process and her get it right then her rush and miss something. At least all the poking didn’t hurt, was just a weird pressure. When it was over she let me lay there for 20 minutes instead of the 10 I did last time.

Oh! Also, we discussed the next cycle if this doesn’t work. I was thinking they would make me take the next cycle off since my CD1 should be 11/22 and that is the day we are leaving to go down to ATL for 9 days. However the nurse said that since I haven’t had any issues with the last two months Dr. M may let me do my 5 days of meds without doing the CD3 bloodwork. So, that’s something.

Now I am home and on the couch for a few hours. E and I plan to go to dinner tonight and then to a movie. He really wants to see Thor and I am indifferent so he wins but I think I get to pick where we eat 🙂
