Completed IUI #1 today. Go back tomorrow for the 2nd round. Everything went fine once we got in. 45 minutes after our appointment was supposed to be Justin was finally able to make his “deposit”. Then it was another hour wait until it was ready. I called into work and said I wouldn’t be in today. I’ll probably go in tomorrow afternoon.
The insemination went well. Justin’s count: 100 million, 89% motility! One thing everyone at the clinic has said to us is that Justin is VERY fertile. He’d probably have 20 kids by now if he’d married a fertile woman. The nurse today even said she went back to the technicians to check and make sure the numbers were right and there hadn’t been a mistake! She said she’d never seen a count so high. Crazy! Our last IUI the count was high as well. If think it was 95 million the first day and around 80 the second. Still, you could split that fertility among 3 guys and they’d still be doing well for themselves! (Strange the things that can be bragged about in the IF world!)
Lots of pain for the procedure. I don’t know if all you IUI vets out there have experienced the same thing, but it’s always quite painful for me. I told my husband when we left I always feel like they should buy me dinner first at least! I also like to joke about 2 ladies making a baby. Today I said I’d call up the Christian Coalition and let them know that it is possible for 2 women to make a baby! *wink*
We were also able to get about a months worth of progesterone before we left. They hadn’t made a perscription for me yet so when we asked she came back with 2 boxes!!! Yay. Saves us about $200! Like I said, we go back again tomorrow and then start the meds on Thursday.
Spent the day lounging on the couch watching True Blood (HBO Series) and Run, Fatboy, Run (movie). Both excellent. I love Simon Pegg. Will keep you all updated on the progress of everything.
