Secondary IF

Finally - IUI #2

We finally made it to iui #2.  Performed yesterday.  I'm sorry I have been missing from here.  After having a super long cycle, I was worried I would miss my surge and not be able to get to iui again.  Dh sample wasn't ideal, and they said looked lower than his last sa.  So, although hopeful that this cycle will be it, I am preparing myself for having to give it another try.  I have a progesterone check in 1 week and then wait for AF or our BFP.  Felt kinda bloated and uncomfortable just before o, hoping that was a sign of good things.

Well 2ww, here we go.

  • April, I'm glad you were finally able to proceed!  I've been following your story, and was hoping you would get the go ahead.

    Hope you and MJC both have successful IUIs this cycle!
