Victory! IUI#3 today — The Bump
Trouble TTC

Victory! IUI#3 today

1.  I had a really good acupuncture session today.  She asked if I was bloated and I said yes and she said "let's fix that" and put a lot of needles on my belly and I feel so much better now.

2. I got a really nice NP.  I told her how much trouble the last IUI was because my cervix was "angry" or so the last nurse claimed and she was really gentle and reassuring.  Not too much pain this time around.

3.  Pretty much our best sperm sample ever!  I got H FertilAid but he hasn't been taking it reguarly because he keeps forgetting (grrr) and I had him do his sample at the office instead of at home.  8.44 million motile sperm, way better than the 4.5 we had last time around.  Still not amazing but I'll take it.  Highest motility ever (50%!).  Maybe his morning coffee helped?  Who knows.

4.  I convinced the NP to schedule a 7DPO progesterone check for me even though they usually don't do them for IUI cycles so I will get some sort of idea how many eggs I produced from my (NINE) follicles.  I've never had one before so I'm anxious to have one more piece of data to analyze in my two week window.

Please send happy no POASing for 13 days vibes my way.

And get your man to make his deposit in the room.  I swear both times he's done it there have been way better!

Re: Victory! IUI#3 today

  • So how does the progesterone tell you how many eggs produced?  I havn't heard of this, fill me in if you can. Glad things went positively today for you.  Good luck.

    Oh it doesn't, lol.  What I meant to say was I want to know how strongly I ovulated.  Both this cycle and my previous ones I had some weird low estrogen level thing happening that no one can really explain to me why so I want to know if 1) I did ovulate and 2) I ovulated multiple eggs.  There's really no way to tell the latter (although a really high one could be a sign) but for the former they say they want to see the level at 15 for a medicated cycle.

  • Glad to hear! All the best to you!

    I was actually worried that DH might get stage fright during our two IUI's. He had the option to provide the sample at home, but said he would provide it at the office (which surprised me!!). Both times he texted me shortly after he got there to let me know he was on his way to work....ha ha, already? You go boy! 

    Glad we had a couple of trial runs before our IVF cycle. ER is in August, and I won't be so nervous for him this timeWink
