B2B IUIs done! — The Bump
Trouble TTC

B2B IUIs done!

Everything went well with both IUIs. Yesterday we 12 million motile sperm and today we had 40.5 million!! That's the most sperm he's ever produced for a sample, BY FAR! The nurse asked if he ate Wheaties this morning and he said, "No but I had Captain Crunch." LOL.

 Beta is scheduled 2 weeks from today, Feb.12th, which is also DH's birthday. Oh, I also have low progesterone so I get to start Endometrin tonight.  Yay.

Thank you guys for your thoughts, prayers and good sperm vibes!!

    Hey lady!  Yup, I'm on the vag supps.  Hating them already.  You were on them as well, right?  I complained to the nurse that they were kind of expensive from the pharmacy that they told me to get them through so she just gave me what they had at the office:)

    I've gotten some from the office but I agree, that pharmacy charges a lot for those supps, something like $3 a pill.  Wtf!
