The dreaded 2ww

My wife and I are now 4days post IUI...we are excited about the possibilities that lie ahead and are trying to be nothing but positive. This is our first IUI and I am SO hoping to be a one hit wonder ;) I had heard about how hard the 2ww wait was, and boy was everyone right!! Trying my best to be patient....

 A little side note...We were very happy with our sperm count numbers and motility...90 million and 95% for motility. I'm just curious, what kind of numbers did other IUIers recieve regarding their sperm?

    Some very good advice I got when I came on board here was to go on dates every night of 2ww or do something special with your partner. I can't remember who it was but I remembered the advice. Our (many) 2ww were always speci

  • I lost my damn mind when I waited my TWW and I was on countdown to pregnancy  everyday  looking up different signs of pregnancy and when  got my period early on my 11DPO my heart was broken but, not my spirit!! That's what you have
