IUI #2 is done and now we wait.
IUI #2 I think went better than IUI#1 in a couple of different ways. One, they were not nearly as busy as they were yestserday so I sat down in the waiting room and was called back soon after. I made it to work maybe 15 minutes late and made it in time for my meeting. Yea for that. Secondly, I knew what to expect so I was a little bit less nervous and my muscles relaxed more, which made things easier. Third, our count went up! We went from 9.5 million to 13 million! So yea for that. I was worried since we were doing it two days in a row. When she was actually doing the iui she had to use a qtip to move some cervical mucus out of the way so she could see. I had cervical mucus! Haha! I have also been very crampy all morning and when she was doing the iui my muscles contracted even more which I hope made the spermies go up even further.
Question for you all – do you help your husband when he is collecting a sample in any way? I have felt bad both mornings in that I haven’t been in a mood to help him since I have just woken up and have all my thoughts of what is going to happen today running through my head. The first day I helped a little, but today I did not. I was just wondering what everyone else does. This whole IF process has also decreased my libido a lot and it was already decreased to begin with so I feel kinda bad about that as well. I also feel bad that I’m kinda glad we are doing iui’s because that means I don’t have to schedule se.x for three days. Oh well.
So now I wait. This has been my best cycle yet and I hope that it brings me my first bfp ever. My beta is on Sept 22nd. My dad’s birthday is the 23rd. What a cool birthday present that would be. *fingers crossed*
