IUI

The IUI is complete! I have to admit the procedure itself was a little anticlimactic. After all of the preparation (peeing on what seemed like hundreds of OPK’s), research, and talking about it with B – the procedure itself seemed pretty dull.

The nurse practioner actually performed the IUI. She was very nice and explained everything to us before she began. B collected 114 million sperm and all of his other percentages where wonderful (I can’t remember the numbers, but she seemed impressed)! B later told me that what she was trying to say was that he should probably be selling the stuff! :)

She began the IUI by telling me that my mucus looked excellent – not really what a husband wants to hear when a lady is examining his wife’s girly parts. B handled it like a trooper though. In less than 5 minutes it was over and she told me that I now had millions and millions of sperm floating around my uterus in a mad dash to find the egg. I hope she was right!

Edited to Add: I forgot to mention the email I got from a good friend about 30 minutes before I left work to meet B at the clinic. She asked if the doctor’s would at least allow me to have drinks with the turkey baster first - to set the mood before the violation. That cracked me up (to the point I almost shot the water I was drinking out my nose!) and totally eased the tension/anxiety I was feeling. B and I truly are blessed to have wonderful friends – while we haven’t told most about the IF, the ones that do know have been so supportive.

Yay! That's so very exciting! Here's to hoping one little guy finds your egg! :)

It's over so quickly and so routine to the drs and nurses that it does feel a little anti-climatic. I joked that they should light some candles in the room, maybe play a little music, something to lighten the mood!

Glad it went well, thinking good thoughts!

Congrats on the IUI! The boys always love that pat on the back. We did several IUIs and my DH always wanted to know his stats!

Thanks for stopping by my blog. Lots of luck to you for this cycle!

I wanted to ask the lab to play some music when they fertilized our eggs, so I could later scar my children by telling them what song they were conceived to.

Good luck!

swim spermies swim spermies, it's your chance to shine! That's great numbers, hoping that one of them makes the made dash! Glad to hear that it was a quick and easy iui, mine was hell.

YAY, CONGRATS!! Your IUI sounded like a breeze. Some of mine have been a bit painful. Apparently, I have a tilted uterus. Not fun.
