An EGGcellent morning.....

So between dh's dreaded donation time (do all guys pout so much about going into a room and shooting it in a cup?) And my iui time we went to breakfast and I had an awesome omelet.
But, on to the important stuff. 144 million for the count. As the nurse put it "stellar" "rock star". The iui went well, some mild cramping but nothing major. Then I watched 20 minutes of regis and Kelly and the do's and don'ts of self tanning while my hips were propped up with pillow. She told me to start my progesterone on Monday and testing on 22nd!

Fingers crossed!

Andi

Wow that is awesome numbers Andi!! Yay!! I would imagine most guys do have some reservations, I know I wouldn't want to go in there and be told to go in a little room, have an orgasm, then let us measure that orgasm in a cup!! We at least don't have to actually have sex when we go in for our part of the procedure, it is more personal for them! Here is hoping the 2ww flies for you!! =)

That is UNREAL count! That was post wash? DH never got about 50! I am also super jealous you have a TV to watch! I always had to read a magazine, you know how hard it is to read a magazine while lying on your back? You eventually drop it cause your arms get tired and it lands on your face. Extra funny for your husband because it happened while your feet are in the air with no pants on.

I guess post wash that was the only number she gave me. She held up the tube and was like, "look how concentrated that is, see how its cloudy. That's awesome!". So you would think that with all those sperm one will find an egg, right? This tww is going to be ridiculous!

Ugh I have used that same logic so many times. When you have regular old timed intercourse you are lucky if a couple thousand make it to the uterine cavity. An IUI outs millions and millions up there and they even weed out the "sub par" sperm. It's really hard to imagine how anyone could NOT get pg that way!

She told me to start Monday am but I usually only use it at night since it is a once a day dose. I'll probably start it Sunday night.

Have you done progesterone before? If not, I apologize in advance for your side effects.
