I had my IUI this morning and it went better than the others which I totally liked. It was still very uncomfortable but at least I didn't burst into tears. I think the valum helped calm me down before the procedure and they got it done on the first shot. Last time, they have to put in / take out the speculum 4 times which made things a million times worse.
I was very happy with the post wash sperm count because per doctors orders, we BDed on Wednesday night with IUI on Friday. I was worried his count would be lower because of that. Last time his post wash count was 22 or 24 million (I can't find that paper that states that). His post wash count today was 35.5 million. The interesting thing was his volume was 1.5 ML which is the bottom end of what they like to see. I looked back to his rock star sperm count in June and his volume was 2.1 ML with 92.9 million post wash. I am happy with the 35.5 million because anything over 5 is good.
I really really hope it works this time. I am going to try to stay positive this cycle to see if positive vibes help. I know it is silly but I want to pull out all the stops this month.
