IUI #1 update

sorry i haven't posted until now, the weekend was a bit crazy with the holiday and all!

i had my first iui on friday, things went well. my husband had a sperm count of 21 million (yay!) and i had done my ovidrel shot the night before and we BD'd the night before too.

i know the drs tell me that i can't count on an OPK for ovulation b/c of the ovidrel but i did one anyway. they didn't start changing colors until saturday (it was a light line) and then sunday morning was darker. so i'm worried that we did everything too early.

thanks so much michelle! we were keeping things natural too, until my dr told me that she looked at my labs and it looked like i was a 48 year old woman not a 39 year old one. so alas we are going the iui route!

let me know how things are going with you!

From the size of your largest follicle, I don't think you have to worry that the IUI was too soon.
