That sums it up. This is our last chance/last ditch effort at conceiving via IUI before moving onto IVF/FET in February. I’m nervous as all get out! Seriously I’m in the break room at work and I’m getting sick to my stomach with nerves.
I feel like it’s our first time all over again. All the same excitement, opposition, wonder and anxiety. Only, my wife could not come today, my body made things difficult to plan around this month for sure. So I’ll go this last one alone.
I know she will be at work thinking about it the whole time and I’ll be thinking of her the whole time so really I won’t be alone at all, just in the physical sense. Thank goodness I have nothing to do afterward so I can go home and relax.
I’m currently laying on the bed in the fertility clinics room after my very last IUI. The new donors count was over 16million (over the ten we wanted) so we decided to spare the last vial for Kate next year. I’m great up that it was a good count and the doctor seems pleased. I’ve been feeling ovulation pains/bloating and reassure since 9:30am and it’s now 3:00pm, so I am hoping we got the timing down well. Good count and good timing with four fully mature follicles sounds good.
Oh yeah…so a few days ago I got my follicles checked and I have a whopping 4 follicles between 24-27mm with a lining over 8.5mm. Thems’ some juicy apples lol.
The doctor said yet again “scary” and I replied with, “you always say that”. He does, this is the doc I see the most often but don’t like cause he is awkward and not good at IUIs. Again this time he poked the top of my uterus!! Grrrrr
Anywho, with my mom coming into town next Tuesday through Sunday this should be a very interesting and busy waiting season. Nonetheless still anxious I’m sure. I bought FRERs to start testing once a day around day 10 I think. I may wait longer.
