IUI, Part Deux

April 10th, 2012.  CD15.

Well, IUI number two is in the books.

It went well, as far as I know.  I had quite a bit more cramping this time, but my cervix likes to hide its opening off to the side, so I’m sure that had something to do with it.

My chart looks great so far, and I am expecting a temp rise tomorrow.

The husband’s count was 86 million post-wash, with 98% motility.  Not too shabby!

I also started testing out the trigger this morning.  It was the first positive pregnancy test I’ve ever seen.  It was sad and exciting all at the same time.  I have to do this, though, so I don’t put myself through what I did last time.  NO more false positives, and NO more premature freak-outs.

On a positive note, I feel great.  Very optimistic and relaxed.  I can only hope that some of that translates into some good fertility juju.

Happy Two Week Wait, all!
