IUI #1 - Complete
Well, our first IUI is complete. We had the IUI yesterday morning. We went together, J provided his sample, and then we hung out for about an hour before my part. It was quick, but uncomfortable. My actual doctor performed the procedure, which I was really happy about. She said everything looked good - so we're just crossing our fingers that it worked! Yesterday, I was feeling really positive and optimistic about the whole thing, but today I've just been feeling kind of blue. I think it's because now we're in the dreaded TWW where there's no way we'll know anything at all for at least 2 weeks. My RE also didn't schedule a blood test. She just said to wait 2 weeks and take a HPT. I was kind of bummed by this. If she would have scheduled a blood test, I would have just held out until then. Now I'll be stressing about when to POAS. I'll probably want to do it a little sooner than 2 weeks, but then I'll be wondering if it's too soon to test because of the trigger. I'm really not sure how long that stays in your system. Oh well, I guess I'll just try to keep my mind off of it for at least the next 10 days. Of course if AF shows up before then I'm supposed to call the office to develop our plan for the next cycle. She also said we could probably call on Tuesday or Wednesday to find out the details about J's sample. I'm a little nervous about that too - it would stink to find out that the sample wasn't good after all this. Oh well, I'm sure I'll call because I would rather know than spend weeks wondering about it.
