IUI # 1 done. Here is the story:
I drove to the clinic with Jeff as my passenger, he was holding our precious cargo: his boys. When we got there I was in such a state that I couldn't figure out why my car wouldn't lock after I got out.... the problem became clear when I noticed that it was still running. Note to self: always turn the car off before you try to lock it and leave it. Oh boy.
We dropped off his boys and went to get some breakfast while they washed them up with soap and water. Okay so I don't know what they "wash" it with but I assume it's their medical version of soap and water. The count came back to be 24 million. Jeff was very proud of himself to say the least. When we did the u/s, we found that both follicles had already collapsed, but the nurse said they seemed to have been very very recently and that we had perfect timing. Maybe I ovulated during breakfast, I felt an intense pain then but didn't think anything of it. I dunno. From what I found in google I wouldn't have even seen the collapsed follicle if it was more than a couple of hours, so we are good. Phew!
The actual insemination took about a minute. I wonder if that will "up" our chances? You know, cause the time length sounds about right when you compare it to the "traditional way." heehee. Either way, its done. And I don't have to go back tomorrow since I already ovulated. So that's it. I've been bastered. Go Turkey, go!!! (yes, I'm cheering myself on)
Oh and miss InfertileNaomi, do you remember a certain dare for me to take a pic with my baby tube? Well here it is:
