The oh-so-dreaded two week wait.
Our IUI was this morning and everything went great! The procedure is painless and over in two minutes. I rested for 15 minutes afterward and then we left to go home.
It’s been a very scary past week as my husband’s family got into a car wreck this past weekend. So trying to stay calm and stress-free has been difficult. But thankfully everyone is OK and home again.
We still went ahead with the cycle as planned and we both feel so good about it this go around.
I had two good sized follicles on my right side and two more, smaller, ones on my left. They likely grew a little more between my ultrasound on Monday morning and trigger shot on Tuesday night. I’m just happy I have more than one egg in the game here.
Taylor’s numbers for the IUI were good too! Motility was good and the count was so much better than his very first analysis and our first IUI three years ago. We both feel so good about everything and we’re putting it into the world that we’re going to get pregnant this cycle.
My test day is August 29th and I was told not to test any earlier as the trigger shot and progesterone can make a false positive (tomorrow night I’ll start progesterone suppositories twice a day). So I told myself I won’t even buy a test until the day before test day. I’ve waited this long, I can wait another two weeks, right?!(giving myself a pep talk here).
The doctor recommended for us to have sex this evening as well. That’s also what our other doctor said after the first IUI. Taylor isn’t objecting. 😂
The flow of things with this clinic, having an extra few eggs, Tay’s numbers looking good, as well as having the progesterone make me more confident that our chances are higher this time. I always pray for God’s will and if we don’t end up pregnant this cycle then we’ll pick ourselves back up and try again.
Nonetheless, I’m still also praying so hard for us to be pregnant.
My plan is to stay relaxed, but busy, to help keep myself occupied during the next two weeks. I still have plenty ty of organizing to do around the house and projects I need to get done.
I’ll be sure to write about my symptoms if I have any come up.
Prayers for us are appreciated!
