More Thoughts and TMI

Ok, earmuffs children, earmuffs. This might be a little TMI (too much information) for some of you out there, and hubs might kill me, but I'm willing to take that chance.
So today in reading some of my fellow bloggies blog's I noticed a trend that I have not been following. I have realized that some RE's consider an IUI to have 2 insemination's. So basically after your HCG shot you have an appointment for your first insemination, followed by a second insemination on the same time the following day. Other doctors feel like they are "covering all bases" by doing that just to make sure the timing is right. WELL WHAT THE HECK, WHY ISN'T MY DR. BETTER BE A MIRACLE WORKER COVERING ALL MY BASES? All of a sudden I felt like second base was wide open ready to be stolen by AF. "Quick Mr. Shortstop get your egg, I mean ass on that base and cover it!"
So, in a freaking out panic (because of course now that I know this information obviously my IUI wasn't good enough and did not work) I desperately call my husband to make sure he was coming home for lunch. Yes I did, and I'm sure you can predict what my intentions were....To make him the most tasty lunch he'd ever had, rub his back and blow in his ear, and get him in the sack before he headed back to work.
Crisis averted. However I can't say I completely feel better about the situation because there's still the fact that my RE might not be covering all bases.
I know they say every other day is the best, but I'm beginning to get into panic mode. Next month we're doing it every day and twice on Tuesdays. WAIT! There won't be a next month, right?!?!?

We did one insemenation per IUI for the first 4 and then two for each of the other 4. We were told to wait a day and then come in the next as we didn't want to reduce the quality of the sperm. (example: if we did one on Monday morning we'd come back for another on Wednesday) We were told that the "day of rest" helps the quality. I'm not a doctor, so take that as 2 cents. =) Good luck!

You have such a funny way of wording things. And it makes me laugh. And I haven't laughed all day so thank you. :) I don't know much about IUI's so I'm not much of a help, but maybe you could just ask your doctor why he doesn't do two IUI's? It would be worth a try. Two can't be worse than just one!

I think every situation is differnt...We are doing IUI do to NO cervical fluid and there are two follies...we did one today and one tomorrow..I was actually surprised by the suggestion of two IUI I always thought it was just one..I wouldn't stress to much.

Have you talked to your doctor about it? Maybe a change can be made next time.

Wait, none of that matters anyway since this month is it. ;)

Infertility is such a hard journey, it has it's up and it's downs...it's a path that God only trust with certain people...

I'm praying for you through this journey. My husband and I have also been TTC (4 years next month), infertility is a huge part of our lives, it does not define us, but it's def. changed us for the better!

Please know your in my thoughts and prayers and I am an email away if you need to talk.
