IUI#2

We are headed back home after IUI#2. The numbers? Well, they sucked. Only 4 million post-wash. I didn't even bother asking about motility. I don't want to know. But I'm trying to focus on the positives: My RE said only about 100,000 sperm make it into the uterus during old-fashioned sex. So 4 million is a lot more than 100,000.

Oh, and today marks exactly 1.5 years since we've been married and TTC. That has to be a good sign. Right?!

I think there are a lot of positives going for yall. Now go BD!!!! Haha. :)

Elizabeth said...

Sorry the numbers weren't quite what you would have liked, but I think you still have a fantastic shot! Don't count yourself out before you've left the gate!

Erin said...

Sometimes I wish they wouldn't share the numbers...it's just one more thing to worry about!

Focus on the positives! :)

Nicole said...

Oh Katie, GOOD LUCK!! The 4 mil to 100k is such a positive! Enjoy your BDing and your TG :) I've got my fingers and toes all crossed for you...

Katie said...

I'm with you, Erin--I'd rather not know. But I'm okay, really. I'm not disappointed or depressed. Joey and I keep talking like this one is "it" and we'll keep that up until we get the beta results proving otherwise.

Positivity. I'm not very good at it, but my goal is to try extra hard this cycle. :)

Katie said...

I think IUI #2 (aka "turkey basting") has EXCELLENT chances of working!!! :-)

Focus on the positives - your lining was perfect and 4 million is a lot better than 100K!!

Good luck!

good luck with this IUI Katie...!

Yes, those numbers are not great but they can still work. Hopefully your rockstar follie can be an extra big target!
You might want to really consider getting Joey some Fertilaid or something like that. Hopefully this will be it and you won't have to worry about it.

I just found your blog and we have many similarities. I have also been trying for 1 1/2 with no success and am gearing up for an IUI. I hope this one does the trick for you and you get an early Christmas gift.

Sending LOTS of positive thoughts your way!!! Happy 1.5 year anniversary! :) And the 4 mil vs 100,000 is great! All it takes is one little sperm out of those 4 million!

Keep hanging on to those positives! Sending prayers and good thoughts your way for a very successful cycle!

Yay, Katie!! 4 million is WAAAAAYYYY better than 100,000. Now get to BDing to throw a couple more 100k that way. :)

JC said...

I'm hoping for you! I agree you had a lot of positive things this cycle, it could be the one! Hope so! =)
