Mr. MBC and I headed to the RE's office bright and early yesterday. Mr. MBC had to provide his sample first so they could wash and prep it for the IUI. Let's just say, I was shocked....I had no idea that I could go into the room and "assist" with Mr. MBC collecting his sample. When the nurse asked if I was coming in, I could feel my face turn 5 different shades of red. Given, everyone at the RE's office is there to make babies, but I was still embarassed.
Almost 2 hours later, Mr. MBC and I were called back into the procedure room. The nurse began by doing an ultrasound to make sure the HCG trigger had done its job. She showed us the fluid that was leaking from the follicles. She said it looked like my two smaller ones caught up for a total of 3 follies!
The RE finally came in and said the post wash count was good (20 million!!) and the morph report would be available today. He said the count was so high that he wasn't too concerned with the morph.
The IUI itself was easy. It felt very similar to a pap smear with a small pinch. I had some cramping yesterday and still have some today. Before Dr. L left the room, he said "I'm hoping for some good news in about 10 days" with a big smile on his face. You and me both Dr. L, you and me both.
I know this 2 WW will be one of the longest of the past year. I'm very hopeful about this cycle, but I'm trying to be cautious and not get my hopes up too high. I'm already debating if I'm going to test out my trigger and test early. Decisions, decisions.
