Setback

October 10, 2008

IUI #2 done, and seeds planted inside of me. Doc was nice and professional and said that the timing was perfect (as last time too). I seemed to ovulate again from the right ovary. There was a problem though. Apparantely DH missed a few drops of his swimmers and now the total sperm count was only 0.9 million after the wash up treatment when last time it was 7 million. 0.9 million sounds like a big number but in the fascinating world of IUI it isn’t. It’s a small pathetic number and with our luck all those swimmers will just go round in circles and bump to each other and never find Mrs Egg. Oh well, a setback in our  ttc history, what else is new?

I asked about the progesterone prescription and the doctor said I don’t need it as my natural level at CD20 was 30. For some reason I get the impression that the docs at my clinic are quite reluctant to put me on any hormones since everything seems to be working fine. I’m not sure how to feel about this. Maybe it’s a good thing not to have any extra drugs just in case, but maybe they would make me feel more confident about everything working as it’s supposed to.

Now the 12 day wait, but I’m not getting my hopes too high with these numbers.

Something brighter though; it’s Friday and I skipped worked today! After the visit to the car dealer we’ll have our traditional Friday night feast of gluttony, wine and movies and tomorrow we’ll travel to Turku and I’ll wine, dine and have fun with my dear sister :). And next Thursday I’ll go with my workmates to see these guys play live:
