I love that my counting mechanism has changed.  And I love that I am drug free for the moment (except for what’s already in my system).

Yesterday’s IUI went well.  My cervix and associated mucus were deemed “beautiful.”  Only a touch of minor cramping in the evening.  It went really, really well.  I’m feeling hopeful, still.

Mr. JB had some spectacular counts–one BILLION sperm; 40% swimming fast, 48% more swimming period; 15% perfect in shape and 46% almost perfect.  He is feeling so proud.  Again, we didn’t need to do the second IUI in favor of playing the home version of the game.  On a side note–last time his count was half this and he was taking a multivitamin daily.  Not sure if there is a corrolation, but it’s worth noting. 

Since my hcg shot, I’ve been really tired.  Slept on the way down and back from the appointment yesterday and then napped after I got home and then slept at my regular time.  I think the combo of stress, drugs and weather are all doing a number on me.  My boobs hurt, too.  I told Mr. JB he should expect to hear that for the next while.  He replied with “like 10 months or so?”  Cute boy.

I was hoping as I was writing about yesterday that some profound thought would come to me.  No such luck. Time to zombie through the day.

Please keep those powerful good thoughts coming.  I can use all the help I can get!

  6. YAH YAH Excellent Spermies! Go Mr JB! Swim spermies Swim – do your job!!

    Now the question is: did you POAS to see the hcg in your system (like I did just to confirm that there is a possibility to see 2 lines or not – like a mythical creature – maybe a jackalope or a unicorn or maybe a faery????)

  7. I am thinking good things about this cycle for you.

    I am holding on tight for you and Mr.JB that you really are knocked up this time.

  9. So glad your IUI went well!! Congrats on the billion sperm- one of those is bound to hit target! Sending you positive thoughts your way!

  10. glad you iui went well. i’m at 6dpiui and still tired. i didn’t think it could be the hcg shot, i thought it might be the sudden shock of not being pumped full of hormones.
