IUI #1 is over with! It wasn’t really all that bad…the whole process took a little longer than we had anticipated, but most things do. :)
We headed over to the Urologist bright and early and had to wait quite some time for the wash. But finally the “specimen” was handed to us and we were on our way to the OBGYN. I was very very protective of those little spermies. I wore a puffy vest to insulate and keep them warm in my bra. My motherly instinct was well intact. :)
I am being a copycat and copying Courtney in her taking pictures at the IUI appointment while holding up the number of fingers for the number of tries. We pray that this is the one and only picture that we will take, but we will see what the Lord has planned. Note I am still guarding those little spermies in my vest. :)
The IUI itself was uncomfortable but not painful and it was over fairly quickly. After laying there for 20 minutes we were on our way. I did take it very easy yesterday though and laid around a lot. I know the doctors say that is not necessary, but it can’t hurt! Plus it was nice having Barry bring me food and such…he he he…
So now we pray and root on the little guys…Swim little guys swim!!!
