Did you think I had forgotten how to blog? :) Not having a working computer kind of makes blogging (and commenting on blogs) more difficult.
We had our 4th IUI this past Saturday! Yay! We were able to trigger on Thursday night, we drove to Mobile Friday afternoon, and were at the RE’s office bright and early Saturday morning! Man am I glad to be finished with daily injections (hopefully for forever)!
Barry’s little guys were very active and he had the highest count EVER out of the 10 or so semen analyses he’s had! Before the wash the total count was 372.6 million!! The highest before this was 168 million! Awesome! Look at all the little guys!!
The doctor was very happy with everything he saw and the procedure itself was quick and painless as always. We took pictures AND video taped this time, both the little spermies and the ultrasound screen during the actual procedure. I will post the spermies but I am not going to post the ultrasound pics. Dr. Inge was trying to be helpful but went into a ton of detail in the video and I just don’t want to subject anyone to that. :) Here is the part you’ve all been waiting for… :)
I’m not so sure what YouTube’s rules are on posting sperm on their site…so watch while you can in case it gets pulled. :) The videography is not great, but it was through a microscope, so what can you expect?
We made a whole fun weekend out of the IUI trip though. We stayed at a nice little hotel in downtown Mobile on the 22nd floor overlooking the bay. There was a big storm on Saturday night and it was so fun sitting in front of the ceiling to floor windows just watching the lightning. We are easily entertained. We got to eat lots of great food in Mobile too…and got to take a nap after the IUI…ahhh! We stayed there 2 nights and then went to Sandestin to spend some time with some friends. We grilled out, laid out at the beach, ate more good seafood, walked around Baytowne Wharf (a really cute little village with shops, restaurants, etc.). My camera battery died so the few pictures I have are courtesy of my iPhone…and then I just forgot to take more. Boo, Lisa, boo.
It turned out to be such a fun and relaxing weekend!!
