The "Party Scene" before we began.
The IUI process went very well. Between yesterday's 14ish mm lining (the best for me yet), a 21.7mm follie & trigger plus today's awesome numbers for DH (55.1 mil motile sperm post-wash w/ normal parameters for everything) and my body appearing ready (pinching, cramping, etc.), this one better work.
When Nurse Excellent came into the exam room with some other party materials (for the IUI), Dr. T said, "She didn't need any of that. Her cervix is ready and just asking for it!"
A few other quotes because you know you want them:
"Damn! That man (my DH) has a lot of sperm!" SuperDH had over 55mil post wash!
"Looking at those numbers (of sperm), this (our IF) just couldn't be his fault." I thanked him for that one. ;)
"So . . . you're naming this one Jeffrey, right?" Jeffrey is his first name. When I told Dr. T that I have a brother named Jeffrey, so it wouldn't be happening, he said, "That's actually wonderful. We researched my family back to the year 1740, and there was lots of the same names." Guess I'm a part of the family now.
"I reeeallly want to get you pg this time. Not just because I want you pg, but I always want to take money away from all of those infertility docs waiting for you and IVF." Me, too, Dr. T!
After I left the doctor's office, I joined my oldest sister for a yummy sushi lunch. When we said our goodbyes, she game me a big hug with a slight high-five from her fertile uterus for good measure. (Yep - picture THAT!) Both of my sisters have said they have a good feeling about this. It's definitely a time to believe what my sisters say, huh?
