IUI #1 is done

Well, our first IUI is done! Yay!

I went in yesterday morning for the first one. They did an ultrasound and I had two follies on my left that were 31mm and 24mm, and one on my right at 18mm. I had not ovulated yet. The RE confirmed that we would be doing another IUI on Friday to be sure we covered the bases. The procedure was quick and easy. Mr. B gave a great sample, 20 million post wash {they want to see at least 10 million} I laid down for 10 minutes and then off to work I went. This morning was an exact repeat, except the ultrasound showed that I had ovulated and Mr. B's sample was even better at 23 million post wash.

I go back next Friday the 22nd for a blood draw to check my progesterone levels, then again on July 29th for a pregnancy blood draw. I hope these next two weeks fly by!!!
