This post is long overdue since IUI #5, part 2 was on Friday.
This appointment was beyond uneventful...especially compared to part 1 appointment.
The hubs and I went to this appointment together. Got there ten minutes early for his part of the appointment. Traffic was still a &itch (like it always is out here) but we left with plenty of time. After the hubs did his thing, we went out for breakfast. We got back really early for my appointment but the RE was late. The hubs asked if this was his payback for us being so late the day before. LOL! Didn't matter to me.
The IUI, although more uncomfortable than the day prior, went well. The hubs sample was 91% motile and 38 million. We verified that four follies on the right had already ov'd. The RE thought that at least one more follie on the left would ov.
I had some pretty intense cramps and horrible back aches for the rest of the day. Probably didn't help that we were in the car for three hours headed down to the pregnant BFF's place (its only 1.5 hours away...gotta love the LA traffic.) I'm pretty sure I felt the follie on the left ov that night.
We went down to BFF's for an overnight stay to go with her to an u/s to see what kind of baby she's having. (Remember her? She's the accidentally pg one that has a 7 month old that is sicky.) She's having an alien boy! We're counting on him not looking like an alien forever but he'll probably still be a boy! She handled it pretty well. Other than wanting a little girl, since she already has a boy, the chances of a little boy having whatever medical issues her first little one has are greater than if he was a little girl. I'm still praying that this little one will be completely healthy and able to help heal her first. Anything is possible with God!!!
I handled the u/s pretty well. There's always a chance that the emotions can sneak up on me but they didn't. I even held her when she shed a few tears. She would do the same for me...she has. We went to lunch and even picked the new baby's name. It was way too easy this time around. I made a suggestion, they both loved it and it was done. His middle name will be after my hubs (and it helps that its also a family name for them.)
And...our other friends in Texas had a baby last week. They called us last night to ask us to be his legal guardians should something horrible happen to them. They said that they know we would be wonderful parents and raise him in the same way they would. I seriously had to choke back the tears (choking them back now as I type this.) It was the sweetest thing someone could say to us right now. Of course, I hope to enjoy their little one WITH them!
That was pretty much the IUI and most of the weekend. I'm still pretty uncomfortable. Guessing that's the gargantuan ovaries I'm packing in my abdomen. The RE told me to take it easy since they're cystic. I'm doing just that...being completely lazy!
