We had our third IUI this morning and I feel really good about it. The sperm count was 9 million post wash, 60% motility, 12% morphology (the best numbers we’ve had with IUI to date). The motility needs to be above 50% and the morphology needs to be above 10%, so we’re good! And now we wait….
I’ve decided to do the pineapple thing in addition to my BFP Goddess this cycle. LOL, I’ll take all the help I can get! If you don’t know what I’m talking about, eating a pineapple core after IUI/IVF/ovulation is said to help implantation. You have to buy a fresh pineapple, cut up the whole thing, cut up the core into 5 pieces, and eat one piece per day starting 1DPIUI. Hell, what could it hurt?!?
Speaking of the BFP Goddess. It arrived Tuesday and my husband thought I was completely off my rocker when I told him about it and showed it to him. Lol. Oh well, I love the idea.
For whatever reason I feel more at ease this cycle. Maybe I’m starting to be a little numb to the whole infertility journey, I’m not sure. R & I have been eating healthy & working out regularly since Sunday (yea I know big whoop….5 days)….but it’s really helped my mood. I just feel more “normal” again….which is an incredible thing. I’m not going to test out my trigger this cycle, but I can’t say for sure that I won’t test early. My goal is to hold out until at least 10DPIUI, but we’ll see. Also, I’m not going to avidly symptom spot……what I’ve learned is that EVERY month since starting TTC I’ve had “symptoms”, so it’s really just not even worth it to bother with them.
R & I were laying in bed last night watching TV and I said, “it’s crazy to think that this could all be over in just 2 weeks” (referring to the infertility journey). He said, “no, you mean 2 weeks + 9 months + 18 years, that’s when it’ll all be over!”. LOL ridiculous! I guess it’s good we can laugh about it. What else can you do?!
Hoping & praying that this is it for us and we’ll be having a little Thanksgiving baby in 9 months!
