I am a mom to amazing twin girls, a wife, and I work full time. I battled infertility for 2 years and over the course of treatments, a twin pregnancy, and raising twins I managed to gain about 80 lbs. I’ve lost about 50 lbs so far and would like to lose another 50 in my quest to become a hot mama.

IUI #3

So to follow-up my previous post, we had to have an IUI while we were on our Florida trip. I would like to share how fun (and my fun I mean suicide provoking) it is to find a doctor that is not your own to do an IUI on you on a Saturday. Anyways, after many many phone calls and curse words my mom actually found one that would do it for us.

I LOVED this doc. He took 30 minutes just siting with DH and I to explain exactly what PCOS is. Ever since I was diagnosed, no on has ever done that with me. I have learned all I know from the internet. I suppose it is kind of like sex in high school....

So DH's counts were REALLY up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I almost cried when he read us our numbers. Here are the stats from our past 2 IUIs
Stats IUI w/ Follistim in April IUI w/ Follistim on June 6
Post Wash Count 4 Million 10 Million
Motility 0% 70%

I am in absolute shock and awe over the numbers.

Anyways, the last E2 I had done was the Tuesday before and it was up to 952 and I had a 16, 15, and a 13. Based on those results they wanted me to coast on Wednesday and trigger Thursday night. The doc in Florida said I'd definitely have 2, if not 3 follies release. He even let my husband do the insemination...well I mean, he placed the catheter and let him put the sperm in. Crazy nice. The whole experience was just night and day from what it has been.

So I am no 3 DPO. I have decided this time around I am not going to obsess over it like I have in the past. I am going to keep on keeping on which includes drinking caffeine and alcohol and eating sushi. I'll tell you what, going in with that mind set has made all the difference in the world. So glad I decided to do that.

Anyways, the hubster is out of town till Thursday, so I have high hopes of getting my house clean and taking care of things I've been meaning to do for a while!
