We're Moving on Up to IUI...

Just like George and Wezzy Jefferson, DH and I are Moving on Up!

So yesterday I had my CD3 bloodwork and ultrasound with Dr. B and everything is a go! Dr. B asked if DH and I wanted to do an IUI instead of TI this cycle as he said it ups the chances slightly over TI. Even though I got PG in August with TI I feel like we need a more relaxing change. So Mr. Blessed Bud and I said why not, it's worth a shot. In addition, IUI takes the pressure off of Mr. Blessed Bud to perform on command 3-4 days in a row. Dr. B explained the IUI procedure to me and I feel very comfortable with what is going to happen during the procedure:

1. Collection of Mr. Blessed Bud's Sperm
2. Sperm Count, Evaluation & Washing/Preparation of Mr. Blessed Bud's swimmers
3. Mr. Blessed Bud's sperm is placed directly into my uterus using a small catheter

Nurse K gave me a calender for this cycle and this is my protocol:

Femara cycle days 3-7
Follistim 150iu every other night

My first Follie Check is Friday December 11 so I will have an update then...

Until Next Time,
