Hurry Up and Wait

DIUI - Part II went as smoothly as Part I. I was in a different exam room this time (kitted out with a lovely new mobile, much thanks to Chez Perky), but otherwise, everything else was the same.

I did find out the counts for both samples. Our clinic prefers that frozen samples have a post-wash count of at least 3 M. Here's our counts:

Round I - 23 M
Round II - 17 M

The doctors and nurses in both rounds (since we had weekend procedures, we didn't get our regular nurse and RE) were impressed with the counts and hopeful that this cycle would be the only one we needed. Round I had 40% motility. I didn't see the motility number for Round II, but am hoping that it was similar.

Now that we've gone through all the stress and rushing around to get everything ready for this weekend, now we just have to wait. Beta scheduled for June 8th.

Given the fact that my symptoms for ovulation and PMS are the same as early pregnancy symptoms, I'm going to try not to do any self-diagnosing. I'd also like to not drive myself crazy with the tests. We'll see how that goes.

Waiting and abiding with you, Jendeis. The first dIUI cycle was a trip for me - so different from everything that came before it. Hang in there and know that I and so many others are holding you in the light and hoping for you with all our hearts.

I am so late on getting my comments to you. I can follow my RSS on my blackberry, but I can't comment..ARGH. I have been following though, and keeping my fingers crossed. I hope the bracelet worked magic. Which one did you wear btw? I really do hope you like them, and hope they bring you good luck.

{{{HUGS}}} I can't wait to hear the news...I am going to be in Hawaii when you get your beta (leave june5) I don't know if they have internet connection /business center....if they do I will try and check in every few days to comment. I can read the blog on my phone, but not comment.
