cd 17...

The IUI is done. It was a painless procedure. Mr. D.'s count was 36 million... so as my bff said "that's 12 million per egg!" Mr. D. and I had fun joking around about triplets while I was upside down for 20 minutes after the procedure. About 1/2 through the upside down part I realized that I had to pee really bad (possible pressure on the bladder??) And even though my nurse assured me that I wasn't... I felt like I was peeing everything out 21 minutes after the IUI.

My doctors office is kind of strange about charging me for stuff... I can only assume the are trying to help me out... or they just forget to charge you fr stuff done on a weekend... anyway... I am very thankful for the break.

Here were my charges and not charges in case anyone is wondering about cost....
cd 2 u/s - not charged
clomid - $120
cd 11 u/s - $113
cd 15 u/s and hcg shot - not charged
cd 16 IUI and wash - $275
so out of pocket that is $508
with a savings of about $$326 for the "not charges".

I did have some pretty severe cramping and general soreness last night (about 2-5 hours after the IUI. I was surprised about this since the IUI didn't really hurt. I have also been sooooo tired (the hcg in my system??) So I took and Aleve at 8 pm and was asleep by about 9.

So that is it... I am officially in the world of assisted reproduction.
Thank you all for the support... especially Jenn and Chaz.
And double especially to my online bff Jess! ILY!

Thinking good thoughts, and I'm not saying it means anything, but...I had 3 IUIs (interestingly, I think I only saw evidence of the last one being billed to insurance, hmmm.) and only had discomfort or cramping after the third. None were painful at the time, but cramping after the third. Yup, it was the last, b/c it worked! 38 weeks today...
