Inseminated!!!

That's what I've been! This month we did our IUI based on my LH surge due to our vacation. I got a positive late Monday, at 11:30pm, and we did our IUI right around 11:15am this morning. MBL had to be at the clinic early to give his, um, "deposit". He's such a trooper! He could collect at home, but he's convinced that collecting at the clinic helps his count. As a person who holds a bachelor's in psychology, I know better than to argue with that! Today we had our best count ever, 8.6million motile spermies! We had a new nurse for our IUI and she was FANTASTIC! So friendly and cheery. Usually I get the RN that is all business. She is fast and furious and barely says three words the entire time (which is awkward when you're laying there with your feet in stirrups and your lady bits in full view). Needless to say, I don't particularly like that RN, even if she does always wear the cutest earrings. Anyways, back to our RN today, she was so gentle and thorough and just sweet. The IUI was painless and I even remembered to wear my fertility socks! MBL was quite funny afterwards and he kept making me laugh and then yelling at me for "pushing it out".

So, now on to the two week wait (assuming that I my temp goes up tomorrow)! Here's hoping we get our positive from this!
