    2nd IUI
    mrs62610 posted:
    I had my U/S this morning. one follicle at 18mm and another they said could make it was measuring at 16mm! IUI scheduled for tomorrow morning, we have to be there at 7am for the "collection". Gonna have to go to bed early tonight! The NP we met with said depending on how the count looks postwash, we may or may not do another IUI Friday morning. With the first IUI the sample was really thick which caused the count to go down alot after washing. I didn't realize this until today. Hopefully tomorrow will be better!

    Good luck tomorrow! I hope this is "the one"!!

    When we started going to our RE my DHs sperm was "thick" and he got on some vitamins and they havne't said anything about it since, so maybe if this one is thick again have him think about that!

    Let us know how it goes! You are about a week behind me!!

    Thanks ladies! I was surprised that it was thick last time because when he went for the initial SA (November of last year) it was thin. The NP told him to make sure he stays hydrated and that should help it some. We'll see, I'll let you girls kow!
