Today was the day for my second attempt to get pregnant! I had to wait an extra couple of days (today is CD16). The OPK has been smiling since Monday evening (still smiling) and my progesterone today was 2.08 (yesterday it was 0.45). My doctor likes any progesterone over 1.5.
Upon thawing out my Swimmers for their mission, they were only at 8mm (last month they were at 22mm). How can the same donor differ so much? My clinic put an inquiry into the cryobank (which will take about 10 days for response). Since today was the day, I didn't hesitate when asked if I wanted to open and add a second vial to the mix (that makes $1260 in Swimmers used today), leaving me with one vial left (originally ordered four). Here's hoping that last vial is never needed!
This combined set of Swimmers had good numbers. The total was 23mm, 90% motility. Great numbers, but I expected that from a single vial!
My doctor and nurse are on vacation this week so another doctor performed the IUI. He was very good, explained things as he went (I like doctors who tell me what's going on and what it means... I'm the kind of person who needs to understand the details).
My official test date is July 12. My expected AF date is July 11.... here's hoping AF doesn't come for a long, long, long (x40 weeks) time!
Positive thoughts & Baby Dust!!!
