IUI #3

Is all done 🙂

This time the LH levels were a bit harder to pick by the sound of it, which meant that they originally scheduled an appointment for us at 3pm yesterday, but then shifted it to 11am today.

We had a bit of a wait when we got there because they didn’t actually have the blood test results back from this morning yet, so had to wait an hour before we could go in – luckily they took us into a room with comfy chairs not just the waiting room and K nearly fell asleep waiting lol

The IUI itself went a lot better than last time, still a little painful and uncomfortable inserting the speculum (isn’t it always?) but there was no problem with the catheter this time and it was over before we knew it.

The nurse then told us that the LH levels weren’t as high as last month (29 this morning) and that the pattern of rising levels was different than it had been the last couple of times (rising slower than before) so they weren’t 100% sure if K is actually peaking or not.

They then said that they want her to have another test tomorrow morning, and unless the LH level is the same or lower (indicating that she has peaked) then they want to do another IUI tomorrow to be on the safe side.

We of course asked how much that would cost, as we were under the impression (assumption?) that we could only do one IUI each month for what we pay, and to our surprise they said we won’t have to pay any extra for it. I guess its partly because we have our own donor as well maybe? I dunno but they said there is plenty of sperm there to double up this month and that it looks like really good quality (BD was very proud of himself when I text to tell him lol)

So we are pretty stoked about that, of course it depends on tomorrows tests, but if we can have another IUI tomorrow surely our chances have to increase. And if not, well that means that the timing should have been right for today’s one.

Now our weekend plans have changed slightly, we were going up to Auckland to visit K’s family tomorrow but we’re going up later this afternoon now so that we will be home tomorrow just in case.

Fingers crossed!!
