3rd IUI

Nov09: 3rd IUI on 11/16
Letrozole day 3-7, 2 ultrasounds, ovidrel shot on 11/14

This is our third IUI scheduled. After our October break, we got back on the infertility bandwagon and we've been working this cycle again. I've had a really good reaction, 3 large follicles all measuring around 18-20mm.

I don't know what I really have to say on this. I feel a little numb. I feel a little defeated already. But we're not telling anyone that we're doing this third round. I really didn't like the hoopla that my mother made with the last one, everyone knowing. This time we kept it private, just me and B. The one thing I was scared out of my MIND to do was give myself the ovidrel shot since someone had done it for me the past 2 times. I cleaned the bedroom until it was glittering with cleanness, showered, put on a new pair of pajamas, and sat on my bench with the needle and instructions. I had even waited until I had no time to chicken out and call someone. I think I started to cold sweat as I was preparing to do this, and then 1, 2, 3! It was in. and I felt like the biggest p*ssy ever. I did it in my stomach, and ladies, I can tell you (coming from needle wimp here) I couldn't even feel it go in. If I can do it, YOU can do it. Don't read the horror stories, I'm convinced those are from some weirdo freaks who probably stabbed themselves sideways.

so now we wait.
