Done!

The IUI went well. Our RE said Greg's sperm looked great and was even better than it was the cycle we got pregnant. It hurt like a SOB again, despite taking two extra strength Tylenol, but the pain only lasted for 30 seconds this time, so it was much more tolerable. I did have some cramping and spotting afterward, but it wasn't a big deal.

The one awkward part was when Greg had to collect his sample. Usually we do the IUI first thing in the morning, no one is in the waiting room, and, when Greg goes into one of the exam rooms, there is a stack of magazines there for him. Well, today we went in the afternoon and the waiting room was standing room only. He got called back, (hmmm....I wonder why he got called back all by himself), then, the nurse brought him to the exam room and said, "Do you need some magazines???" He was like, "OMG, can't you just put them in there and not ask!" I am so glad all I had to deal with was 30 seconds of pain! I would have DIED if I had been him.

So, now we wait. Hopefully two eggs + great sperm + getting past the CM = one (or two) healthy babies.
