IUI #2

Today we had our second IUI.  I had my follicle check this past Saturday and had 5 mature follicles--2 on one side and 3 on the other.  Follistim definitely seems to be the medicine that works best for me as I only produced one mature follicle last cycle with Bravelle.  I triggered late Saturday night and the IUI was today at 1pm.  Everything went very well.  My belly is rather sore today and I'm sure it is because my ovaries are popping out all of those eggs  :)

I'm going to TRY to resist taking urine pregnancy tests this time around.  My beta (blood pregnancy test) is scheduled for October 17th, so I'm going to just chill out and relax for the next two weeks (yea right)! 

I need to give a shout out to my wonderful husband.  He has been my rock through all of this.  The poor guy knows much more about cervical mucous and uterine lining than he probably ever wanted to.  I love him so very much.
