First IUI and anxious!

This is my first time posting on this site. My DH and I have been TTC for two years. My periods have always been like clockwork but my DH has a low morphology rate of 2. We decided that we should try and get some help and my fertility doctor suggested IUI.
I was put on a low dose of Clomid 50 mg days 3-7 and then Estrace 2 mg tablets 2X/day days 8-12. I had my surge on Friday and I went in and the US showed that I had two large follicles; one on each ovary. I then got my trigger shot and they told my hubby and I to come in the next day for our IUI. (Sorry, I really don't know all the lingo!). On Saturday I got my US and I had not ovulated yet. I was disappointed because I was hoping that I could get some piece of mind and know that I was on track to have everything go as it should. I got the IUI and then went back on Sunday for another IUI. They did not give me another US on Sunday so I don't know if I ovulated. I was told the trigger shot would definitely make me ovulate within 24 hours...I hope so!
So now I am playing the waiting game. It is extremely difficult because my DH would prefer that I do not tell anyone what is going on. I think he feels it is his fault that we are not pregnant and he feels terrible. That makes me sad for him...I told him I love him and we are fortunate to have so many nieces and nephews to love. Deep down I want a baby so badly but I don't want my husband to feel bad. Ahhhh! Is anyone else in the same boat?
