    Rebecca I'm right there with you. I had my IUI on Tuesday. I'm just trying to keep busy so I don't get consumed with the 2 ww like I have in the past. Good luck to you, and keep me posted!!

    So glad to see some others out there going through this. How many cycles have you done before? Any successes before? I'm just full of questions as this is my first. I had severe cramping and spotting after the first and just mild cramping and spotting after the second. Here's to positives for everyone!!! Rebecca

    Hi Pup -
    I had two IUIs thursday & friday - a week ago. So I'm finally in the second part of the 2ww. This is definitely the hardest part. I also had severe cramping after IUI #1.

    Not feeling anything different going on in my body (except from being exhausted due to the progesterone) so I'm not that optimistic....

    Good luck and hope your 2ww goes quickly!!

    Question IUI -How many times

    I have noticed that some people on this board only had one IUI and others have had two. I just had my first one on Sunday and now we on in the 2 weeks waiting game. I was wondering why one person might do one and others might do two?

    My husband first sperm count was 22 mil and 8% motility, when we had our IUI he was 6 mil and 100%motility. Shouldn't we have had two IUI instead of one?

    We where shooked when we got those numbers, yet we know all you need is one to get in.

    I'm thinking it was just the doctor's opinion. My doctor preferred to do two. I've read that it only increases the chances of it working by a few numbers, maybe 6%. Don't quote me on that, just a thought, I've read so much, it all starts running together...

    I was wondering if I was the only one that did two HCG shots. I did one on Sunday, IUI on Monday, another HCG on Tuesday and another IUI on Wednesday. I haven't seen anyone mention that they did that. Most of the ones I've read seem to have done them 24 hours apart. I'm still waiting and trying really hard not to go to Wal-Mart for anything, I know I'd buy pregnancy tests and waste money!!! Rebecca

    Pupandbun,

    I did an HCG shot on Friday and had the IUI on Sunday at 10:00. I have the HPT sitting on the tv stand, well it's been sitting there for a few weeks. I don't feel tempeted to test and I really think that I can wait. I was just more concerned with the fact that the sperm was 6 mil and 100% motility after the wash.

    I haven't heard of anyone on the board going what you had to do. Wow, that's a diffrent approach.
