IUI - Done!

Well I'm all done with the IUI. Like I mentioned in the previous post, I started getting some cramps on my left side. I met the Mr. for lunch and had some soup, afterwards I felt so full/crampy and uncomfortable. By the time I got to the doctor I was VERY uncomfortable... I tribute it to the fact that I had to pee sooooo bad! (they said come with a full bladder, and boy did I!!)

The procedure itself was pretty uneventful, like many of you said it would be. I asked the nurse how the Mr. did and she said, "well I'll tell you, but you can't tell him! If you do his head will be so big he won't be able to walk through the door!!" She said his count was 230 million! She said they had to dilute it some because they couldn't insert that much!

Afterwards when I got home, I have been experiencing pretty sharp cramps, mainly on my left side. Is this normal?? I googled and it looks like it is... I am just hoping that nothing is wrong.

Happy New Year!!


  1. 230 million?!?!?!??! WOW!!! Praying that one of them find their way to the egg!!!

    s for the cramping I had it after my IUI. Now if you feel really full and bloated and any hint of a fever call your RE ASAP. After one of my IUIs I ended up with an infection and it was not fun. Praying that 2010 brings you a BFP!

  2. Holy crap! That's a huge number!! Good luck!:)
