dIUI #4 complete

We had the IUI this morning. The sperm count, as usual, was excellent. 38 million, 59% motility, moving in the right direction. The timing should be good, so am I allowed to hope this time? I know I hope every time, but I feel like it is with a good bunch of skepticism. We shall see.

In the meantime, we will pick out a new donor for next cycle, should we need it. My mother also got the name of an adoption agency from a friend of the family. If this cycle doesn't work, I think we may just get some paperwork done so that, if we decide on adoption, we can have paperwork done ahead of time. This friend had a domestic adoption. I really, really want an infant, so it would have to be domestic adoption for us, if that's what we want. I also need to start doing embryo adoption research. Does anybody know anything about it? I thought our RE's office had a program, but they don't. I'm just worried that an embryo adoption place will just be full of fundie freakiness. I don't want to have anything to do with that. And yet, I would be happy to adopt someone's leftover frozen embryos. Why not? Oy.

Has anyone seen the maxi pad commercial with the pad on a mechanical bull? T saw me watching that commercial and just started laughing at the look on my face. What the hell is that about? So, so stupid. Clearly written by men.

Wishing you lots of success with the cycle Rachel! Keep hoping.

Yes, I saw that ridiculousness of a commercial. Some jobs must not require a brain.

I hope this cycle beings success for your Rachel. It's a difficult line to walk between having hope and protecting yourself from disappointment. I understand. Try to be hopeful but don't beat yourself up if you're not.

The counts and timing for your IUI sound great. I do hope this is the cycle.

I haven't seen that particular commercial but have you seen what they are putting on the Always tabs? Have a Happy Period. Sheesh!
