IUI itself was uneventful. Doctor declared it a "good sample," 26 million or so, and was in and out in a flash.
I can definitely feel my ovaries, though most of the tenderness is on the left, which concerns me a bit considering both of the leading follicles were on the right. But I feel pretty good otherwise, besides the requisite ridiculous nipples that the hcG shot always seems to produce in me. We'll see what happens.
If this doesn't work, I think we may take a break after this one. The prospect of diving into another injectibles cycle fills me with dread, and I just feel worn down by the whole process. My husband is also in favor of taking a break for a few months. There are some other boring insurance complications factoring into all of this, which I won't take up your time with, other than to say we may be switching plans 12/1/09 instead of 1/1/10 which will save us a lot of money but will also end our IF coverage. Either way, I will probably stock up on a couple of Gonal-F pens before our insurance coverage for IF runs out. They only cost me $25 each (I know!!!), so if we do end up cycling again next year I can save a few thousand bucks that way, and if not I can give them away.
But hopefully this cycle will work. Please, please, please let it work.
