Thanks for the new thread, Jenn! Can I please be moved to Waiting to Know?

One crazy insem down, one to go... We've had three neices and nephews (8, 10, & 12) staying for the weekend. It's been quite the experience! Happily we did decide to insem anyway, even with 3 little warning labels sleeping (who am I kidding, they're not asleep yet!) downstairs right now.

tiger, I tested and it was only day 9, so I think you should test immediately!

Thank you JennM1021 for keeping the April thread!! You rock!!

Not much new here. We are pretty darn sure this cycle is a bust. But onward to next cycle!! Next month we may use a known donor and that is exciting (and scary)!!

I have a question for Xytex users... When they list the stats for the swim team... the pre-freeze and post-freeze motility numbers are percentages, right? For example... our last sample was 90 mil sperm/ml with pre-freeze motility of "70" and a post freeze motility of "30". My concern about this is, that if it is indeed a percentage, then 30% of 90 mil is only 27 mil/ml or 13.5mil per 0.5ml sample and that falls below their guarnatee of 15 mil motile sperm per sample. I just want to be sure I have that right so I don't look like an idiot if I complain to them.

Smartycat...I'd like to know the answer to that too! We did our first IUI yesterday...and other than the RE having to use a tenaculum to make my cervix cooperate...it was pretty quick. The cramping was terrible though! I thought for sure I'd be fine since my HSG test was no problem...but not so much. Ouch!! Anyway...when he was going over our sample numbers...he said post thaw was 40mil for both samples together. I thought that was crazy because the vials we got were over 40 mil each! He said those numbers were post-wash... but pre-freeze/thaw. He assured me those numbers were very very good. Hmmm....

Tiger...you must pee on something. I think that's the consensus. Wow...we are such enablers around here!! But..I love it!!! Feel free to feed into my obsession...in...oh...say about 8-9 days or so.

Good morning. Just stopping by to check in. I'm at 10DPIUI we're planning to wait until this weekend to test if AF doesn't come. My progesterone test looked really good so I had a great ovulation. I'm not feeling all that pregnant so my hopes aren't too high at this point. Hope everyone is doing well, : to those in the 2WW.

Good luck to everyone ovulating and inseminating and testing this month. I probably won't be around the thread much, but I'll be lurking and checking in on everyone.

Well, exciting stuff going on over here. Our friends, A and E, are using the same donor as us. They had their first IUI and.......they are pregnant! I am so, so excited for them. Genuinely thrilled.

I have e-mailed twice with a woman on the DSR. They have a daughter born in August with our donor. On a whim, I sent her a link to my myspace page two days ago. This morning, I had a new friends request. Yup, it was them. OMG! Their daughter is beautiful and has the donor's EXACT eyes. Again, she is gorgeous!

It's my turn now, right? It's gotta be. The ultrasound is scheduled for a week from today and the IUI is next Friday (the 11th)! I started Femara two days ago, so here's hoping for one (or two!!!) big, beautiful follicles!

: thinking of you... :
I'm going to test tomorrow (friday) and am really excited. My imaginary symptoms are out of control and my osteo totally enabled my fantasy land yesterday when she said she instantly felt as though I was preggo. :
