That’s right, it looks like tomorrow is IUI day.
I arrived home from work to find a voicemail message from Nurse Brittany. No, really. This is the first non-pseudonym I’ve used in this blog. It’s just too good not to share. “Hi, this is Nurse Brittany calling on behalf of Dr. Text!”
According to Nurse Brittany, speaking on behalf of Dr. Text, my LH levels are rising. Because this is my first cycle, they don’t know how high it goes. Because of this, they’re not exactly sure when it will peak and when I’ll ovulate. But it will either be tomorrow or “very, very soon”. I’m supposed to go to Clinic One bright and early in the morning. They’ll do my ultrasound and bloodwork, immediately processing the results. Then they’ll either tell me to come back tomorrow or stick around.
Internet friends, some of you have done IUIs– help me out:
-What is the procedure like?
-Do you rest at the clinic afterwards?
-Did you do anything differently in the day(s) following?
