It’s like deja vu all over again. Goodbye, IUI #5; Hello, IUI #6. Originally, my beta was scheduled for Friday. Now that appointment has been changed to a Day 3 Monitoring (BW/US) appointment.

Shocking, I tell you, simply shocking. Do you think it was my husband’s high fever on IUI day? Or my high fever for 7 days after IUI day? Or the terrible fall I took in my laundry room? Yeah, I don’t think it was any of those things either. I think it was the fact that IUIs have abysmally low per cycle success rates, which is why I’m ready to be off this IUI train. One more and then I move to IVF.

I can’t say I’m particularly thrilled about moving to IVF, except that the per cycle odds are somewhat higher than with IUI and at least it will feel like I’m doing something instead of marking time in my calendar until the next cycle.

Still, I’m quite tired of this whole game.
