End of this level

When we first found out DH had no sperm, I figured there was only one possible use for the frozen sample, which was IVF with ICSI. It wasn’t until we visited the RE that we realized we could use some of the sperm, which was subdivided into seven vials, for a few rounds of IUI first. I hadn’t had high hopes for conceiving via IUI, since the odds are so low per cycle and unlike couple who can keep trying indefinitely, we have a finite amount of material to work with. So IUI has felt like a detour, but I’ve gotten comfortable with the routine.

Anyway, my beta for IUI#3 is on Friday. On Friday we will know whether or not we proceed to IVF. Holy shit.
