Good news: DH's sperm were moving fast after the wash!!
Bad news: There weren't that many. She likes to see at least 50 on a slide, but she only saw 20 (but they were moving fast!). She also saw white blood cells, which I've never seen on any of DH's SA reports. Huh.
I was also disappointed that she didn't have the equipment to do an actual SA and tell me the pre-wash and post-wash numbers. So I have no idea what "20 on a slide" correlates to...was that 10 mil post wash? 500,000 post wash? No idea. Maybe it's just as well I don't know that information so I can't google it to death...although in the future it seems kind of important to know, don't you think?
The NP had me lay down for 15 minutes after the IUI. I sent DH a text and told him that I loved him and was praying that we were making a baby right now. I also told him his sperm were moving fast after the wash -- that should make his day!
As I texted him and prayed I laid there with silent, relieved, and somewhat happy tears sliding down my cheeks and landing with loud plops on the paper sheet. I am happy and thankful the sperm were moving. I am happy and thankful we were able to do an IUI. I am praying this is our miracle.
