IUI #2

Melissa's biggest fear today is that the nasty tenaculum would be needed during the insemination. Well unfortunately the doctor had to use the tenaculum today. It was so sad because when the doctor mentioned "the word" tears started to flow from Melissa's eyes. I told her to be brave and that it would be okay. It seemed to take less time today than yesterday. Melissa also said it didn't hurt as bad this time as the previous time. Maybe it was the advice given to us for her to not empty her bladder or maybe it was because she knew what to expect this time.

I am so proud of her. This week she has been so strong. I have never seen Melissa go through so much physical pain before. I wish that I could have taken some of the pain away. I am glad that I was there both times.

Thanks to everyone for giving us advice on dealing with the tenaculum. We also would like to thank everyone for supporting us and cheering us on during our first TWW.

P.S. ACL is AWESOME!! We are having a blast.

My doctor has also used that 'evil clamp' on me and it is a pain that I will never forget so I know what you are going through. Congratulations on surviving that and, hopefully, you won't ever have to deal with that again.

I am with Oneofhismoms, maybe next time you can say 'no, I don't want you to use that on me.' I know it's hard to think of doing that when you are in the stirrups but if you ever have to deal with that again (and I hope that neither one of us ever does), you might want to ask the doctor if it is absolutely necessary.

I'm sorry.

Again, SO sorry you had to deal with that but now all you have to do is sit back, relax, think positive and join me in this TWW.

We can do it!

Loads of baby dust to ya!

Wish it didn't have to come at the price of so much pain--but--SO SO excited that you made it to your first insem! I hope it is your ONLY!!!

Hopefully that will be your last IUI and the future pains you'll be hoping to take away are those of morning sickness and sciatica! As a non-bio mom I can tell you that you have a whole lot of pain you wish you could take away lying ahead of you. I think some of it we actually do take away a little. I'm raising a glass of virtual alcohol in a toast that this will be your one and only TWW!

That tenaculum thing sounds horrible. I'm glad I didn't have to do that. Congratulations on making it through your IUI's though, and sending positive vibes your way.

I saw online where a propane tank exploded and some people were injured. You gals are ok I hope.

Also read some porta-potties caught fire.....GROSS!

I had different levels of "discomfort" as well - I think it had to do with how close I was to ovulation at times... closer = softer cervix??? Not sure.

good luck and baby dust for this TWW!

Hi! My partner and I are also trying to get pregnant via IUI, and were given this tip. If you have an orgasm immediately before the insem (say, in the car), you will not need the tenaculum. We have only done two insems, but the one where we did not heed the advice resulted in a kinked cervix. We will not make that mistake again! Logistically, it's a little tough, but it worked for us!
