Here come the boys!

All the swimmers are in. Two vials and $1000 worth of sperm! We had two separate insems yesterday - one at 10:30 am and one at 10:30 pm - and C. says I don't take her out on exciting dates! It seems like the timing was good. With the juicy 22mm egg spotted, the HCG trigger shot was given and at 24 hourse and 36 hours we did the insems. That's about perfect according to the research I've done. Insems are not fun - I think they're painful eventhough all the books say they shouldn't be, if the cervix is open like it should be. Whatever...shh...I don't even like tampons. So I was not as lighthearted as maybe a typical conception is. After the morning insem I was very "spampy" - a term I learned on the message boards - sperm cramps. It is like putting a foreign object up there - I've been an outright lesbian for 10+ years. Makes sense to me. But, I feel fine today.

Other ttc'ers - I'm a little worried about my bbt temperatures. I know ovulation was triggered by the hcg and that my own ovulation is overided, but I wanted to see that temperature rise, and I didn't. It was the lowest it ever has been. Does that mean I might actually ovulate today and I missed it? I'm going to try and make my ticker on the site a link to my chart at ff so you can check it out. Experiences please....

regarding your temp dip: isn't ovulation the day of the dip??? when you see the rise, that means you already ovulated. so i think your timing is really good. did you get any ovulation pains? this was my first cycle being monitored and triggered, and my follicle was 20mm at trigger. i TOTALLY felt that bitch being released during dinner!

good luck to you two!!!

Yeah, Marta, you're right - that's what I'm scared of. I dipped TODAY but insemmed yesterday. Those little suckers only last like 6 hours. So am I ovulating today? I felt the cramps yesterday, but that could have been 'spamps'. I also heard that the hcg can affect bbt, so....ahhhh....It's all an effing guessing game. I'm only 1 dpo (maybe)..can you imagine me on 10 dpo? I'm a wreck - an effing wreck.
