Default Advice needed!

Hi ladies. I thought I'd stop in here to ask for some wisdom. I'm having an IUI on Friday morning, my second -- the first was about 2 years ago and I had a bad experience (the NP hadn't done many IUIs and jabbed my uterus with the catheter -- OUCH!!). So I'm a little nervous, and am just wondering if anyone has advice? What to expect, what helps you relax, any other info that might be useful? Many thanks, I appreciate it -- and of course, good luck to everyone here!!

Thinking about Keanu Reeves usually worked for me
 


I used to lie there in the dark for 20 minutes and visualize the sperm swimming upstream.

I must admit depending on who was doing the IUI we also had some pretty painful ones...by far though the majority where totally painless!!! I agree to try and relax is real important as is a good slow dr doing the insemination! We used to crack alot of jokes and were real familiar with our dr/nurses after TTC so long...

Just relax and picture Baby Alex playing with her sibling on a sunny summer day in a field of beautiful flowers...

I agree with Bethann ~ Just picture a sibling playing with Alex. I usually get really nervous during IUI time too but I just remember how bad I want my little miracle. I know it's hard but try not to think about past experiences, hopefully your new doc is gentle. Good Luck~
