Default Had IUI today, could use some encouragement

HAd IUI #7 today and though I'm tring to be +++, I'm just feeling a bit down.

Our sample was 5million, the cut off for our clinic and that was from thawing 2 vials. I don't understand it, we've had samples from the same donor with 20 million before and now this one only has 5. Ugh!

They also told us we only have 6 samples left. I thought we had 9. Apparently they've had to thaw more than one sample a few times to make up the numbers. I know that 6 may seem like alot, but if we're averaging 2 samples per try. That means if this one doesn't work, then we only have 3 chances left.

We had only planned to try til our sample ran out. I'm really starting to get discouraged. Has anyone had success with just the bare minnimum?

Honestly, it sounds really simplistic, but the truth of the matter is that it only takes ONE sperm. Hold a positive thought!

OMG saira. I so know what you're going through. I had IUI #7 just a day after you, on the 19th. We swiched donors 3 cycles back because the counts were poor. I've had just one HCG injection this time, but im on clomid and have had the ultrasounds. Maybe this will be our month and we can head over to the due in March boards!
Yes, the things we do for our dreams...Keep your chin up! We'll get there!
