Default Never thought about this before...

I had a different nurse today... She had looked WAY back through my chart and it turns out she did my first IUI way back when we were ttc JOshua. Anyway, she was SUPER-nice. Today, DH's count was 6million washed, and I told her that last time it was 10 and we had dtd the night before, and this time we didn't and it was only 6. She was an older lady who said she had been doing this for 25 years... very knowledgeable.

She made a good point. She said that 6 million is plenty and that she would rather have 6 mil than 60 mil. She said that naturally, you do not have that many sperm flooding the uterus when you have intercourse. Of course some drips out, and lots of it doesn't make it up there where the washed sample is placed. She said 3 mil was fine-- which was exactly in line with what my doc said 3-5 mil (post wash), so I felt a lot better about the 6million we got.
Anyway, it's funny how you learn something different with each nurse you have.
