My doctor called with my hCG results. The level only went up to 197 mIU/ml, which means that they either just haven't gone up very far or they're on their way down. Either way, this pregnancy is over and we're on to our next cycle. :-(
So, I had a second hCG level today and it only came back at 164 mIU/ml. It hasn't quite doubled in 2 days, but my doctor says I shouldn't worry yet. We're going to leave it for a few days and I'll go back on Monday to see what my levels have done... I'm SOOOOO nervous!
Today I had my first IUI. It was more painful than I thought it would be! I'm all crampy! Anyway, here were DH's sperm numbers.
Volume: 4.4ml (normal = more than 2ml) Concentration: 110 million (normal = more than 20 million; best = more than 90 million) Motility: 36% (normal = more than 50%; best = more than 60%) Morphology: 56% abnormal (normal = less than 70% abnormal) Forward Progression: 3 (It's a scale from 1 to 4 with 4 being the best and 2.5 being average) Total Motile Sperm: 174.3 million
