Do I do the IUI tomorrow morning or Sunday morning?

Personally I would do it tomorrow morning. I had a surge and then had back-to-back IUI's. I had one the day before I ovulated and one the day of and am now almost 18 weeks PG. I don't know why I have always had the feeling that it was the IUI done the day before I ovulated that helped, but honestly I will never know. It's just better from everything I've read, to have the sperm already up there to meet the egg once it's released from the ovary, and that the day before gives it time to get there. Good luck!

Thanks Tracy! I am only concerned about having it done tomorrow because my husband has all kinds of issues with his sperm and one of them is that they don't live very long. So, I was wondering if I waited until Sunday, would I just miss it, or possibly catch the egg right on time? Another thing is that the surge was heavy this morning which might mean I started surging last night...Which would make tomorrow morning 36 hours after the surge which might be best? I'm leaning towards tomorrow, too. I hope I am as lucky as you!

What does the doc say? By the way, does the doc wash the sperm? The sperm supposedly live longer if they are washed.

My nurse says tomorrow....It's like pulling teeth to talk to a doctor there. I got to a fertility clinic (changing to Emory next cycle) and I see a different doc everytime I'm there. Yes, they wash the sperm. I'm guessing if I was surging by last night (yesterday morning there was a super faint line there) and today there was a strong line, that tomorrow morning might actually be 36 hours from the time I had a full on surge. Ohhhh here we go again...Wish me luck!
