Thanks to those of you who shared supportive comments towards doing the IUI. I wanted to do one, but you know what happens when we make plans...
Yeah, we ended up trying naturally because my OPK turned positive over the weekend. Plus, one of S's necessary test results had not come in yet. I saw the OPK surge yesterday afternoon. We tried day before yesterday and this morning, so I think we covered our bases. This morning's temperature showed a halfway rise, so perhaps ovulation had just happened.
It's strange... sorry for TMI here, but the lovely "egg-white cervical mucous," of which everyone speaks so highly, seemed present day before yesterday, even though the ideal time according to OPK/ovulation timing was yesterday or today. Well, I guess everything doesn't always line up like clockwork. Hopefully the HSG "clearing out the tubes" boost will still help us. :)
Another possible hitch in the plans for next month: My doctor wants to do a Hysteroscopy (to confirm no adhesions/pre-polyps on my uterine lining which might interfere with implantation), but to do that, we would need to skip trying next month. I was clueless, but apparently a Hysteroscopy requires you take birth control pills to thin your lining, and then has to be done a week or so into your cycle. If the doc feels it's worthwhile, I think we will go forward, but I wish we didn't have to take a whole cycle off!
Anyone have experience they are willing to share about Hysteroscopies or know if there's a positive boost associated with them, like with the HSG?
