Not today, dear I have an IUI... some day.

There's no definite "right" amount of abstinence before IUI, but we aim for two-and-a-half, three days or so.

B, optimist that he is, greeted our postponement last week by reveling in the fact that it cleared him for a little action for a couple more days.

Me, I'm just worried I'll ovulate before I make it to my next scan. And I made the mistake of telling him this.

So this morning, when he woke up feeling a little frisky, and I reminded him that we're within our three-day no-getting-freaky window, he looked a bit dejected, but followed it up quickly with "... but what if you ovulate today? I'm just looking out for you here".

I feel so lucky to have a husband willing to make such great sacrifices.

My RE says 48 hours to "recoup". Good luck either way as you close in on that witching hour.

Isn't that nice of him? J's the same way. We're so fortunate to have such noble husbands...

Men are so giving. {{snort}} We should stop & realize how wonderful they are & always make sure to have a hot meal on the table when they come home from work {{snort}}. And be wearing nothing but a lacy apron, too. pft! men.

Nude, I made a kick-ass dinner last night (overcompensating for involuntary abstinence, anyone?) and I joked about that very outfit.
