Back up to eight!


So this little lady is definitive on the mend. She is up from 7.3 to 8.0 lbs.

In non-cat news. You know how when you say you want to do or not do something you sometimes change your mind pretty shortly after? Well it turns out others have said Ginger Jesus’ sperm aren’t super great swimmers. We like him anyway and own a couple vials, so we’re thinking of doing IUI. Obviously since our vials are unwashed we need to get it done by a pro who can wash them. So tomorrow I get to call around and see if we can find a place who can take us in. I will likely ovulate on the 22nd. I don’t know how feasible this all is. Any thoughts from anyone who had been there or researched it? You guys are all the best. 🙂 I feel so fortunate to be part of this wonderful community.

    Hooray for healing cats!

    I can only imagine how surreal it is to call around for sperm washing. Lol As if buying sperm isn’t weird enough!

    Most REs and even some OBs can wash sperm for iui. Good luck!

  4. Are you close to the Cryobank? If so ask them. When it comes to poor sperm count/motility washing an ICI vial that’s been frozen tends to leave you with no so hot numbers so you may want to wash and use both.

    I’m not sure how it works in the States, but any cryobank or fertility clinic should have the ability to wash the sperm (maybe even the one that stores your samples). If you are planning an IUI at a clinic, you might as well have them thaw and wash the sample for you so it’s times close to your IUI.

    The fertility center that is the monopoly in DC/MD/VA requires fertility testing prior to any services, so I hope you can find an RE out your way who can get you in without all that nonsense. Good luck. I’m partial to the DIY method at home, but I can understand why you’d want to try an IUI.
