IUI today

We had the IUI this morning.  As soon as we got there, Brandon went on back and gave his sample.  After what seemed like forever, they were ready for us.  We had to sign a paper saying we wanted the IUI to happen and I went and got undressed for the procedure.  After I was "spread eagle" on the table, Dr. Bates came in.  As he was about to insert the speculum, he told us that Brandon's fresh sample had very few good sperm at all.  They unfroze 2 vials of his banked sperm (from 10 years ago) and only got 4 million to inseminate with.  He did not sound uplifting at all.  He actually told us that if this doesn't work, we need to consider IVF next.

I'm trying to stay positive and imagine just one sperm making it there.  I cried on the table and have felt just sad all day.  He definitely could have presented the information in a different way or something.

I'll post more when I'm not so down about the whole procedure.
