Cycle#2 - home IUI with clomid - now 2ww

Its nice to have that first cycle of 2 home IUIs behind us. Studies I've read show LH surge in serum approximately 12 hours before urine detection of LH surge & ovulation 24 hrs after urine detected LH surge. As you can see below, my physiology follows quite closely.

Mid-cycle Timeline
LH surge, urine- CD 14 12pm (noon)
IUI #1 - CD 14 at 11pm ( 11 hours after urine LH surge)
Right sided ovulatory pain CD 15 10:30am - 12:30pm
IUI #2 - CD 15 3:45pm (28 hours after urine LH surge)

Now for another 2ww. Lets hope I can keep myself busy and not think about it too much. Yeah right.

Just as a logistical note, we could only get the catheter about 5 - 5.5 cm into the cervix. We are unsure if this distance was enough to ensure that we were at the top of the uterine cavity. We know the insemination cannot be any less effective than the intravaginal insemination we did last month regardless. We are trying not to stress about it. Hey, this isn't our day jobs after all, ya know. We're amateurs.
