It's not as simple as 'ready, aim, fire...'

This is going to sound really stupid... One of the things I'm worried about for the IUI is that neither of the two times M has had an SA done has he been able to get much in the stupid cup. Any tips? The first time he did it by himself, the second I went in to 'help' - it was really hard!

I'm a giggler. I actually couldn't stop giggling at our wedding - the part where the priest said "Do you take this man to be your lawfully wedded husband"... I couldn't stop laughing. The idea of *me*, with a husband! It took me a couple of minutes to control myself. I was having trouble controlling my giggles in 'the room' too. It was just so bizarre - the sterility of the setting combined with the porn, and then what you're supposed to do. *snort*.

Anyway, the other thing I've been wondering is that if you look at the instructions for the 'donation', they often say that you can use a non-lubricated condom instead. But Conveyor seemed to think that was a bad idea. Have you done that successfully?

No ideas. But I AM giggling just thinking about it . . .

My husband missed the cup the first time. "I got distracted," he said. Apparently you can ask them for a really wide mouthed collection vessel and that helps.
