Welp it’s been one week since our IUI. Could these days go by any slower?? I am actually surprising myself with how patient and laid back I have been. Do I want to test… yes. Will I.. Heck no! I’ve had some weird off and on symptoms
1dp0- mild cramping on left side
2dp0- More sleepy @ work than usual ( could be b/c I didn’t get much sleep before I went in)
5dp0- cramps almost all day… felt like AF cramps, and I had the poops! (TMI) 🙂
6dp0- mild cramps again, not like the day before and then felt normal the rest of the day, until dinner time when I had a normal size meal and felt so bloated and full after.
I guess from everywhere I read there are a lot of ppl that have implantation bleeding, but If I had those bad cramps on day 5 and would think that would be implantation, but two days later and no bleeding or spotting.
Have any of you NOT had any spotting and end up with a BFP?
We are going to keep trucking along!
I have found from last time and now this time that Google is my enemy! I need to stay away from it but I can’t!
So I got to thinking about my ONE follicle I had that measured 27mm and started googling about that. It got me upset b/c everything I read said that 27mm was too big and would never produce a viable pregnancy, that it was too ripe. I literally looked at sooo many pages and they all said about the same thing.
I’m going to keep my promise to myself and not test until my two week time which will save my mind from going crazy some, but the Internet is right at my fingertips!
I also told myself with every negative thing I was thinking I would try to make a positive… so here is the positive
Call it fate or a weird coincidence but the night of my IUI on my way to work was a Full beautiful moon, in my view the whole drive to work. Ang is in the float pool @ her hospital and so she texted me the unit number she was on…she must of miss typed some of the numbers b/c when I called the number it was the lactation line to the hospital! THEN.. Ang had a sweet Arabic lady and without Ang saying anything to her the lady asked her if she was trying to have a baby, and Ang said Yes. The lady said I will pray for you and every time Ang went into her room she would tell her she is still praying for a baby!
We both thought those things were all a little weird! Who knows. Today is day three of the 14 day wait!
The deed has been done. This morning @ 0930 a.m. I was shot up with spermies!
This was my first IUI experience since last time it was IVF. I have to say, things were different than I thought they would be.
I guess I thought my MD would be doing it, and that was surprise one because it was the nurse practitioner. I love her… she is very sweet and very knowledgeable, but she is NOT gentle at all. You would think the female would be more sensitive, careful and caring but my MD is way more all those things! When she put the speculum in, she didn’t use any kind of lube… OUCH! It prob wouldn’t have been a problem if I hadn’t taken the Clomid, but the clomid dries me up a bit. Then when she put in the catheter and blew up the ballon on the end she did it so fast my abdomen hurt so bad! The rest of the time went by ok. Her and Ang mostly talked the whole time and I layed there and tried to relax as much as possible and not think about things.
On a good note…. Our swimmers motility were 37.5 million! Holy crap! I guess that is very much above the average so I’m happy about.
The NP was also very surprised that my ovaries didn’t respond well to the Clomid. She suspected since I’m in my mid 20s , in good health, no fertility problems, that I would have produced atleast 3-6 follices. Hmm. So if this time doesn’t work she said next round they would probably move on to clomid plus injectables.
So now starts the ever so long 2 week wait. Here we go
Well trying atleast.
So today @ the MD I had a follice scan and it showed ONE…only ONE follice that measured 27mm with really good uterus lining.
I thought for sure since I took the Clomid that I would have more than one.
But like everyone says… It only takes one! So I’m feeling good and positive on that note.
I triggered tonight with HCG and go in Thursday morning for the IUI.
I have accupuncture in the A.m. and hope that will take my mind off things!
We need good thoughts our way… I’m already dreading the TWW
Last night we went and saw Paramore at a smaller venue dowtown! Guess who opened for them… Tegan and Sara!!
Let me tell you… the lesbians came out of the woodwork last night in Phoenix. Ang and I were thinking we haven’t seen this many gay ppl in this town ever! It was nice to know we aren’t the only ones who exist!
Tegan and Sara were awesome. They were quirky cute and rocked out. I have never seen them before but Ang saw them like 10 years ago in Canada at some small bar. Would like to see them again when we could hear them play all night!
Paramore surprised me as well! Very good performance… !
Note: no more crying or weird side effects from the Clomid any more. Hoping they made some big follies for us!
Ok I totally take back that my only side effect from the Clomid as been hot flashes! And also I didn’t have to take 4 days… 5days. So today is day 5. Thank God
I cannot stop crying. I’m so sick of it.. I get goin and cry so hard my head starts to pound! Yesterday watching Oprah… tears
Movie I have seen 10 times and never cried about… tears
To top it off last night at work I had a patient go down hill quick and this morning he made the desicion that he was done.. I don’t usually get emotional at work but I couldn’t help myself and cried infront of the patient, his daughter, another nurse and a doctor.
I can’t think of what else would make me so emotional but the Clomid! I’m a freakin baby
So today was day 3 of 4 on the clomid. I have to say it hasn’t made me bitchy or emotional! Horrah!
I have been having hot flashes… bad! I can only think it is due from the Clomid b/c that’s the only new thing I have been taking. These past two nights I wake up so hot and then get so cold. It has being happening on and off all day today too.. blah!
Labor day was my hunnys big 37th Birthday! We went for Sushi at her favorite place, then Cheesecake factory for dessert and vino and ended up a local bar called moon bar! It was a very good evening! Love ya baby!!
