4dpIUI

Well it is the fourth day past my last IUI.  All is well so far.

Last night the progesterone medicine made its presence known to my body in several ways.  1) the mess.  2) the nausea.  3) the breast tenderness.

Two cycles ago when I did an IUI with progesterone support I didn't get the second or third symptom, only the first and the migraines.  So far so good.

As a friend has said and all my doctors have told me, "there is no reason why you can't and won't get pregnant soon.  It is just a matter of time."  So J and I are being cautiously hopeful.

I am going to try to restrain from testing until Jan 1st as that will be 14 days past the IUI.  I was going to wait until 15 days past IUI but seriously who can wait that long.  J should be home on the 1st and I'd like to share the news, whatever  it will be, with him there.  Besides if it is positive I could leave a voice mail message with the clinic to do a blood test for the 2nd.

The hard part is going to be the waiting.  Tomorrow begins the implantation window which usually occurs days 5-9.

Wish us luck!
  These are so cute!

  2. I'm impressed that you are waiting that long. I don't want to delay AF since I am on progesterone as well so I am testing at 12dpIUI. Crossing my fingers that this will be it for us both! :)

    1. I didn't think of that. Maybe I will test early so I can on the road to a new cycle if that is the outcome.

    Also I love piggy banks. My lil chunky has one that is a frog. I think they have to be cute so that way saving is less painful
