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!
