Can I just say how thankful I am for you ladies!!! You are truly the best! I was so happy to read your encouraging words tonight and am grateful for each one of you.

This was the first day of our two week wait before knowing the outcome of our iui! let's just say it's going to be a longggg two weeks.

I wanted to add to my post from yesterday. The iui was around noon and then I went home to rest. I just felt mostly cramping and pressure but nothing too bad. We headed to dinner around 6 and the cramps got much worse. I just felt really uncomfortable for a while at the table. Once we finished dinner, we left to head to a Christmas light show and all of a sudden all the cramping went away! Like super fast and I felt immediately better. I started thinking that that must have been ovulation. So, I do believe the follicles were released in time! It was only about 6 or 7 hours after the procedure and the washed sperm are good for 24 hours. I'm hoping that things were timed nicely! : )

I felt strange this morning. Still a lot of cramping and pressure, it's kinda hard to describe. But as the day has gone on, I think it's gotten somewhat better.

I still haven't decided what to do about the pregnancy test thing. The doctor said to wait 14 days, but I'm worried with 2 triggers I'll still get a false positive and get my hopes up. I don't want to be questioning whether or not the test is correct. After some research, I learned that some women test everyday starting around 5dpiui and continue until day 14. This way, they can see the line fade from the fertility drugs and then if a line reappears they will know for sure that they are pregnant. I'm also not too found of seeing a bunch of positive tests. I'm worried it will trick my brain and just cause more anxiety. Any suggestions?!?


  1. hmm well that is a tough decision isn't it. I guess you have either two choices: start 5 days in or wait until the 14 days are up. I think...although personally I am not sure I could wait...I would go with the 14 day waiting. I am not sure how I would feel seeing the line fade.

    Hopefully whichever you chose helps the week to go faster and keeps your anxiety to a minimum.

    My fingers are crossed for you guys! (and my toes too!)

  2. As much as I want you to test everyday, starting now, I think you should wait til day 14. But whatever you decide we'll all be here for you!! Ahhh I can't wait! So exciting!

  3. Thanks for the advice! I still havent decided!!!=
