I never really know if you count the day of the IUI as day 1 or not. If so, I am 5 DPIUI, If not, I am 4 DPIUI…. TTC lingo is so difficult at times. I don’t have much of an update, but I didn’t want to leave you guys hanging either.

The 4th of July was a pretty tame event this year. E worked on the 4th so I just stayed home with the dog and did a whole lot of glorious nothing. It was FABULOUS! On the 5th we went to my father-in-laws for a pool party. I debated whether or not I would get in the pool. I decided not to. I did this because I honestly didn’t feel comfortable in a swim suit with my ridiculous bloating. I honestly look like I am at least 3 months pregnant right now… Does anyone else get the ridiculous bloat? I am also very proud of myself for not crying or going off on someone when they asked if we were pregnant. I was probably asked at least 20 times. I finally had to pour my water in a solo cup so people would leave me alone. GEEZE! We just kept saying, “we’re working on it”. 

Symptoms have been pretty minimal this cycle. I have had a slight pressure in my lower abdomen, sex has been a little painful, trouble falling asleep, and I got car sickness a few times (little weird). Other than that I have been pretty normal. I started my Progesterone on Saturday evening so I am sure that will be catching up to me soon.

Before my first IUI I had an awesome fortune cookie and yesterday I got another one…. “a pleasant surprise is soon in store for you”… I sure do hope so!

  1. 1DPIUI is the day after your IUI…lol, it’s all so confusing sometimes! Glad you had a wonderful holiday. I love your fortune cookie, how exciting! Hoping your wait goes well. Thinking of you.

  2. People are annoying! haha…. But glad you worked through it. Yes I had terrible bloating too! But, I actually liked the Progesterone. I felt like it brought me back to normal mentally, physically, and emotionally 🙂 Good luck lady!

  3. OMG I am so bloated, too! What is UP with that. I wasn’t this bloated on the 50 mg of Clomid, but the 100 mg did a number. Sometimes if someone is being particularly obnoxious about when we’re going to “give our daughter a sibling” I say, “Actually we’re doing fertility treatments right now.” Shuts them right up! It’s weird because most people who ask that know we had trouble getting pregnant with our first baby, too, so I’m not sure why they’re not more sensitive now. The questions are hard and I’m glad you got through it! I think when it comes down to it, most people are just self absorbed. One of the good things about infertility is that I think it makes you more sensitive to other people. It’s a crappy thing to go through, but I think it makes us better people in the end!

  4. I had injections with my last IUI, and I was ridiculously bloated! I read about some kind of hyper-stimulation with the ovaries, and I def. had that. It was painful to sit, stand, walk…pray this IUI is it for you!!! (Ours didn’t work..we are on to IVF!)
