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!
