So today I’m 5DPIUI & 7 days past trigger so I thought I’d do a little mid-2WW post, although I don’t have much to report. It literally feels like the time is crawling….I’m thinking it will speed up a bit soon though because I’m on vacation Thursday-Sunday, so that should help keep my mind off of things (as much as possible)!
**TMI ALERT** I’ve been having the worst constipation since I started my progesterone suppositories. THE WORST! Let me tell you about my new best friend who I met just a few days ago, good ol’ prune juice! Don’t let me fool you, it is DISGUSTING, but it does the trick. I’ve started drinking 1 glass in the morning and taking stool softeners around the clock, and I even have a bottle of prune juice at work now in case of emergencies, lol. Sad, but true. Other than the constipation (not that that’s not a TERRIBLE side effect) I haven’t had any other progesterone/pregnancy symptoms. They say implantation occurs between 6-12 days after ovulation and you won’t experience any symptoms at the VERY LEAST until a day or so after implantation, but then again some women don’t experience any symptoms until later on in their pregnancy. It’s really a crap-shoot whether or not I’ll get any symptoms so early on! In the next few days I’m hoping my little fertilized egg implants and hangs on tight, because I don’t want it going anywhere for the next 9-10 months!
Please continue to send thoughts & prayers our way!! One week from tomorrow I’m taking a Beta blood test to see if I’m pregnant or not, although my RE is only in the office the afternoon that day so with a 2:00 pm appointment I may not hear back until the following day. I’m also trying to prepare myself that it could be bad news and we may have to do the IUI process a few more times before seeing a BFP. Only time will tell!
