I decided to take a test this morning. I had been doing so good this cycle up until today. With the 2 previous IUI’s I tested every day past my IUI to see when the trigger left my system, and once it did that second line never returned. Well I was greeted by a BFN this morning. I realize at 11dpiui I’m not completely out just yet….but I’m literally losing hope by the second. It is such a roller coaster of emotions one goes through on this infertility ride…..feeling pretty low today. I guess at this point I’ll just go ahead and test again every day until Thursday, when I go in for another appointment with my RE. If I get a positive HPT by then I’ll have my beta drawn, if not we’ll discuss our protocol for IUI #4, which shouldn’t be any different than the past since R is against using injectable medications.
The constipation has been just awful this cycle. About 8 days before I started taking the progesterone suppositories I started eating 5 prunes daily in preparation…..maybe they helped more than I know, but sure enough about 3 days after I started the progesterone I was so uncomfortable once again. I use my heating pad at night sometimes because the pain is so bad. I’ve been chugging water, as much as I can stand….but it’s not been very helpful either. Other than the constipation I’m having literally no symptoms, so really I have NO clue what’s going on inside of my body right now.
