I had my CD13 u/s and I'm a little bummed out. My numbers weren't nearly as good as they had been last time. My endo lining was only 3 and I had one follicle ~18. I've had 2 IUI's already and they've both been on CD15. This time I won't go until Monday which will be CD17. I've been trying to stay positive this cycle. The last two times we did the IUI's, I was under an enormous amount of stress and I felt like I had meltdowns each time. This time, I haven't been under any stress and things aren't as good.
So now I'm a little bit crazed. Today is CD 14 and I feel like I'm getting ready to ovulate. I'm using the OPKs everyday. If I get a positive tomorrow morning, I'll do the HCG shot right then and the IUI on Sunday. If I don't have a positive OPK tomorrow, I'll do the HCG tomorrow night and the IUI on Monday. I feel like I'm on pins and needles waiting for the magical surge. As crazy as this sounds, I'm really hoping it isn't positive tomorrow. I've take a 1/2 day on Monday and it would be way more relaxing.
On a different note, I got a phone call from my headhunter the other day asking if I was interested in a job. They had called me a couple of months back, but it never turned into anything. They found out that the company had someone in the final stages of interviewing. The job is for the same company, but the territory is even closer than the last time. They're trying to set up a phone interview, but I'm not sure if I want to do it or not. The timing, if it worked out, would be awful for more than one reason, but it seems as if that's how things work out for me these days.
We'll see. I haven't gotten a call back yet so I haven't been too worried yet.
Have a great weekend everyone. GL for all of you getting ready to POAS!! I can't wait to see some good news.
They did the IUI this morning and I'm officially in the 2WW. Everything went ok...I guess. Dh's sperm count was a little higher than last time so I was happy about that. I had some spotting afterwards, but they said that was normal. I had to go out and buy mini pads. I haven't had to do that in a while. Now I'm just going to obsess over little thing for the next couple of weeks.
My spotting turned out to be a little more, but again, the RE's office wasn't overly concerned. They did say it wasn't typical which didn't warm my heart, but its pretty much stopped today so that's good. Not too much else going on with the TTC front. My friend who had IVF last week is getting ready to test. I'm really hoping she has good news. This is their last attempt at IVF and she's pretty much decided that if it didn't work, they'd stop officially TTC. That makes me sad for them. I want my friend to be pg just as much as I want to be pg.
I just took a quick break because the drs office called. I had called earlier asking again whether the spotting was any indication of something else. They must think I'm crazy. I feel like I have their office on constant redial. Plus, in the middle of my conversation, I started to get all emotional. That's my first symptom during the 2WW. Tears and lots of them!
I'm off to head home shortly. Hopefully, I can keep my emotions in line tonight. DH and I are taking our ds to a college baseball game tonight with friends. It will be a perfect diversion.
Finally, some good pg news. My friend who just completed IVF found out today that she is pg!!! This is the same friend that was pg at the same time as me last time. Her dd is 3 weeks older than my ds. The crazy thing is her HcG numbers...they are through the roof. It's a really good possibility that there is more than one baby. I'm so happy for her. Now I just need to get good news.
Nothing new on my front. It's only been 3 days since the IUI so I didn't expect to really feel anything. The only thing I've got going on is a backache. It feels like I pulled a muscle. Hopefully, it won't put me out of commission this weekend. I really wanted to work in the yard and relax, not laying on my back in pain.
Hopefully, I'll get some symptoms soon so that I can obsess.
My friends progesterone was 150 and her hcg was in the 900's. Holy smokes! I thought it was nutty when my prog went up to 54 and that was without being pg.
I had what I thought were the beginnings on some symptoms. I've been a little crampy the last two days, but only in the afternoon. Plus, I had a strange heavy feeling in my pubic bone area yesterday. Hmmmm
Off to an employee picnic this afternoon. Then I've got dh's family over for brunch tomorrow. I'm hoping that's it for activity for the weekend. I know it doesn't sound like much, but I really wanted to have a mellow weekend.
What a bummer...tomorrow is Monday. I really don't feel like going back to work. The weekend went ok. I took Nate to visit with his friend Ella for a little bit and then Dh's family came over today. It was an early lunch and everyone left when he went down for a nap. I was pretty relieved. I needed some peace and quiet to myself.
I've been a little bit on edge the last couple of days. I'm not exactly sure why, but its almost as if my moodiness was just delayed a couple of weeks. I nearly took dh's head off today and then felt awful right after. I think I'm going to go to bed early tonight. Hopefully, tomorrow will be a better day.
The only good thing about this Monday is that I'm halfway through the 2WW. I'm officially 7 DPO today.
I didn't get to bed as early as I had planned last night. DH actually went to bed before me. Then, I woke up in the middle of the night with a nightmare. It was awful. Someone was hunting me down. Nice way to wake up...huh? I finally got myself calmed down and back to sleep and ds woke me up by coming into our room. I know it will get tough later on, but I like it now. I put him in bed between me and dh and luckily enough he went back to sleep.
Now I'm at work and completely unmotivated. It doesn't help that I don't have a ton to do at work and its slow. I think that's why the time has crawled by. I do only have a 4-day work week this week. I'm off on Friday so that I can go home for the weekend. I can't wait!!!!
Still unmotivated and only 8DPO. I definitely function better when I'm really busy. Plus, times goes a whole lot faster. Yesterday turned out to be a bit of a bummer. One of the ladies I share an office with had a small stroke. She's kind of like my surrogate mother. She has a daughter the same age as me and a son who's a little younger than me. Even funnier, her grandson's name is Nathan and my ds is Nathaniel. Her son in law's name is Cary and so is my dh.
Anyhow, I'm babbling a little today. I'm just worried because I haven't heard anything new yet about the woman I work with. Hopefully, we'll get some good news today.
Nothing else new on the TTC front. Just sitting here waiting on time to go past me. I'm wondering how early I can test!
Interesting new symptom. I keep on getting strange twinges, but not the kind I feel like I should be happy about. They really hurt, but they don't last long. It's only happened three times, but its made me start to worry a little bit.
