CD20 - 6DPO/IUI

No HPT pic today! The line was GONE! And I took a pic, but it was on my cell phone and of course crappy!

So im really excited that im all ready to test for real now! And now its sinking in how scared I am for this not to work! Even if I end up pregnant, I could miscarry if some of the old sperm from the few days before the IUI got up in there instead of the washed healthy sperm from the IUI... I wonder what the chances of that are...

Im just gonna try and stay positive and think that I will end up pregnant, and I WILL have a baby in December! I had a dream last night that I was in a Dr's office room and there was an ultrasound machine. The IUI had worked and I had gotten pregnant and was 5w6d and they were going to check and see if anything showed up on the ultrasound. Well, there was something.....and then there was SEVEN other ones! I was freaking out because there were 8 in there! And then they looked all weird like caterpillar's or something with a ton of legs walking around inside of me. It was really bizarre

Today no symptoms, still too early. But I still have the dreadfully painful boobies!!

My boobs hurt the worst after the trigger, then they slowly went away! It's amazing!

And at your dream, OMG! I hope that the u/s part comes true where you get to see your BABY at 5w6d, but not the caterpillar part! Too funny!

CD21 - 7DPO/IUI

No HPT pic again today...I had a little outburst this morning. I thought why am I wasting all these HPT's I have when I could need them next month. Then I got all mad thinking this isnt going to work and we'll be back at it again next month. Just the thought of that makes me sick to my stomach. Im DONE with Dr's, office visits, getting the stupid ultrasound wand stuck up my Hoo-haa (although i'll gladly do it if it was to see a baby), im sick of calling and making appointments, bloodwork.......etc. I dont want to do it again!! So I just went pee and flushed it, it was kind of like a "Ha! So there!" moment. I showed the peesticks who was boss!!!

The line is gone anyway so I literally would just be wasting them. I promise i'll start using "higher class" HPT's tomorrow though!

So not really anything as far as symptoms...and I know its early. Yesterday I got home from work and HAD to have a glass of chocolate milk while cooking my favorite meal (chicken fettucine alfredo) then I HAD to have more Lets just say I had three full glasses of chocolate milk (and they were BIG glasses probably bigger than 8oz) I cant even remember the last time I had MILK period. Then i felt so sick I ate like three bites of my favorite food!

I had some crampy feelings too yesterday but not really anything substantial at all. The times I remember cramping around 7,8,9DPO they lasted pretty much all day and were constant and this wasnt, so im sure it was nothing. Its weird i've never found myself being so down about a cycle...and this one out of all of them when I actually have a real, true shot at it! (Getting pregnant and not miscarrying)

I can see how it can be hard to stay positive after all you've been through but you have a fantastic chance this month!! I can't wait for you to get your BFP so we can all celebrate!!!

oh, and love your octomom dream haha. Chocolate milk is a GOOD sign...it means your body is craving calcium which is not "technically" a preggo sign but it should be

I hate milk too and my body craved the crap out of it right before I got my BFP, especially choco milk. I'm not trying to get your hopes up, but I want you to stay positive! Try not to worry so much and enjoy this time. IF your don't get a BFP, then we can all have a good cry with you.

when are you gonna test?

I am LOVING your chart ! And I love your dream too ! No octuplet caterpillars for you! (that would be really weird)

I highly doubt the "old" sperm would have made it as opposed to the healthy ones that were injected directly! good luck and I can't wait to start stalking your tests
