AAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH.....this is the slowest two weeks ever and I'm only on the 6th day.

I am seriously having mood swings like you wouldn't believe and I know it's just because I'm waiting and waiting and waiting and trying so dang hard to be patient. Then I keep contemplating the fact that I am either going to have good or bad news for my christmas present.

I've been beyond irritated the last few days and really for no particular reason. I feel like I want to get up and do something, but I can't find anything I want to do, so I just sit back down at the computer and read some more. I really want this ttw to be over so I can move on with either the good or bad news.

It's been so nice the last few months because I had pretty much given up on meds working on their own, so I wasn't worried about the ttw as much. But since we took the next step to IUI, I'm back to crazy worrying again.

Is anyone else feeling the craziness of a ttw right now???

I am. And I was just like you when I had my IUI. I was nutso excited, antsy, etc. Unfortunately, I found out that it didn't work (the same day I found out I didn't get selected for a job I really wanted) and I didn't take the news well at all. I had too much time to sit and be hopeful, and I didn't have a plan for how I would positively deal with things if they got yucky.

I really hope that you get better news than I did! There is power in positive thinking, but try try try to keep yourself busy and your mind off of worrying until it's time to test. Luckily it's a busy time of year, so that might help you to pass the time! Good luck!

I'm 9DPO and still no sign of AF. She usually shows up around 10 or 11 DPO, so I'm waiting to see what happens. It's so hard to be patient! Hang in there

You just described me this month. I'm on day 13 of the TWW finally! This was also my first IUI.

I'm glad I'm not the only one!!!

Augie....when do you plan on testing.....I know I'm going to get antsy and test early even though I swore myself not to. Heck I wanted to test today just to make the urge to pee on something pass. LOL

I am really miserable today....feel so bloated (but that might be from the half a bag of cheese popcorn I ate last night) and every little twinge is making me crazy thinking something might be going on in there.

Best of luck to you Augie....I got my fingers crossed for you!!

Hi ladies...
had my b2b IUI on the 12th and 13th. I am feeling a few symptoms...unfortunately i did gonal f and ovidrel so it is probably "fake" symptoms from the meds. Wish they would go away...i go back to RE on the 28th for blood test. I could probably test the 26th or 27th if AF stays away until then.

Wishing everyone gets a wonderful gift....a BFP!!!

Today was a BFN. Hopefully AF stays away as I have a history of late BFP's.

Oh Kim ... I am right there with you !!

IUI was on the 12th ...

No blood test until the 27th ...

Was hoping to have GOOD NEWS before Christmas ...

Feeling some different things, nothing major. I had NO SIGNS when I was pregnant with my daughter. I also had NO morning sickness, food issues, nothing ... it was smooth sailing.

Have had mild naseau the last few days and some smells are bugging me. I am trying hard not to read into this. I'm tired but heck ... I have an almost 14 month old to chase around the house ! Hahaha

SO ... right there with ya on the UGH of the TWW !!
