Ok… I know this is a couple days past the real halfway point, but I think it’s close enough. Here’s a little poem that I think suits me well right now.
I’m not up, I’m not down. I’m somewhere in the middle. I don’t have any gut feelings this cycle… I’m still keeping my hopes up though!
I decided to test out my trigger shot this round… I’m taking a pregnancy test every day. I went to the dollar tree and bought 9 pregnancy tests for $1.00 each. I’ll get a few of the more expensive First Response tests for the last few days. It took until this morning, 9 days post IUI, for the test to go back to negative. A lot of people get early positive results on 10 days post IUI, so I’m hoping to see something good within the next few days!
I’m glad I decided to test out the trigger though. Like I’ve said before, I feel better when I’m DOING SOMETHING! It doesn’t really matter to me if it makes a difference for the end result… just as long as it’s keeping me busy regarding baby making.
Symptom spotting… I’ve only had a few of the same progesterone symptoms as last time. The crazy sense of smell, the pressure in my uterus area… This time I can add zits. Lots and lots of zits. It’s miserable. I can also add the fact that something has completely shut down the receptors in my brain that say, “Hey! You’re full now. You can stop eating.” I can seriously pile a mountain of food on my plate, finish it off, and still go for more. I’m already overweight, I just hope I don’t end up as big as a house!
Next weekend I know I’ll end up busy. I have a broken washing machine so I know I will take my laundry to my parent’s house to do it there. Hopefully I can get a repair man to come and look at it soon. My mom, sister-in-law, and I are also going to have a girls day on Sunday and go to the movies to watch The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1. Hopefully next week sometime I will have an answer to share with all of you!
Coming Soon! The Results of My Pregnancy Test For IUI #2.
The Fertility Blessing
You know my deep desire for a child. A little one to love and to hold, to care for, to cherish. Grant that my body may conceive and give birth to a beautiful, healthy baby in Your holy image.
Guide me in all my choices so that this conception, my pregnancy and my baby’s birth are in line with Your will.
Heavenly Father and Holy Mother, hear this prayer of my heart, mind and spirit.
