Halfway through my 5th 2ww... I have nothing to share or offer. Close your browser now if you don't want to read pessimistic jargon.
If I had to place a bet on my odds, I'd say I'm not pregnant. Part of that is based on fear of getting my hopes up... but the rest is:
- 3 days post IUI I had EWCM for the first time in months (the Clomid dried me up previously), 3 DAYS after my IUI
- I have NO symptoms
- I've been feeling PMS cramps since Saturday, 5 days post IUI... back cramps, not abdomen cramps
- My BBT temps are pretty darn low, extremely low for this part of my cycle
- 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. I'm just too afraid to get my hopes up that I might be pregnant for the known disappointment of a negative.
I'm committing to one more IUI cycle (after this cycle completes), for a total of six IUI cycles... and then I'm going to IVF.
I NEVER, never contemplated IVF when I started this process... I was going to get pregnant my first time out... but now, I'm ready for IVF. I believe IVF will give me the best opportunity to realize my dream, goal, destiny, of being a mom to a really great kid!
Sorry friends, I'd love to be a ray of sunshine... I'm just not feeling it.
