8 days post IUI…so many questions…

I’m on my 8th day post IUI and my mind is full of questions.

When not at work, I’m obsessed with net surfing, researching about any symptoms related to post IUI. Crazy huh? I only had 6 hours of sleep last night and the first thing I did this morning was to open my PC and log in.

I’ve been feeling my breasts and nipples to find they are not sore. 😦 Why are there no symptoms? Does this mean I’m not pregnant again?! What’s even crazier is having 2-3 acne breakouts which are signs of AF coming.

I’m beginning to worry now…

On a two-week wait (2WW)

I’m on a two-week wait.

The wait is killing me…

But not so much during the first time…

You see, my partner and I have been trying to conceive for a while now.

My first IUI was on June 20. Obviously, it wasn’t successful. I was really excited during that 2WW. I was thinking whether I should test or not. Then I bought a home pregnancy test and tested the following morning. It was big fat negative! It was devastating. I cried all day. I didn’t go to work. I never imagined that was how I would react. I made a pact with myself never to test again.

Of course, my partner and I never gave up. So on to another IUI procedure.

When AF showed, on CD4, I went to my doctor. Second IUI was last July 18, a day after I turned 36.

Now, I’m 7 days post IUI.

Really hoping this time, I’ll get pregnant.

I Want to be a Mom

I guess the title says it all…

I want to be a mom.

I’m 36 years old. Never been pregnant. And I’m starting to wonder why…

Have you heard of unexplained infertility? Well, I’m thinking I belong to that category.

Blood tests showed I’m normal. HSG showed my fallopian tubes are patent, not blocked. My partner’s sperm count and motility are normal too. I have a regular period with no cramps.

So what could be the problem?

I don’t really know.

This year though, June 2008 to be exact, we went to see a Reproductive Medicine expert. He introduced us to Intra Uterine Insemination (IUI).

Without second doubts, we tried it. However, it didn’t work. It’s okay. Will try again.

“Please God, make me get pregnant with my partner’s. I really want to be a mom. I know I will be a good mom.” This is what I always say to God. I’ve been praying a lot, especially since getting on with this TTC journey. I hope God will have mercy on me.
