And now we wait

I’m bloated and uncomfortable, cranky and hormonal, and can’t help but feel optimistic which terrifies me.

Today was the day of the IUI of love. AKA, the IUI that will work.  Because it must.  I’m battling some mild OHSS symptoms but am chugging water and electrolyte and staying on the couch to try and fight it off. I had 5 juicy follicles, but one looks like it was overripe, so 4. He gave me the talk about the chances of more then twins (7% ) and twins (20%) and I said “ok.”

Everything looked good and for the first time in my two year relationship with my doctor and nurses, they look optimistic.

Let the two week wait commence!

    Yay!! Welcome to your 2ww. It’s a long two weeks, I know, but I’m sending my happiest vibes in your direction, and will be hoping all my hopes for a successful cycle, and hoping that it passes as quickly as possible for you.

    I’m sending all my best thoughts to you and wishing and hoping with all my might that this 2ww is the beginning of a healthy and wonderful pregnancy and parenthood. And hope the OHSS abates quickly and without incident.

    Best of luck with this one. Did you ask with a 20% chance of twins what your chance of having one is?

    Good luck! I hope you feel better (and pregnant) soon!

After 5 IUIs, 2 IVFs, and the diagnosis of diminished ovarian reserve at the ripe old age of 29, I am now looking for information on embryo donation and adoption. I'm taking a break from blogging but will return when our path out of the world of IF becomes more clear.
