Today I take my
I shared my feelings about follistim treatments and my thoughts on exhaustion. So here is the real skinny because ladies I am stretching for sanity and advice. The first couple of days after my IUI I felt as if someone was blowing bubbles in my uterus. It was weird! Then it went away ~ nothing happened for a few days. Then I started getting mild cramps.. they interchange between the left, right and center. Then the lower back pain started.. just like you would get before your period. That has lasted for a while; meaning my back is still hurting. My boobs started hurting (which is why I got really excited) but sadly went away a couple of days ago. I should also mention that I am taking endometrin.
Now I am here hoping and praying that I don't have to float through life before trying another treatment in May. I'm in constant prayers that a miracle happens and I see a faint pink line on that pregnancy test Thursday morning. But I have questions to other women who have gone through fertility treatments. I keep reading and hearing that it's too early to test. That a pee test wont show a positive until I've reached four weeks.. one period to one period. The fact that I will be testing two weeks.. 14 days later. I googled different pregnancy tests because I was worried that my digital test was the wrong one. I read that First Response was the second best test to take & that they recommended at least 19 days before testing.
Has anyone, who has gone through fertility treatments, had issues with getting a positive through 'at home' pregnancy test? I'm wondering if I should ask the Dr for a blood test. These cramps aren't normal and neither is the back pain... then again I used different meds this round. I dunno. My husband is convinced that I am pregnant and so Abby. I just don't want to get my hopes up and then it be a negative. I also don't want to be ok with a negative now if it is a positive.
Here is to hoping... otherwise I'll be drinking and heading back to the gym after Valentines Day!
