hopefull

Dear Lovelies;

Today I take my third first pregnancy test since my IUI. I have to admit that I took one on the 2nd because I was hoping to share the Superbowl with the pregnancy announcement. I bought a new test today that wasn't digital and had to test one out today. Both of the tests that I have taken have been too early and negative. Which leaves me to the remainder of this post. Now this could be the part where you exit and go to another blog. I mean it's not cool listening to a women cry about her failed fertility treatment round. BUT since I am the author of this blog I get to write my feelings and share them with the world. #sorrynotsorry

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!

  2. Depends when the egg implanted sugar. If it implanted lat there is a chance you might have tested too early. Happens to me.

    1. Oh I know I tested early. I just wanted to see if it would show a positive already. I am going to wait till tomorrow morning and then take another one Monday morning. Hopefully waiting for the 19th day helps the HCG in my system show better. <3, Amy
