So, today is treatment cycle day 23 and 6 days past my IUI. All week long, I’ve dealt with cramps and acne courtesy of the progesterone. I also experienced a much higher level of fatigue than I am used to. It seemed like I was ready for a nap as soon as I came near a bed…or a couch. And then, came today. I woke up and…..nothing. No cramps. No sore breasts. No anything. A little while later came my mood swing. I suddenly found myself in a mood of annoyance toward my husband. Not that he was doing anything. It was more what he wasn’t doing. I recognized that it was a mood swing and maintained my composure, but at the same time felt a bit sad. I’m about nine or ten days away from my cycle and the mood swings remind me of my PMS symptoms before its arrival. I’ve noted that I haven’t had sore breasts or cramps beyond the progesterone and I wonder….did this thing work?
Am I pregnant? Or will I see a big fat negative (BFN) on the 8th. I hope for the former. I would really love to carry S.’s child.
This two week wait is starting to bring out the question in me.
