CD19, 4dpIUI: Forever

Oh my goodness, these days are just dragging on and on!

The HCG is almost out of my system now: nipples are back to a normal color and only slightly sore. The bloating is almost gone. I'm still getting tired in the middle of the day but a 20 minute power nap is working rather than a two hour nap.

The only strange things I am noticing are, 1) I am having to urinate frequently [I counted: 12 times in 14 hours yesterday - not normal for me.]  and 2) when in the bathroom, there is a thin white discharge. According to Dem Internets, both could be symptoms of very early pregnancy. Although implantation, if it's going to happen, won't start until tomorrow (through Thursday), I'm hoping both are good signs. I'm keeping a look out for the super smell in the next few days...

Just for fun, let's add the fact that I didn't have a bowel movement yesterday. But, again, constipation could be a *sign*. UGH! I'm clearly going crazy.

One bad sign is that, when I get up at 4am to urinate, I have trouble falling back asleep. Which always happens right before my period. I'm hoping that's simply a result of the HCG leaving my system. And/or my naps. Please, don't tell me otherwise right now.

I've moved up test day to start at 10dpIUI, which is this coming Sunday. I can't stand the wait!

Please, make Sunday come quickly. Please, let the test be positive. Please, oh please, oh please.


  1. I feel the EXACT same way... about ALL OF IT! I mean every stinking thing is a sign of pregnancy... and I've had ALL the same "symptoms" as you... Is it possible to sleep for a week?

  2. I've had the same signs but my breasts aren't sore and my period is due the 19th. Praying that all goes well for you and you get your BFP this cycle.

  3. Praying for a positive!!! The TWW is SO hard.... I'm also praying that it goes by quickly for you!

  4. Keeping my fingers and toes crossed for you that this is your cycle! Yes, I do think that any and all fertility meds can mess with your sleep and it's not a sign of a period necessarily at all. Also, your progesterone is probably higher no matter what, even if implantation hasn't taken place yet...thus the constipation. I do think it's a good sign, because your progesterone is probably sky high and that is good no matter what!

  5. I will add a few pleases to that last line for you. Please, please, please, please, PLEASE let this work!!!

  6. Ok I'm three days late here but just wanted you to know I'm thinking of you too during this wait. Also, just so you know, I didn't have any symptoms at all in the TWW. So, no symptoms is not necessarily a bad thing. But symptoms are also a good're good either way I guess?
