It's almost 4:30 in the afternoon and I'm just sitting up for the first time since Mark & I drove home from my IUI this morning. For some reason, I'm in A LOT of discomfort this time around. The only way I can explain how I feel is to think of your worst menstrual cramp and imagine it being constant (if you're a guy, you won't understand at all). The first two hours after the IUI were absolute misery. I couldn't even stand up straight. I'm hoping the cramping will soon end especially because Advil is off limits. Boo! But...if this brings us a blessing (or two, hopefully not more than four) it will all be worth it. :) Mark is taking good care of my every need with no complaining so, for that, I'm really thankful.
I start progesterone and estrogen on Monday. The medications help my lining be nice and thick for the embryo to implant and will help to prevent miscarriage. Gals with PCOS, like myself, have a higher likelihood of miscarriage. I'm happy to put away all the needles but have to laugh that they're just replaced with more drugs. Gotta love fertility treatment. ;)
