My IUI was 2 Thursdays ago, and I had negative HPTs yesterday and today. So, it’s lookin’ like a no. Going off the Prometrium today to allow the progesterone levels to drop back down so I can get my period. Then, we start all over.
The plan for IUI #2 remains about the same. Only difference this time to start with is Clomid on days 3-7 instead of 5-9, because last time we were trying to delay to get past the holiday weekend. I talked to Nurse H today, and luckily I can just call her on day 7 to schedule the follicle check ultrasound. This saves me a pointless doctor’s appointment to discuss the same thing, thus saving me money.
It is all a little sad, but not depressing or anything. Perhaps I might feel worse about it when I actually start my period and know for sure, when it seems more real. I dunno, we’ll see. I was trying not to let myself get too excited about it to begin with. The first cycle that I did Clomid-only back in the fall, I just KNEW that it would work. It had worked the FIRST TIME for several people I had talked to. One even had CLOMID TWINS! MIRACLE DRUG! Etc. And it really sucked hard when it didn’t, so I was guarding myself more with this. Regardless, there is still some expectation that it would work. If there wasn’t, why would I do it? So, it still blows. How could it not?
Regardless, Honey Bear and I have had a pretty nice day. We went to lunch, got coffee and did some shopping. We bought a charcoal grill, and I picked out some blue-flowered summer plates for using out on the deck. I weeded the flower beds and assessed my yard and plants after the morning rainstorm.
Lately I’ve been catching up on reading the last few books in the No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency series, and I’m on the long library waiting list for The Help, which everyone keeps telling me I must read. Saturday was good times at Alli’s birthday shindig, and Shan came to town. Mid-week G and I went to see the Jane Eyre movie and loved it.
So…. I would love for you to leave a comment or send me a message if you wish, but please do not call me. I don’t really have much else to say about it. It probably failed, it sucks, what else is there.
