Entering the home stretch: 6dpiui


My only symptoms are a few progesterone side effects. The strongest being CRAZY dreams. Don’t even ask. I wouldn’t tell you if you did. You would think I am insane! 

I’m not reacting as strongly to the progesterone this round. I have been chilly the past few days though. I went back through my notes and realized that I usually don’t get the hot flashes until the 2nd week of the 2WW. Just trying to keep myself warm – especially my feet (that’s what my acupuncturist always says). 

Other than being tired from my dream-filled nights and slightly bloated, there’s nothing else to report.

I know it’s early still though. 

I went to softball last night. I was a sub to start, so I told my coach to leave me on the bench. I kept score for the game instead. Figured that was “safe”. Even though we all know, there isn’t much need to be paranoid safe. 

Our next game is Wednesday when I’ll be 12dpiui.

I plan on testing that morning.

If it’s BFN, I’m having a beer or 2 that night after the game. We just got sponsored by a pub that is offering us Buy 1, Get 1 Free drink specials after each game. Last night, the bartender gave me 2 iced teas. 

If it’s BFP, I’ll be as excited as if I just hit my first grand slam (which I have yet to do in this lifetime). I will use that excitement to fuel my power, and hopefully hit at least a double. 🙂 Double? Wonder if that could mean twins? 

Either way, I’m doing much better emotionally this month. I’m staying away from Mr. Google and I honestly feel like I will be ok whatever the outcome may be. 

6-8 days until we know… 

Here’s hoping.

  1. I came across your blog on google (I know….I shouldn’t) but I’m bored at work and we’re currently going through our own fertility treatments too. Officially trying for almost 3 years! Start IUI #2 next week. I know how you feel….this journey SUCKS and I’ve had to go to 2 baby showers in the past 3 weeks…nice right?!?! Sending positive sticky vibes your way. One of these days we’ll get our blessings. Take care.


    • Feel free to follow! 🙂 I don’t think I would have made it this far into our fertility journey if it wasn’t for the wonderful women I’ve met online who are also going through it. Feel free to let me know if you have any questions. Sometimes Google can be oh-so-misleading but I’m glad it lead you to me! Good luck with IUI #2
