I didn’t do jack shit at work today. How could I? I was completely distracted by other new developments in my life. I snuck out of work to go get a blood test to confirm whether or not the pee stick was lying to me. My IVF nurse called me and said my beta was at 382. She said anything above 100 is good. She was also the one that was trying to unsuccessfully console me when this IVF cycle was canceled. She laughed and said, what did I tell you? Converted IVF cycles CAN result in pregnancy! But I’m still nervous and I should be.

My next blood test is on Friday. I’m surprised they don’t want me to go in on Wednesday. I’m kind of bummed that I have to wait four days to confirm whether this is still a viable pregnancy at that time. But I’ve done enough waiting. What’s another 4 days right?

Someone asked me about symptoms. Nothing in particular that strikes me as odd. I have cramps, I have boobs that are sore sometimes and sometimes not. Heavy full feeling in the belly. I love olives, not loving chocolate so much right now. It feels EXACTLY like I’m getting my period. In fact, as I sit here typing, I’m still wondering if I’m about to get it. I’m trying to figure out what made the IUI work this time that didn’t work the other times. I did have that hysteroscopy to remove the polyps in August and this is the first IUI since then. This is also the first time that I’ve done injectables and a trigger shot with an IUI. This is also the first time I used progesterone suppositories. We also had shingles (me) and chicken pox (husband) although I’m sure that has absolutely nothing to do with it. I am convinced that all of this is completely crazy and random.

We’re not completely out of the woods yet and won’t be for a while. My husband and I have decided that if something doesn’t work out with this pregnancy, at least this is a step forward in that we know we can get pregnant. This is the farthest we’ve ever gotten and for that I’m truly grateful.

Thanks for all the support ladies….

Wanted to stop taking the progesterone supplements today so I could get my period and start my IVF cycle over so I peed on a stick this morning to be sure that I could stop. I am in shock. I had written this off completely because my IVF cycle had gotten canceled and I thought IUIs were not going to work for us. My husband refuses to be excited or believe it until I get the blood test. I’m with him on that. Skeptically optimistic???

I am getting some cramping still. Especially on the left side. I think it’s my corpus luteum giving me a shout out and letting me know that his time is up and he’s going to Neverland. Awesome. I haven’t tested again since my miserable 11dpiui BFN. Right about now, I feel like I’m going to get my period so I’m going to wait it out till tomorrow morning to pee on a stick again. My guess is that I’ll get it in the next few hours here. My timing is all jacked up because I’m in Japan. It’s technically Thursday in the wee hours of the early morning at home a.k.a. morning of 14dpiui when I would be POAS if I was home (the official POAS). This is so lame. I am so sure that I am going to get my period. I wish it would just start already at this point. Bah.
