Just wanted to introduce myself to you all and share my story as I have only joined this site in the last 2 days.
I'm 35 and had my 1st DIUI on 24th August! Its my very 1st time ttc, so DP and I are very excited and maybe even too optimistic..my test date is 7th, only another 11days....
The entire experience for us has been difficult as we dont live in the UK so it meant flying abroad on Tuesday and returning that evening. Unfortunately DIUI is not available to us in our own country.
Since yesterday morning I've had constant lower backache and the odd tummy twinges. Has anyone else experienced this after IUI ? Could it be due to ovulation occurring in the last 2-3 days?
I'm doing the pineapple and milk thing and I'm also drinking 2-3 cups of raspberry tea per day. Its supposed to calm the uterus and assist in implantation! Anyone else tried it?
Just wanted to send you all lots of positive vibes and babydust.......looking forward to sharing the 2ww,its a fantastic support network so thanks to everyone and good luck.
Hope it's okay to join you guys. I did send a message on the general topics as a newbie, but I've since discovered this 2ww topic which is great. I've been a v. naughty girl and tested two days early on day 12 instead of 14 and guess what - is was +ive!!! I've tested today as well (day 14) just in case it I'd got it wrong! I'm praying I can get through the next 8-12 crucial weeks without another m/c.
I did have mild endo type cramps and have had a constant burpy feeling for 4 or 5 days if that's any help to anyone feeling the same. The cramps were never really painful, but just uncomfortable.
Unfortunately have got to go back to work tomorrow, which I'm not looking forward to but at least we've got over this hurdle.
Thanks for much for all your wonderful messages. I'm still not ready to pull out the champagne yet (well, guess I should say "milk carton"), but my hopes are getting there from all your words. I'll do another hpt test tonight and then the official test is tomorrow. I'm still really nervous though.
Welcome to layla, Maxbabe, Misty, Mandi and Annie.
A huge congrats to Morgan, Emeldak and Mantina
And wishing more positives from Alison Jane, KT, Lisac and Owennicki. Lisac, hand in there for tomorrow...you never know. KT, yes, I was bad and couldnt' hold off any longer. Can you gals believe that we finally made it to our test day? I'll be anxiously waiting to hear from all of you.
sorry I don't have good news to add to the bfp's we've had recently. got cheated out of doing the test with af arriving this morning. Had a good cry and now have to get right back out there and go for a scan tomorrow to see if we can go for ivf this month. Feeling sad
Well done to everyone with bfp's and good luck to the newbies!
Congratulations to all those getting postives! You give me hope.
Also sorry to read about those facing disappointment (that's an understatement) this month. Mt thoughts are with you.
I was wondering if I could join in here too. I had 2 embies transferred yesterday and am starting my first ever tww. It's hard to believe and I know it's going to be a challenge.
Annie M did u have embies transferred or was it IUI? My test date after the transfer yesterday is 10th september. I may do a sneaky hpt on the 8th (our wedding anniversary) but not deciding that at the moment.
Good morning ladies, hope that u r all feeling well today! I only joined this site y'day and have already found it so helpful (hence being on here so early today), well what else is there to so apart from constant knicker checking!! I dont know if anyone saw my message y'day about the tum pains & sore boobs but someone has suggested that is could be the cyclogest! any views on this please girlies xxx Nicola.
P.s Thankyou Karen for your reply x
Thinking of you and talking to the big guy in the sky, asking him to take care of you. Really hope your blood test shows some positive news for you. In the meantime, just take things as easy as possible.
Good Luck to all the girls due to test today - don't mean to single anyone out, as I really hope you all get the lovely BFP you all long for, but KT, my thoughts and hopes are with you especially, surely this has got to be your time .
I've just looked down the list of testers for this month - there seems to be too many sad faces, my heart goes out to all of you and hope and pray you manage to achieve your dreams very soon.
Would like to welcome Nicola, Annie M and Isobel to the wonderfully long 2ww....good luck to you all.
Debbie - so sorry to hear your news, its very hard to cope with....but best of luck with your IVF
Sally - thinking of you, much love
To the 4 ladies testing today - wishing you success and BFP's all round.....
Sarah Lou - I have been having weird dreams too...really emotional ones..have even woken up in the night crying....but at least during the day I am calm and sane (yes I am!!!)...loads of twinges but thats from the e/c....
Take care everyone, and have a lovely bank holiday with this lovely summer weather we're having NOT!!!
