FIRST IUI

Postby MJD31 » Thu May 05, 2016 12:08 pm

Hello Ladies, ttc for almost 3 years, was categorized as unexplained infertility, been to 2 fertility clinic and decided to try IUI, today its my 7dpiui been having cramps and lower back pain, i have no one to talk to, family doesnt know, just me and my husband, been pressured by everyone on when is the baby coming, so it wont help if i tell them.

so i decided to right here to hear about your stories too, if anyone is in the same situation.

how early can i take pregnancy test?and is having cramps normal?

Cramping is definitely normal even this far out. I tested early at 11dpiui and got my positive. It's fun when it's just you and DH who know but it's a lot easier to have the support of family. With my first pregnancy we told everyone what we were doing but this time we kept it a secret. It felt so much harder not to have people to talk to but I'm also the only one in the immediate family who has infertility struggles so I don't know that telling people really helped anyway haha. Good luck!

Hey MJD, agreed with ebp here, cramping is very normal. I had on and off cramping for about a week after each IUI. As long as its not severe, its totally fine.

I didn't take a hpt at all until the beta 2 weeks after the IUI. I didn't want to deal with the disappointment of it being a false positive from the trigger shot, so I waited it out. I think that technically anytime after 10 days is pretty safe.

Good luck! :babydustb:

Hi MJD - I am 8dpiui too! And I have also been experiencing wet CM and tiredness. But trying not to read too much into it. This is my second IUI, first one I tested at 10dpiui and BFN. AF arrived a few days later. I think I'm going to try to wait longer than 10dpiui this time. TRY is the key word there. I was so sad last time, I think I want to hold onto that hope for a little longer this time. Best of luck!!
