Thanks so much!!! It's hard not to think about it when I am crampy all day. I'm just keeping busy and prepared for either result! Thanks for the baby dust:)

Hi ladies, how's everyone doing today?

I'm 9dpiui today and since yesterday have had some creamy coloured discharge and very sore boobs. Could it be symptoms of implantation?

Lots of baby dust everyone :-)

Hi sdham and Sophie! welcome!
Lawd I have been gassy and bloated too! I have never tested out the Ovidrel but on day 8 piui I did a opk and it was negative. It was super positive day of Ovidrel. So the Ovidrel could very well be off my system already though they say 14 days. Every one metabolizes different medication differently.
Today being Father's Day, I bent and took a cheapie Walmart hpt. negative of coz and I knew it is too early to test but the day, the desire, you know? Other than the symptoms I have talked about before and today, nothing major that I have noticed in addition. Headaches on and off but I have been terrible hydrating. Then a dizzy spell with a queezy belly when I was cooking DH some spaghetti with meat sauce. I think it is the meat again. My boobs are not sore or bigger. My skin dryness is still bad. The dandruff kills me! Did a apple cider vinegar and lemon juice treatment yesterday my scalp is way less itchy today! BD has been going on but I keep thinking maybe we should wait? heheheh. That is not gon fly is it lol!
Happy Father's Day to the dads, husbands, and dad figures in y'all's life!
God bless you and God hear our prayers to fill our hearts and arms with the warmth a baby brings. :)

Hi, I'm so glad u posted this. I had my first iui done on the 6th June. I'm going crazy at this point. I have a 31 day cycle. Af is due on the 23rd June. Took a poas on 13dpiui :( BFN. I have no symptoms and did not see any implantation bleeding. The BFN was very hard to accept. Feel like getting bloods done coz I'm losing it.

Hello! So glad I found some ladies going through the same thing as me! This process can be intimidating. I have my first IUI tomorrow morning. Any advice or words of encouragement? Thanks.

Try some visualization techniques, think about that sperm finding and penetrating the egg, be positive, try not to be stressed out or anxious at all. Eat a healthy breakfast and stay hydrated. It's a quick procedure, tiny bit of discomfort for like a second and then it's done. Rest afterwards and take it easy. People can get prego on their first attempt so good luck to you, I hope you're one of those ladies!

Thank you Pandagrl, I will keep that in mind. I have read a lot about eating pineapple to aid in implant; anyone ever tried this?

Yes, I tried this my last cycle, but couldn't find pineapple with core for this cycle so had a glass of red wine instead ;)
I think the pineapple in particular is worth doing. Mild exercise is also good to engage the circulatory system... good luck!

Pandagrl you crack me up! I can dig wine to supplement pineapple core looooool!!! Aly welcome!!! I took the day off both IUIs and I'm glad I did. I suffered severe cramps onto the night then it was like nothing happened when I woke up lol! Doc said I can do whatever right after, even run. Who? Me? Shoot! I was propped up in bed defying gravity working from home girl. I ain't playing with this expensive project. Shoot! Pandagrl and I are on the tail end of our cycle.

Hi All! Hope you dont mind that I crash your group! Looking to chat with ladies going through the same as me!
I did do my IUI on Friday (Currently 4dpIUI). It went pretty well - Hubbies washed count was 28 million which is great! Pretty sure i am out this month though.. Still haven’t had a temp rise - which is crazy because I ovulate every month and I’ve never had this issue before. Also crazy because my OPK was positive the day before my IUI and now its negative which you would think would mean I ovulated, but my temps say otherwise! ALSO i am on day 17 of my cycle and I never ever ovulate past day 15 - even on clomid.... I wonder if that means I am not going to ovulate this month?? Anyway. Just trying to stay busy. Hubby and I have been BD every day since my IUI until I get that surge I am waiting for. Just don’t want to miss it… even though my hopes are basically diminished! Had a good cry about it. I am lucky my hubby is very supportive – but I can tell he is disappointed as well. Gearing up and trying to mentally prepare for my next cycle while trying to stay positive that we were successful this month by chance! It’s so hard not to get discouraged during all of this!! It’s so stressful! Side note: Any of you ladies have bad cramps after IUI? I am concerned I may have an infection or something.. I have been having off and on cramping since the procedure (4 days now) I have also had gas the last 3 days!

Alees, welcome!! And it's totally normal to have those cramps for days sometimes. And can even manifests as really bad back pain which Sonya you seem to be suffering from. Even a week later I had intermittent cramps. Then lately for me it's more pain than cramps so I'm believing for implantation. Pandagrl says you need to envision that sperm meeting that egg and all that magic so I'm doing just that! Lol! Two more days, well, one actually coz I think I will start testing tomorrow night. Sunday was too early but the Father's Day hope had me testing anyway lol! Maybe even test today too for he heck of it since I'm going to the grocery store. Deal is if they only have a cheapie. Not shelling out big bucks for a digital this early.
I'm excited for all of us in the dreadful tww. I have surprised myself by staying really positive all through!
Prayers for all here!

Mrs R, how are you feeling? I hope this is the one for you, girl! Did you find a cheapie at the grocery store? Try to wait a couple more days if you can. I have been testing like a maniac and it's just making me grumpy cuz it's all BFN's :(

Hoping and praying that the rest of you girls have better luck with your cycles, baby dust for everyone!
