[quote="Babydreams15"]Prayingforourredhead, I wish he had normal counts but it got the job done :) how are you feeling?]

Absolutely! Like Lyn said it only takesy 1!! :)
I was crampy still all day yesterday and just a little crampy/bloated today. Feeling better tonight.
I worked out tonight and it felt good.

I’m sure you are nervous, but I think it’s going to go great! I’m so excited for you! Can’t wait to hear what they say! Sorry about all the nausea...but I think that’s a really good sign. Hopefully it only lasts your first trimester

It for sure only takes one! I always joked with my husband that his swimmers always had to be right, which was our problem. I typically only get a follicle on the left so they needed to get over themselves & go the other direction. This time I finally had 2 on the right (and one on the left) so they could go any direction they felt like.

I bet a nice workout was felt good! Hopefully that crampy feeling goes away, but I think it's a good thing!

My friend invited me on a "short" walk today with a mildly steep hill that wasn't too bad at all. She doesn't know I'm pregnant. I figured short & not too bad hill sounded nice. Man, it was sooooo long (took 2 hours to walk the loop) & it was massive hills up & down the entire way. Pushing the stroller with my 30 pound son in it made it even more fun. Needless to say I'm pooped & had some minor cramping for a couple of hours. All good now. Just exhausted.

6 days left...I'm continuing acupuncture and scheduled reiki for this evening. of course the hat and pineapple are still there along with the daily circle and bloom meditations. I've also started talked to the baby; asking them to get comfy in my uterus and hold tight. :)

Lyn17 wrote:Enigma8- you were asking me about my story. I’m 36 married April 2017. TTC since February 2017. We found out my husband has retrograde ejuculation July 2017. This is where the badder neck does not close all the way at ejaculation and most of his sperm goes in the bladder or the wrong place. They found a large polyp in my utertus and it was where the baby typically implants. I had polypectomy surgery September 2017 to have it removed. So we started IUI’s to get sperm where it needs to go. IUI #1 was 11/30 I got pregnant but hcg was 23.5 it doubled every few days for two weeks then I MC or had a chemical pregnancy 12/29 at 6weeks. IUI #2 in February didn’t get pregnant. IUI #3 on 3/5 we got pregnant hcg was 152 on Monday.


Thanks for sharing. Its so helpful to hear from women around my age. I just turned 36 in March. :)

I'm so excited for you!!!

Enigm8a- Yes I agree. Having other women around the same age is very nice and comforting. Also, you are doing the right things. Acupuncture and all the self help will definitely keep you more relaxed and on track for that BFP. Keep us posted

Lynn- how are you feeling? pregnancy symptoms?
Are they continuing to check your beta levels or just waiting for the U/S on April 5th?

Enigm8a, if you can handle waiting, I'd avoid getting a test. That being said, I have a problem & pee on all the sticks LOL

Lyn, how you doin'? How many weeks will you be on April 5th?

Just got home from my ultrasound. There's one little bean in there (as opposed to the 2-3 hubby kept saying) with a heartbeat of 148! Due 11/7/2018! It's actually real ladies!

Prayingforourredhead, thank you!! It still doesn't seem real. Now to decide if I go to my previous OB or get a midwife. I've been avoiding making that decision. How are you doing? Feeling better? You're almost halfway through the tww!

Babydreams- I’m sure it will take a little bit to really set in fully!! tough call on switching I understand why you’ve been putting it off.
I’m feeling alright, things have been different this time than the last two times but I hate speaking that as I don’t really know if it means anything. I’m hopeful!
Next week is my daughters soring break, and I only have to work two days....so I feel like the back half of the wait will go quick!

Enigm8a- my first two IUI’s I waited to test until the night before my beta blood text. This time I couldn’t wait and tested 10dpo lol. Let us know what you decide.

Babydreams- yes girl it’s real. I’m so excited for you and your husband. Congratulations.

Prayingforred- sounds like you will be busy enough to distract you a bit from tww. Are you going to do more accupuncture?

On our April 5 ultrasound I will be 6 weeks 1day. So far I am exhausted as heck everyday. The bloating is real. I’m 4 weeks and a few days but look 4 or 5 months pregnant. I take the progesterone suppositories daily and now that my body is producing it as well could be one reason the bloating is crazy. Sometime I have these quick sharp abdominal pains and I am so thirsty everyday. That’s about it.
