One week

It's now been one week since my IUI. I did okay for this first week. I've been trying not to think about it. But now I'm starting to freak out a little. I don't have any symptoms, but that's not really that surprising. I have had some uterine twinges for several days, but that doesn't make any sense as implantation supposedly does not occur until around 8dpo. So, I'm not sure what that's about, but I think it was previously making me optimistic. Yesterday, I thought that maybe my b00bs were getting tender, but I think I was just making it up because that's what I wanted to happen.

Today I am not optimistic. I'm becoming convinced that it didn't work. Of course, I have no idea. It's impossible to know. But now I'm getting scared to poas. I don't know if I want to know. I mean, I want to know if it's positive, but what if it's not? Can I go to work and finish up there if I know my pee stick was negative? But the thought of not using it is unfathomable. I need to know. I'm an information person. So, Monday may be my first stick day, but maybe I'll chicken out. We'll see.

This wait is just so frustrating!

Keeping my fingers crossed for you. It is way too early for symptons, so don't put too much emphasis on that (as hard as that is).

Good luck!

It is still probably way too early to poas, so if you pee now, it could lead to unnecessary disappointment.

It is impossible to know. But it is likely impossible to know by POAS this early. Try to hang in there kid.

You're right, it's impossible to know at this point. And unfortunately, no amount of symptom searching will give you the answer, whether you find any symptoms or not. But you're getting close to the point when you'll know.

How early did you test positive with your other pregnancies? I think it's somewhat rare to see a positive before 10dpo and people often don't get a positive until 12 or 14 dpo.

You're almost there, hon. I've got everything crossed.

Ohh you took me right back to the stomach churning time of looking at a pee stick.

I will keep my fingers crossed for you.

Hope you have found some things to keep you distracted this weekend--I know how hard that is!!
Thinking of you...

The second week of the 2ww is always the hardest for me too. But try not to worry about symptoms...it's too early to be having any. I hope that when you do get up the nerve to POAS that you get a lovely surprise!!! Fingers crossed!!!
