The IUIs went well this weekend. Copious egg white cervical mucus was confirmed by the doctor performing the second IUI; enough for a host of hungry brunch goers. He also patted my foot upon completion. I felt a bit like a dog. Hopefully I’ll be a pregnant dog! Woof.
I started the progesterone this morning, which I absolutely hate. Besides the fact that I walk around feeling like you have a yeast infection for two weeks, I get dizzy and crampy. As much as I try to relax (haha! Yeah right) during the TWW, I can’t ever forget about it because of the nastiness that is being shoved up my lady business twice a day. It could be worse though; I could be dealing with the PIO, which I have heard horror stories about including one woman who heated the oil too much and it ended up burning her from the inside out. Holy crap balls. Maybe my yeasty suppositories aren’t so bad after all.
I was on Crinone 8% suppositories and ended up with a nasty yeast infection among other things. I hope all works out for you, it will be worth all the side effects.
Hope it all goes well!!!
Jenn, do you know why you got a yeast infection? Did your doctor say it was related to the progesterone or was it just a coincidence?
You’re right though. If this works it will all be worth it.
Gaby, thank you!
