We had our 3rd IUI yesterday. And I'm feeling (very) hopeful. In fact, I'm going to assume for now that I'm pregnant (and hope my world doesn't crash in 2 weeks).
We've always said we'd do 4 IUIs and then re-consider our options so maybe knowing we have 'one more' helps. Our doctor, though, actually said he wants to talk about next steps since this is #3. Not sure what that means but I'm setting up an appt in this 2ww because I want to know our next plans if this one doesn't work.
I'm not running the 1/2 marathon this weekend. I'm abstaining from my beloved bik.ram yoga (hot yoga) and I'm not riding my bike to work anymore (for now).
I slept 10 hours last night. 10 hours!! I'm going to assume I'm pregnant for now.
(I know, I know, it's probably impossible to be pregnant this quickly much less feel the side effects).
I also said I wouldn't tell my parents about this cycle, telling my husband "no good could come of telling them" and of course, I broke down and told them. (The 1/2 marathon is in their 'hood and I just couldn't say "I haven't trained enough for it" because they know about my 2 recent 10 mile runs...).
And I told them, please, to not get excited because we don't know and it's harder for me when they (and by they, I mean my mom) gets excited... but then she proceeded to say "Glad you lost weight but maybe you'll gain it all back" and "Maybe next year when you do the 1/2 marathon, I can babysit". She was trying but couldn't help it.
Ok, so she's getting carried away... which is what I didn't want. (But if I'm going to assume I'm going to be pregnant, then why can't they??? If I can get excited about pregnancy, they should be able to too).
Fri, May 14 is my blood test. And of course I already bought an early home pregnancy test to do either 1-2 days before that. We fly out for a long weekend to St. Petersburg, FL for B's cousin's wedding, so I'm hoping it will be a celebratory weekend or a much needed trip away.
Here's to a peaceful 2 ww!
