Officially in a 2ww

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!


  1. Glad you were able to share the news with your family. Hopefully they will say extra prayers for you guys. I hope and pray the next 2weeks will go by super fast for you. Have a great weekend!

  2. Ahhh, the 2ww. Don't we all just love those? :) I'm praying that it goes by quickly for you. Crank up the "While I'm Waiting" song to encourage you.

  3. Oh man, the 2ww. I hope yours goes by quickly! Hopefully your mom will calm it down for you a bit!

  4. I just came across your blog + I had my 4th iui Friday April 30th! I do not have a blood test set-up, but will most likely test around May 14th [which happens to be my birthday] I wish you all the best + a positive outcome:)
