    My first IUI, why did I do a home pregnancy test when I knew not to???

    Hi all,
    After years of trying DH and I finally sought help. I was supposed to have a cervical insemination but we discovered that my cervical fluid wasn't allowing his sperm through, in fact the few sperms that made it through died, quite horrific to watch on a monitor!
    Anyways, we ended up doing an IUI. On day 11 I stupidly did a home test with the results showing negative, I"m going in 2 days for the official blood test, I'm quite sad but hoping for a surprise?
    Next cycle I know better.... I should patiently wait. There's always next cycle but I am hoping that perhaps it was too soon to tell with the home test.

    Hi Canadian Girl,

    I just wanted to welcome you to the boards. I'm sorry you got bfn on the hpt, but there is definitely a chance you tested too early. It sounds like you haven't given up hope, and that's a good thing. I'll be praying for a surprise bfp for you w/ the blood test. Good luck!!

    Holly

    Hi Canadiangirl, firstly welcome to the boards. I am so sorry you caved in and did a HPT and got a neg (those sticks are truly evil), it could be too early to detect pg. I got three neg before I got a positive so do not loose hope.

    Good luck for you Beta in two days time. Sending Lots of baby dust your way.

    Charlene

    Hi Holly and Charlene,
    Thanks for your kind message, much appreciated!
    This has been a bit of a struggle for me (as I"m sure it is with everyone) as I am really the only member of my group of friends who is not a parent. So, I find everyone is having a hard time relating and although people are trying to help there have been some very insensitive and thoughtless comments made. I think that people just aren't sure what to say (or not to say).
    I'm glad that I found this board, I think it will be a great support while going through this time!

    Hi Canadiangirl I know how you feel. I am the youngest in our group of friends and I am the only one who does not have children and I am the only one who has ever suffered from IF. This board has really helped me and these ladies here are wonderful friends.

    You have come to the right place for support and encouragement.

    canadian girl! I, along with every lady here, I think can COMPLETELY relate to insensitive things people can say. Luckily, you wil never hear those things here. For me, this board is a safe haven----if it weren't for the ladies (and the few, the proud, gentlemen ) here I would probably be crazy! You've found good friends for life coming here

    I'm sorry those evil sticks gave you a BFN. Those things really are horrible. But who could blame you? The 2ww is so hard. I'm just praying that you get those high positive numbers!

    Hi Canadiangirl. Just wanted to extend you a warm welcome to the board. This painful journey we are enduring while trying to achieve our baby miracles has brought us together... one of the few blessings that have come along with IF. I hope that your beta in a couple days does bring you a fabulous surprise! Please keep us posted!

    Thanks so much everyone! I have my blood test tomorrow and I am SO stressed out...
    My breasts are so sore and swollen so I"m hoping that's a good sign. Mind you I"m on projesterone so I'm thinking it might just be a side effect.
    So much information yet not enough information, I'm driving myself crazy!

    Thanks again everyone for your good wishes..

    Hi there, and welcome!! Just wanted to let you know that I too caved in yesterday (11dpiui), and got a BFN. My doc had said to wait until Friday to test, but I just couln't resist. At least you get a blood test tomorrow, I wish I did!! I will keep my fingers crossed that day 11 was just too soon for us!!

    Hey Canadiangirl! Hope you are finding some way to relax this evening. Your beta will be here in the morning. Wishing you tons of luck! Crossing my fingers the progesterone is not the cause of the sore and swollen breasts!!!! Good luck dear!

    79miles - Sending babydust your way as well! Just a few more days and you will know for sure hun!
