Re: when to expect signs of pregnancy after IUI
 
Hello Charlene,

I am trying to stay positive, I am getting cramps most of the day now, it is not so painful at night or early morning, it is strong during the day, I still get brown discharge, no blood, Thank God! and lower back pain from time to time, yet I am worried, I keep checking every five minutes, I always feel I am getting my period. I called my Dr. and he advised me to take a blood test on Saturday if there is no bleeding.

All I can do is pray, anyways, Saturday is not far away.

Cheers,

Shereena

Shereena your bleeding sound like it is implantation bleeding and not AF.I also had a few cramps and I thought AF was going to show. As long as you are not bleeding there is a chance of getting your BFP. Good luck for your b/w on Saturday:D. I am sure AF is going to stay far away.

Please keep me posted.

Hi ladies
This is my first post on this site, I had my first iui 10 days ago and since have had 2 shots of Pregnyl. The past few days I have had cramps,backache,sore boobs, feeling moody and very emotional. I haven't had any spotting and don't think I feel pregnant. I was told to do a test 18 days after iui, but I am dying to test but am too scared I know I will be upset if its negative. Would really appreciate some advice I feel lonely as none of my family and friends know I am having treatment. I do talk to my husband but he can't understand everything, please help.

Thanks Nicky

Hi Nicky,

I'm sorry that you're feeling so anxious. I'm in the 2ww of an IVF cycle, and I can definitely relate!!! I'm so nervous about going in for the b/w!! I've found that it's best not to look into any signs. The meds will do crazy things to our bodies. I had sore boobs before the embryos were even transferred back into me. Then there is also the fact that many women don't experience any signs at all this early. Just try to take it a day at a time & feel free to stop in here & vent any time you need to. That's what we're here for. :) Wishing you all the best!! I hope this cycle brings your bfp!

Thank you so much for your kind words Holly, very encouraging for me. I am taking on board your advise and am going to keep myself busy over the next few days.

I wish you the very best of luck too, you will be a mummy very soon

Thanks Nicky

Hi Nicky,

I'm glad that my words made you feel better. It is so true that many women don't experience any signs of pg this early on. So, when do you plan on testing? Please be sure to post your results. I'll be keeping my fingers crossed for you!

Holly :)

Hi there - (this is my first post- just joined today). I had my 1st IUI 7 days ago and had really bad cramping 3 days after it, and now I have such bad PMS, my husband is even complaining about how grouchy and irritable I am!! I took Clomid and the trigger shot so I am not sure if the PMS is in anticipation of AF coming, seems kinda earlier though. Haven't taken any other meds since the Clomid.

Wishing you happy thoughts and a BFP Shereena, we all know how tough this whole process can be :)

Shereena I have not heard from you in the last couple of days I know you have got a beta tomorrow I really hope that it is a BFP for you. Thnking of you.

Hi Natty and Nicky welcome to the boards.

Natty I am sorry you are feeling so grouchy. I will be honest with you and say when I was on clomid I was a raging lunatic....a complete nutter :dizzy::dizzy:. I am sure t is just the medication. Good luck I hope you will be posting a BFP soon.

Nicky I hope you are feeling better and will be posting a BFP soon.

Charlene

Thanks Namibia - I am trying not to read into any signs since you never really know if its AF on the way or implantation! I am hoping to have a grouchy, PMS free weekend (for my husband's sake).

Natty I hope that you feel better soon and the PMS goes away for your DH's sake. I realised after I stopped clomid that I was crazy and I said to my DH how did you live with me? He said it was not easy, but he managed. I am sure your DH understands. Our hormones are always taking over.

Have a wonderful weekend

Hi Natty,

I was prowling through d site trying to figure out what exactly is going on in my body, and your symptoms are exactly like mine. I had my IUI 8 days ago, and had some cramps on the 3rd day. I was also on clomid and had d trigger shot a day b4 d IUI. I also had some PMS (generally unhappy and grouchy) which i think may be have been a side effect of clomid(d side effects usually show up a week after the medication has been stopped). Other than the above, nothing much seems to be happening. my breast seem slightly bigger but maybe i am being delusional. I also feel nauseous at night but sometimes it is there and sometimes it is not.
I am praying that u had a positive pg test, since ur symptoms kind of match mine. Let me know please.

Thanks

Judy, welcome to the boards! I don't think you'll get a response from these ladies as they posted a whole year ago. I never did IUI but I have been successful with IVF. If you have any questions, don't hesitate. Good luck!:angel:

Re: when to expect signs of pregnancy after IUI
 
Thanks for your reply. At this stage, i dont think my IUI was successful. Will try again next month. I have done 3 HPT since my IUI which was 12 days ago and still have BFN.
:(

Hopefully, next month.
