CD 26, 13dpiui

Yesterday, the RE's office told me to do a test on Thursday, and if it is negative, then I should stop the progesterone and wait for my period. Just like that, I guess. I thought I'd be getting blood tests at 14 dpiui, but oh well. In spite of what all you are telling me, I am pretty confident that this cycle is a bust. When I was cleaning the bathroom last night, I started crying. The kind of tears that bring you to your knees and to the floor, the kind where it feels like you'll never get up, the kind that brings the dog to the threshold of the room, waiting to see if you are OK. It was a good cry, and although my eyes are really puffy today, I feel relieved and calm.

I just got back from the park with my pup. We ran 2 miles, and I was able to find a quiet spot to do some sun salutations while he dried off (I wet him down with the hose since it's so hot out). I got a good run and a good sweat out of me, and I feel pretty darn good. I'm spotting more today than yesterday, and if my timing is correct, I should see AF Friday or Saturday.

Thanks for your support and for reading. IF sucks.

IF does suck. I'm so sorry. I know those cries and they are totally necessary sometimes. And you're right, it can make you feel better to release those emotions. Thinking of you...

I'm so sorry about the cry - sometimes it's good to let it out...

And spotting isn't bad - does not mean it's over!

Thinking of you. Yes, IF really sucks.

I'm so sorry hun ;). IF is the effing worst! I'm glad you were able to get outside with your pup and run it out. And isn't it how funny how dogs totally know when you're upset and need some puppy kisses! Hang in there.

First time visitor here. . . .

FWIW, our RE never does a blood test for IUIs unless you have a + HPT at home. He always has me test 14dpIUI. I have seen others who always get a blood test, but personally I'd rather know immediately, in the privacy of my own bathroom, if my test is going to be negative.

I'm sorry you are going through this. IF does indeed suck. :-(

I am so sorry this is not your cycle. A good cry always leaves me feeling lighter. I am happy that it works for you too. Sending you some {{HUGS}}

Hey there... just checking in on you. Didn't hear from you yesterday, so I'm guessing the news isn't good... ((hugs))
