I was so disappointed this morning

I have been MIA since last week... I try really hard to keep occupied after an IUI. Work, cleaning and naps. Little interaction with people - because I am so sensitive to the hormones, I'm emotionally sensitive anyway - it's for everyone else's protection, believe me. And, I find it a little easier to not obsess if I keep a low profile.

So I had my IUI last Thursday morning. I am on CD7dpIUI in my 2WW (I know I have two cycle buddies here too) So I'm down one week - the plan was to test no sooner than next Friday.

Went to the dollar store yesterday and bought a few dollar sticks - along with storage bins because I tore everything out of my kitchen cupboards. Toyed around with the idea to test out my trigger. Since I have never seen two lines on a test, I thought it would be fun.

FuN?!?!!! really.

What was I thinking? I can't even get two pink lines on a GUARANTEED, can't miss it - it's in there - got the HSG in my system cause I injected 10,000 iu last week..... that trigger should last at least three more days.

Oye.

Well, at least my symptoms are different this time. Every time I trigger the HSG, I get sore nipples. This time I did not get sore nipples until two days ago at CD5dpIUI - and I am very VERY amorous (but terrified to do anything about it in case we upset the bean if he's still deciding to hang around...) so we'll see if I get better results NEXT FRIDAY. Not reading into any symptoms because that can only drive me crazy too.

I swear I am not going to do it again. If I flounder - hold me back girls!!!!

Jenni, that just doesn't seem right! Sorry it stressed you out more, but I wouldn't worry too much about it. I have never tried the dollar store tests, can't get them here. Hopefully you get to see those two pretty pink lines really soon.

Susan -
thanks for the support as always - you KNOW I am a silly one. What was I thinking?? I really had a sense of humor about the whole mess, and I knew that early testing for me was not a good choice. I told my husband and he just rolled his eyes - he knows I sneak a test in there now and then even though we talked about how it is negative for our attitudes. I scream at the screen when I see someone else saying they are even thinking about it. (don;t do it, don;t do it) I never listen to that little voice... hmmm.

Bottom line. I have no self control.

Trina -
thanks for making me feel like I have a home. It's good to know I'm not the only one !!!!

I've learned this: STAY AWAY FROM THE CHEAPIES. See Krista's new rule.

Krista-
Good new rule. I knew better... and the problem is I KNEW BETTER!!!

jessica -
Evil Sticks, that's priceless... lol

Kali -
Like I said, I knew it had a chance of backfiring. But I read a wile back that Mattie drew in an extra line on a test so she could focus on the goal... thought I could one-up the idea.

Thanks everyone for the support as always. I am not crushed since I knew I dabbled in an area I shouldn't. I am waiting until FRIDAY and that's it. I'll keep my fingers crossed, but my nipples are fading and I have been crampy like PMSey. But we'll see Friday.

:)
