Very First IUI

JenniferS - May 7

OK, we just had our very first IUI about 2 1/2 hours ago. Is it too early to go buy a pg test? :P I am just a couple of days new to the board, but I feel so good after I read all the positive thoughts on here!

I am wondering if our experience is unusual in any way:
After the horrible experience of the HSG test, I was really nervous for today. The doctor @the HSG AND the N.P. that did my IUI asked if I'd ever had any cervical procedures. The Dr. didn't even get past the cervix during the HSG; he stopped b/c I was yelling in pain. Then today the N.P. had to insert & reinsert the speculum(@$%*), & use a really small catheter. She said she was having trouble threading the catheter b/c the opening wa so small. She said she wasn't sure if there was a block or what. BUT, everything got where it needed to go & she said there wasn't any "leaking" (gross, btw). I'm just wondering if anyone has had a successful PG after such a weird IUI. I wore my new Happy Insemination pink shoes & shirt to the Dr. this morning.......

Thanks, everybody, for making this such a comforting place to come to! Baby dust all around!

Jennifer - good luck with the 2ww. I am glad that everything eventually got where it needed to go. ;) All of our bodies are different, and I wouldn't worry too much about the initial difficulty.

as far as early testing....I wouldn't recommend it. I tested too early and got a negative. I was depressed all day, only to find out five days later that we were pregnant.

This is the hardest part. Come here anytime to chat and ask for support.

Good luck Jennifer!!! I'll keep you in my prayers too!
I got a positive from my 1st IUI, I didn't even feel anything except for the speculum- so I guess it's just the difference in our bodies. I wouldn't be too concerned with the pain- they say it's pretty normal especially if they assured you everything got to where it was supposed to. PLUS you had on your pink shoes & shirt & that is bound to help you stay positive!! ;)

The 2WW is the longest- but just hang in there & it'll be over before you know it. Are you having any different feelings in your pelvic region after the IUI?

Let us know what you find out & oceans of baby dust your way!!
