kiki - April 23

Hi, I am brand new- just joined after reading all the supportive & caring posts and wanted to be a part of this!! I do have a question, I am 7 days past my 1st IUI and all week I have had mild cramping sort of, it's kind of just light pressure low in my pelvis- and wondered if anyone else has experienced this- and what does it mean? I am PCOS, my DH has decent sperm, we have been trying for a year & 1/2, and had a blighted ovum last August after just 5 weeks of being PG. That is how I found out I was PCOS and not producing any progesterone. Since January I have been on Clomid- 100mg, last 2 months have had Repronex shots and HCG Shot to make me ovulate- now I'm on Progesterone pills. Any advise would be really appreciated!!! ::)

Hi Kiki,
Welcome to the site! Goodluck with your IUI. I hope it brings you a wonderful ++++ at the end of your wait! There has been many successes on this site lately and I hope you can join the other girls.

I only know what I have felt in the past. I am not a doctor, but I think that sometimes the stimulation meds make you crampy and achy. That is what I have found because the only time I feel this is when I have taken the stimulating meds. For me it is kind of a sharp crampy feeling. I hope this helps! Keep us posted and let us know what is going on. Take care.

Hi Kiki, welcome to the site. The girls here are wonderful.

Well, I'm 11 dpiui and all of my achy, crampy feelings are gone. I think most of the girls who've done IUI had this feeling as well. I told my dh that it felt like they inserted air in my uterus, becasue of the pressure pain. It lasted for the better part of the 2WW...now I only have 3 days to go and don't have that feeling anymore. The most I feel now is tiredness. This too was my first IUI.

When do you test? I pray for big +++++'s for you.

Thank you both for the welcome & the +++ thoughts!! Much appreciated!! :D It makes sense that these pangs would be from the stimulation meds, as they seem to be getting lighter & lighter with each day. I guess I was just hoping maybe it was a positive thing- since the way I found out I was PG the 1st time, was by going to the dr for a bladder infection- they gave me these meds that said -do not take if chance of being pg- so the HPT showed ++. Wishful thinking I guess!
I test next Sunday morning, but from reading some other chat online- I'm trying not to get my hopes up. I told my DH that we may have to do 5-6 IUI before moving to the next step, just to kind of plant the seed that it may take a while for this as well. I don't know if I was trying to convince him or myself!? I too have been extremely tired this week, I thought it was the progesterone pills, but I'm glad to hear this is normal. Anyhow- thanks again for the advise, keep me posted & I'll keep my fingers crossed for you both & oceans of baby dust!

Kiki, Welcome to the site and baby dust to you. I havent done iui in years but i did an ivf with donor egg. I was crampy for a week after both. First one pg, second one not pg. I think it is those darm hormones.

Good luck and let us know how it turns out.

Baby dust!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi Kiki,
I felt the same way that you have felt after my first IUI. I believe that most of it was from the medication that I was taking. Best of luck to you.
