Knocking on wood over here, but I think the IUI was timed very well. It feels so good to think the timing might finally have been right, after five prior IUIs that all felt like they were done somewhat late.
I saw the surge on an OPK Tuesday night, which I think means I was well on my way to surging on my own, if not already there, when I did the HCG trigger shot. Then, Wednesday morning, my temperature showed a dip, and I did the IUI later that day. This morning, my temperature rose by two and a half tenths. So, I'm thinking the sp.erm might have arrived a few hours before the egg. It could have been a half day prior, though, which might be pushing it on timing with a frozen sample. What do you think about the timing?
I taught my middle school classes today. This morning, I felt quite a bit of uncomfortable cramping. Not unbearable, and I didn't need to take anything, but definitely uncomfortable and somewhat intense at times. No bleeding though. Has anyone else experience this? By afternoon, I was fine. It maybe have been uterine irritation, or reaction to the sp.erm, or possibly ovulation? I hope it wasn't ovulation, as that would put it on the late side. It felt more uterine than ovary-based, so I think it was some kind of irritation/reaction.
Luckily, I'm not working at the college or middle school tomorrow. I'll be doing computer work for my other job and catching up on things around the house, but don't have to drive anywhere, thank God. I've done WAY too much commuting back and forth in rush hour traffic the past three days. How do people do that every day, like with the long commutes of an hour or more? Blech. Grateful to have some home time.
