Trouble TTC

Rough Day ***Pregnancy Mentioned***

Today sucks. We had our first IUI on Monday and today I felt great when I woke up. As soon as I got to work I started having period-like cramps and back pain. I know it's early but every month when I start my period I get a few days of cramps early on, feel great for a few then the major cramps kick in. I'm feeling super discouraged when I was trying to be positive :(

To top it off, my coworker is leaving for Aruba tomorrow and I told her to have to big drink for me-her response "well it will have to be virgin, I'm pregnant!" She then went on to explain that it wasn't planned it just happened. Lovely.

Bring on the wine and chocolate.

Re: Rough Day ***Pregnancy Mentioned***

  • Well that certainly makes for a shitty day - I'm so sorry.  I know there's no amount of preparation that makes the disappointment of AF arriving any less painful - and hearing about an "accidental" pregnancy just makes it that much worse to get through.  
  • So sorry!! We had friends send out a text announcing their pregnancy. Nothing like opening a text expecting a game night invite only to have your heart ripped out.
