I had major uterine cramping yesterday afternoon, which the doc warned me might happen. Seems if you shove something up your cervix and in to your uterus, the body reacts. I don't blame it at all. Quite a violation. Physically I'm feeling much less bloated than yesterday - I did have close to 20 follicles ripening in there. And the cramping has disappeared this morning. I'm actually looking forward to hitting the gym after work today.
I was hoping that Mr. Jem and I would have some intimate time yesterday, to consummate this baby-making thing. Only he was in a pissy mood all day. We finally talked around 10:00 p.m. - post Jem emotional (hormonal?) breakdown, tears and all. The truth is that it totally bums him out to be using donor sperm. While he accepts that's what we need to do, hearing the sperm count of our donor (32 million swimmers) was a real blow. I can totally understand. However, it's hard for me to understand unless he actually TELLS me what's going on, rather than avoiding me, avoiding discussion and watching sports to escape. Luckily we did have that talk and now we're back to feeling close again.
Tomorrow I'm hosting my local RESOLVE meeting, as the regular leader is cycling (her 4th or 5th IVF) and needs the month off. I'm really looking forward to having the ladies over.
If you are in your 2WW, raise your hands (proudly)!
All the best,
