1dpiui- I’m in a constant state of bloating

My husband is so great.  Last night, after he got home from from work, he made me dinner (DiGiorno pizza and breadsticks and Caesar salad, thank you very much) and brought it downstairs to me while I was watching T.V. laying on the couch.  I felt like the fat woman on TLC who can’t move so she has people bringing her more food.  

And he bought me ice cream.

“You’re not going to eat them both are you, Risa?”  Me: “I make no promises.”

He’s so great.  I think he was thinking about what was going on in my uterus.

I mean, the nurse never told me I had to lay flat the rest of the night.  I’m just trying to make it easier for the sperm to navigate that hostile environment.  The least I can do is lessen the gravity on them.  I imagine it’s probably the same as salmon in breeding season:

That’s a lot of work swimming upstream.  Plus, add in some hostile grizzly bears and you can imagine what is happening up in my ute:

Scary.  So I have a sweet husband who didn’t mind catering to my every whim last night.  After all, it’s for the children right?

I definitely had some more cramping and pain last night than I did the previous two IUIs.  Today I feel better.  I’m bloated, but now instead of the Clomid doing it, it’s the progesterone I’m back on.  It’s just kind of never ending.  I spend two weeks with vag suppositories, bloated.  Then I get my period, bloated.  Then I go back on Clomid, you guessed it.  Then I have (maybe) a day or two of feeling like myself, before an IUI is done and it makes me bloated.  Then then… progesterone again. 

Tonight, Chris is taking me out for a Valentine’s date.  Not a bad way to start off the 2WW. 🙂 And IComLeavWe starts again next week so it’ll be a good distraction for me.

Omgosh. I hope you don't feel quite like the fat woman. That picture is just sad. Anyway, hopefully all the bloating will be worth it in the end….for the children 🙂

The bloating sucks, but it does go away quickly!

Ha ha I felt a little bad putting that up. It is really sad, isn't it?

I don't know, I feel like I always have it. Of course I eat salt like a horse so that probably doesn't help.

Oh I know! It was delicious!

Oh so sad about those Girl Scout cookies! I would love to keep you company! I can't believe all those restrictions you have. Yikes! Here's hoping for us both!

Yay! So excited for you! The 2WW is the WORST! It's so hard NOT to analyze every little thing that goes on in our bodies during the LONGEST 14 days EVER! I love your blog- especially your candor!

I wish I had women near me who actually GET what we are going through and we can cry and bitch and celebrate together!!

I know Ann that would be amazing to be able to get together with blogger friends. Maybe someday, it's definitely not unheard of. 🙂
