I didn’t really think IUI was going to work, but I suppose it has. I tested first on Wednesday but assumed the line I saw was the trigger. I mentioned to my acupuncturist that I might be pregnant, and she said, “yes, I thought you were last week.” I’m not really sure what it means to be pregnant at 4dpo (when I was there last week), but heck, I don’t even really believe in acupuncture but I’m doing it anyway.
So here I am – beta today was at 73, which is fine, as far as the internets can tell me, for 13 dpo. I’m feeling cautiously optimistic, but I, of all people, know this is the first of many hurdles before we get to take home a baby. (Check out my TTC resume about what happened during pregnancy #1 to see what I’m talking about. If I make it to the NT scan, I’m sure you’ll hear much more about it).
Next beta is Monday. They’re also testing my estrogen and progesterone levels to see if I can go off of these pills I’m sticking where the sun don’t shine every night.
