September 12th IUI - Take One

Today was our first of two IUIs. And I'm feeling hopeful. But the question is should I be?

The nurse today searched for a different catheter. She is the head nurse. Very dry, although I have a feeling there is more to her story. Like she was a former Stirrup Queen.

But, back to the catheter, I don't know if this is what the other nurses used or such. However I do know that I never felt it that viscerally before. When she put the catheter in, I nearly jumped off the table it hurt so badly. It was similar to the pain I felt for the HSG.

Oddly, it is also my first time that I am actually spotting.

Not sure if that is a good sign. The nurse insisted that it was a good sign; that I felt that muscle cramp. It tells her that she made into my uterus.

All I got to say is, I hope so. I truly hope so.

So my question is, did any of you get that sharp pain and did you get that all allusive BFP?

Please note that I know that it is too early for fertilization or implantation. I'm trying to gauge if her theory is right. That pain, is a good sign. I know that I'm being a little pathetic hoping for "a sign" so early. But, crap this is our last chance people. I need all the support (aka signs) to get me thru this two week wait!

I got that sharp pain with all of my IUIs. I also cramped and spotted a lot the entire day. The last IUI was no different that I can remember, but it DID result in a BFP! And it was the first cycle I had more than a couple mature follicles too. So those signs point to your 'experience' being similar, so hopefully the outcome will be the same!

All my IUIs were pretty uncomfortable and crampy. They had a hard time getting the catheter in. But one did work! I'm sending good thoughts your way that the nurse is right.

Well, mine never hurt and I've never gotten a BFP - so I hope the theory is true!

Mine didn't hurt, so I'm not much help there.

But I'm thinking positive thoughts for you!

I've never had an IUI but I hope your pain was a good sign and that it is a sign of more "pain" to come (oh, in about 8 1/2 months!).

Maybe that is a good sign. I've only had one IUI and they started with one catheter and moved to a different one. The second one was very uncomfotable, I spotted for a couple of days afterwards, and in the end wound up with a BFP. I'm pulling for you!!

I hope that the signs have a good result this time!

I hope the nurse was right and that it truly is a good sign. Good luck with the second one today! I hope that one isn't as painful for you.
