TWW: Day 3

The first three days of our TWW have looked, well, like any normal week, really.  We went to work on Tuesday, rallied at home for dinner, made Lisa suffer through the season premiere of Pretty Little Liars and then drifted off to sleep.

We don’t own a home pregnancy test or device that would indicate pregnancy.   For this I am glad because I don’t hear pee trickling from the closet like some fertility themed version of the Tell Tale Heart.

TRUE! nervous, very, very dreadfully nervous I had been and am; but why WILL you say that I am mad? The disease had sharpened my senses, not destroyed, not dulled them. Above all was the sense of hearing acute….

We received a card when checking out after our IUI on how to cope with the waiting period.   Coping is a good word because no one could go through these two weeks as if nothing occurred.  Lisa called me to ask me to forgo the carrots in her snack for this evening because they are too difficult to digest and would take away blood supply from the uterus…She also texted me about her CM – What does it mean?  So I know she has been reading, I know her idle mind this morning was spinning with questions…Every thing is a sign – even the absence of signs is a sign.


Of course, I immediately Googled what CM meant after an IUI, etc.  What I found were a bunch of forums asking the same exact questions with a thousand different answers in the form of personal stories, opinions and if/thens.  All of the cookie generated ads on my computer have gone from Olivia vacations and expensive clothing to fertility and baby themed ads.  We will continue to ponder, question, speculate…Trying to calm our minds is of no use…so we cope…because we won’t know until we know.  For now that day is June 24th.

  1. I liked the season premiere (also that was the world’s darkest hospital). 🙂 I’ve found just distracting myself (lotsa books and video games) worked pretty well for getting through the 2 twws I’ve been through.


  2. My strategy wad to remind myself that anything I felt or didn’t feel could mean something or it could mean nothing and in any case I couldn’t know for 12-14 days. Whatever you do don’t pee on anything until at least 12 days past IUI. It’ll be a waste of money and a broken heart and it won’t be accurate anyway. Keep busy and good luck!
