So today is 10dpiui for me and I took test and it was negative. I thought maybe I had a chance of catching an early positive but nope. I am still cramping and getting vaginal twitches/twinges. I keep getting up to run to bathroom bc I swear it feels like I am discharging/leaking but there is nothing there. AF is due next week so I told myself I won’t be testing until 18dpiui if AF doesn’t make her appearance. Lol I probably won’t last that long but I will try (as the FRE test is sitting there and staring at me lol)
So I told my friend who also has PCOS but she is not doing IUI that I took a test and it was negative. She sent me back a message saying: “Can you please stop being a psycho. Everybody is different. If it is negative on tuesday then b ridiculous but 4 now just STOP. U always say your period os coming. It’s your way 2 prepare urself so ur not disappointed” She does have a point but I was a bit taken back by the psycho part. I thought she would understand more than anyone because she is going through the same thing but I guess I will keep my thoughts and feelings to myself. I just needed someone to talk to because I know what my body feels like when AF is due and I am getting mixed symptoms right now so I guess I wanted some comfort but oh well. I will wait next week to see what test says.
Also I know some have asked what IUI costs out of pocket and whoo boy just looked on my insurance website and in CT, it is a pretty penny.:
$3132 is what they are charging insurance for u/s, lab work, sperm washing, and insemination.
Out of pocket I paid $75 on co-pays, $240 for donor sperm, and a whopping $1200 just to be in the donor sperm program. And the emotional part is priceless because you can’t put a price on angst and mood instability. Well good thing my insurance covers 3 IUIs and 2 IVFs and I pay $5.00 for clomid, $10 for ovidrel, and if I would switch to injectables it would also only be $10 so I guess I do have that to be thankful for.
Today is last day of vacation for me and back to grind on Monday. So I will relax and go read a Nora Roberts book and just try to relax and pray AF is not coming.
Have a good day all!!!
