    Okay ladies, as some of you already know, I had an IUI procedure last Friday. My new wonderful doctor told my girlfriend and I that we needed to get me pregnant right away to "fix" me. I have free fluid in my uterus and it's big, suggesting that I am starting to grow a fibroid tumor. Getting pregnant has an 80-85% chance of completely curing me. And if we can get pregnant, I should feel wonderful during the pregnancy and if afterwards, I am not cured, my doctor will know his limits as to what he can do for me. If this doesn't cure me, I will most likely need a hysterectomy, and that's not being said or thrown around lightly. I have confirmed PCOS, Endo (which has come back full and strong) and the fibroid tumor is new and I can have it removed, but the chances of it coming back right away or just eventually are too great for me. My pain levels are off the charts since my surgery in Nov. 2009. So to find out that I have an 80-85% chance of being cured, that's huge. So anyways, my girlfriend and I went ahead and and researched donor sperm. We found a great place in Oregon and picked or donor out. $900.00 later...and a positive Ovulation test...we had the IUI procedure. If it indeed worked, I will not be technically pregnant until tomorrow. And if I calculated everything right, my period is due on the 26th of March and the other day we were at Walmart and found First Response's pregnancy tests that test 6 days before your missed period. So... that would be this Saturday. And I'm freaking out. I want to believe in the process and trust that it worked, but I'm so unbelievably scared that it didn't. We are both so excited for this baby that it feels like it's there. But I have this evil person in my head trying like heck to convince me otherwise. As for how I feel, physically, I'm exhausted (but could be due to so much worrying, can't take my sleeping pills or any of my normal prescription pills), I'm crampy (but I have been for awhile and it's hard to tell if it's normal cramping or beginning of pregnancy cramping), I did completely dry up after the procedure which is supposed to be a great sign, and also Monday and Tuesday I had light spotting which could be a sign for implantation bleeding, oh and my boobs hurt(but they have been weird off and on since my surgery). So as you all can tell, I'm having symptoms but I'm not sure of what. lol

    I just wanted to update everyone and let you ladies know I'm feeling. If anyone has any advice, thoughts, or suggestions I would appreciate it all! Please pray and keep good thoughts going until Saturday for this to happen!!!!! I hope everyone is feeling good and doing well.

    I will keep my fingers crossed for you and am sending you tons of sticky vibes ~~~~~~~

    although i will tell you from my seemingly never ending TTC cycle if you do get a negative test do not be discouraged. just wait a few moew days and test again. mine did not show positive until the day i was supposed to get AF and even then it was still faint. but good luck we all need good news.

    Oh sadie,

    I think it's going to take, and if it doesn't ..then Martie will just have to take that role, and we stand behind you 100 percent on the hysto...you are very knowledgable about your conditions and I too would agree you are a good candidate for a hysto.

    So I will say my baby prayers for you...I'm sure it took..just don't stress about it, and if the first test comes back negative...don't think you are not pregger's....always wait for a doctor confirmation on this one. Just because you do have so many medicatons ... don't want to start them and then find out you are indeed pregnant!

    happy baby news!!!!!! I love that!!!!!! xoxoxox's
