I had my first IUI this past Thursday so I'm like 4 days out or maybe 5, I'm not sure do I count Thursday the day I got it? Anyways, Friday and Saturday I had severe cramping and lower back pain now today I'm so bloated I feel like I might explode and I have a lot of clear mucus like discharge. Are these common symptoms? My dr didn't tell me much afterwards and I was just so excited that I had it done and dead sick with a sinus infection I didn't think to ask anything. He gave me papers that said it was common to have some cramping or spotting afterwards but to call if I had a fever. This 2ww is killing me, there is nothing else I can think about but this lol

Hi! Friday would be 1 day past ovulation, or 1DPO. I had mild cramping in the 2nd week of the 2ww but it was caused by the progesterone supplements I was taking. Bloating started a few days before AF. Of course, all my IUI's ended up in BFN's so that's all I have to go on. Good luck and let me know how it turns out!
Me-25 DH-38 TTC 21 months. 3 rounds of Clomid, 5 rounds of Femara and 3 IUI's, all BFN's. IVF week of Jan. 21st. On Lupron since 12/30. Start Bravelle and Menopur on 1/11
