what a weekend! B was sick the whole time, it was extremely cold, and it even snowed. so much for a relaxing weekend at the beach. to top it off, i woke up sick early sunday morning and have been sick ever since. i love that B is so good at sharing everything with me, but i really wish he hadn't been so generous with his germs.
i called casey, my nurse, to find out what i can take to knock this thing out. she finally called me back 6 hours later and told me that i could take regular robitussin, no CF or DM or fancy stuff like that. so, i sent B to the store. i should have just gone myself. he called me from the grocery store to tell me they only had the kind with extra crap in it. after that i sent him over to walgreens, where he called me to tell me the same thing. i suggested he talk to the pharmacist to find out which one was the "regular" tussin. he complained about there being 10 people in line, so i just told him to come home. i headed out, tried walmart first, and what do you know?!? adult tussin right there on the counter. how about that? i double-checked it with the pharmacist (using the old "it's for my friend" story, because explaining that i didn't know if i was pregnant or not is more hassle than it's worth) and headed home. it seems to be doing the trick, at least. i feel much better this morning! (aside from my hormotional fit)
last night i started cramping. i'm 11dpiui and i cramped slightly off and on for several days after the IUI, but this is much more noticeable. it's not hurry-grab-the-tampon kind of cramping, but hard to ignore nonetheless. my boobs still hurt, too, the nips throbbing from time to time. mother nature is one twisted witch to make the symptoms for AF and the symptoms for pregnancy so similar!
this is the point of my 2WW where i start to go crazy. even though i told myself that i would not get my hopes up, as soon as i get to 10dpo, i can't help but obsess. i hate to admit it, but i keep googling __dpiui every five minutes. i am so pathetic!
also, i'm super excited about tomorrow being our first hero humpday!!! i've got heroes set to be awarded and i'm so stoked! don't forget to keep sending those nominations, though.
