I don’t know how I feel about that term “pregnant until proven otherwise”. On one hand, now that the IUI is complete, I have to behave as though I am pregnant. On the other hand, it creates false hope. It really does.
Maybe PUPO is only for IVF patients?! I don’t know.
The IUI was Friday, it was fairly straightforward (it’s our 6th, so no surprises here). 46M of hubby’s best swimmers went in and then I went home and slept. Previous IUIs, I had gone back to work but I share an office with the most amazing woman who really urged me to just take a damn sick day this time. She was right, she always is, and sleeping made me feel better. Probably because I couldn’t be terrified while sleeping.
I realized the other day that if this IUI doesn’t work then I won’t become a mother in 2016. It will be another year of broken dreams and I just don’t think I can do that again.
So out of fear I called in sick today as well. I rested up this weekend and I think one more day of rest won’t hurt. Then it can be back to real life and waiting.
But for now, PUPO?!
