4DP5DT… and the PIO tickle!

Yay… I finally get to type it! ;) I know it’s already 4DP5DT, but I have been trying to keep a low profile. The more I think about it the more I want to consult Dr. Google and so on and so forth. I can’t wait for the next 5 days to pass by! I keep telling DH that I want to POAS… but he keeps reminding me that my job right now is to take it easy and make a cozy home for the embies and not kill myself with anxiety! It probably is way too early to POAS anyways… but I want to know what’s happening in there. I have a few things going on in my system, which I would like to believe are super high side effects of PIO. During the IUI’s I have been on Progesterone suppositories… so yes, I have never had progesterone in my blood as high as it is right now (with PIO). I have had a few cramps & twinges here and there, feel like AF is on the way, I am peeing a lot (but then I am guzzling down gallons of water because I am parched every few minutes), my bo.obs are sore as hell, I feel weak and tired all the time and can sleep forever! I know all too well that my mind can play a fabulous game, so back to keeping a low profile and not being very verbose or animated about it! At the same time, I am trying to cherish the idea that I am PUPO!

Oh… I have been wanting to ask about one thing! My PIO shots have been going well. Besides the soreness at the site, nothing extraordinary… however, I am getting tickled! Yes, that’s right! When the juice starts going into my bum, I get a ticklish sensation and I have to think of something serious so that I don’t burst out laughing and hurt myself with a broken/stuck needle! Has anyone experienced this feeling before or am I just weird!? May be I should just be happy that there is at least some source of entertainment for me in this process! :P


  1. Glad to hear things are going well. I'm doing suppositories instead of injections, so I have no insight there. Sounds interesting though! Isn't this all so surreal? BTW, your beta is on my birthday! I hope that brings you some luck!

  2. I have the same kind of sensation LOL. You are not alone. Good luck!!! Can't wait to hear your beta results!

  3. Sounds like great progress!! My PIO shots never tickled! That's a blessing for you!! Enjoy it!

    Also, you have an award waiting for you on my blog!! Check it out!

  4. Sound like things are going well. Good luck and I look forward to hearing/reading about your first beta. I will start my first round of IVF in late August/early September after our first IUI was ectopic in June. I love reading your stories in order to prepare me for what's to come. Thanks! :)

    OMG - Kelli beat me to it again. I've left an award for you over on my blog.

  5. I wish I got tickled from my PIO, oh well. I'm glad everything is going well and am praying for good results in five days!

  6. I love your symptoms!! I won't say anymore!!

    Love Fran

  7. I had similar experiences with the progesterone suppositories... my embryo did turn into a pregnancy, although I'm supposed to miscarry any day. But, I never really knew... were my symptoms from pregnancy or from the drugs. Probably a combo of both.

    Best of luck to you and your family!!!!!
