Today marks CD1 and an end to cycle 8
so much for our first IUI being a success.
This weekend was rough,
I started to feel sick to my stomach Saturday morning 
by Saturday evening I had a temp and couldn't
eat or drink anything. 
By Sunday at 11pm my fever would not break
so off to the ER we went. 
It was apparent upon my arrival that I needed fluids. 
They made 4 attempts to insert an IV before 
finally getting a good vein. 
Labs were run and the Dr. returned shortly 
to let me know my hcg levels were negative.
(I wasn't really surprised as I had been spotting that morning.)
By this point I had such a headache and severe stomach ache 
that I needed something for the pain. 
I figured I would get a few tylenol and take a nap 
while my fluids got to work. 
When the nurse returned with morphine and nausea meds 
I was shocked, but not refusing anything they were offering. 
The meds did the trick and I was asleep with in 5 minutes! 
when I woke up I had already gone thru two bags of fluid. 
I felt so much better! no nausea no stomach ache no headache! 
They gave me a script for zofran and 
sent me on my way around 6am. Scott still had to go 
into work at 9 so he dropped me off 
at my parents to spend the day resting. 
AF fully arrived today marking CD1...
We are now on to cycle 9 
and our second IUI
 Why wait? Right?



  1. I am sorry that your first iui wasn't a positive. Sounds like you were really sick and had so much going on. Glad you are feeling better and have such a great outlook. Fingers crossed for iui #2.

  2. I'm sorry Alexis. Glad it was nothing serious and you are resting at home. We are onto IUI#2 as well. Hugs and baby dust.

  3. I'm so sorry it was negative. It always made me feel best to continue another cycle ASAP. Maybe with being so sick it's a good thing you didn't have implantation. Otherwise you'd probably be worried sick.

  4. I'm sorry the IUI didn't work this time! I hope you are feeling better now, at least physically and I wish you the very best of luck with the next round!

  5. I'm so sorry that it didn't work out this time and that you got sick. Hope you feel better and best of luck with the next cycle!

  6. Sorry this cycle was a bust- best of luck for this month though! Hope you recover quickly and feel better!!

  7. I'm so sorry that this wasn't the one for you, and that you've been feeling so yuck. Sounds like you've had a lot on your plate, but I'm glad you're feeling better physically and are so resilient emotionally. Onwards and upwards! Wishing you the best.

  8. I'm sorry this first IUI was a bust and then you got sick on top of it. I hope you're feeling better soon and that this next IUI works for you!

  9. I'm sorry! Hope you feel better

  10. I'm so, so sorry. What an awful way to spend your weekend on so many levels :( I'm sending you lots of IUI#2 dust, thoughts, and prayers. XOXO

  11. I'm sorry for the rough weekend you had. Hoping for good things this next cycle!

  12. oh, alexis. i'm so sorry for all the bs you've had to go through. you always take it like such a champ...such a fighter!
