We are now 6 days post insemination. I have now stopped having twinges and I no longer have fertile mucus. I'm guessing this means that I either had a very subtle ovulation at some point between three and five days post insemination or my body has given up and has gone into an extended limbo period, again. Time will tell on that one. What I do know is that I will be amazed if this cycle has worked so I don't have any of those imaginary early pregnancy symptoms to deal with and very little anxiety about the whole thing. This has to be a positive in the long run, I just wish my body had played ball a bit more. The prospect of having it go off the rails again is not appealing.
We have an appointment with the specialist next week. It's just an update appointment really, when I imagine they'll just tell me to lose more weight and go back in another 3-6 months. Reading between the lines I think they're considering clomid for me, but they won't prescribe it until my weight is lower. I'm not sure it's something we'd be willing to try anyway, but until we're faced with it as a real option we don't need to decide either way.
In the rest of the world, all is well. My little girl is feeding me slices of apple as I type and we spent this morning first at soft play and then shopping, both of which are activities she loves. I just need to remember how amazing all this is, and that if we don't get pregnant again we're still unbelievably lucky.
