Well this is my first post in any forum..   I just wanted some opinions so I figured why not.. Let me give you a little history.. My hubby and I have been trying for about a year.. Um, we fought for about 6 or so month on improving his sperm count.. He had low sperm count "under 5 million", due to cancer a long time ago.. Well it improved but not nearly enough.. So we chose to use donor sperm and an IUI.. The donor sperm we chose was 25.2 million motile sperm .. On Jan. 10, we had our first IUI.   A list on my symptoms
January 10th - IUI on Ovulation   
1 dpo  Severe Cramps and fatigue
2 dpo  Severe Cramps
3 dpo  Abdominal Cramps
4 dpo  Sore Throat upon waking, Constipation, Stomach Cramps, after sex with hubby spots of blood on toilet paper, "gentle sex"..  Sticky White Discharge
5 dpo  Tired, Moody, Sharp pains on side, SEVERE heartburn waking me up in the night, restless couldn't sleep, 
6 dpo  Very moody, fatigue, VERY Severe heartburn once again.. Its killin' me  :D
So if anyone could please tell me what they think..   Any advice would be so greatly appreciated..

I agree with OTMomma, sorry greensad.gif The first few days of cramps I think could be explained by the IUI. Same with the bleeding, you may have had a little bit of damage to your cervix which the sex stirred up again. The other Sx could be stress related or just coincidental. Having said all that, I don't think any of this means that you're *not* pregnant. Just that it's too early to know anything, as OTMomma said.


Hang in there. Only a few more days before you can do a test thumb.gif

With my first IUI (which did result in a pregnancy :) I had a lot of cramping the day of and the day after.  Slight symptoms showed up around 7-8 DPIUI but I did not test til 13 DPIUI.  You  "could" be pregnant!!! Please keep us updated. Sending you lots of baby dust!
