The dreaded two-week-wait period is usually spent googling "early pregnancy symptoms" and watching our bodies closely for any potential sign that we're pregnant. On Friday night into Saturday, I thought I had a few small signs: my back hurt and my lower abdomen hurt and tight. It could have been related to the IUI procedure and all the medicine I've been injected with over the past few weeks, but still, it was something.
Sunday morning was another story. I woke up with a sore throat that was followed by a fever, head congestion, and ear aches. I got in to see my family doctor Monday morning and she confirmed my suspicions--strep throat. I got a prescription for amoxicillin and was sent on my way. But, I did get to answer "yes" when the nurse asked me if there was a chance I was pregnant. That's the first time in several years that a doctor appt has happened in the two-week-wait and I was able to say yes. It was a little exciting.
They offered to do a pregnancy test then but I explained that the HCG shot would throw off the results anyway, but it's officially in my medical records that I might be pregnant. :)
