As many others, I'll post a few of the searches through which people reached my blog. I was looking for the weird or freaky ones, but there really aren't any...

is it a good sign not to bleed the day of your ivf pregnancy test?
Actually, it's hard to say. Sometimes the progesterone and other hormones (that are given less frequently, like hCG) are strong enough to keep you from getting your period. On the other hand, you may bleed the day of your pregnancy test and still end up having a healthy pregnancy.

how soon do you get pregnancy symptoms after iui
You could start having symptoms as soon as 7-8 days after IUI, but the symptoms are so similar to other things that it's really hard to tell until a few days later. Generally if you have symptoms that surprise you (like running to pee very frequently, breast tenderness, feeling really tired) that get stronger and stronger, it's a good sign. Good luck!

positive ovulation test 2 weeks past ovulation
I was just reading on that this could actually indicate pregnancy. On the other hand, a pregnancy test will be more accurate.

failed ivf cycle blog i feel like a failure
I am so sorry :-( Sometimes these things fail and no one really knows why. I hope your next one will be a success. In any case, I think we have very little to do with whether the cycles succeed or fail.

Lots of 2ww, two week wait, etc. I hope they end happily.

Thanks for your comments on my blog, it's wonderful to know that I'm going to come out on the other side of this relatively intact!

Those were good answers to the search questions -- you are right, some people have crazy examples of searches that caused hits on their blogs!
