Feeling very low today

paeroking profile image

Originally my period is due today, I have period type pains coming and going, I feel tired, down and a little emotional. I am still getting muscular contractions like I do before a period. A part of me is feeling like the treatment hasn't worked even though I hope it has.

I have not done any lifting or been stressed at all so if this is a failed cycle then it is because my body has rejected a healthy embryo.

Fingers crossed for you, when you have been waiting for this sometimes I feel our mind plays tricks on us. Try not to worry; easier said than done I know.

Hiya Hannah it is a hard time 2ww, I have had a bit of nap and feel a little better than I did earlier. Need to eat and drink more as I havnt had much today.

Hi Paeroking

Glad you're feeling better but at least you're feeling something, which although unpleasant must still be a good sign that there is reason to hope. I had cramps too just after transfer and felt it must be my period, how depressing.... turns out pregnancy hormones can make you think like that, so chin up, it ain't over til the fat lady sings.

But tut tut - you really must feed your body! It's the least you can do to keep your spirits up and if you do it right it can be a easy source of pleasure so go on, what do you fancy - a little will do you good, so they tell me!



Hiya pokedandprodded, I have been eating more than ever except for today, I think because my period was due and I was feeling low I have eaten but not because I want to but because I have to but I don't think it is enough so now I feel a little better I am going to eat some goodies lol.

Sorry to hear you are feeling low. I know it is easier said than done but try not to think the worst. Like others have said i am often told that early pregnancy signs can be the same as PMS so you don't know it hasn't worked until your period arrive (or not). I still have everything crossed for you.

Sending big hugs

Thank you tracey. I'm just finding it hard to relax lol. Roll on Monday.

lots of luck Paeroking. Cramps can be a sign of pregnancy too. When I got pregnant years ago I had loads of cramping around my period due date, so I was in shock when I saw a positive result!

look after yourself xx

Thank you pollypopps my mood is very up and down right now.

Hi P,

I'm sorry you're feeling low. I agree with the others that the cramps aren't necessarily a bad sign. I had lots during the 2ww after FET, especially as it got near to the test date.

I know the waiting is really hard. Glad that you are posting about how you are feeling - remember that you have a right to feel as up and down as a yo-yo at the moment! Am thinking of you.

Thanks noper, I feel like a right grump lol. I seem to feel moody in morning but better in afternoon/evening if that makes any sense lol. At least when I have a moan on here I'm not upsetting anyone lol. My family and friends don't know what to say to me at times and yesterday I didn't want to be around any1 at all.
