  • Hi belle I am also on my 2WW 6dp 3dt so know how you feel. This unfortunately is my 2nd cycle, but this time feel more relaxed about it and avoiding symptom spotting. Remember the progesterone will have similar bloating effects like AF so don't assume the cramps are AF on her wicked way.

    My OTD for blood test is 27th but can do HPT on the Saturday before so just over a week left............. FX for us both and anyone else on the wait.

  • Hi missmc I'm think your right about the Meds as I do feel a little bloated. My main concern is my period pain 4 days on and very painful in the bladder area, cramping. But not continuous It comes and goes throughout the day. Maybe this is normal I don't know everyone is different so just bear with it. Roll on Wednesday my test day. Eeek!!!!!! Hope all goes well with you take care and keep me updated. Xxxxxx

  • Hi Belle - 7 I am on my day 4 after trasfer however I dont feel any symptoms at all which actually makes me more.stress after reading that most of you experience some kind of symptoms. Also my doctor says me that I may feel symptoms same as period which is absolutely normal and doesn't mean that it is your period and many women stress on this without realising that it can.actually be sign of BFP. I would advise you to relax and wait for the test result . I wish you best of luck xxx

  • Thank U for your reply, I know stressing about things a lot, this is my first cycle and every pain, feeling I'm symptom spotting. I'm so scared that I will get my period it's so daunting every time I go to the loo I'm checking the paper I'm bloody para........ I went out today took my mind off things it was great. Hope your ok and not as stressed as me lol. Take care not long now for us both good luck and pls keep me updated. Xxxxxxxx

  • Hi all, I'm on day 9 of 2ww of 2nd round of ivf and feel totally the same as u all! I test this coming thurs. Some days I'm ok and some days I keep fretting! Belle-7- I would try not to worry too much about all the pains.I'm assuming u had a fresh cycle? My last cycle was a fresh one and I had loads of pain. So bad I had to take pain killers. This time I had a frozen cycle and I feel so much better as I have no pain really just some twingey things going on.I'm certain the pain I had last time was due to egg retrieval and nothing else so that could b why u are experiencing pain too? And iv read so many stories about people who had pain and tested positive that I don't think u need to worry yet. I spent the whole of my last cycle a nervous wreck so I'm trying really hard this time to stay calm in the hope that will help!! Good luck everyone xxx

  • Hi bella79 yes it was a fresh cycle and my first one I hope to not go through this again plus I have no frozen embryos. Only had 5 eggs and three worth injecting as I had icsi, and from that I only had one fertilised egg which was put back 10 days ago , my egg retrieval was so painful the next day absolutely horrendous but the day after that I was absolutely fine. I really want to test early but I'm scared of disappointment. it's been hard for me and my partner has been told no family at all and nobody at work knows.I'm off at the moment with anxiety so they know nothing it's been so hard this last month to keep everything under control and underwraps. I hope all goes well with you second time lucky good luck babe. Xxxxxxx

  • It's so tough isn't it? I ended up telling quite a few people as I just felt it was all consuming and I wanted people to know why I wasn't the person I used to b before this whole process started. I find it hard to hide. Maybe it would help you to tell a few people? Although everyone is different and I hear stories about other people who feel exactly like u and dont tell people. I really hope it all works out for u and u Don't have to go through this God awful process again. The thought of having to do this all again is unthinkable to me at the moment! With regards to testing-it's so tempting isn't it but I stupidly did last time and obviously it came back negative. I kinda knew it was stupid at the time as it's unlikely to show positive anyway if it's too early and then I felt a bit more rubbish! I'm not going to do it this time as it's not worth it and I know it will affect my huge effort to b positive and calm! So basically I wouldn't recommend testing early! How r u finding it being at home while ur on the wait? I had this week off but go back next week. I'm kind of nervous as my job is quite stressful at Times-I'm a teacher-but then the time went sooooo slowly this week as I was off!I don't know what's best to do!xxx

  • I can't bring myself to tell anybody my beaver have to go through this again on my tell my mother-in-law other don't have any parents. My partner has a big family's mum is wonderful though so I do feel she needs to know. You're right about the test I will not test to early as it's not worth the heartbreak. I'm a supervisor at a hotel and my job is very very stressful 10 hours a day on my feet no breaks half of the time it's just ridiculous, I could of done it been totally exhausted for the whole two weeks. Anyway been at home is been nice to relax just me and She's my world and I clump of glow. I like to card making so that has kept me busy, also going for short walks visited my sister a few times she's got twin boys had to be very careful they don't jump on me there almost 2 years old. Hope everything works out for us if you ever need me please message me I'm always here regardless of the outcome take care xxxxx

  • Hi Belle- 7 by reading your post I can say that I am in the same boat as you. This is my first Ivf fresh cycle of which we had 7 embryos and only 2 made it so we decided to put both in order to increase our chances which left us with no frozen embryos, it is more or less like a gambling everything or nothing. Me and my husband are alone in this journey we haven't shared with anybody which leave us to bear any outcome by ourself without any additional support, so definetely I understand you how you are feeling at the moments. In fact all of us are looking for symptom or signs which can gives us hope. Although I try not to think about it is natural, same as you every time I go to the loo i check if there is any bleeding although I know that my period is due as the same time of my test which is still bit far so probably that will be the time in which I will be really tensed. As I have mentioned previously to you I dont experience any symptoms even I didnt have any pain after egg collection which was good but on the other side it makes me feel like that there is nothing happening inside me so I am really confused. My testing day is 27 Monday however I think I may test on 25 Saturday. When is your date due?

  • Hi my test day is 22nd I'm not looking forward to it I just can't think . I'm a wreck. It's so nice we are almost in same situation not telling ppl. I really didn't think there was so many ppl out there with fertility issues.... It was only when I started at the hospital with so many opointments and all the diff stages I went through, then I seen other ppl on my journey following in my steps, so yes we not alone out there. it's really daunting really to think. Sorry don't mean to be negative bit low today and thoughtful. I wouldn't test befor it's not worth it. But it's up to u . Hope all goes we'll good luck. xxxxxxx

  • Thanx Belle -7 i wish you possitive result as well and try to relax or just do something you enjoy to do. I am thinking to test on 25th but i am not sure how brave and in what mood i will be, if i see some positive symptoms of pregnsncy i will probably test earlier but lets see. You take care and hope for the best i have got my moods as well so you.might feel down or in good mood, it is all those hormones xxx

  • Hi belle-7.Thanks for thinking of me.how's things with u? I wasn't great over weekend. Had remained so positive last week and I seem to have lost that now!keep thinking the worst-but I'm not sure why. Just can't seem to imagine that I wil b lucky enough for it to work. Maybe cos I'm back at work and thinking I should b taking it easy. Think ur v sensible to have toko the time of with ur job as I'm sure it's full on.not long to go now which is prob why I'm so anxious!I test the day before u .Hope all is going well for u.lots of love and luck!xxx

  • Honestly I've been thinking exactly the same I'm not that lucky it seems to be to big a dream to come true. Last week has just been like what happens happens for a reason kind of thing, I've really been quite calm the last five days

    Anyway. hope you get what you desire because nothing wrong in wanting something

    Normal some of us can't get. Roll on Wednesday for me. Xxxxxxxxx

  • Glad ur feeling calmer now. I'm sure loads of people think it won't work and stil does so I'l keep on hoping! Wishing u all the best for wed xxx
