5dp5dt

Hey everyone,

So today I'm 5dp5dt and I'm going insane. I feel so negative and can't shake the feeling that it's not worked.

The first few days I had some little symptoms and yesterday and day before I had period type cramps which were very painful yesterday and lasted about 20 minutes then stopped. Today I've had nothing at all and just feel totally "normal".

I've not long to go until my blood test but this wait is 100% the worst part of the whole thing. I genuinely didn't expect it to be this hard.

I'm keeping busy and trying to take my mind off it but nothing really helps to be honest.

Praying I get the BFP but just really feel like that isn't going to be the outcome 😥

Hi Amanda. I felt the same pretty much from the day after transfer and as you know I had a bfn BUT there's no way I could possibly have known it didn't work, especially that early on when everything had gone so smoothly! What I'm trying to say is don't beat yourself up; I bet we all feel the same! And when some get their bfp at the end of it I bet they're shocked because they weren't expecting it to work either! Good luck 🍀 x
