I completely understand the messages I've seen about the 2WW wow it's so long haha.

Feels like a rollercoaster had ET on Friday which was day 3 after EC - they had 2 - 4 cell embies to put back. All seemed to go well and then that evening after I'd fallen asleep I was in a lot of pain, bloating, wind ect so seeked medical advice and turns out my body doesn't like the cyclogest so just got to rest and take pain killers.

Things seems to be moving more today and more like period pain which I've read seems to happen. Just have no idea what is right and wrong.

But my gosh the wait until you get that test result is tedious!

  • Hey love I'm in the 2ww since yesterday. Been ok so far. Haven't gone back to school yet but think I will on Friday and then I will be kept so busy I won't have time to think...I hope!

    All the aches and pains we get we will read into it so have to try not to!

    Just hope all ok and my embie is settling in. I keep talking to it lol x

  • Crazy huh that there is something potentially growing in us. Is this your first cycle? It's our first cycle. Xx

  • Yep first and hopefully the last as just hoping this works!

    I had one put back and hoping another 2 will have potential to freeze. Will know tomorrow or Thursday.

    It is scary knowing something in there and nothing can do but hope! X

  • 2WW is a killer. You go through so many emotions that makes you stronger forever. Lol. I occupied my time watching American programs on Netflix as I was off. Wishing you all the best my love. You will get through it xxx

  • Hi, dear! We know how it feels - ;) Stay strong and positive. Symptoms often differ much. When we were passing our de ivf with Biotexcom I did some research. So just thought it would be interesting to know.

    Below is a list of what happens after your transfer after IVF, day by day.

    After a 3 day transfer. Day one - the embryo continues to grow and develop, turning from a 6-8 cell embryo into a morula. Day two - the cells of the morula develop into a blastocyst. Day three - the blastocyst begins to hatch out of its shell. Day four - the blastocyst begins to attach itself to the uterus. Day five - the blastocyst begins implantation. Day six - implantation continues. Day seven - implantation is complete, the placenta and fetus have begun to develop. Day eight - hCG starts to enter the blood stream. Days nine and ten - Fetal development continues. Day eleven - levels of hCG are now high enough in your blood to detect a pregnancy. :)

    Have my fingers crossed for you! XX

  • Wow that's great to read thank you so much! That really does help understand it all πŸ˜€

  • Such a useful post thank you!!

  • Hi that's a really good post!

    Is day one the day of ET or the next day? X

  • Hey there! I'm on the same timeline as you - had 2 little embies transferred on Friday. It's so exciting and nerve-wracking all together! Actually my biggest problem right now is the progesterone injections- they're so painful πŸ™ I just keep saying it'll be worth it in the end πŸ˜€ Everything crossed for you and everyone else in the 2ww!!


  • I had 2 Day 3 Frosties transferred last Thursday. I am loving and hating this wait at the same time. If we get our BFP it's such a happy start and if it's a BFN then this is our first time of almost maybe being pregnant until we know we are not. My DH is a new man since transfer - doing chores and being the best of himself - which also breaks my heart cos I can't bear the thought of having to tell him it hasn't worked if it doesn't. I'm also really hopeful and excited but also terrified - what if it does actually work and then I have a thing growing inside me I have to give birth to and be responsible for for at least 20 years. Eeeek!
