2ww ~ what is going on!


I had ET on Thursday 10th Nov and now 10 days post transfer. Since ET I have had cramping, with the past two days being most intense. My period was due on Monday 14th Nov and has still not arrived and I have had no spotting but boobs are fuller and sensitive, stomach has been bloated and just above pelvic bone very hard plus not to mention feeling so tired! Yesterday lunchtime (9daypt) I had a mad moment where I just did a test and came out negative😞. I know this was silly as it's early and well middle of the day but it just all got too much and has now left me feeling in even more of a nimbo!

My husband is really positive and wants me to wait till my official test day on the 24th but i can't help feeling it hasn't worked but then why hasn't my period arrive?

Really trying not become a crazy obsessive over this but it's super hard to think about anything else.

I had two good day 3 embryos put back (Icsi), our fertility issue is with my husband and my cycles are normal/ no issues. I am 31.

Anyone else had anything similar and later got a positive result?

Some forums say to continue testing every two days but not sure I want that pressure and might try and wait 😬

Hey hunny. It is completely normal to feel anxious because I felt the same. I tested a few days early during my first cycle and it was negative but positive on the OTD. So I will advise to hold on till then. I know it is difficult but it will be worth it in the end. Wishing you all the best for test day. Xx

Hi Rstar. All sounds perfectly normal to me. You have had lots of pulling and tugging during recent procedures, plus your ovaries might still be a bit active following all the stimulation. Make sure you drink plenty of water to help settle everything down, and if you need any pain relief, it is safe to take paracetamol, but no anti-inflammatories such as ibuprofen. Hope all soon settles down and fingers crossed for a positive result. Diane
