  • Congratulations hun so happy for you!!! I am currently 4 days past my 3 day transfer. Did you get any symptoms? I feel like it's not working x

  • I didn't feel anything apart from sore boobs at first. Bit of cramping mid way but convinced myself it was in my head then got some brown discharge at 8dp3dt which stopped after a morning. I dont think you can tell either way. The wait is awful but try not to test early if the hospital could tell before the otd they would xx

  • It's true!! I'm getting like ovulation pain I don't know if that's normal. It's on my right ovaryy. I guess I will just have to wait x

  • Congratulations! Fab news! November really does seem to be the lucky month lots of bfps compared to last month x

  • Thanks! Cant help but feel for those that had their negatives though its all down tp a bit of luck.... xx

  • Great news!! Congrats!

    It looks impressive in numbers. Wish you luck xx

  • Thanks i know! I worked it out last night... crazy what we do to get pregnant xx

  • Congratulations πŸŽ‰Great to hear about another positive, my OTD is next week so I soooo hope I'm adding to that πŸ™πŸ» Xx

  • Congratulations xx

  • Congratulations to you!! What an awesome way to announce it!! I wish you all the best through your pregnancy xxx

  • Awesome news.... very creative way of announcing your BFP!

  • So madly happy for you, hun!! This is really a life long journey. We had less of these numbers. And for the most part because we booked all inclusive package. It saved time and our savings definitely. (We passed ivf with donor egg, 2 fresh shots, 2 5-day embies transferred each time).

    But all the numbers worth that very BFP. I wish you all the best :)

  • and a lot of patience! you forgot ;)

    PS congratulations! you are amazing too, just having been through all of those isn’t what everyone can endure and still post about it on the internet, casually saying oh I’ve been through tons and tons of injections and pills but whatever I've got myself a BFP!! and you are right, this is the most rewarding thing out of all that can happen to a woman!

    i am just gathering forces to contact the clinic, I am not that brave and strong mentally and physically as you are though haha

  • You'll surprise yourself- honestly if someone told me those numbers before i started id have a fit but just take it one step at a time x

  • yes, one step at a time!! this is the best idea when it comes to fertility treatment.

    i have contacted the clinic and even had a formal start of my stimulation haha, my egg donor is on her way to be stimulated, for now I am only regulating my cycle and waiting for the day when the actual scary stimulation begins.


  • Thanks everyone just trying to stay off to internet a bit until 7week scan - i will do myself no good googling everything I feel or dont feel until then! Good luck to all you lovely ladies xx
