On 2WW of 5 day blastocyst (aka 'Emby' who I love with all my heart) transferred on Saturday, xxx

I have been reading all the posts for a while and have not said anything about my journey until now. I am 44 and my partner is older than me. I had a really good first cycle, have been eating organic for 3 month, taking pregnacare conception, no alcohol, don't smoke, drinking lots of water/juice shakes etc. My cycle seemed to go really well and I had 10 follicles, 10 eggs retrieved 8 mature then had news that only this little one fertilised. No one really able to tell me why but this was something I never actually expected as of all the outcomes this was one that was never really discussed. Anyway, the little fighter kept getting bigger everyday was grade 2 and made it to blastocyst and I had a fresh transfer on Saturday. We had actually planned to have PGS due to my age. However, when you only have one it becomes all the more precious and we decided that we were not willing to risk it not making the thaw. We decided that no matter what the outcome and 'viability' this one has, we wanted to have it back and give it all of our love and hope and let it be where it belongs. I am really tired and have not had any 'spotting' but have really sore boobs although have done now since egg retrieval. I have had a bit of cramping but not so I would notice. Has anyone got any advice or words of wisdom for this time of waiting? We actually have not told anyone other than my parents about our IVF so I am really pleased to share this all with someone else who I know will understand how we are feeling right now :) xx

Same for me... last time I test early and was so disappointed with my negative I would rather still wonder if I was pregnant... I want the Tww to be over but I don't at the same time ! It's such a strange feeling xxx

Good luck & welcome to the 2WW! My advice would be to carry on as normal as much as possible...just no heavy lifting etc. Rest when you can & do something you enjoy to distract yourself xxxx

Thank you so much. It all seems to have gone so quickly but now the time stands still... How much are we really allowed to lift do you think? xxx

May be worth asking your clinic but I haven't been lifting our dyson hoover up & down the stairs & have been trying to avoid any other lifting if I can (but not always possible) xxx
