How's everyone in the 2ww doing?

I'm struggling! Haven't cracked yet, but not feeling positive at all.

My last 2 cycles I had a good idea by this point I could be pregnant, even though it's early I definitely had some signs where I thought yep definitely could be.This time nothing 😢 Or at least nothing that really makes me believe it could be positive.

On the plus side I've not caved in to test yet, don't even feel like wanting to test? I think that's more down to being scared than strength though!

I've got a blood test 2/10. Im currently 4dp5dt.

Me too, it's not I've not felt nothing because I have. Just it's nothing that's made me feel like it could be a positive symptoms if you know what I mean?

I think because my last 2 cycles I had very similar symptoms at similar times through the 2ww.

Ahhhh, it's tough! You planning to test early or you going to stick with OTD? Xxx

Going to try not to test early but I reckon I will cave next week! That's good your having a blood test, I think I would feel happier doing that but the protocol at my hospital is just to home test.

I know what you mean about the symptoms, I've had a few niggles, cramping pain but it's lessened now so who knows! Xxx

The blood test is good as you find out a little earlier but I still do a pregnancy test, I actually hate the thought of not knowing what the outcome might be and them knowing hours before me? I dunno why, just really don't like it.

I know, so many people say each time is different too so sometimes you like to think maybe lesser or different symptoms are a good things. We just never know 😩

I want this to be a quick week to know, but at the same time I'm also really scared abou finding out the outcome xxx

Aw that's nice you have something at the end of the wait, I have my Dads 70th, going to a log cabin so will be able to have a good drink if it's a negative but like you say, would happily be teetotal xxx

I feel scared too we're thinking of going to our in-laws caravan at bamburgh this weekend just to have a change of scene and distract from thinking too much about Monday's outcome. 😰😰 I'm just praying this is our time I feel like as everything went so perfectly this time that we deserve it and that it's meant to be so it'll be such a disappointment if it hasn't worked... But it will work!! Xxz

Same not really any symptoms I would associate with early pregnancy. Feeling pretty negative as the embryologist said out Frostie wasn't fully expanded which had stuck in my head and I'm feeling pretty negative I'm 5dp5dt today xx

Amanda86 you're exactly the same as me I'm 4dp5dt and have my blood test on Monday 2nd October too!! 😊 Sorry I don't know your history - did you get BFP's with your last 2 cycles then? It's good knowing people are in the same position and we can share on here! Xxx

So glad to have found this place! I've been trying to conceive for 10+ years now and it's hard doing it alone. Hoping you get your positive, I test on the 5/10 but the pain yesterday and today makes me think a negative is for sure xxx

Reply

Yeah, BFP with 2 previous cycles which both ended in chemical pregnancy. I'm 5dp today, my test is monday because they don't do blood test on Sunday at my clinic so my blood test will be 10dp5dt xxx

Hi had a chemical last time Amanda and same as you I don't have those symptoms xx

Definitely struggling. It's second time round for me & like you, have had no symptoms at all :(

I was nicely distracted by our wedding anniversary today but it also acts as a stark reminder as to how long we've been trying for this. PLLEEEEAAASSEE let it be our time!

Good luck with the rest of your 2WW xx

I’m the same, really struggling. Had loads of cramping from yesterday which feels like AF is coming. Trying to keep positive but feeling a bit emotional.

I think that maybe a different experience is possibly a good sign? I’m supposed to test on the 3/10 but only a urine test as my clinic don’t do the blood test.

Could do with a stiff drink! 😂🍷 but I won’t! Xxxx

I'm on the HRT patches protocol so I won't bleed as the hormones I'm taking keep the lining there but feels like my body wants to have a period? Who knows, I've got until the 5/10 for a home test xxx

I had AF cramping night of transfer, 2dp and last night I just had this full feeling in my stomach.

I think because my last 2 worked (although chemical) that's why I'm feeling like this time I'm definitely not? 😩 *sigh*. Thought I was doing well but I really am struggling today lol.

Usually symptoms have been bleeding gums, tender and hard boobs. Back ache. I tested from 5dp last time as I had a pretty good idea, and did get a faint positive from then. Today at 5dp I'd be certain it would be negative.

This time I've had cramping, aching legs, I had aches in my boobs randomly yesterday but it's gone now. Also, having slight headaches. Just nothing that makes me feel positive though, I've just got this gut feeling. 🙁

I'm just getting ready to meet my friend and it's going to take all my strength not to buy a test. Just feel like I went to know, but I know it's not a good idea and promised myself I wouldn't do it this time xxx

Part of me is really tempted to test a bit before but also really scared of the result!

Have a lovely afternoon with your friend and try to resist the pregnancy test aisl in the shops!

It’s still a bit too early xxx

Thanks. I'm just home. Popped into Asda to get some things before coming home and was over at the pregnancy tests 3 times 🙈 I was strong and didn't buy any but I was so tempted. I feel almost certain it hasn't worked for us this time and I think that's why I'm too scared to test anyway. Glad I stayed strong though, would only make myself more miserable getting a negative test just now 😩 Xxx

I'm only on day 2 and already googling! No symptoms at all today. Was a bit crampy and tired yesterday but nothing today. Maybe a bit tired. I guess it's still early days. Am going to do am early home test on 5/10 which is our OTD. That will be 10dp5dt - is that too late? Good luck ladies xx

I think 10dp5dt is ok to test? I’m having to wait until 11dp FET as our otd is the 3/10. Going to be going crazy by then 😜 xxx

Yeah I'm ok. Busy at work so that's good but not too bad. Still googling too much but then I'm sure I'll be doing that every day! Not too long to go for you now. Are you testing on the 3/10? Will you hold out that long? Xx

Reply

I've a blood test 2/10. Trying to hold out, this is best I've done so far. Two previous cycles I've tested from 5dp, I'm 6dp today.

I'm constantly googling too, if I read something I don't like I come off that page and check another 😂 Ahhh, sends you utterly mad eh? Lol xxx

I too am in the horrible 2ww and it’s killing me AF is due Saturday 🙈

Monday I had a drop of pink blood and v pale pink when I wiped and have had brown discharge similar to the beginning of AF but no bleeding (least not yet) I’m scared to think this could be a good thing and have had AF similar cramping on and off this week.

I am literally going insane slowly

I wish every one luck and baby dust don’t know what I’d do without some of you ladies on here. Even if it’s just to get it off my chest.

I’m too want to know. It don’t want to test for fear of the negative 🤞🏻

Good luck everyone xxxxx

It’s so horrible I don’t no how some of these ladies do it month after month, in the scheme of things we’re pretty new to the TTC pond but it’s so daunting, trying not to stress but it’s so hard

I vowed to myself I would not test early I’m planning go to stick to it unless I go completely insane

Thank you for the reply I’m wishing you so much luck xx
