Cramps are normals during this time as there's a lot that's changing in your body at the moment. I got a lot of cramps during my 2ww. I'm going to keep everything crossed for you.

I started testing early as I had no patience, heheheh. My first test was on day 4 which was a BFN, then I ordered the cheapie ones off the net which has 12.5 HCG sensitivity and I received them on day 6, that's when I got the second line on those, day 9 I got the second line on the frer ones too.

Hi Leanne, I am 8dp2dt and I am feeling similar to you - I have had cramps all the way through and I really felt like today it felt like the dreaded AF. I am keeping everything crossed for the both of us! Let me know how you go on test day xx

Did u were they going down ur legs I had to take paracedomal did u think it was game over ?? Congrats on ur bfp xx

I didn’t have them down my legs but I was in real pain in my abdomen. And yes I took paracetamol too it’s fine to do that. Your body is going through a lot so just try and rest up if you can. Everything crossed for you xx

And yes I was feeling utterly hopeless about it and expected to see my period whenever I went to the toilet. But by day 9 I suddenly regained a bit of hope. Try and hold off testing if you can xx

This has given me so much hope wat day of transfer we're u ?? Wen did u test i tested yesterdsy cud kick myself for it 🙈 bfn 😭 thank u so much 4 replying xx

I was in considerable pain on and off from day 5 to day 9 I think. Did you have lots of eggs collected? That can really make it all more painful. Don’t lose hope. Xx

Well it certainly sounds like it’s a strong’un! I know it’s so hard to do but try and be positive- stress (cortisol?) is really bad for your body so try and be strict with yourself on providing your little embryo with lots of good energy! Xx

I will do thank u xx

Just hope you're doing ok on the 2ww. I'm on day one! I've read that cramping badly like AF can still lead to a BFP, and you're not bleeding so try and relax xxx
