Hang on in there, you're doing great. It's an eternity but you're getting there and staying off google is no easy feat! Lol xx

Thank you!! Xx

Haha, I’m the same - I literally googled ‘can you trump out an embryo’ the other day as these pessaries make me so bloated and windy I was worried about the straining! TMI, apologies! 🙈

I’ve only had sore boobs so far but pretty sure that’s just the progesterone...

I am exactly the same!! Bad belly the lot! I was terrified to go to the loo first time incase it fell out 😂 I have the sore boobs and pains in my tummy but again could be progesterone xx

Hi there. Just read your post. Nice to be able to chat to people in same situation. Me too. I got a slight pain in my groin. Have you ever heard about that. These are the longest two weeks ever. Sending baby dust to you all. How many did you transfer and on what day?

It is great to have others going through it too! I haven’t heard about groin pain but I’ve got a few pains. Thank you sending baby dust to you too! I had ICSI on Friday 10th November and had 1 day 5 BC transferred on weds 15th November. What about you? X

Ohhh exciting as not long for you to go now before you can test. I only had 1 good embryo left after 6 were taken so we decided to transfer day 4 instead of waiting till Sat 5 so transferred last Friday. Hope the 1 day hasn't made a difference but didn't wanna take any chances. Great you are feeling a few pains. Thats usually a good sign. Xxx where are you based?

1 week today I can test!! Literally the longest week of my life haha!! That’s brilliant though! We were given the option for a day 4 transfer. I’m sure it will all be ok for you! They say they are better in the body! I hope the pains are good news! I’m based in south West Wales, what about you? Xx

Me too. Got everything crossed for you. Sending positive thoughts. Here we can use the social system for 3 tries which is amazing. Really lucky. This is my first. Hope won't need another one. And you?

Oh that’s brilliant!! I can have 3 rounds of IUI and 2 rounds of IVF on the NHS. I’ve had 1 round of IUI that failed and this is my first round of IVF so fingers crossed for us both that we don’t need anymore xx

Fingers crossed for us both! Sending lots of positive thoughts xx

I’m also in the 2ww hell. My test date is Monday!

My clinic makes us wait for 16 days. Not sure why

I’ve had/having stomach cramps, mood swings, bloated tummy and tiredness. Just wished I’d made a note of how I felt last time. I’ve googled everything which is silly seeing as this is my 5th go but 1st after my first successful go. Which means the tiredness could be totally down to my 15 month old

Good luck girls xx

Glad to hear that you got your happy result with your first!! Fingers crossed for you this time. Sending lots of positive thoughts xx

Surprisingly enough not stressed at all! My testing day is not until the 02/12. Done all I could... to be honest, don’t want to get my hopes up in case it ends up in another miscarriage... one day at the time!🤞

Hi there, that is a great attitude to have and think I will take a leaf from your book, you are 100% correct, there is nothing we can do now, we have done our bit. I guess just eat healthily and relax now right. As you say... one day at a time :)

Hi there, great! Well I am sure it will be worth the wait as all those signs seem positive, I guess they want to wait 16 days to be extra sure, mine said between 15 and 20 days to wait. That is great that your last cycle worked and sending positive vibes that this one works too! :)

Thank you. You just never know. I remember last time feeling so hopeless, it was New Year’s Eve and I was so upset, devastated as I just knew it hadn’t worked but two days later I got the new result we all dream of.

Thank you and sending you positive thoughts your way too x

Oh wow. That's amazing. Did you have to do 2 tests? Thanks so much for positive vibes. Xx

I tested on the 2nd January as instructed and then sent my husband out for more tests as I just couldn’t believe it!

Ahhhh ha ha ha, why were you so sure it had not worked? Wow, so you never know then. :)

Bobenhams3 in reply to kglass

Because I just couldn’t believe that I was going to be one of the lucky ones. I’ve been the same this time, convinced that it hasn’t work, blaming the stomach cramps, bloated stomach and sickness on my period coming

I feel your pain ! In same position it's tough ! Keep positive xx

Thanks and to you! When is your test date? X

My test is due 30th November 😳

Ohhh I’m 29th!!!! Fingers crossed for us both! Xx

Hello. How are you feeling now? Not too long to go for you now. Are you going to do a hpt early response one before or wait till the blood test? I just bought one. Don't think can wait till Fri as prefer to be prepared either way, before go for blood test.

MrsR1988 profile image
MrsR1988 in reply to kglass

I’m ok, still getting quite a few cramps and pains so hoping that is a good sign. I haven’t been told I need a blood test so I’ll just be using a clear blue home pregnancy stick on the day to test xx

kglass in reply to MrsR1988

Oh great. Cramps sound good. Good news. I bought the same one. Clear blue. They seem to be very good. Ok fingers crossed. Keep us posted. Xxx

Hello. How are you doing? Xxx

MrsR1988 in reply to kglass

I am ok thanks, I’ve been feeling slightly nauseous. Been off my food a little bit just trying to eat when I can. Still get cramping and a few pains but hoping this is all normal

How are you? Xx

It was an agonising wait. But the two days leading up to my due pregnancy test on Wednesday were even more agonising and my emotions were all over the place and I kept thinking that it had failed but it turns out that it was positive xx

MrsR1988 profile image
MrsR1988 in reply to Tezzabell86

That’s exactly how I am! I’m not due to test till next Wednesday, it feels like the days are going so slow! Congratulations on your good news!! X

Tezzabell86 in reply to MrsR1988

Thank you. The last two days were the worst xx

My OTD is next Saturday. Looking forward to getting to that point after coming so far. This is my first IVF. I’m not going to test early as I don’t want to get a false positive as that would really mess with my emotions so am going to be good and hold out!

I’m finding I’m so bloated, sore boobs with back ache. Is anyone taking paracetamol? I don’t want to take any in case it causes a problem but just wondered if anyone else was taking anything? Baby dust to everyone. 🙏🍀✨ xx

MrsR1988 in reply to Peppy26

Good luck for next Saturday!! It’s my first round too! No I completely agree, I’m not testing early although it’s killing me waiting!! I feel quite heavy and sore boobs too. Little bit of back ache and some cramps. I’ve not taken any paracetamol for the pain, I didn’t want to incase something happened. Sending baby dust to you too xx

vansoire in reply to Peppy26

I’m the same OTD as you!! I’ve got similar symptoms too - big sore boobs, very windy & back ache but no cramps. I’m not taking anything but it does seem to be affecting my sleep, which is making the wait that much worse!

I’m desperately trying to hold out til next week - it’s hard! 😕🤞
