7dp5dt

Hello lovely ladies!

I know it’s been asked a hundred times before and it’s probably a bit annoying but I was wondering if any of you have any positive stories to get me through the next few days?! I’ve seen some old stories from googling the symptoms but there’s nothing like talking to you guys who are still riding this rollercoaster now!

I’m currently 7dp5dt and started having AF cramps, my bloating went a few days ago as well as my sore boobs (blessing in one way but feeding my self doubt too!)

So have any of you felt just like AF is coming any minute but went on to get your BFP?! I feel so sure I’m out but not due to test until Thursday and really not sure I’ll get through the next few days with any sanity in tact!!

Sending you all lots of love and strength xxx

Hi Franco. It is so hard isn't it. I had cramping and spotting from 7dp6dt until 10dp and got BPF all that week. I gave started spotting again and had terrible cramps yesterday but I think we're still in with a chance. I can't tell you more than that as I'm on bed rest at the moment hoping the spotting will stop. Good luck my friend.xx

Ah thank you so much for the reply. What day are you on now? From all my reading it sounds like spotting is so common too but it’s just such a worrying time isn’t it!

I hope it stops for you soon and you have a healthy pregnancy xx

Hi Franco

I'm 8dp5dt today, and started spotting last night. I'm having light cramping, my bloating has eased, as have the sore boobs. It's a difficult time for all of us, but I'm going to ring WFI tomorrow just for some info.

Keeping my fingers crossed for us all. xx

Awww it sounds like we’ve been feeling very similar then. This is just torture isn’t it! every feeling could be AF, BFP, BFN or just nothing!! I’m trying (and failing) to switch off and just think what will he will be! Hard when our bodies play so many tricks on us!

Let me know what they say tomorrow. Keeping everything crossed for you xxx

Ah you too, we’re nearly there! When is your test day? X

I’m Thursday too! Hoping I make it that far as I’m having AF could arrive type symptoms too

Hi Franco, I'm 6dp5dt from an fet and it's my 3rd ivf round and each time has been different. Weirdly enough this time I am taking much more drugs (pio, crinone, estro patches & pills) but feeling less symptoms...it's so nerve wracking! I've read quite a few success stories here of ladies who bleed and still get a bfp... I don't think we can trust any of the signs - which doesn't help us if course 😂

Hang in there, we're all in this together ;)

Xx

Ah thank you, it really is a minefield isn’t it! I’m trying not to guess what’s going on but it’s so hard!

Good luck and fingers crossed you get your positive result this time xx

Just wanted to say that I am in the exact same situation! It’s so hard. I know rationally that the cramps and spotting don’t tell you anything but scared to get my hopes up as well! It’s been nice to hear that it’s not just me.

Lots of luck to you all. X

Ah it does really help knowing we’re not alone in our madness doesn’t it! I think all rational thoughts have gone out the window the last few days!

Fingers crossed for us all and that this will all be worth it in the end xx

Oh no, sorry to hear you’re not feeling good. Sometimes we just need to do whatever we can to get through and look after ourselves.

Sending you good luck and strength xx

Hi Franco, I called the clinic, and they said that as the spotting is bang in the middle of the egg transfer and test day, it’s difficult to predict what it could mean. However to keep taking my cyclogest until I take the test. If it’s negative then I stop taking the pessary and ring them on the Monday when they are open.

Not really anything we didn’t already know.

How are you feeling today? X

Ah I guess it’s impossible to have any answers at this stage, we just need to hold tight! So hard though.

I’m not feeling anything at all today! Literally nothing! But I’m not as sad which is a definite improvement! Are you feeling ok? X
