2ww'ers!

How are all my 2ww'ers doing? Where abouts are you in the wait, what cycle, any symptoms?

I'm 5dp5dt on our 3rd cycle first frozen - natural frozen cycle.

I'm doing good now and no longer worrying I'm doing things that could make it not work. Today I've just been binge watching Netflix in bed as I've been doing photoshoots this weekend and have some editing to do later.

Trying not to symptom spot but as my cycle is a natural one with no meds at all when I feel things I know it's not any meds. Have been having lots of lower back pain on and off the last few days and getting quite a few sharp pains low down and around my ovaries so hoping it's a good sign but also not getting over excited either. Test day is Saturday and it can't come soon enough!

Hi, it’s nice to hear tour update and I wish you lots of luck for Saturday. Will you test yourself or wait for the blood test?

I am in my 2WW, 8dpt3d. I had two embies put back in. It’s my first cycle. I have been a bag nerves! Googling every symptom, so doing what I shouldn’t do! Haha

I have had the long protocol so can’t decide if my pains and cramps are the drugs or something happening. They eased over the wkend and then came back even worse today. I thought maybe I’d have a bleed the pain was so bad. But I haven’t even had a spotting.

My test day is Thursday 🤞🏻🤞🏻 it’s going to be a long week. Hope your time goes quicker Hun.

My clinic don't do blood tests so I just do a pregnancy test at home Saturday morning.

Oh I know what you mean, we shouldn't google but it's impossible not to sometimes!

Best of luck for Thursday, keep us updated xxx

I’m a nervous first time poster on here but your story is just so similar to mine it felt right to share. I hope it is ok to join in the conversation? Do tell me if I do anything wrong?

I am now 7dp 5dt on a natural FET. It is our first FET after IVF in November and a fresh transfer. We lost a very early pregnancy with that one - we think due to an infection - but who really knows?

I was exactly the same worrying about doing anything wrong. Was the shower too hot? Should I have the mild Thai curry etc?

I didn’t have any leave left so am back at work since the day after.

Our official test date is also Thursday like Gemmy. But we naughtily tested last night and got a faint but clear BFP 6dp 5dt. So tentatively excited but also petrified we will lose it again. We have had another miscarriage during stimulated IUI a couple of years ago. Nothing has stuck past 5 wks 6 days.

Feels so different without any meds I would say. Lots of cramping for a few days after transfer starting the day after. Started getting heartburn two nights ago which has meant a couple of sleepless nights. Lower back pain. Nice to be able to believe the symptoms a bit more.

Hoping for the best for everyone. Sending positive vibes.

Thanks Gemmy. I feel lucky to have got this far. It will be our last chance for a while so lots of hopes attached.

Good luck to you too on Thursday. Still feels like an age away at the moment, doesn’t it?! X

Oh Beakerjk thank you for sharing!! Your symptoms are all the same as mine except the heartburn so I'm hoping I get my bfp too! Tentative congratulations an here's hoping for that bubba to stick for the long run.

Our stories are very similar - my first round I got a bfp but at our 7 week scan they told me I'd had a missed miscarriage it was truly awful. We then had a failed round but that gave us two embryos to freeze so here we are with our first Frostie.

Fingers and toes crossed for you xxx

Hiya Waitingforourmiracle.

Our stories really are similar! I really hope you get your bfp too and that it sticks for the long run too.

I am sorry for your loss. It is such an awful thing to go through.

These are our first frosties as well.

I’m guessing I’m older than you (39) as we put back both embryos. So that will be it for us for a good while if we aren’t successful.

Everything crossed for you. Xxx

I had no symptoms on my first cycle lovely and I got pregnant, sadly I lost it but the lack of symptoms doesn't mean you aren't pregnant, best of luck for Friday xx

Sorry for your loss 💜 it’s nice to know not everyone has symptoms and still get a positive gives me little more hope 😊 xx

Thank you.

The morning of my otd date I didn't even want to get out of bed as I was certain it was going to be negative so stayed in bed as long as possible. Then tested and was shocked to see it was positive.

Haha I’m here with you darling! My first ivf/icsi. It’s been 5 days now of waiting. On the 5 of March is my test day. Sore breast , ovarian cramp and thirsty. I had a fresh cycle. 50% change to get pregnant 4AB. Is that ok to have ovarian pain? Is not bad, it’s just the feeling OMG is my period coming? Good luck 👍🏻🍀

Hi 👋 I’m 3dp 5dt on my 4th transfer. I don’t think I’ve had any symptoms yet, too early either way but I have had the odd twinge and cramp but I had some before transfer so.. Not obsessing too much yet but I’m sure I will obsess a little bit more everyday xx

Ha ha I know that feeling, I swore I wouldn't symptom spot but each day I think about each thing a little more. Especially not being on meds this time it makes me notice them more as potential pregnancy symptoms

I’m 5dp5dt too from a fresh cycle. Having lots of cute cramps, sore boobs, tired but all of those can mirror cyclogest! I am so tempted to test tomorrow but I am trying to hold out, it’s so hard isn’t it! Xxx

It's so hard to wait but it's worth it so you aren't then worrying if the result is correct. Best of luck xx

I’m 4dp5dt from my second frozen cycle. Had a few sharp pains and a few instances of a dull ache. Have also woken up very early the last couple of nights and not been able to go back to sleep. I know it is progesterone related but take it as a good sign as I had insomnia all the way through my first pregnancy (from fresh cycle) but didn’t have it on my first FET when I had a CP.

Best of luck, sounding positive so far xx

Aww I’m so glad to hear You’ve been taking some time to relax, I hope Saturday comes around quickly for you, got everything crossed xxxxxx

I’m at roughly the same stage on a natural cycle (no ivf or ivm) and have been experiencing the same feelings. No idea if it means anything - I’m hoping for the best. I’ve had achy ovaries and aching lower down on and off and when I was pregnant with my son I thought my period was on its way - this feels similar. Don’t want to get my hopes up if it fails my next step is ivf xx

Currently in my tww, has my iui yesterday and test day is the 13/3! Don’t normally get to test tho as af shows up before it-which isn’t always a bad thing, saves me getting my hopes up. Some cramping but no where near as bad as my last iui! xx
