Too scared to test!!!

Hi all, I’m on attempt no.2 at ICSI at Guys Hospital in London. This round has been a complete rollercoaster of emotions and happened so quickly!

My OTD is Friday 22nd June and I’m too scared to do the test in case it is negative! It’s stopping me sleeping I just can’t stop worrying!

I do have a lot of early pg symptoms; tugging/pulling on one side, extreme tiredness/mood swings and the worst bloating/wind imaginable!! All of which can also be down to the Utrogestan pessaries too.

Totally freaking out as can’t face another negative result 😥😥

Help!!!

This anxiety is totally natural and I fully empathise. Waiting is the hardest part, just in general! I feel like I’ve spent years waiting & yet I’m still no more patient 😂

Your signs are really encouraging, so you can take comfort in that. Perhaps plan your days in the run up to Friday, so that you are fully occupied. Plan a set time to get up, get yourself together and go on a nice walk before work. Plan a lunch date, visit some friends in the evening. If you are like me, you will appreciate the distraction.

I have my fingers crossed for you for Friday 🤞🤞 xx

I was too scared too, I'd convinced myself I'd wait until a few days after OTD but in the end I could wait until the next day. I was of the mind set that if it's bad news I'd rather not know but it was all I could think about, I was dreaming about it. I'd say hold off as long as you can but if it's driving you crazy just bite the bullet. Good luck, maybe have a contingency plan for either result. Xxx

I know the TWW is terrible and then the disappointment it leads to, the heartbreak. I can feel it. Hope you get lucky this time around. Whats the update? Did you get the positive?

Did you suffer any period type cramps during the 2ww? I did but nothing too bad and it was between days 3-6 then now and then but nothing to really notice. I’m so scared as this is second time for us after a CP first go. I’m too frightened to buy any HPT
