Hi ladies,

I had my transfer on Tues and also feeling similar, very aware of feeling like my period is coming and twinges in the left side of my body. I know i am over analysing everything and should try and forget about it and keep busy but it is so difficult! The last 3 mornings I have been lying on my back during night and when turn over when i wake up i have felt a really sharp pain in my abdomen. I think all of what I am feeling is prob from the progesterone though. Is funny as although can't wait until I test, I don't want to test as know the dream and the hopes from all of these feelings is over if negative. What a journey this is!!

Wishing you a positive result!!

Hey 👋 Your ovaries are probably still a little active from EC hence the ovary pain. Are you on progesterone? That can cause cramping and bloating. Hang in there... xx

Try not to worry all these symptoms can be the sign of a successful transfer. My advice is do NOT Google your symptoms and do NOT test early as this just adds to the stress. I am wishing you all the very best for that BFP xx

Seem to be getting more cramps this morning. Trying to ignore it, but it's hard. I reall6 truly hope that it's just implantation pain. Have tried to call hospital about my progesterone levels this morning, but have had no reply and left a voicemail. Feeling a bit anxious now x

Hey 2018hopeful. I’m in the exact same boat as you. Got my transfer last Tuesday. And I feeling exactly what you are...light cramping that feel like period pains. I’m hoping it’s the progesterone or some sort of implantion going on. I guess all we can do is try our best to stay positive, in one way I can’t wait to test next wk and then on the other hand I’m dreading to test Incase it’s not the result I want.

What a journey, hopefully we will both be blessed with bfp ❤️❤️❤️

My clinic have booked me in for blood test on Monday the 27th. They said I can do a home test one the day before. So I guess I will have a good idea Sunday next wk... eek!! Let’s keep each other updated on our symptoms. My boobs are a little tender too are you the same and I’m really tired 💤 Just had an hr nap

The progesterone pessaries give symptoms like sore breasts/ nausea and that. They warned me they would give me "pregnancy" symptoms. Today has been tough, very emotional. The nurse from the clinic called me this afternoon and advised I take 3 pessaries a day over weekend as my progesterone blood tests are still not back from yesterday, she said it would be a precaution. Good luck with a week Sunday x x

Hi are you nhs or Private? I had a fresh cycle on nhs that failed and they said they won’t check my progesterone levels, due to do FET tomorrow and worried, I’m already taking 3 progesterone pessaries per day and I did with fresh cycle too. Grateful for any advice - good luck with your treatment x

I'm nhs in Wales, my clinic says they routinely check progesterone levels 1 weeks after starting the pessaries. I was started on 2 daily. Not sure what the maximum is that you can take. Good luck with your transfer tomorrow! Relax and take time to put your feet up at home x x

Thank you for replying, the clinics all seem so different don’t they? Mine flatly refuses to test my progesterone again after initial tests before treatment started which is over a year and a half now ..

Good luck for 29th and 27th guys xx
