Feeling down already ๐Ÿ˜ข

Good afternoon lovelies,

Today , I'm 6ptd5 and period like pain started yesterday slight but today is noticeable.

I feel down and no other symptoms except sore breast.

I phoned my husband and told him to not let him hope it would work. I just don't know. Any reassurance? X

Try not to get too down, period symptoms are very similar to pregnancy symptoms. I felt like I was going to have my period during the 2ww, but I got my BFP and am now 26+4.. donโ€™t give up hope x

Thanks a lot lau_har 1 for this reply which I really need now.

Did you have any other symptoms, any bleeding? Because they keep saying bleeding is a good sign which I haven't had. X

Nope, no bleeding. Everyone is different and experiences different symptoms but try not to lose hope and wait for OTD before testing. Good luck xx

I felt exactly the same as I do before I get my period in the 2ww. I was so convinced it hadn't worked that you was planning our next cycle! I had no implantation bleeding before OTD either. Wishing you all the best. X

When I got bfp after DE IVF shot I felt really down, might be the way you're feeling this now..My nurse told me later that were hormones playing in me.. I felt an emotional wreck though didn't have any reasons for that then. Swallen breasts. Headaches. Night sweats. AF like cramping starting from day 5 after ET. Pains in my left ovary (I think due to meds). And some pinkish spotting, never reddish, turning into one brown spot after a couple of hours. Don't go into panic, honey. things are going on right, i'm sure you have nothing to worry about now. We all are different. Some have all possible symptoms. Others not a single one - but get bfp. I wish I could find more facts and words to make you feel more comforted. But I really think you shouldn't get overstressed right now. Wait, honey, a bit more. I'm praying for you since now. Fingers and every bone in my body crossed xx

I'm sorry you're feeling down, I'm finding it difficult too. There is nothing we can do except wait and hope. Keeping everything crossed for you xx

I think itโ€™s hard to go off symptoms during the 2ww to be honest as they differ so much for each woman. When I was on my 2ww I read that red bleeding and cramping is bad. Which made me distraught as they were my symptoms. However, in my case it must have been implantation bleeding and cramping cause I had my bfp and now have a beautiful 4 month old boy. Xx

I have just finished my tww, I tested Monday and got a BFP! I had bad cramping, dizziness and swollen and sore breasts too so I guess it's just the embie letting you know they're in there and making a new home :) try not to worry and stay calm, enjoy the excitement

Dont give up hope yet! Period like cramps are not a period. I dont have any successful story to tell, but I do believe in the sentence "it's not over till it's over". (Unlike myself, I just started spotting in addition to the cramps).

Good luck!!!

I try not to get peopleโ€™s hopes up if I can help it but I would cautiously take this as good signs if I were you.. my bfp rounds sound like what youโ€™re experiencing now but I didnโ€™t get it on my bfn rounds. Fingers crossed for you xx
