Anyone on the two week wait at the moment?

Hello, I’m half way through my two week wait. Last time I got my period before test date so I’m petrified it’s going to happen again. Anyone else in their two week wait and doing things to help the PMA?

Thanks amazing people xxxx

Hello, I am also half way through and driving my self a little crazy with “twinges” on the left side, I feel like it’s going to be a rather long week, fingers crossed you have amazing news 😊

It’s goes so slowly doesn’t it? I’m grumpy today and convinced myself my period is coming. Absolutely fingers crossed!! Good luck xx

It’s going so slowly I wondered if it was realistic if I started going to bed about 7 just to bring the day to an end and get onto the next one, 😂🤦🏻‍♀️, hopefully your day will improve - it’s nice to know I am not the only one who is not feeling it today x

He he, that’s a good plan. I’m worst in the mornings, I think it’s my drive to work that sets my mind ticking. So it’s not long until 5pm then that’s any other day. Bad really I’m wishing my life away but only for this two weeks x

I hope your starting this week with amazing news xx

I only had my fet last Thursday so early in the tww for me but I already feel better/more positive than last time .

I think it’s Oestrogen I’m on this time giving me pregnancy symptoms - even before fet so I know it’s not that I am preg

This is our last chance so I’m embracing the pregnancy feeling even if it’s fake atm as it might be the first and last time I feel like this!

For now I’m savouring it rather than wishing it away x

Oh gosh, I am really really hoping it works out for you. This is our second round. It’s so easy to feel everything. Lots of best wishes and good luck to you xxx

Hi hunny, also in the 2ww here, OTD is Friday, the first week seemed to go by quite quickly but it’s now starting to drag and the concentration levels have gone out of the window. Getting AF type cramping on and off but am ever hopeful that that’s the pessaries. Also boobs sore on and off so just trying not to read too much into it! When is your OTD!! Loving Lala’s idea of the early night but I’m struggling to stay awake past 8.30 anyway lol! X x

It’s next Tuesday so a while to go. I saw a friend for a cuppa tonight and that was nice. Reading into the symptoms is the worst isn’t it? I’m trying not to google but struggling. Good luck for Friday xx

Hello! I am only 6 days into my two week wait and it is going verrrry slowly! Determined to stay positive but definitely reading into every little thing. Hope your wait goes quicker than you expect and you have some nice things planned to distract you :)

Thank you, I’m day six too. I will be thinking of you on test day x

It's going very slowly but for now I'm savouring the feeling of having the little embie inside - I've never been at this stage before. Had a bit of a rough start to the wait as I forgot to take my pessaries on the day of embryo transfer until late afternoon, had horrendous cramps and bloating the next day (thought I was going to die!) and have now managed to catch my husband's horrible cold! Not an ideal week but it's all out of my control now so just trying to stay sane and hopeful! How are you finding things today? xx

Hello, sorry to hear about your rough time. I’m not too bad today just so scared my period will come, that’s what happened last time. My friend is pregnant with her second ivf baby and I was texting her today, she’s been through her own journey and is a great support. As are all the lovely people on here x

Hello, my OTD is tomorrow 😳. It has been a very slow and hard 2 weeks but going back to work this time has really helped. I hope you are all coping ok. Xxx

Reply

I agree, last time I took holiday but I think work is a bettter distraction. I am really hoping tomorrow is a great day for you xx

Hi Jenny we’re a week in too, OTD is next Monday but other then cramps from the pessaries I don’t feel anything but trying not to loose hope 😔 not helped that I picked up a really nasty water infection day after ET which means I’m on antibiotics which isn’t great. Coupled with thrush and just feeling rubbish there were tears yesterday, feeling particularly fed up. I’ve got mixed emotions about the 2ww i want to know and feel it’s a bit like waiting for Christmas but if the result isn’t what we’re desperately hoping for then it’s the loss of hope and the need to dust ourselves off to start again so I’m hanging on to this week. It’s catch 22!! Either way it’s torturous. I’m trying to keep busy but not easy especially with the constant cramping reminders. Fingers crossed everyone waiting sending baby dust to all xx

Try not to be too stressed about no symptoms, I got loads of symptoms last time and it turned out to be my period. That was a really nasty shock. It sounds like you are really suffering. The keeping busy is impossible, I’m so distracted at work as my mind is dreaming of other things. I’m the same, the thought of going through the deep sadness scares me. You are right we must be positive!!! 7 days and counting xxxx

I’m 5 days post ET. The wait is worse this time than it was last time for me! X

It’s so so tough ruby, I’m always amazed at how many of us are in the same position when it feels so isolated xx

Reply

Yeah it’s drives me crazy, I’ve done test yesterday at day 5 which was negative obviously as it’s too early so I’ll be good now and test on day 12

Yep my OTD day is next Tuesday :S Not feeling anything different to before some cramps etc but having clexane and progesterone in oil injections so can't symptom spot. Am off work but trying to keep active with walks and house chores and balancing with boxsets and the sofa! My sister had her second baby in October so she's with my mum a lot so haven't told them whats going on and to be honest after 3 failed cycles I don't really want to talk about it with many people in case its another failed one! Fingers crossed for everyone :) X
