Embryo no.7 now on board! Who else starts the 2ww today or this week?

Good luck to anyone else facing the 2ww right now - post below if you had your transfer today or this week! Always good to have 2ww buddies. Today was embryo number 7, my 6th transfer...2nd transfer from 3rd cycle. Finally home after so many hours stuck in the car...time to rest and hope little Pineapple is going to snuggle in tight x

Yes, the 2nd week is worse mentally than the 1st although the 1st is the time when the implantation happens!

I’m feeling very tired and sleepy all the time - probably from Utrogestan. Trying to keep positive. I hope things work out for you this time! Will be looking out for your updates xx

Oh thanks lovely for asking! Yes, I have tested this morning as I I have been freaking out since Sunday. To my shock the test is positive! 😮 I will need to test again on Thursday which is my otd and go for beta test on Friday. I hope that it’s still positive on Thursday 🤞🏻 How are you doing? When is your otd? X

Oh wow!!! That’s fantastic news! Congrats!!!!! You must feel ecstatic - keep testing and watching those lines get darker!! My OTD isn’t until Monday which is day 13 so I’m contemplating whether to test on Thursday day 9 or Saturday day 11, not day 10 though as I’m working. Keep us updated! X

Thank you 🙏🏻 I was in tears when I saw the line coming up. I’m keeping everything crossed for you. Maybe wait until day 11? I can’t believe I caved in but I was just so fed up with waiting, however didn’t want to test too early. Just praying now that everything is ok. I really hope you get your BFP too! Do you have any symptoms? X

I’m having a few cramps and twinges here and there but not lasting for long. Just short bursts. No blood. Don’t know what’s going on! What symptoms did you have, if any? I would totally be in tears too if I saw a second line, how amazing! Your partner must be ecstatic - did you do it together? X

Yes, we did it together as we both worked from home this morning and decided last night that we are going to test. He is so happy - but we are trying to be a bit cautious as it’s so early! I’ve had mild cramps and twinges (and still have). The cramps always freak me out as I associate them with af but it seems they don’t always mean it! My nipples have gone bigger and darker and this is that I clinged my hope to, the boobs are sore but the feeling is less or more intense throughout the day - not sure how many times I touched my boobs in recent days! 🙈 I also feel pretty knackered. To be honest, all the symptoms have been quite subtle and could mean anything but looking back the darker areolas have been the one symptom I would say was different to my previous cycles. My friend had the same symptom when had her first child via ivf but when she got pregnant with her 2nd (also ivf), she didn’t feel anything and had no dark areolas so it can even vary in the same person. Only test can tell really confirm what is going on so try not to read into symptoms - I know it’s nearly impossible not to but everyone’s body is so different. I will be looking out for good news from you! 🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻 X

I know what you mean. I had lots of cramps in the first week but this week seems different more like a dull ache rather than cramp. I’ve never gone through it before so no idea what to expect, had some acupuncture today which was lovely so relaxing. Just wish I could stop thinking about it for more than 2 minutes lol

I’ve not had acupuncture- but heard it’s good and relaxing - just can’t justify the cost on top of everything else but I think it’s good to go if you can, meant to help with blood flow to the uterus isn’t it? Cramps, dull ache, twinges, stabby pains...all normal and to be expected! X

Hi mae, is this your 2nd 2ww? 1st frozen? Good luck! I too am on lubion as when I’ve used pessaries I start bleeding early like only 8 days into the 2ww. When I used lubion before I didn’t bleed til later. Only thing is the longer you go without bleeding the more you get your hopes up! I’m finding the lubion very painful this time but don’t remember it being this painful before. As it’s my 6th transfer, the clinic said it may be because I might have scar tissue now from all the previous times? Your clinic should have told you that lubion doesn’t come with needles! Mine gave me a big bag of them and a sharps bin. Are you on a day 3 or day 5 transfer? When’s your test date? Mine is March 25th but there’s no way I’ll last 14 days - I’m planning to test on day 11 if my period hasn’t started by then! Xxx

Reply

Hey lovely , this is my second TWW and 1st frozen one, last time I bled early despite being on cyclogest so this time I am on 3 x cyclogest a day and 1 x Lubion injection. I had a load of needles but given to me with the buserelin for the start of the FET cycle , when I went back for a scan they loaded me up again though , at the start I didn’t no it’s the same needles for buserelin and Lubion (this I was relieved about as the needle isn’t so thick) I had a 5 day transfer , what about you? My test day is 22nd but my acupuncturist told me today I could test on weds (day 9) as I had a 5 day blast transferred , so I probably will, the wait is too much!! I haven’t had any side effects despite being on triple the dose of cyclogest, the Lubion and progynova it’s like my body just got used to it all!! I haven’t even had tender breasts, this I had last time! I have felt a few twinges and dull aches in lower stomach that is it , how about you? It’s a mind field isn’t it! And you can’t stop googling even though you know you shouldn’t !! Xx

Oh no, I didn’t realise he had left! I really liked him.. Do you know why he left? I’ve only had him with my transfers but had a lady today, think her name is Judy? She was amazing! My transfers have always been complicated and painful but she tried a different technique today and it was so much easier!

I’m on transfer number 4 so fingers crossed. My first double transfer as well. now for the long and arduous wait! 😳 Good luck to you too xx

He’s gone to work in London the nurse said. Still in fertility, following his own interests. How funny, Judy has always given me the most painful transfers! But she is lovely. The new lady seems nice too. Mark always seems nice as well. They’re all nice, but Dr R was my fave. My transfers are painful and complicated too as I had a cone biopsy. I did my first double transfer last time but dr R convinced me to go back to singles. Good luck with your 4th!!! X

He is lovely.. He gave some invaluable advice last time round and changed a few things on this protocol, it has been a success thus far so can’t fault him.. I’m gutted his left!

My uterus sits on the left so I have quite a bend, Mr R has always needed to use a tanaculum to straighten it which always results in lots of blood and pain.. Judy today was worried as she had read my notes but everything went ok! I think if this one doesn’t work I’d go back to singles too.. Here’s to hoping! 🍀🤞🏻 Xx

I test on Tuesday and will probably wait till then! I couldn’t handle the anxiety of either result before OTD!! I’m a stickler for rules!

I’m too hoping I will get past the not bleeding, FETs I manage till OTD but I think that is the progynova but my last fresh I bled on day 9.. I’m on Lubion instead tho so hopefully that helps..

I would say 9 days may be a little early? Although according to the website attached, you should be able to test at 9 days.. Maybe do Saturday tho if you have to go into work on Friday.. Every day just goes so slow so I can totally understand your want to test early! Whatever you decide, I have everything crossed! 🤞🏻🤞🏻🍀🍀
