6days after embryo transfer


Hi all,

On day 5 I woke up in the middle of the night with period like cramps I still have them. Feel as though aunt flow is in the way. Feel deflated and chucked all hope out the window. Really thought it was going to work. Anybody else had similar symptoms xxx

Me a bit . I could never decide whether I was a bit constipated or if it was real cramps plus crinone can give cramps too. I had one early morning cramp thing that woke me then it subsided. I had cramps in day 3

Then again at 7,8,9,10. And that’s as far as I’ve got. It’s so hard to know. On my failed FET my Aunt Flo cramps didn’t have as many spaces between them if that makes sense. I seem to have more cramps late afternoon and then evening .

Cramps are so crap because they could be anything. It’s still early days . Keep your chin up,

You won’t know until test day so best to try and stay as calm as you can and distract your brain with movies or walks or whatever makes you feel good 😘💐💐🙏🏻🙏🏻💐🙏🏻😘😘💓💓💓💓💖💖💖🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻

Hugs of understanding 😘 5 days done! You can do this 😘😘😘💐💐💐💐💖💖💖💖💖💖

Thank you Rhinocat 💛💛💛💛💛

Are you in a cycle at the moment ?

I want to cry my heart out right now xxx

RhinoCat in reply to Faith212

I’m on 10dp5dt and got a + this morning . Early days so I don’t even feel happy about it yet. Love and hugs 🤗

Have a good cry and let some tension out then go make a cup of decaf tea and watch friends or something stupid / familiar and easy to watch. There’s not one thing you can do to change the outcome but staying calm and relaxed is the best way to ride this rollercoaster 🎢.

You are on it now!

Keep going!

You’ve got this 😘💐

You got a positive that’s made me smile for you 💛💛

Thank you for your kind words.

Just sitting lying down on the sofa waiting for af :/

I am taking Utrogestan and cyclogest could be that xxx

I’m 8dpt and felt like AF was coming even before the transfer, with occasional cramps. I’m sure it is these drugs. All we can do is wait and see and keep our fingers crossed 🤞 sending hugs 🤗

Thank you Daffodils it’s torture.

Good luck. How are you feeling ? X

Daffodils1 in reply to Faith212

Similar to you, rollercoaster of up and down, hopeful to convinced it’s a failure. I’m meant to test on day 16, not sure I will be able wait that long as others seem to have an OTD of 10 days or just beyond.

Faith212 in reply to Daffodils1

Why 16 days ? That does seem long both time’s for us it has Been on day 12 day’s. Have my fingers crossed for you xxx

Hi lovely, I am 2dp5dt and I have the same feeling. I have had it from this afternoon the feeling Af is on its way. It almost like a dull feeling Over my tummy but we are not out by any means! I know I shouldn’t but I have been in google overdrive today😂 but it just shows what everyone says on here that we don’t know until the the actual test as the same symptoms can mean a different things for every woman. I know it’s hard but try and believe. I hope after a good sleep tomorrow will be seeming brighter. Here if you need to chat xxx

Hey Jonesy I think I have also read every article online also. What are we like !!

I hope it has worked I’m trying to keep my mind off it but am going a little crazy.

2 days in is most probably your tummy settling from all those foreign objects put inside us xx

Jonesy84 in reply to Faith212

Haha I can believe it well as much as work has drove me potty today I had no time to do my google research 😂😂

I woke up this morning and NO symptoms. That feeling has gone that I had yesterday so i have decided to put the stressing in a box and put it to the back of my mind 😂

I have also decided that i am going to have a McDonalds as not had one in ages and me and hubby can go for a drive tomorrow and have a little picnic in the car as we know a good spot with some lovely views.

Have you got any plans for the weekend xx

Faith212 in reply to Jonesy84

Your weekend sounds amazing I'm craving Macdonald chips. How was the picnic and most importantly how are you feeling? X

Hi, I'm sorry you feel so rubbish. I can relate. I am 9 days past DE FET. I had cramps after the transfer, and prob on and off from day 5. Now I feel pretty much tender all of the time. I'm very bloated and my breasts are really AF sore. I woke up really early today and have felt exceptionally tired and emotional all day. Reading the progesterone pessaries leaflet, I think I'm being really hit by the side effects. I started sobbing as soon as my husband came home from work today. I told him I didn't think it had worked. He has a knack of hearing the opposite to what I actually say, and he thought I'd said it worked, and he sounded so excited - which made me sob more. I wasn't expecting it to work. I just want to get to Monday to test and get it over with. I know people say you can never tell, but I'm really not feeling positive. Sorry I've got nothing to cheer you up. We just need to hang in there. Hopefully someone with more experience can offer us some advice. Xxx

Omg i feel the same its awful im day 5 post transfer and feel like my period is coming and crampy and emotional as f im so scared hope period doesnt come i just want my big fat positive. Hope u too are preg and keep hopeful!

It’s a good sign! Don’t feel anxious. Stay balanced and think of good things to happen. Fingers crossed and prayers for you. 🤞🙏

Aww giant panda I am sorry to hear your going through so much those pessaries are like little devils. I hope it is all the side effects from that for you and on test day you get a BFP :) I hope you ha e an easier day today. Let us know how you get on xxx

Thankyou Faith. Day 11 now and my cramps have eased off, just like they do a couple of days before AF. My chest is still killing though - I had to do a return car journey this morning with miles of speed bumps - it nearly finished me off! How are you doing? Are you keeping your chin up? I hope you've found something lovely to distract yourself with. xx

Hey Giantpanda how are you? How are the cramps? I hope your feeling better. My cramps are still there but it really seems like it could be cyclogest side effects. Apparently, it is very common xx
