7dp5dt: Here we go again ๐Ÿ™ˆ (Iโ€™m an idiot!)

โ€ข31 Replies

So feels like history repeating itself to my last FET earlier in the year with chemical pregnancy!

Iโ€™m at 7dp5dt and had cramping last night and brown bleeding and cramping on and off today since I woke up. Feels like exactly the way my periods start and actually Iโ€™m due them today in real life.

I have randomly had a really sore wisdom tooth for the last Few days and keen to dope up on painkillers If this transfer hasnโ€™t worked so when my eBay delivery just arrived with the pregnancy tests in it for next week I of course STUPIDLY tested ๐Ÿ™ˆ Itโ€™s like I was watching myself doing it and I couldnโ€™t stop myself!

Now Iโ€™m on the crazy testing every day rollercoaster again and hoping it doesnโ€™t fade away like last time. I will also be running to the loo every 5 seconds to see if the bleeding is heavier/red.

Please no one do this to yourself! Iโ€™m such a numpty!!!! I need locked away during the 2ww for my own good! ๐Ÿคช

Honestly I shouldnโ€™t be allowed near tests ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ™ˆ and now Iโ€™m stuck in the Crazy loop! How are you getting on? Xx

Cmc2020 in reply to Twiglet2

Yeah I am ok thanks just waiting for my period to arrive again lol xx

Wait...was your test positive ๐Ÿ˜ฑ?? I don't know if I read that wrongly or being super dumb from this heat exhaustion ๐Ÿ˜… xx

Twiglet2 in reply to LizzieBW

Yeah faint positive but far too early and Iโ€™m cramping spotting so now Iโ€™m just in the crazy worry stage as going the exact same as last time๐Ÿ™ˆ And yeah the heat ainโ€™t helping eh? ๐Ÿ˜‚ xx

LizzieBW in reply to Twiglet2

Aw yaaay and noooo. What a rollercoaster for you!! It must be impossible not to think worst case scenario from your experience with a cp but please hold onto any feeling of hope. You're pregnant! Can you contact the clinic to express your concerns about previous experience? Or did they give you extra progesterone this time as back-up? Hope you're okay! Really really hope this is your time xx

Twiglet2 in reply to LizzieBW

Thank you itโ€™s just far too early to know yet. I said to clinic before the transfer about extra progesterone or tests or anything different and they just said no same as last time. The last time I was spotting and bleeding at 7days they just said to keep taking the Same meds and test on OTD so I know there isnโ€™t much point phoning them again this time. I only have myself to blame Lizzie with my impatience! ๐Ÿ™ˆ Thank you so much for your encouragement though and you are right a bit of hope is still hope. Iโ€™m actually okay As I know there is nothing I can do but wait. Iโ€™m just mad at myself for testing ๐Ÿ˜Š xx

LizzieBW in reply to Twiglet2

Of course you've already thought of all that yourself, sorry - stupid to ask really! D'oh ๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™€๏ธ

One way to look at it, you'd still feel crazy rollercoaster emotions if you'd held off testing and now you know so that's a stronger position to be in.

Keeping everything crossed for you ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿคž๐Ÿคž xx

Twiglet2 in reply to LizzieBW

Not a stupid suggestion at all If it wasnโ€™t for advice on here I wouldnโ€™t a clue what the meds were even for ๐Ÿ˜‚ never mind know to ask the clinic anything!

Thank you so much means a lot that you are routing for us ๐Ÿค— xx

Oh Twiglet, hang in there at least it was a positive and no trigger Injection right? so Canโ€™t be that - youโ€™ve done so well , youโ€™re so very close to test day, hide the tests and do something nice. Praying with all my heart then when you do test again (on test day obviously) ๐Ÿ˜ฌ I mean it hide those tests!!! ๐Ÿ˜„ that you get a beautiful strong BFP wishing it with everyone nine in my body for you. Sending you some baby dust xxxxx

Twiglet2 in reply to Luna_79

Aww Luna thank you sooo much! Iโ€™m a poster child for what not to do ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ™Š hereโ€™s hoping the rest of the wait flies in for us both! Xx

Luna_79 in reply to Twiglet2


Good luck all fingers crossed for you. ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿคž

Thank you! ๐Ÿค— xxx

I really hope this one does stick and the spotting doesnโ€™t turn into anything worse. For now focus on a positive mindset. One thing I will say if this little one doesnโ€™t stick - brown spotting this early, especially accompanied by chemicals is a sign of low progesterone levels or that your body doesnโ€™t absorb it as well as it should. If the worst should happen and you go for another round then please please force your clinic to test for progesterone throughout your cycle and up the levels it gives you. This happened to my friend. She had about 6 or 7 cycles. She never tested early but always had spotting early and AF came before she finished her meds. Then one cycle she tested a tiny bit early and got a BFP but it quickly went. That was enough to convince her to get progesterone levels tested and she ended up on large levels of progesterone support. She had one further cycle which ended in a BFN, but had no spotting and AF came much later. The following cycle she upped the progesterone again and finally got her BFP and now has an adorable 6 month old. I truly hope this is your time and you donโ€™t need to go down this route, but please do bear it in mind.

Thank you I absolutely will bare that in mind thatโ€™s really really useful info ๐Ÿค— xxx

You're not stupid, we all do that. I am keeping everything crossed for you! Hope you can relax a bit. Xx

Twiglet2 in reply to Maisie234

Thank you so much Maisie! I am just mad at myself because I know better from last time that itโ€™s not good for me๐Ÿ˜‚ goodness me this journey takes you on a new rollercoaster every day! Xxx

Maisie234 in reply to Twiglet2

Tell me about it! You've done amaaazing to get this far, sending hugs! xx

I had cramping and light bleeding about a week after transfer for a few days and I thought it was over. However, my HCG levels are rising nicely. Hopefully it continues and you have the same. X

Twiglet2 in reply to ChloeDE

Thanks Chloe I really hope so xx

Honestly we do love to torture ourselves! I did the same at started testing at 3dp5dt!!! Since that day I've checked for blood everytime I go to the bathroom- in the first trimester I checked everytime I felt 'something' going on down there ๐Ÿ™ˆ. I still check now when I go to the toilet and I'm 31 weeks ๐Ÿ™ˆ

Twiglet2 in reply to bms12

Aww congratulations you are on the home stretch now! I just wish I didnโ€™t have the cramping and bleeding as it is the exact same as last time...it was better when I didnโ€™t know I want to fast forward time ๐Ÿ˜‚ ๐Ÿ™ˆ xx

bms12 in reply to Twiglet2

Yep I felt the same way - I'm unfortunately a pregnancy blender too ๐Ÿ™ˆ. When I'm not pregnant my body refuses to bleed- when I'm pregnant it quite enjoys itself with the excess bruising and bleeding. I've even got to have special medication when I go into labour to prevent me haemorraging. No reason for the wicked!!

Sorry youโ€™re going through this bless you. I had bleeds - some were quite big bleeds with cramping, for the first 7 weeks of pregnancy. Although my clinic didnโ€™t test my progesterone levels, they automatically upped my progesterone pessaries & whether itโ€™s coincidence or not Iโ€™m now almost 30 weeks pregnant. Please donโ€™t lose hope because you obviously can (and are) get pregnant but would definitely hassle your clinic with progesterone tests/meds. Best of luck ๐Ÿ˜Š Xx

Thank you! They have tried to call me to โ€˜check inโ€™ so when I call them back I will definitely say to them about progesterone xx

Ha ha ha twiglet, I could write this myself....just cant help myself!! Ive got my fingers crossed for you!xx

Twiglet2 in reply to Cinderella5

Thanks ๐Ÿค— I will honestly never learn ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ™ˆ xx

Oh no ๐Ÿ™ˆ Iโ€™ve had to get my BF to hide my tests as I knew Iโ€™d cave and test early if I could get my hands on them.. Iโ€™ve been thinking about it a lot the last couple of days so itโ€™s a good job they are hidden ๐Ÿ˜‚!

It absolute torture this 2ww but sending you lots of luck and fingers crossed ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿป for you Xx

Twiglet2 in reply to LeeCee15

Aww good idea! I blame eBay for delivering them early ๐Ÿ˜‚ I was holding them when the guy gave me them and been worrying about the bleeding Just before he arrived and I honestly couldnโ€™t stop myself it was like I was possessed!

Oh you are nearly there! What data have the clinic gave you to officially test on? Xx

LeeCee15 in reply to Twiglet2

Aww yea I can understand that and hopefully itโ€™ll all be fine for you.. itโ€™s horrible anyway never mind any added stress!!

I test on 18th so still feels like forever away.. in one way I really wanna test and in another way Iโ€™m too scared ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ Xx
