I had my blastocysts transfer on 30.1 and i am now on the 3rd day of my 2ww. Anyone else who is also on the same boat this week??
Anyone else on their 2ww February 2? - Fertility Network UK

Yep me too, had 2 transferred on 30th!
Any symptoms? I dont feel anything apart from some light cramping which could be because of meds
Yes about the same, not much really. Nor symptom spotting as I've done it before and got my hopes up xx
I had one transferred on the 28th (Natural FET). How are you feeling? I'm desperatly looking out for symptoms - I've had very very mild cramps, tingles more like, but that's it really. Hope the 2ww isn't too painful for you - I'm so impaitent!! My OTD is Monday (although my period is due on Saturday and I'm normally like clockwork, so planning to test Friday..) x
It's almost like I've written that post! I had one transferred on 28th as well but it was frozen transfer. I had slight cramping on Saturday, Sunday and Monday but nothing now. Can't detect any other symptoms which is making me so anxious. My OTD is on Monday as well and my usually clock work period should start on Saturday 6th.
The only other thing I've noticed is that I've cried every day since Saturday for no apparent reason.. and i'm not the one who usually cries. But then again, I'm so overwhelmed with this last bit of waiting game as it's our first and last try.
Hope we all get positives! I have had some vety light cramping but nothing else.. no sore boobs no nothing...
I keep squeezing my boobs to see if I feel anything - and nothing. I know so many don't get symptoms, so trying not to read into it too much. The wait is excruciating.
Same! Keep squeezing my boobs but nothing yet. Hoping I’ll wake up tomorrow with sore breasts but unlikely!! I think the worst bit is that we’re due this weekend prior to OTD.. thank god I’m working all weekend lol.
How are you EmyTW and Sandykou feeling? Xx
Hi Hannakallas, I'm doing OK - I caved and tested (I'm the most impaitent person 😬). How are you feeling? X
I had mine transfer done on 30th too. Same symptoms like yours. Light cramping only. But on the 31st I had a bad back ache.. really bad.. like pre periods pain. Since then.. just feel a bit heavy on the abdo with very mild cramps. I think probably, it is due to the hormones we have to take.. We're all in this together then!!
Oh yes i had the back ache too but it could be because i was in bed all day! Fingers crossed! Will you do a home pregnancy test before or wait for the blood test?
I was not in bed that day but still had back ache too. And gaining all the knowledge from Mr. Google, I've realised one thing that the earliest we should test is on the 9th day after your transfer so I may be or may be not.. Just trying to get busy myself working but even while working if I don't get any symptoms, it worries again. Going to the toilet 20 times a day to look out for spotting (if any). Its really crazy!!
I had 2 blastocysts transferred on 27.1 and and test day is 5.2. This waiting lark is a killer ..... x
I will try and not test at home . I did last time and was so upset when it was negative.
Me! I had two embryos transferred on 30th January so still a long way to go. I want to do a pregnancy test so bad but know it’s pointless.
I know i promised.my husband i wont do a test and it is hard!!
I waited until the right date last time but knew it would be negative as I had full period level bleeding for a few days before. We’ve agreed I can do one a bit earlier this time.
I did a test in my first IVF snd it was negative and two days later my beta was 380 (but ended in m/c). So this time round i am prepared!
How are you? Any symptoms? I only get period like pains from time to time
I’ve had some sharp twinges almost like I’ve pulled a muscle in my abs or something and then other times it feels a bit more achy but nothing major. I think it’s been worse the last day or two but it’s difficult to tell if I’m just being a bit paranoid/hyper-aware! The positive is I think I had some spotting at this point last cycle which was obviously a BFN and I haven’t had that this time.
It’s so frustrating when the symptoms for pregnancy, periods and progesterone all seem to overlap with each other so you don’t know whether to worry or not.
I think I’m going to do a test on Sunday which will be day 9. What day are you up to now?
I am day 6 now and bought a test to do tomorrow. Not sure if it will show anything but i cant help it!
Hi. I’m in my TWW too. So many of us. Hope we all get good news 🤞. Its my first FET done on 26th jan. test day is monday 8th feb. Same as most of u with rarely any symptoms. Just some cramping first couple days. Its starting to play on my mind quite abit of not knowing if im pregnant or not now. Just going to try and keep myself extra busy next couple days with activities to pass the days quicker. How are you coping so far?
I am reading and watching Netflix comedies. Anything really to distract myself lol
So glad to see there’s a little group of us with same dates etc!
It really is. I felt quite alone this week and kept thinking i was bugging my husband with constantly saying how i dnt have symptoms bt its good to know most of us are in same boat, so hopefully dsnt mean a bad thing
I had my fresh transfer on the 31st, this is my second round the first one was a BFN. Trying not to let any symptom consume me this round but it’s so hard 😩 I'm trying to keep occupied, currently sucked into Married at First sight 😂
Sending lots of positive thoughts, through this 2WW
My guilty pleasure is married at first sight Australia...... so much drama !!! Lol
Me too - I had my FET on 26th, with 2 frosties. The wait is so painful, but I am also dreading test day as it's all or nothing from that point onwards! My OTD is Thursday - testing at home as my clinic doesn't do bloods. No symptoms really, some light cramping, so desperate to have sore boobs etc.! Although from my previous pregnancies (which all sadly ended in M/C) I didn't get any symptoms until week 6. Fingers crossed for us all!! xx
Good morning ladies. 4th day today and I woke up and still no symptoms.. I pray for a sign, i hate feeling normal!!
Me and my wife done reciprocal IVF and transferred 1 fresh blast on 30th too My wife is the carrier.
This is our 2nd cycle and the second time ive been so impatient but we are trying to hold off as long as possible before testing. Does anyone test before the Beta to be somewhat prepared?
🤞🏼Good luck to you all on the 2 week wait, it’s so hard but feet up when you can and definitely binge watch MAFSA - it’s soo good!
My transfer was the 23rd Jan so a week earlier. The first week I was cramping and very bloated with some sore boobs. Then a week after transfer, I had backache similar to AF symptoms. Then nine days after transfer I woke up with no symptoms. Wasn't even bloated anymore and felt like I had lost some weight as my tummy was quite flat. I really want to test but what's stopping me is if its negative and having to go to work afterwards. My OTD is conveniently this Saturday 6th Feb so if I get a negative I'll have all weekend to cry it out. Such a hard journey! Hope we all get our BFP soon! X
Aww. Im hoping you get good news on Saturday and instead u can spend the weekend celebrating ☺️
Me too! It's getting hard to stay positive these last days 😢 but planning what to do if its bfn is making me feel like I've got some control over the situation.
I had 2 transferred on Monday 1st. It's our first cycle and I've no idea what to expect. Felt uncomfortable Monday Eve and a few little cramps yesterday but woke up this morning feeling less bloated, boobs not as sore and basically better than I've felt since before the injections. No idea if that's good or bad, just got to get to the 12th as that's my test date.
I had my transfer yesterday (2nd feb). Good luck to everyone in 2ww or who is testing next few days xxx
Same here, transferred one embryo yesterday. When is your otd? Mine is 16th which feels like forever. At my last clinic it was 9 days, now it’s 14 at new clinic. Anyone watching any good box sets for distraction? Xxx
I also transferred one. My otd is 13th so 11 days. I'm looking to watch some good tv too to keep my mind off things! I'm off work until Monday xx
Ooooh I might just do it same day as you!
Did you have a 5 day transfer with a blastocyst? Xx
my clinic also 9 days past... may i know why your new clinic 14 day’s? im nervous if 9 days still not picked up and might get picked up around day 11 or 14...
I am so tempted to test early I’ve become obsessed with finding ways to justify it. My test date should be 12th Feb but my period would normally be due around 8th Feb and then you get those tests that you can use before your period due date. You can see where I’m going with this....
Fortunately I’ve only got normal pregnancy tests in the house and not early ones so can’t give in yet but highly considering doing a test at the weekend. I’m so impatient!!
I dont blame you. And same with me using any excuse. Every night i go to sleep saying im doing a test tmrw. Then in morning quickly go for a wee without a test so im not tempted! 🥴. I have the clearblue 5day early test which as u can imagine makes it even more tempting. Lets try and stay strong. Even if its for a couple more days.
Hello ladies! I’m also on my 2ww, had a frozen transfer yesterday (5 day blastocyst) so a little bit behind you guys! I’ve been experiencing light cramps too but not sure if it is down to the medication or if the embryo is trying to implant? So soon after a day? It’s so great to know that I’m not the only one going though this! ☺️
I had my transfer lately and have been having very light twinges I would say rather than cramps. I am telling myself its the medication and the minor disruption of the cathetar yesterday (although it was the smoothest transfer I have ever had, never felt a thing) so as not to get my hopes up! Good luck xx
Tinges are a good sign!
I had my transfer on 23 Jan and test day is 5 Feb. This is our 2nd round and I've had really sore boobs, nausea on and off and been extremely bloated since my transfer. The progesterone does mimic pregnancy symptoms so I don't think you can guess anything until the big test day.
On our first round I started bleeding the evening before my OTD, but got a BFP . Sadly my HCG levels decreased rather than increased whilst I continued to bleed heavily for the next 2 weeks.
I want to hug everyone who find themselves on this journey. I don't think I ever imagined how emotionally challenging it can be; the jabs, poking and prodding all seem small fry compared to the constant waiting and trying to remain positive but not get your hopes up?!?
Good luck ladies. x x x
Agree with this, I don't mind the injections, medications, scans, appointments...it's the waiting and the balance between hope and protecting your feelings incase it doesnt work..thats the really hard part xx
I’m sorry your first round was a BFP that then decreased. I’ve had this three times so very nervous but also had a healthy baby two years ago so have lots of hope it will work again.
I know the progesterone gives all these symptoms but equally sounds really promising!! Keep us posted.
And yes a big hug back to you. This is the most all-consuming, overwhelming journey and yes how do we stay positive and yet realistic at the same time? X x x x
Good luck🥰 I have my transfer next week x
I had a 5 day blastocyst transfer on the 25th. Had a few twinges and sore boobs last week but no other symptoms. Started spotting on Monday and now have what looks like full blown AF 😞 this is my first round so wasn’t sure what to expect but that took me by surprise. Clinic have said to still come in for my test on Saturday but definitely not hopeful now!
I am thinking of doing a home test on Saturday, day 7. Will that show anything you think??
Hi Sandy, when is your official test date? I’m only on day two of the 2ww 😬. I’ve had a bfp on day 7 before but with twins so might be a bit early to show a line if it’s a singleton? Wonder what the average time is? My otd is 11th which will be 9 days.
Hi there! My official date is February 8 so Day 9! Yes you are right maybe 7 days wont show... oh this waiting is a killer!
Waiting is the worst part of IVF isn’t it! Hang in there you’re doing brilliantly!
Did you test Sandy? Sending so much positive luck to you x x
I did!! And it was.positive! I have the blood test appointment tomorrow and i think i can hear my heart beating!!
Oh this is wonderful news!! Congratulations you must feel so good. Such a rollercoaster. Will your clinic also do bloods or just wait for scan? Good luck with it all! Is it your first baby? X x x
Thank you! I will feel ok when i see the blood test results! When are you testing?
I caved and tested today 6dp5dt and got a clear positive. Feeling elated and scared at the same time. Eeeeek!!
Just wanted to check and see how everyone is holding up? I've caved and tested, I just couldn't wait any longer! Sending lots of baby dust to everyone xx
Hi EmyTW. I had lots of backpain and gagged taking my kitties food out yesterday so i did a test today morning. It was negative and feel so deflated and emotionally drained now. I am 9dp2dt. And test date is mon 8th so in 4days time. I dont know if this cycle has 100% has failed as i did a ‘6day early pregnancy test too which is super sensitive’
How were your results? X
Hi FM91, sorry to hear about your BFN. Did you use a First Response? I have previously had negative results with First Response (when it's been positive). This morning I got a BFP (faint) on Clearblue, which I am in shock about! It is still early days of course but feeling very grateful for getting over this hurdle. Keep positive. X
I used the clearblue 6day early one and they are usually quite truthful for me so i think i know in my heart. Bt stil clinging onto some hope
Thats great news for you. Im glad. Fingers crosssed its a healthy pregnancy x
Wow congrats on your BFP!! Is today your otd did you test again? X x x
Thank you Elle_hope. My OTD was today, and it's still positive - a bit darker this time, so feeling so grateful. I think lots of the others get bloods to confirm, but I don't think my clinic does that - they will just scan me in a few weeks. Another excruiating wait! When is your OTD? This weekend? x
Has anyone tested so far? I’m only on day 3 so have a long way to go! Sending lots of baby dust x x x
I'm also on day 3 so a long way to go 😊 going back to work on Monday so that should take my mind off it, I am always worse the closer it gets to Otd, which is Sat 13th. Are you going to test early? Xx
My otd is the 11th. I don’t know if I will test early, probably not. I don’t feel any twinges or anything so I’m not feeling particularly positive right now x x x
Last time I had a bfp I just ‘knew’ which is why I tested early.
Yeah if your test date is the 11th thats quite early anyway (day 9?)
On my only pregnancy that sadly ended in early mmc, i tested day 9 and got my bfp. I will be in work upto my test date so wont test early. Will leave it til the sat, then if its not good news I have got the weekend to try and recover a little xx
That’s a good plan to wait until the weekend. I’m just in bits. Sorry to hear about you Mmc. I’ve had 3 mmcs so just hoping this is the one (also have a 2yo daughter in between so there’s lots of reason to hope!) xx
Aww i'm sending you lots of love and positive thoughts ❤❤ its heartbreaking isnt it when that happens, but so glad to hear about your little girl 😊 yes we must never give up hope xx
Good luck testing tomorrow! I’ve been thinking of you xx
I actually caved and did a FRER this morning...and got a BFP. So happy but also so nervous so trying not to get too excited. I see you also got BFP, amazing news xxx
Such amazing news, congratulations! It’s so nerve wracking isn’t it? I just want to get a good blood result and try to take each step at a time. X x x x x
Thank you. Yes it doesnt feel real. I dont think I will be able to get my hopes up at all. My clinic doesnt do bloods, just a scan in around 3 weeks so I will just have to wait it out until then xx
I’m on my 10 day past transfer, implantation on the 27th of January How are you?
Hi all, I’m 10dp5dt today, OTD is Mon and I’ve done a great job of ignoring the 2ww as much as possible so far 😛 mostly because the round was the usual trauma of ups and downs and new obstacles and plan b’s so after transfer my husband and I just wanted to enjoy the peace and quiet of no more lab updates and difficult decisions for a few days. In terms of possible symptoms, I had a very prominent pain in my lower right abdomen days 4 and 5 p5dt, and then nothing until AF-like cramping and moodiness days 8 and 9 post transfer, but the cramping changed to very sharp pin-like cramps low down in my cervix or uterus all day yesterday (d9). Also yesterday I got a gush of watery discharge very unlike anything I’ve had before.
All of this is feeding my fragile hope, which is a dangerous exercise for me 😳
Anyone experience anything similar and get a positive?
Good luck to all!!
I'm so impressed with your patience and getting on with life in the 2ww! I've become slightly obsessed with analysing every twinge in my body this time around - and from what I have read in these forums (which is alot!), cramping and shooting type pain seems to be pretty normal - but so is not cramping. We all speculate so much (well I know I do!), and until we wee on the stick we just don't know! Wishing you lots of positive vibes and baby dust for Monday x
Thank you so much! Symptom checking is totally futile and totally impossible to avoid in the 2ww! Unfortunately my situation changed dramatically since yesterday, this morning I woke up to fresh blood and passed tissue and the bleeding has continued on and off so I’m pretty sure I’m out ☹️
Good luck to everyone testing tomorrow xxx lots of baby dust xxx
Me too! Had my transfer on 3rd feb xx
Oh hey ladies ! So glad I found this chat. I just had FET 3DT 30.01 my last embryo and it took me 2 years to make that 1 good embryo.....
I only have light symptoms at night....I'm normal all day then brests swell up at night. That's it🙄
Hi. Just to update you all, unfortunately my pregnancy test was negative today💔. Not sure as to what the next steps are as this was my first transfer so find out when i get a call from the hospital today. Wishing the rest of you better news x
I’m so sorry FM. That’s just the worst news and I’ve been there many times. It’s your first transfer so keep positive. For me with my 2yo it was 3rd time lucky. Do you have any frozen embryos? Sending a big hug this morning to you x x
Thank you for your kind words. Fortunately i have 1 5day blastocyst that they refroze this FET. And another 7 fertilised embryos that they frozen day after my egg retrieval. Due to risk of ohss i had to wait couple months and couldnt go ahead with transfer at the time. Iv just talked to the nurse. Guess couple of months mental break before i start again. I just thought i could be the one that got lucky with a positive at the first go. Im sure everyone feels like that due to the hope and yearning we have for a baby
Sorry to hear this ☹ xx
So sorry to hear your news. I’m on my second cycle and I do think it was a lot easier than the 1st failed one (we only got 1 egg). I was so anxious first time but this time I’m definitely more relaxed I know what to expect and felt more prepared. I was due to go in for my test yesterday but I’m snowed in, the world has a funny way of testing us. Do try to keep positive even though that’s also incredibly hard. Hopefully next time 🤞🏼
Sending you a huge hug.
Not what you're looking for?

Anyone else going crazy?
Pretty sure I have ovulated by now as had the positive test a few days ago.Praying for a miracle...
has been through an overload of hormones and drugs now including progesterone suppositories so...
I know of another lovely lady is also on 2ww. Is anyone else? If so how are you feeling? X
Hi- I had a single Embryo transfer on Friday 1st (FET HRT cycle) all went smoothly.... taking it...
