My third 2 week wait😭

albbbxo profile image

These never seem to get any easier, if anything they get harder each time!

This is my 3rd cycle of IVF except this time I had the down reg injections as I have endometriosis and quite a few big cysts on my ovaries.

Is there anyone in their 2 week wait or just come out of it with any help tips? I thought I’d be more positive this time but some days I really lose hope 😔

This is generally one of the hardest things to do! I just wish I could sleep right through to test day!

♥️♥️♥️

Hey. On the same boat here (1st time), climbing up the walls. Watching engaging TV series helps, but not nearly enough. How many days post ET are you? When are you planning to test? Much luck to you.

I sometimes find I can’t concentrate on tv because this is all that is on my mind.

4 days post how about you?

I think I’ll wait till test day 22nd I’ve tested early before and it’s not a good idea 😔 how about you? X

Yes, it's hard to concentrate. Comedy helps me. I am 7 days post, with some concerning symptoms (spotting) and lack of symptoms (breasts no longer sore), and struggling.

I'm tempted to test tomorrow.... x

See at the moment my boobs are slightly sore but nothing drastic. It’s really hard because you don’t know if the symptoms are from the medicine we take or actual pregnancy symptoms! Best of luck lovely whatever you decide to do♥️

Yes, it's super hard. Symptoms come and go and the wait is torture. Thanks! Best of luck to you too! x

Breast soreness came and went for me in my 2WW (the one when I WAS pregnant!) so hold out hope! It doesn’t necessarily mean it’s over!

Thanks! I tested negative today :( It's only 8dp5dt, but my hopes are next to none at this point.

I'm on my second 2ww. My test day is on Friday. I was positive until yesterday and now I'm a negative nelly. My boobs aren't really sore, I don't feel any different, and feel almost like I do when in about to start a period, like a heavy feeling. My slight cramps stopped about 3 days ago :( I'm scared to test this time round as then it's all over xx

See I think I’m comparing all my cycles to each other. But really every one is different, it’s so hard isn’t it. I’m trying to not read in to everything but again it so hard! I’m scared to test. But I’m wishing you all the best lovely and got everything crossed for you! Xx

Hi Fossy. I’m also on my 2nd two week wait and test day is Friday. I feel exactly the same way. Boobs aren’t sore and I’m a bit crampy. I have also been burping a lot 🙈. Im dying to test. I can’t handle the waiting. I’ve not bought any tests in yet as if they are in the house I’ll crack xx

Flossybubble in reply to Joy35

I'm the same if the tests are there I'll do them, I just feel like I'm about to come on and that ant be a good sign. I think burping is a good sign tho so fingers crossed for you lovely xxx

Joy35 in reply to Flossybubble

Don’t think like that. Feeling like your about to come on doesn’t mean anything. Try and not let it get into your head. Last round I was super negative cause I thought it wouldn’t hurt so much of it didn’t work. It was awful regardless so trying to be more positive this time xx

Flossybubble profile image
Flossybubble in reply to Joy35

I did that last time I self sabotaged and thought it if I tell myself it won't work I won't be as disappointed, but I still was. So this time I was more positive but realistic, until last couple of days I've just nose dived down into doubt xx

Joy35 in reply to Flossybubble

It’s so hard to stay positive all the time. You can’t help the thoughts creeping in. I’ve told a couple of my friends and family and feel myself getting annoyed when they are super positive “oh don’t worry it will defo work this time”. I kinda wish I hadn’t told anyone now xxx

Flossybubble profile image
Flossybubble in reply to Joy35

I know how you feel, nobody understands unless you've been through it. I'm sick of people telling me how to feel. Telling me to be positive when I know my body and feel like its bad news. Xxx

Joy35 in reply to Flossybubble

I know they are trying to be nice but it just makes me angry. I’m trying so hard not to be snappy. My mum keeps saying things like would you prefer a boy or a girl, have you thought of names, would you put them into swimming lessons etc. I swear I’m gonna pull my hair out haha. 4 days to go. Although I told them my test day was later. So I don’t have to deal with them on Friday. I think I’ll crack and test early xxx

Flossybubble in reply to Joy35

I wish I'd of done this. I might test Thursday morning so I can have a peaceful day. My mom keeps asking 'how's pumkin' 🙄 I'm like.. I don't know, it puts more pressure on us. Next time I'm not gonna tell anyone at all. It's driving me mad now cuz I feel if it's over I just wanna stop all the pregesterone n estrogen n get my body back to normal hormones xx

I had a negative test this morning :( I've stopped all my meds, just feel so flat.Good luck to you I hope you get your BFP ❤

Joy35 in reply to Flossybubble

Oh no. Im so sorry. Sending lots of love. I know how you feel. I just felt so deflated last time. Run your self a nice hot bath and take a bottle of alcohol to the tub with you.

Be kind to yourself xxxx

Thank you lovely. I'm just gonna have a break from it all for my own sanity. Please keep me posted ok xxx

Really sorry to hear about your negative test this morning. But if your test day is not until Friday please keep going with your meds until then. I know it’s so hard when you feel defeated but with 2 more days to go you never know. Big hugs xx

I stopped my meds I just feel so strongly like my body needs to bleed and the meds are stopping it, so it's no point in taking them now if I've missed then all day is it? Xx

I totally understand what you are saying. And totally respect your decision. But I just wanted to comment because I have read so many stories of women on here who were convinced that their period was coming and had completely given up then got their bfp. Of course I’m not saying that will happen, but it just feels like you have come so far to stop short of your test day, just in case. I’d say it’s still worth taking your meds now. But you just need to do what feels right for you lovely. It’s so tough. Take care xxx

Thank you. I know it was silly of me to stop then I just felt like I'd had enough and resented them. I will speak to the clinic in the morning I think last time they said a day wouldn't change the outcome, so I just thought 2 days wouldn't change it to positive xx

Its not silly, I totally understand that feeling of resentment and just wanting to take back control to get some closure. One of our rounds I started bleeding heavily before my test date but the clinic told me to keep up with the injections and I remember feeling so frustrated & fed up. But if you aren’t yet bleeding and not yet reached test day it’s worth holding on in there if you can. But see what the clinic say tomorrow. Big hugs xx

Thank you for the advice, I will do ❤

It went really smoothly thank you. I’m working all week so hoping it will go quickly and then I’ll be so tired on the weekend I’ll not think about it too much. Really is torture! Wish I could predict the outcome 😫

I’m currently in my 4th 2ww and my test day is Supposed to be Saturday but they have agreed to allow me to test Friday. Im at the ‘another failure’ point so feel flat as hell. So hard to pull your head out of the depresso mode once you decide it hasn’t worked again. Hopefully Im wrong and being negative Nancy for nothing. Good luck to everyone. Xx

I’m exactly the same, I’ve really struggled the last few days with my emotions and dealing with the constant thoughts! I’ve had some cramping today and can never work out if I’m making myself thinking my boobs are sore! Best of luck! ❤️

I feel exactly the same, and my partner saying stay positive, but I feel I know :( xx

It’s so hard isn’t it, I’m glad there’s things like this fertility network whwre you can speak to women in the same position. Best of luck xx

Nice to have this chat where everyone is on their two week wait. We could all have positive in a week or two 🤞💞. Let’s all try to stay positive. Hoping this is our turn for all of us xxx

Most definitely! Keeping everything crossed for us all❤️ xxx

Also on the tww transfer Saturday, I’m pottering round the flat, I’ve got today off as today was meant to be transfer day but as we only had the one egg we ended up with a day 3 transfer The flat is tidier than ever!!

albbbxo in reply to Papillonblue

You try to have balance between keeping yourself busy but also not wanting to over do anything. Which is so so hard. Best of luck xx

Papillonblue in reply to albbbxo

My consultant was quite relaxed, he said to carry on as normal my body is a perfectly designed incubator and if it’s going to stick then it will, there is very little I can do that will influence the outcome

Good luck!!!

We had our transfer this afternoon so have now joined you in the 2ww. My strategy is normally to just try and keep busy, so will be working the rest of the week. Although no doubt I’ll be useless because I’m totally distracted! Wishing you the best of luck lovely ☘️🤞xx

Wishing you all the best lovely! I’m trying to keep busy I’ve definitely found being back at work helps keeps me distracted! Did you transfer to okay? Xx

Picalilli99 in reply to albbbxo

That’s good, I’m glad it’s helping a little. I’m back in work tomorrow so hoping for the same! Yes the transfer went really well thanks. It was our 7th transfer but our first using DE. It was a much better quality than we tended to get with my own eggs so I am feeling (cautiously) hopeful again! I hope the next week or do goes quickly for us all xxx

Aww good good I’m glad it went well. Keeping everything crossed for us both. ♥️

Hey! I am also on my second week wait with the test day on Thursday. I felt very positive initially and had all the symptoms: sore boobs, burping, pain in a lower back and tummy, but last Thursday all the symptoms have disappeared. I did a test on Saturday and today (Monday) and both were negative... I know it was a bit early to test, but i read on this forum about so many ppl, who tested early and got a very light positive stripe. Now my hope is almost gone.

albbbxo in reply to Door14

Hey, it’s so hard, I sometimes wish it was like all or nothing with the symptoms like if you get them you are if you don’t you’re not. Because I’ve read so many different stories and every person has a different one. Don’t give up hope yet, I’ll keep everything crossed foe you! It’s easier said than done bjt try to not compare yourself you others. We’re all different ❤️❤️

Good luck to all of you in your 2ww 🤞🤞🤞 xx

Hey gurls! I also on my 2WW with my 4th transfer. I am super scared as I am already getting lower back pain n cramps like i get before my periods (and previous cycles). And also am crying on a pin prick! Transfer was on 10th, so still some time for me to test, but so losing hope! All the best to everyone in their 2ww
