Is anyone else currently on their 2ww for ICSI etc? What symptoms are you having and how are you feeling? Feel like I’m going mad and generally horrible with cramps, nausea etc. Would be nice if there is other people around that are in the same boat so we can help each other through it.

Hi. I am in the tww too. I had two day 3 embryos transferred yesterday. This is my 3rd fresh ICSI cycle and I no longer trust myself to symptom spot! When was your transfer?

Hi, my transfer was 1 embryo last Saturday. This is my first round of ICSI. I feel like I'm going out of my mind with the wait and the symptoms from the progesterone aren't helping. 🙁

It's sooooo hard waiting. The best thing to do is just keep busy. Do you have some nice things planned for the weekend? When is your OTD?

Me too. My doctor really struggled to find my follicles so I’m still hurting a lot from egg collection, it hurts to cough! Trying not to focus much on the chance of being preg as embryologist basically said it’s a v long shot based on the one egg we managed to get to do something. So bit down obvs.

Fingers crossed for all of us! My OTD is Wednesday. How about everyone else? X

Hi all I'm in my 2WW too - transferred 1 3 day embryo last Friday - my official test day is a week today but planning on testing a day early.

Progesterone is making me a bit crazy and weepy! My boobs were really sore but feel less so today which I'm thinking might not be a great sign.

Good luck to you all xxx

Just transferred a 5day blastocyst and I'm already driving myself mad! Roll on test day!

bluebird3 Sat 02-Dec-17 19:35:55

You never know boiing. It only takes one. That being said I know not wanting to get your hopes up. thanks

struggle... I'm the same with the progesterone. Weepy mess!

My OTD is a week a Monday- so 11/12. I'll probably test on Sunday though. Don't want to test before work!

Progesterone is evil as far as I'm concerned. In my husbands words 'you look 5 months pregnant already'. That along side the insanely sore/ huge boobs, the stomach cramps and constant nausea is driving me round the bend. 🙁 I'm hopeful but think I'm expecting the worst for Wednesday. Hoping my expectations are wrong obviously. Think it may in part be down to the stomach cramps that are make me feel like AF could start any minute. 😳🙁 Has anyone else had any of these symptoms? X

I had the insanely sore boobs, stomach cramps, constant nausea, and all day headaches during the 2ww whilst on progesterone - got my bfp! I was on progesterone for the first 16 weeks, and had period pains frequently during all this time - seems to be a popular side effect. Midwife & Drs said that as long as I'm not bleeding it's all ok. I'll be keeping everything crossed for you all, good luck!

E20 I have all those symptoms too. I also feel really tired. I keep reminding myself it will all be worth it for a bfp!

E2017 Sun 03-Dec-17 09:57:42

Been extremely tired the whole time as well. Averaging about an extra 4 hours sleep every 24hours then normal. Just hoping that it all goes ok. How is everyone else feeling now? X

Thanks Bluebird3. Interesting everyone’s so tired and weepy - me to but wasn’t sure if it was the progesterone or not! I keep waking up at 4.30am then going back to bed for a couple of hrs in the middle of the day, v weird and annoying. And crying at basically any movie. For a while I thought the latest films were all really moving but on reflection it is probably the drugs...

I'm still tired and weepy. I had been feeling a little nauseous but that seems to have passed now. Not sure if that's a bad sign? I have quite sore boobs still. My last transfer was a bfp but ended in a mc of a suspected ectopic. I had really bad implantation pains with that, but haven't had any this time. Not sure if that's good bc that was because it had implanted in the wrong place, or bad that nothing has implanted anywhere. I hate this waiting. When does everyone test?

Hi, I had a 5dt on Monday and the time seems to be going so slow now!! Have been told to test next Friday which seems ages away! Have also had cramping and felt nauseous and had really sore boobs. This really is the worse part of the treatment!! Good luck everyone xx

ProfessionalPirate Thu 07-Dec-17 19:09:34

Can I join? I'm 6dp2dt and the wait is killing me! Is everyone waiting until their OTDs to test? Mines not til dec 18th, which would be 19 days after my EC - seems a bit excessive!

E2017 Thu 07-Dec-17 19:35:35

Hi, wishing you all the best and hope that you get the results you want. Will keep an eye on the feed to see how you are all getting on. I had my OTD yesterday and got a BFP. Now got the even longer more nerve wracking (so far anyway) wait until my 7wk scan. 😬

natrobinson1982 Fri 08-Dec-17 00:15:54

Congratulations E2017 - that's fab news xx

bluebird3 Fri 08-Dec-17 11:31:08

Congrats E20! That's amazing.

Anyone else testing soon? My OTD is Monday but not sure I'll hold out till then.

NicolaT17 Fri 08-Dec-17 12:23:56

Hi I'm 2dp5dt... No symptoms at all. Test on 16th.

E2017 Fri 08-Dec-17 16:06:56

Thank you girls. 🤞 for you all. X

natrobinson1982 Sat 09-Dec-17 15:45:46

Hi, I am now 5dp5dt and have had some brown discharge. Has anyone else experienced this, am really worried that this is a sign that it hasn't worked and the clinic is not open until Monday so can't get any advice from the nurses!

Boiing Sun 10-Dec-17 15:26:44

Me too. From googling, it’s possible it’s a reaction to the cyclogest but who knows.

Boiing Sun 10-Dec-17 15:28:05

What tests are you doing? My clinic told me just to buy a urine test kit, but several other clinics said not to cos they’re unreliable (and to do blood trst instead). Seems odd.
