Hi Ladies
I've lurked on these boards for while... absolutely not symptom spotting of course ;) ... But let's be real, as much as we swear we won't, it's pretty much impossible to stick to!

So I thought that when I got my BFP I would post the symptoms in case it helps anybody!

I had a 5 day embryo transfer (blastocyst), first round of IVF. I'm 37.

1-3 days past 5d transfer- mild cramps. Nothing to write home about but I could feel a bit of discomfort. Slightly sore boobs. Both probably related to progesterone.

4-8dpt- Nothing. Zip. Nada.
Boobs not really sore at all anymore.

Night of 8dp5dt- Really bloated hard tummy. Then bad cramps at night, like AF. Kept waking me up on and off. Woke up in the morning to the slightest bit of pink spotting. Figured too late for implantation so probably not a great sign. Slight fullness/ pressure for the rest of the day but no more bleeding.

9dp5dt- Same thing as night before. But no spotting, just cramping. Slept terribly. Had a client event all day and our Xmas party that night so decided I had to test the next morning!

10dp5dt- BFP! On Clearblue digital 1-2 weeks.

Clinic has said to test again in a few days time...

The only advice I can really give is don't stress about being stressed! I have a hectic, stressful job and have been crazy busy the past few weeks. Stressing about being stressed just doubles the stress! Just try to manage it as best you can and keep busy to keep your mind off of the wait.

Wishing you all lots of baby dust. Good luck!! X
