Hi all, I had my first embryo transfer this weekend and so I'm in my 2WW. I'm doing quite well at keeping distracted and managing my expectations, but good GOD I am hungry. I can't stop eating! I think it might be a side effect of the progesterone, but did/does anyone else have the same thing?
I've had two breakfasts and I'm ready for lunch. It's 11 am : )

Progesterone has made me gain weight in the past. I'm guessing it will subside once you're off the meds but do try to snack on fruit between meals rather than high cal foods. If your treatment isn't successful you don't want to have the additional worry of added weight to deal with too (unless your BMI is too low of course!). I find a banana and a water bottle or cup of tea can often curb afternoon biscuit cravings when working in an office environment ;-)
