Just wondered if anyone on here has had ivf. I still have another week to test after embie transfer but boobs are a lot bigger and sore (ok, could be the progestrone I'm having to take) but also like almost overnight I am the grumpiest being ever. Everything is getting on my nerves, dp can do no right, to the point I'm in floods of tears for no reason. I'm generally a laid back person but today I'm a monster.
Perhaps its just the waiting to test that's awful and making me scream, I don't know??!!!

I think I was about 8 weeks before much changed although I had spotting and brown discharge before I did my test so I was convinced it hadn't worked again.

It will be the stress probably, it is the longest two week wait in the world. Got my fingers crossed for you.

Oh the 2ww!!!
Not sure if helpful or not but I had absolutely no symptoms whatsoever-even after my BFP on test day. I had a six weeks scan, an 8 wk viability scan, my 12 week dating scan, my 16 week check at mw where she listened to the heartbeat and between all of these appts I was convinced I had imagined it all as I just felt like me!
It was only when I started to feel bubs move at 19 weeks that I really started to believe!! I was so so lucky!!!

I'm now 35 weeks and looking forward to eating PFB! :-D

Good luck, no symptoms early on doesn't mean anything!!

I had my transfer on the Saturday and by Monday had sore boobs and felt tired and constantly queasy - I couldn't believe the symptoms happened so fast!

On my first (unsuccessful) cycle I waited until OTD to take a test like a good girl but it was a BFN. Always said I would never test early but on cycle 2 I tested 4 days early as I just kind of felt a bit pregnant - and I was (and still am -20 weeks now)! Had a slightly queasy feeling and kind of restless tiredness, and just felt kind of pregnant-ish!

I did think the progesterone evil nasty bullets gave me swollen boobs both cycles.

Think everyone is different though and I know others who have had an IVF BFP with no early symptoms at all.

Lots of luck - the IVF 2WW is the worst kind of torture x

I had the transfer on a Sunday, on Thursday I felt what I am sure was the implantation, on the Saturday I had an awful headache, so bad I had to go to bed in the afternoon which never happens to me, from then on the only symptom I had was that my skin on my abdomen felt different, more sensitive somehow.

it is abysmal wait.

Good luck x

Oh the 2 week wait made me very grumpy and irrational, so much so I was sure it was PMT.

About a week after transfer I did start feeling a tiny bit queasy but thought I was imagining/projecting. Turns out I am pregnant (8 weeks now) and I have the worst morning sickness ever.

Do keep us updated, everything crossed for you.

My legs were like jelly on CD25. Then I got ALL the usual period symptoms, and even bled on cd27 and 28 so I assumed it hadn't worked. Period didn't come to anything (realise now that was probably "miscarriage" of second embryo) but didn't test until cd32 as I was so convinced not PG. but I was.

But remember everyone has different symptoms so even if you don't have the same as a single response here, it means nothing! Really hope you get a BFP, and I agree that an IVF 2ww is an utter, utter nightmare.

Thanx for all your comments, i agree the 2ww after ivf is the worst wait. I am terrified to do the test tbh as i'm dreading seeing just one line. I'm back to work tomorrow so it will help to take my mind off of it x
