Kandp- try and not let the constipation get worse as that can increase those cramps. I get constant cramps and feel yuk after epu, which is why we did a freeze all last cycle for my body to heal.
Increasing fibre and water in the diet is good, but the pharmacist said to me last pregnancy that metamucil is only good for you if are already regular as it can further block you up if not.
The pharmacist suggested Lactolose to me last time when it got too severe and that worked very quickly, the other things are prunes daily fruit or juice and pear juice is suppose to do wonders.
If constipated it can give us headaches too.
Sorry girls I feel like all I'm doing is preaching, but if I can make things easier from my experience I like to help..
This is a tough journey we are on and I'm sure we have all asked ourselves that question, but hope is what keeps us going-well it does for us.
I can't remember Sel, if you spoke to your gp about how your feeling? As you can get a mental health care plan from a gp that allows you 5 visits with a psychologist ( Medicare covers most of the invoice and you pay a small gap fee), it can reassessed after the 5 to see if you need more, i have used a care plan a couple of times when things seem overwhelming.
What you are feeling is normal when we desire something so much, but how you choose to use those feelings to your advantage is the key. Don't let your body win, get up, go for a walk, find something you enjoy doing.

Had to share this too, he looks adorable ImageUploadedByBub Hub1345943586.528740.jpg and again he is lying on my tummy where he has taken up permanent residence the last few days.
Thanks zak. Yep im on one of those plans. Saw counsellor Friday. Thought I was doing ok, but obviously I'm not
I just can't shake the thought that someone isn't going to make it and the more people around me that get pregnant the more likely it is that its me
And I really want to get going again. I'm so sick of all of this.
Thanks zak, u r amazing.
Wish this cold would **** off. This is my second go. And now dh has it, god help us.
ps gp suggested antidepressant. my fs said he would rather i wasnt on one.
Or you could try some of the natural vitamins for mood lifters?
The way I got through my depression was making sure I planned to do something each day that I would look forward to, whether it was reading a book, going shopping, talking to a friend overseas, taking the dogs for a long walk and standing there in the complete silence letting my brain quiet, then taking deep breaths and listening to all that was around me- the wind, birds etc ( i live where you can get away from the hustle and bustle), visiting friends or family or even cooking something new..etc..working with my PT helped too, she was great to talk too..
Knowing your own warning signs is the key. Can you see your counsellor early this week? X

KandP - I was in pain after EPU, to point I was preparing dh for emergency room, I got through it and it was mainly to do with my bowels. Since ET I have had cramping on and off, so nearly two weeks. Some feel just like twinges others feel like mild AF. I have also noticed that I tend o get the more AF ones when my bowel is full or I have wind (sorry tmi). I've been downing the prunes to keep on top of it.
Zakmick - my cat was all over me for the days I was sitting at home after ET, like a bad smell, could not get enough of me!
