    Hi ladies, I'm brand new to this thread. After eight and a half years of TTC #1 I finally got my BFP from IVF. I'm due August 25th and for the last 10 days I've had non stop cramping and a severe IBS flare up. I haven't had any spotting or bleeding and they checked my HCG at 4 weeks 3 days and I was 288 and rising. Has anyone else had the cramps? They're awful and in finding hard to leave my bed without massive amouns if pain.

    Congratulations on your BFP! That is awesome
    Cramping is quite normal during pregnancy, i had it with my first and also with this one. Its your uterus stretching and preparing to carry a baby for the next 9 months.
    I didn't find it painful though. Maybe the pain is related to your IBS? What does your doc think?

    Welcome girls and congrats. cHoOchA, we fell pregnant on our 6th IVF cycle - it's a tough road. I was told I'd never fall pregnant & that my ovaries would "be fried" after a year of chemo in 2009.. I always knew I'd prove them wrong! :-)
    I get the odd bout of bad cramping - and I agree with Lolakitty - I'm told it's normal (in the absence of bleeding). I feel nauseas at odd times (mainly at night) and am very tired. I have a bad case of "can't be bothered"s this Christmas. I'm finding I need a nap around 3pm - but then don't sleep very well... How is everyone else sleeping?
    We're 11 weeks today. Merry Christmas all x

    Yeah ivf is a long road. 6 cycles wow, I applaud your strength and determination!

    I'm sleeping pretty well at the moment, just waking up a few times to go to the bathroom. How about everyone else?

    Morning ladies,
    my cramps are still hanging around being evil. Last night they woke me up twice!! But they quickly went away after I got up and then lay back down. Everything I've read says its perfectly normal and my IVF nurse said as long as there's no blood and I'm not crippled over needing to go to hospital that I shouldn't worry about it.
    Urgh still pretty hard to stay calm though

    I've had a pretty uncomfortable pregnancy so far and I'm only 5 weeks. IBS on Friday landed me in hospital because I started pooping blood (sorry TMI) and the bowel cramps are terrible, they accompany my uterus cramps and fight as to which one will make it the hardest for me to stand up. My morning sickness kicked in at about 4 weeks and I have to carry muesli bars around with me and I have to pee every hour (that symptom's not too bad).

    Sorry to complain but I'm really waiting for that glow. All my friends say it comes around the 2nd trimester so come on 7 more weeks!!

    Don't worry, we all complain

    It does get easier. I'm 9 weeks and my nausea has eased up a bit. I'm still very exhausted though.

    I really admire you ladies who have gone down the IVF road, especially if it took a few rounds. All your hard work has paid off it's wonderful!

    Hi ladies,
    I'm due 31st August on my calculations.
    Currently sitting in the waiting room of the doctors waiting to get the results of my bt.
    Fingers crossed the levels are good!
    I've had nausea since 5 days before I could even get a faint line on any hpt but luckily haven't actually felt the need to throw up-yet!
    I'm also really tired but that could have more to do with the massively long work days over the last week!
    This will be our first bub and we are both super excited. We are planning on telling my family tomorrow at Xmas lunch. Know it's early but figure it might be a bit obvious when I won't eat the abundance of seafood we have planned for lunch or touch a drop of alcohol!
