@Caesardust in my pregnancies ive never really had symptoms apart from sore boobs and bluish veins but the progest also causes this so symptoms have never appeared for me although the cycle i conceived e who was put back as a 4 cell i did feel implantation cramps. Its such a mind **** isnt it
agree! @Bongley so your dp must be glad your weaning off the steroids then
@Caesardust hang in there, in my experience it's a head fruck either way, symptoms or no symptoms you'd be questioning them anyway. Symptoms come later, so just take a day at a time and don't get too far ahead of yourself otherwise everything can seem too hard. I know, the waiting and the doubts send you crazy. Big hugs
😕 Seems I ovulated early. Despite orgalutran. Oestrogen was 4000 on Friday. It's 2000ish today. And my progesterone is up. So Cycle #4 cancelled. And I had 7 beautiful follicles this morning.
I don't have sore boobs at all. I did have sore boobs on my first couple of cycles when I was using progesterone support but not using it this cycle. I don't even know if my progesterone levels are ok. Shouldn't they test for that? My clinic dumps me after transfer every time.
I can remember I felt some mild cramping on implantation day but it could've been caused by gas/constipation as I was struggling with that then. I have even lost weight this cycle even though I'm on 25mg of steroids a day so it is all feeling wrong.
The other Lovelies are right when they say it's too early to know as HCG would only *just* be starting to be secreted into your system despite the Pregnyl and it does need to build up a bit before even the most minor of symptoms..like running to the loo more often for eg, are able to be experienced *IF* you experience any of them at all!!!
Not every woman experiences implantation cramping or bleeding. In fact, the majority don't. Same deal about the sore breasts, "lavvy lurking" etc, etc. The *proper* symptoms that the majority of women will experience don't even kick in until around 6-8 weeks for *most* women.
I understand you feel that it's game over and I think a lot of that is a coping mechanism that we all do to some degree to protect our hearts. The old "hope for the best, prepare for the worst" scenario. Maybe not a bad way to be in some respects, however Luv, it really is much too soon to call it a day on this Cycle ok??
I agree, it really is such a mindfr*ck and that's why I call it the "2WTorture" because it bloody-well is emotionally and mentally!!! It's enough to send you around the frigging bend at times!!!
I'm not giving up on you so will still be everything, dropping a bomb your way and sending prayers for you for darkening lines over the coming days!!!xo
@GreyDove oh no! That must have been a real shock for you. If it's not one thing it's another.
@Caesardust I never got sore boobs. First symptom was fatigue about 2 weeks after my BFP.
@tuxcat oh yes, he'll be glad to see the back of pred. I am in awe of anyone that can put up with it longer than a couple of months.
Pregnant for the first-time?
