Disney I know exactly how you feel..
I keep wondering the same thing.. Am I going around feeling and believing I'm pregnant when in reality my little emby has stopped growing ages ago..
But, I believe that he is still there and go strong.. So much so I bought a 0000 Mambo onsie from Big W yesterday that says "waiting for the milk to come in"
I had my 3dt on 2/02 and my blood test is the 15th so I think your test on the 17th is normal.. but I think it all depends on the clinic
My cramping has stopped (it was quite sore yesterday) and today I am getting twinges every now and then so praying that emby has found a safe and warm home..

Cramping is a good sign jeb! I hope that I get cramping soon, although I'm sure if I do, I will be upset thinking AF is coming
I guess I feel pretty positive about this, but I'm just letting the little bit of negativity shine through to protect myself from disappointment.
My poor DH is so excited! He keeps coming up to me smiling and laughing saying "how exciting, there is a little baby in there'
So I really hope it works for his sake too.
I get butterflies every now and then at the thought of a baby being in there, but then I start thinking if it is all over already.
Oh geez this is hard lol. I'm just going to focus on how much I don't want to go back to work on Thursday. Especially since I have a very active/body straining job
I just want to be preg so bad so that I can eventually leave that hell hole!

Disney - I've been freaking out at all the cramping and now freaking out at no cramping.. lol.. I had a slight pink tinge yesterday and this morning on the loo paper, but nothing since.. today I've had twinges come and go during the day (but could be my ovaries settling down) and have had heaps of CM as well.. hmmm
I know what you mean, I am soo positive that emby is in there and doing his thing but somewhere inside me, I am scared sh**less of him not being there and having to go through surgery and all this again
I do sing to my emby every day so hopefully that doesn't scare him away.. lol
Ah the work thing.. I feel you on that I'm on a contract here that ends in September (so an October baby is perfect) and I don't really want to be finding another job.. I want to be starting my family.. while everyone around me is finishing their families (at my age or younger) I've not even started..
Big hugs to us all.. xo

Hi Disney and Jeb I don't know if this info will be useful or not but here goes ...
I have had cramping since my 2WW started and I still do due to the progesterone. The joy is that I believe my specialist will keep me on pessaries until at least 8 weeks to give me and bub the best chance. Try not to read too much into the cramping. It is not always a sign of AF but it does mess with your mind in the meantime. And Jeb, was the pink tinge in some progesterone "comeback"? If so it is normal to get a salmon colour come out sometimes. It is excess progesterone that your body hasn't absorbed.

I had one of the worst mornings of my life yesterday. For me the worst part of this process is waiting to see how many embies get to day 5. On Saturday 7 of the 9 were where they should be. Yesterday was my scheduled transfer but when they called none had made it to blasy - none. I can not tell you how devastated I was. I had a frozen one left over from a previous cycle so they thawed it out (thank goodness it survived the thaw) and transferred it yesterday afternoon. The clinic called today to say that one of the embies from this batch made it to blasty over night so we have one to freeze. Thank goodness for miracles.
I wanted to give up yesterday, it totally killed my spirit. Now I'm in a really negative mood thinking this is never going to work, that my eggs are just crap and that I have too much going against me. Argh this sucks so wish I was born fertile.
Disney and Jeb - Like CJ says, don't worry too much if you get cramping the progesterone will cause that and it can also cause the coloured tinges you see. Disney I'm going for my BT on the 17th too, we can be 2WW buddies.
To all the girls who got their BFPs congratulations
To everyone in the 2WW hang in there

I don't really have any cramping at the moment, just a constant uncomfortable feeling in my pelvic/uterus area. My back also hurts a little too.I pretty much have my usual AF symptoms already, including the sore sides of boobs, but I had that even before EPU so I know it can't be transfer related...I hope!I actually think deep deep DEEP down, that this isn't going to work, but for the sake of we actually got this far, I will keep positive for now.YAY for a 2ww buddy summershine!I'm also EXTRA not looking forward to going back to work because my boss knows and she has baby on the brain herself, but she is a fertile and doesn't understand TTC let alone IVF! So she is constantly asking me stuff about ovulation etc, and I just know that she will be asking me if I feel pregnant and stuff. How the hell am I suppose to know?? I've never been pregnant before lady!!!

Hey Disney - I think you try and be as positive as you can, and I know its hard. I have expected every step of this process to fail, from stimulation, to epu, to waiting 5 days to see how many blasts made it, to now, here I am, nearly at the end of my tww with 2 solid pink lines on the hpt and getting stronger. Over the years I have lived pretty hard, I've smoked too much at times, eaten crap food and been very overweight at times and done little or no excercise at some points in my life, and here I am at 41, looking down the barrel of baby number 1, statistically it shouldn't have happened , but it looks like it possibly has (I'll know Friday) - I always thought that if it didn't work, well it was my own damn fault for putting it off for so long!!!
For the record I had some mild cramping last week, but since then, not so much as a twinge, if-fact I feel like I could run a marathon. Its interesting how all our bodies react so differently to the process, no-one is the same.
My fingers are crossed for you Disney and everyone else - who knows what the next couple of weeks will bring for all of us.

Afternoon beautiful ladies!
OMG, Amysan and CJ81 - CONGRATULATIONS!!! So many BFPs on this thread!! I just hope now everything goes easily for you both and that I join your ranks in a couple of weeks!
Disney, a lot of FS's measure the 2WW from date of EPU and not of transfer so sounds like you're spot on for the 17th. I guess because transfer can be anywhere from day 2 to day 6 so maybe EPU is more standardised? In any case, you'll be one day after me. we both get our BFP!
Jen, I know how you're feeling, and I guess we're now just going to have to settle in for a lifetime of worrying. First you worry that you're not pregnant at all, then you worry that you'll miscarry or get an ectopic pregnancy, then you worry about the nuchal scan, then the baby's born and you worry about EVERYTHING else!! All you can do, you're already doing. Just be positive, keep yourself busy and try to relax and enjoy the time as much as possible.
Summershine, it sounds like a nightmare day for you. I'm really glad your frosty thawed well and that he or she is on board mumma now. And what a stroke of luck at the last minute to still get an emby to freeze when you thought you'd lost all of them. Try and keep your chin up hon, and look after yourself.
AFM, sometimes I have to remind myself that I have embryos on board now. For me, because of the ectopics and mc, the idea of carrying a pregnancy to term is so unreal. Everytime I think that there are little lives trying to burrow into my body, it's a shock. I'm just trying to keep busy and look after myself as well as I can so that the next 10 days passes quickly!

Joozys - Congrats on the 2 pink lines! I hope that I can be as lucky as you!! I too haven't been as good as I should the past few years. Up until 9 months ago, I was still smoking
And I don't usually eat too healthy at the best of times anyway, but I have REALLY tried this IVF cycle. I cut out coffee and chocolate and minimised sugar. I have now started to drink pineapple juice to help with implantation.
Cal - I just got butterflies when you said "Everytime I think that there are little lives trying to burrow into my body, it's a shock".
I never thought of it that way. I've always just seen it as my emby is just floating around inside getting lost!
I just want this so badly
