I'm not going to be much help-but from what I've read with other women who have gone through IVF they say the cramping is common.
I know I'd be freaking out if I kept sneezing but I think you'll be fine.  The little guy will implant.  Hang in there and try and relax.  Sticky Sticky baby dust to you!

Yes, the cramping is common.  I did my second transfer on 10/9 and was scared b/c it felt like I was going to get my period.  My Dr. said it is common.  I know it is so hard to wait but don't stress.  I left for Florida to visit my sister for 5 days 3 days after my transfer!!!  I laid on the beach, swam in the ocean and completely relaxed.  I am now 9wks pregnant.  Good luck - I hope you get a BFP!!!

PS  I doubt that sneezing will affect your embryo.  Call your IVF nurse - she'll reassure you...

Thanks smunchkin2.....  I am very hopeful to hear all the success stories of IVF....we have been waiting for a long time.... ( I am sure other people have been waiting longer than us...)  I wish i could find out now, but I am trying to keep myself busy and now that I am on Thanksgiving vacation with family in town, this may help!!!  I still like the idea of relaxing on the beach, and of course NOT in a BIKINI!!!!  I have been cramping on-off for the past couple of days....some more like AF cramps....although I am only 3dpt....congratulations with your success with IVF and keep us posted on your journey!!!!  Take care!!!

hi there!  i've been thru ivf 4 times (1 time 2 years agao w/my dd) and now i'm 8 weeks preggo with number 2!!! woohoooooo!!  the tww is the absolute worst w/ivf b/c it's such an extensive process and then to have to wait.... ugh, it stinks, i know!!!  i experienced some light cramping too.  i'm sure you're on progesterone shots now right?  if yes, that is a major side effect of progesterone so try not too worry.  i felt like i was getting a cold but never did when i was in the tww and got preggo and i had a gassy/upset (not nausea) stomach right away.  other than that, no real symptons.  it's tough but hang in there.  best of luck!  keep us posted.

I'm so excited for you that you went ahead with IVF!! I don't much about it, but I wish you the best of luck!  I'll be thinking about you.  Don't worry about sneezing and doing other things like that.  You sound like me, though.  I would worry (needlessly, I'm sure) about the same things!!!  GOOD LUCK!!!

My transfer was done 7 days ago.  I did a home pregnancy test on Friday, which was only 5 days after tranfer.  It was negative.  Do you think it could be wrong?  I still haven't gotten my period.  It's so hard to wait until the blood test on Friday.
