Good luck tomorrow!! I hope that it was simply a false negative and you will have some good news to share: )

I don't know, at this point it shouldn't be negative.  What a roller coaster!  My suffering will end tomorrow though.  I'd like to think of myself as a tree (I love trees).  I may lose some leaves tomorrow, but spring will come.  Time will heal my wounds and this only IVF cycle will be in the past.  I'll never forget I almost had four kids.

If you arent having any cramping after a day 5 blastocyst transfer is that normal. Can you still be pregnant? When would you have implantation bleeding if that occurs

Hi Akpu,

I know this is a difficult period...I am also in the 2ww...it's my first IVF cycle as well...had the ET yesterday...i.e 03/31...due to test for HCG on 03/15was in severe pain  last night...it's not easy...takes a toll on you physically and emotionally...but I know it will all be worth it...how you feeling now?

Avatar_f_tn
I am also in the 2ww...I had 2 frozen embies transferred on 3/26.  On 3/26 and 3/27, I had very faint cramping and mild nausea which would come and go....It subsided for a few days and last night I was nauseous before I went to bed.  My blood test is 4/8.  I took a home test today because I was curious and it came back negative..I am hoping for my sake I tested too early..I have had no sign of implantation bleeding or anything...just what I listed above.  I am afraid if I don't get the bleeding, then something is wrong, although everyone is different.  I probably stressed myself out for the day with the negative result. I hope everything works out for you.

This is now my 4th cycle so I know how you must be feeling.
My first cycle was in May 2009, got 5 good embies....don't know what happened, but didn't get preg.  2nd cycle, Jan 2010 no good embies. 3rd cycle Oct. 2010, didn't respond well to meds and cycled stopped.
I had transfer on 4/1 and I am now in the 2ww period.  I need not tell you how much anxiety my husband and I are feeling right now...aside from the daily proges shots that are knotting me up and causing severe pain.
I actually started feeling some very severe cramps this morning and beginning get worried.

Hello this is my third day after embryo transfer and it was such a beautiful day i did not stay all day inside. i have been going to the park for short walks.Now i am worried that i should have stayed in bed all day.
I am for the first time on Ebay winning lots of bids, spending a fortune but having fun. reading and feel very positive. however I really have cramps often and lots of gas yesterday. the cramps are not on one place but sometimes left and sometimes on the other side. If I would have my period. when would that start? Ohh, my brain goes everywhere....My breasts are bursting out of my bra, is that good news? or from the medication? I would like to know if some of this signs are good. OMG I feel like in a twighlight zone...

Is it normal without any feeling of cramps or pain after the 3rd day of transfer?

Hello Everyone, I am on 2ww on 9 day post embie transfer and so overwhelmed.  I also cry alot, last night I cried and cried, sometimes I feel different and think I am prego, then at times I feel normal and feel it didn't work.  This morning I woke up with some more cramping, I had been cramping, but only for a little bit, then it would go away and this morning has been for a while.  Is this normal?  Has anyone felt this before and had a positive?  I have been praying everyday, and I try to stay positive, but there is always that doubt in the back of my head.  I wish the best for everyone, but if anyone can please give me some advice.

Baby Dust To All!

I'm three day post 5 day embryo transfer.  One embryo was a blastocyst that looked really good and the other one just looked good.  I have cramping and feel nervous.  No spotting.

Btw, the oral progesterone with the better quality suppository is better than the IM shot.

And I'm seeing Dr Hummel in San Diego.  Really like him.

I am on my 12th day after the embryo transfer and I have 3 days left to go till the pregnancy test. I have been feeling alot of cramps especially today.

Along with cramps I had a feeling as if my period is coming very soon and very bad back pain which I eased under a warm shower.

Is there a possibility that I will be pregnant at all, or will I get my period very soon? Has anyone out there experienced this and came out with a positive result?

Would really appreciate your comment..

I would like to thank you for your reply, that makes me feel much better, but I won't keep my hopes too high, to avoid getting too dissapointed.

In addition to my comment, I have forgot to mention that at this stage, my breast are not sore at all, they were at the early stage but only 2 more days till the blood test and they are not sore even one bit. Did this happen to you as well? Or is this a bad sign?

Also, congratulations on your baby boy. You are very lucky and very blessed.

Hello everybody, i've been reading everybodies posts which have made me cry (i'm not usually this sentamental). It makes me feel better knowing more women are going through the same thing i am and understand how i feel. I'm in my first round of ivf, i had 3 ectopic pregnacies in the last four years. I had both my tubes removed and one of my ovaries was also removed because my last ectopic was growing in it. I just had my retrieval yesterday 6-8-11. two follicles were retrieved and i got the call that they were fertalized. Implantation will be on sat 6-11-11..
Good Luck to everyone!!!!
I don't know if my theory will work, but if it helps someone i'm happy. I've told myself that if i can't have children of my own i will adopt. I will love that child unconditionally and will know he/she will be in good hands with me. Most people don't understand my theory, but I try to stay positive and really want to become a mother no matter what.. Hope it helps someone out there..

Hi Stella,

I had my 3 day transfer on June 30th.  I am in the 2WW and it is so hard.  Are you going to test today?  This is my 2nd IVF, the first one failed.  I am nervous to test early, that is what I did the last time and it was negative.  I am very hopeful this will be positive.  I had one good egg - 8 cell.  I have a low ovarian reserve and do not respond well to treatment.  I've also had two miscarriages (naturally conceived) and we are going on 3 years of trying to have a family.  It is sooooooooo hard!!!!  I wish the best for you and everyong on this website!!!

I'm so very sorry to hear of your news.  My jaw drops to hear of only 5 eggs retrieved.  I had my egg retrieval last July, 33 eggs were retrieved, 28 survived.  We have had 6 transferes since July 18th, 2010.  We've had 2 pregnancies, and the loss of 3 babies, all at 6wks.  We just had our last transfer July 21st.  My blood test is Aug 3rd and I am an emotional wreck.  The waiting period is awful.  I have cramping non stop, nauseous because of the meds, etc... You know all about that.  All I can say is keep your head up and keep praying.  Best of luck to you if you chose to continue your adventure.

It is reassuring to hear everyone's comments. I am on my first round of IVF, transferred 2 embryos on 8.1, test on my wedding anni on Friday! We are hoping for the best anni present ever, but fearing the disappointment. I have had cramping off n on and a general feeling of pressure in my lower abdomen. Last week the pains were short and shooting n this week more pressure, but not as bad as period cramps. I had a small amount of blood but nothing significant. Anyone have a pos test with similar symptoms. I am worried all symptoms that give me hope are false due to the progesterone.

I had a few IUI's, but they didn't work for me to low sperm counts of my partner.  IVF  has been a long and difficult ride.  I think the shots were the easiest part of the whole process.  After that I felt my stomach was always cramping, body was in pain, stomach swelled up, I had a large amount of weight gain.
The Dr. retrieved about 30 eggs, but only half were mature enough to go further.  I happy to hear that I was able to freeze some and had one to insert.  
I took the valium the Dr. has advised me on taking.  The egg transfer was pretty okay. I ended up getting acupuncture before and after my treatment to help things.
In the middle of the night I had period cramps and when I woke for work I had discharge.  My heart, my dreams and all the efforts I made sank.  I saw a small blood clot and stared at it for sometime thinking that might be my baby.  I broke down and assumed I lost the baby.
When I called my IVF nurse she said it is normal and it doesn't mean anything.  I toss and turn every night and think about the results I am going to receive on Wednesday.  It is always the question..did it hold, if it didn't hold..what else could of I done.
Tomorrow is my blood test and I'm a bit anxious. I already thought I lost they baby on Monday...but will know for sure tomorrow on the results.

I pray for anyone who is going through this.  It is damn tough..emotionally and physically.  But always stay positive and believe it will happen for you one day.

It has been a comfort to read everyone elses craziness.  I am 40 and on my first IVF cycle (after 2 failed IUI's).  I just had my transfer Wednesday and am continuing to take the Estradiol pills and the Progesterone shots (oh those are not fun). I have been trying not to go crazy wondering if there is something wrong.  I'm bloated.  I have cramps, but it's more of a pressure on my sides than a menstrual cramp feeling; along with other weird feelings inside here and there. My lower back aches as well.  Some of you say you have some of these symptoms, some don't.  I'm guessing it's a little different for everyone.  So I'm just gong to continue to follow the doctors advice to "take it easy" and pray, pray, pray for the best.  That's all we can really do.

Hi Everyone...this is my second IVF cycle. The first one did not make it to transfer. Today is my blood test. I am so nervous that I woke up at 4am and could not go to sleep. I've had spotting and cramping as well but I hear that does not mean you are or are not pregnant. I hope I am though like all of you guys are hoping.

Hi Everyone,
I have just spent the last half hour reading everyone’s comments, as i am so nervous right now about my 2ww...I got 1 blast transferred on the 21/11/11.
I haven’t really had any symptoms apart from some very slight cramping every now and then and a couple of pink/brownish blood spots on day 3 post transfer. I am now on day 5 post transfer and could not help myself and took a HPT which came back as negative, I am so upset right now as i feel like i have failed!!! can anyone tell me if it is still too early for it to have a positive reading at day 5 post transfer?

Hi all I just wanted to share my experience in case it helps anyone else out there.

After 3 years of trying, me and my hubby started our first cycle of ivf in April. On 9th May I had 14 eggs collected, of which 11 showed signs of fertilisation. I felt pretty ripough after egg collection so had 3 days off work resting and taking it easy. On day 3 I had two embryos implanted. I took it easy for a couple of days afterwards, but wasn't advised to take bed rest & pretty much continued my normal routine. The only real difference I made to my routine was refraining from exercise. I'm usually pretty active, but my clinic advised against any exercise other than gentle walking. They also advised against any heavy lifting or stretching.

A few days after embryo transfer we found out that none of our other embryos had been suitable for freezing which made us a little sad and slightly concerned about the quality of those which had been implanted. I also started with period like pains (although no bleeding) and these pains were pretty constant until we returned to the clinic on 28th May for our pregnancy test. I had no other pregnancy symptoms (ie no sickness or tiredness). I resisted doing any home pregnancy tests as I'd heard that false readings can be common due to the supporting medication I was on.

We were delighted to be told on 28th May that I was about 4.5 weeks pregnant. I simply couldnt believe it as it'd always thought I'd 'just know' when I was pregnant. I really thought I'd feel different or something. The clinic reassured us that it's quite common for other embryos not to be suitable for freezing and that also not everyone has strong pregnancy symptoms early on. In fact they stressed to us that every pregnancy is different & unique.

We returned to the clinic on 13th June and were delighted to meet our baby. We even got to hear her/his heartbeat!! It was a truly amazing moment and one that I'd almost given up hope of experiencing. Although two embryos were implanted I'm only growing one baby, but it's been confirmed that the pregnancy is developing normally and I'm now about 7 weeks.

I still haven't really had any symptoms. I feel a little hungrier than normal and suddenly find myself wanting spinach or cheese or avocado (although not altogether I must add!!!). These are foods that I enjoyed before pregnancy though so I wouldn't really call them cravings. There's still been no sickness and I only feel marginally more tired than normal. My abdomen is definitely expanding though (might be due to the increased hunger I guess!!) and I do get the odd twinge and this now feels different to period pains so I guess it must be the baby growing and developing.

My husband and I feel so blessed and grateful to all those wonderful people at our Fertility clinic who helped us and have our fingers and toes crossed that everything else goes smoothly from now on.

I wish everyone else on here all the luck and love in the world. Although no two ivf or pregnancy experiences are the same, I hope my experience helps some others of you out there xxxxxx

Hi

Ths is my first post and glad to read your post so close to mine. Ths is our first ivf (icsi) cycle. I had 7 eggs retrieved on Tuesday with 5 fertilising. 2 embryos were transferred today. I was to,d t other three were no suitable for freezing so feeling apprehensive about that. I am 38 so wasn't expecting as high rates as some younger mums to be. I was concerned about the splitting. My best embryo had split into 5. I know his is not top quality, but was told it wasn't poor either!!!  

It's going to be a long 2ww

Today wasmy late nanasbirhday so I'm oping she was looking down on me.  

Nope all goes well

I'm 42 and had a 3dt on Friday, 7/6, and now I'm on my 2ww. This was my 4th IVF cycle with success on my first attempt. I have a beautiful 5 yr old daughter.

Now that I'm older I was quite surprised that I'm still getting the same number of eggs, between 3-4 with 2 - 3 fertilizing. Actually, my Dr. got 4 this go round and 2 fertilized and were transferred day 3 (1 8 cell and 1 6 cell).

I was on bed rest for the first 2 1/2 day, so I was up and mobile during the late afternoon on Sunday, 7/8. I had mild cramps on 1 dpt and severe cramps during the late evening 2dpt.  The cramps were so bad and lasted about 10 - 15 minutes. I go for my first PT on Saturday and then a follow-up on Monday, 7/16.  I don't remember any of these symptoms with my daughter, but they say every pregnancy is different. I pray that I'm pregnant this time and I wish blessings to anyone going through this! Baby dust :)

What I did different this time:

1. Had a hysteroscopy (Dr. scrapped the uterus) Actually, I had this done on the 1st success IVF too. On the two failed attempts this procedure was not done.
2. Ate a low sugar high protein diet
3. No caffeine or artificial sweeteners
4. Did moderate exercise 5 times a week (45min - 1 hr of walking 4-5 d/week)
5. Tried to eat as much organic foods as possible
6. I ate pineapple, but only a couple of time after the transfer
7. Last, but definitely the most important, I prayed on it and put it in the hands of the Lord.

I don't think anyone has posted to this site in a while, but just in case someone comes along looking for info., I hope this helps.

Peace and blessings to all those that are in the struggle...

I just need a positive pregnancy even though it will not success after that. then I knw at least there are chances.. when the pain hits me im just scred to death thinking not again.. this is the worst thing in the life..
