Cramping

Morning ladies!! 

Feeling weird today.  I had my transfer last Saturday so I'm 5(or 4)dp5dt, I don't know if you count day of as the first day?!

Anyhow, I'm have AF-like cramping that is freaking me the :censor: out!  Trying to ride it out and hoping that it's nothing, IF like to eff with my mind and I'm very intune to everything happening right now!  Has anyone experienced this?

I hate you 2WW!!! Angry

IVF #1= BFP- M/C
FET- Beta#1: 69, #2: 482, #3: 1088, #4: 28,318, Ultrasound- 1 beautiful heartbeat

Re: Cramping

  • ME!!! I have had AF-type cramping on and off since transfer day. Today I am 11dp3dt and having some cramping now. I agree, it is freaking me out too! Obsessing on the internet has informed me that cramping can happen with both BFNs and BFPs. I have not POAS so hoping I make it to beta Fri without AF showing her ugly face. FX this is a good sign for us both!

  • Hi Ladies!

     *****Ticker Warning*****

     

     

     

     

     

    I was in the same boat last week. At first I had no cramping after ET and I was upset that it meant it didn't work (I had read online that cramping is a good sign). Well then starting at 3dp5dt, I started cramping. I got excited, but then the cramping continued and got worse - more like menstrual cramping. So then I was upset again because I was 99% sure that my period was about to start and didn't have high hopes for my beta. I ended up getting my BFP at 8dp5dt and was in total shock (didn't POAS). My cramps continued until this past Monday. I still get some off and on, but not too bad. I've heard that cramping can be a normal part of pregnancy for some folks.

    I'm hoping these cramps are a good sign for you ladies. Good luck and hang in there!

    My PIO shots have been killer the last few days so maybe I will blame them. They're leaving welps on me.  This morning I sneezed when my DH gave me my shot.  That was lovely. Stick out tongue

    I did email my IVF nurse asking her if I should be concerned and she said it was "completely normal".  So I'm going to believe her....for now.

    Jealous of your beta on Monday--- mines on Wednesday.  I was going to test prior but the hubs was not on board with tha,t so I'll wait it out.
