Re: TWW post (week of 11/30 - 12/6)

  • 7 DPO here. No symptoms to speak of, and I can't tell if I really feel like I might be pregnant or if I'm just telling myself that. 7 more long days to wait. Well. Longer, really, because I don't want to test until AF is a few days late if I can help myself. Good thing it's a busy week ahead. Hopefully that will help time pass more quickly.

  • Hey @sporty1216 ! 7dpo here too! Here's to a quick week! :)

    I'd stopped temping past 3-4dpo in past months so I haven't seen a full cycle of temps for a while. Decided to keep temping this cycle and my temp went up a bit today. I'm not going to get my hopes up though as they were way too high last month and i was crushed when af came early. I'll keep temping and see what happens - I always know when I'm not pg as my temp used to start going down at 8dpo and be pretty close to coverline at 10dpo. We'll see. 

    Good luck to everyone else in the tww!

  • I'm 11dpo. I haven't tested yet and had H hide all of my HPTs so that I'm not tempted to test early. Will be testing on Thursday, which will be 14dpo. It still seems so far away!!!

    I don't have many symptoms. Breasts are a little sore/full, cramps here and there, feeling a bit tired, moody, emotional...but these have all become normal luteal phase things (on the cycles I actually O) so who knows. I don't "feel" pregnant. I don't know why the 2ww makes you lose all hope but somehow it does.

    Fingers crossed we get some more BFPs soon ladies!!!

  • @jilligan14 - I do the same thing with DH hiding my hpt's. :) Way too tempting. Also - the times I had the least - or no symptoms - were the times I ended up pg, so hopefully your lack of symptoms is a good sign.

  • I am at the end of my tww. Betas getting drawn this morning. Eek! Not sure which way it will go. This our third ivf transfer. One was a bfp w/ early loss the second a bfn. My symptoms are somewhere in between this time. Plus w the progesterone shots you can't really read into them. So we will see... Keeping everything crossed.

    Good luck everyone!

  • @dolphin012 good luck!

    I am 8DPO and wondering how the 2WW keeps getting longer and longer and loooonnnger. Blah! I am feeling much less PMS being on Vitex this cycle which is really really nice. I am better able to keep the SS under control when I don't have PMS stuff to over obsess about. I spent the past couple hours cruising cyber monday deals...baaaaahhhh I need to get off the computer and start my day! 
    Good luck everyone!

  • Well results are back and sad to report my beta came back negative. This was our last ivf transfer so we are a bit sad right now. :(    

    Knowing this was our last transfer, leading into we started to discuss what the next step would be if needed (no decision, just discussion). Anyway i will share more later, but for now we need to let these results fully sink in. I am the positive, move-forward, problem solving type so will bounce back. But we just watched Inside Out this past week, and it is a good reminder for me that time for sadness is important, too.

  • Oh, I'm so sorry. My heart just dropped into my stomach for you....

    I just watched Inside Out too, and you're right--sadness is an important part of things. I hope and pray that you and your DH will be able to process this, grieve it, and come together around the next step, whatever that may be. Take care of yourself.

  • So sorry to read your news, @dolphin012. Sometimes life just knows how to knock the wind out of your sails. Be kind to yourself and take all the time you need to grieve.

  • I'm so sorry, @dolphin012.  Thank you for sharing your experiences with us and I'm so incredibly sad for you and your family.  It does give me hope that you are already thinking of the future and what your next steps will be.  Wishing you the best and thinking of you.

  • I'm so sorry, @dolphin012. I hope you feel much love and support as you take the time you need to feel sad. When you're feeling ready I hope you'll share more about what comes next.
    dolphin012
  • @dolphin012 I am so so very sorry. :(
    Words are shit right now.
    Please keep us posted and take the time you need to grieve. I can't even imagine what you're feeling. I sometimes wish we were all in person so we could collapse into the support physically if we needed to.
    I wish I could be there for you in that way, right now. I'm so sorry. Xoxoxoxoox
