recently had IVF.. now the waiting

IVF friends: Wondering what you felt during the 2 weeks of waiting.. any cramping, breast soreness, moodiness? I am 1 week in(one more to go until my blood test) I feel like I am PMSing today(very emotional, tired, headache). Also the Dr said I would have a "full' feeling in my ovaries on Thur or Fri and I did not. I have had some mild cramping but not how he described. Should I give up hope yet?

Re: recently had IVF.. now the waiting

  • Cramping from the ovaries is caused by the retrieval. It did not happen all the time with me either. I think I had it on my first, but not from my other 2.

    As for symptoms, progesterone can be causing a lot of them. 

    I felt like I felt every other failed cycle when I got my BFP - so hang in there. I did not get any pregnancy symptoms until about 10 weeks pregnant. 

    A lot of years and a million tears finally led me to you.
    After 7 years trying to concieve, 3 failed IUIs and 2 failed IVFs, my third IVF was a success!
    My Christmas baby turned into a turkey bird! Dillon Richard was born at 34 weeks, 5 days on November 28, 2009 after 10 weeks on bedrest for preeclampsia.

  • thanks for the response! I am actually spotting today. I think my period is about here. Did you spot at all for your BFP? and for the other ones too?

    ps. CONGRATS on the pregnancy;)

  • Are you on suppositories? If so, that can cause a bit of spotting from irritation of the cervix
