Thank you all for the words of ressurance. There has been no spotting since test day although I still get cramps on and off. I'm trying not to get too excited but it's hard!

Thank you

Positive HPT today, but some spotting - reassurance please

I am on progesterone suppositories, I'm so scared something is wrong. This is our 4th and last attempt. My hospital don't do blood tests and I don't have a scan unti...

Hi Hayley I also test next Thursday and the wait is driving me mad too! I'm trying to analyse every single thing I feel! I had 2 grade 1 embies put back on day 3. I have watched Season 2 and Season 3 of 24 to try and take my mind off things. Good luck to you! Let me know how you are keeping! Charlie x

Hi Hayley

I had 19 eggs collected on monday and I had 12 ferts - I have had 2 embies put back today so am now on the dreaded 2ww.

9 ferts is great - as I'm sure you have heard before - it only takes one!
Good luck in getting your BFP!

Hi Angela

I asked the exact same question to my consultant and he said it was completely normal, and not to worry because enough is getting to where it should be! Good luck with your BFP - I have had transfer today so have just started the dreaded 2ww!

Hi Traci!

I'm afraid I can't really help with your question as I have not had my BFP yet, but I know that embies do better when they are back inside mommie! Try not to worry! Sending you sticky baby dust!
