July Ann - you keep your pecker up girl - the 3rd June is going to be a major testing day for a few of us and hopefully we'll all get the + 'ves we are praying for :D

I don't have any symptoms at all - this is my first 2ww and apart from being ever so tired 3 days after ET and a couple of twinges - NOTHING, NADA, ZERO, ZILCH ........... !

Bron - 10th June and 8 cell embies - good on ya girl. Really pleased for you hun - you have worked so hard for this :wink:

Well another day nearly over - my DP is laughing his head off lately coz I seem to be going to bed earlier and earlier - the thought of another day over quicker I suppose!

Hi Girls,

Well only 6 more days to go for me (and some of us). Nickie & July Ann, like you, since the first 3 days I've not felt anything, just tender boobs. No more twinges or anything - but then I don't think we would anyway. The danger is as you feel so well that you over do it. I'm back to work, getting stressed and doing normal things - so who knows what will happen.

Bron - so pleased you are now on your 2ww - 8 cells are brill - I only had 2 4 cells but they said they were good one?

Anyway, at least its a long weekend to do a bit more relaxing in.

Have great weekends girls
Love

3 more days to go for me! Roll on Monday.
I feel positive today. :) :) Had a good night sleep and felt nauseas this morning! Is it too soon for that to be morning sickness?? :?

Anyway all will be revealed soon enough. How are you going Christina? Are you going to test on Monday or wait until the 7th? Do you have a positiva attitude or like me up and down. DH is great, yesterday when I was feeling negative he was telling me it isn't over until we test and it has every chance of being positive. Today when I am feeling positive and getting a bit excited he is telling me to calm down as it may be negative. He is doing a great job of balancing me out! I just wish he could balance out the housework!

We are all coming up for testing soon and I hope we all have our dreams come true. My mum has been ringing everyday (from Oz) just to check up that AF hasn't arrived.

Fingers crossed for us all.

Hi all,

Glad everyone is keeping well. Shellie I am Trying to keep a positive attitude but at the same time keeping a level head if you know what i mean. I feel good though, apart from agonosing boobies & nipples....ouch!
I was nervous yesterday as it was AF day but thankfully no signs, knicker checking constantly. Also belly a bit bloated.

I am not going to test until Wednesday, keeping the dream alive, I feel its been two weeks then, instead of Monday. But who knows that may change also, nothing definate on this emotional ride. Feeling positive though & all will be well.

Will be thinking of you Monday :)

Hope everyone else is okay, thinking of you all :)

Thanks Traci, keep the lucky candel burning for me please. I need all the hope I can get.

I am eager and reluctant to test on Monday. Like you christina I want to keep the dream alive but I also want to know. All very confusing. Good omen that your af hasn't started. Fingers crossed. Sharon, Nickie, Julyann and Bron, how is the 2ww going? I never thought two weeks could be so long. Wish my holidays went as slow as this!

I have jam packed my weekend to make it go fast.
Best wishes to us all

Shellie - have posted a separate post but just wanted to wish you all the best for your test tomorrow - will eagerly await your update!

This has to be the longest 2 weeks - but after today only 3 more days to go - I was naughty last night and had 2 glasses of red - am I really bad :roll: - it's just so hard not knowing and also the fact that no-one knows so they think it's a bit weird when it's BH weekend and I am on Cranberry Juice so I have to keep them off the scent a bit don't I :wink: (well that's my excuse anyway) ............ had a terrible night's sleep last night - was awake from 3am (guilty conscience maybe) ........

Well, hope you are all ticketyboo. Big hugs,

hi girls

so much is happening this week. Good luck to every one who is testing soon. Have just got back from the beach had a great walk, took my mind of things for a while. I have been so moody over the last few day's. My poor dh can not say a thing right. I normally get a bit of pmt before af but not this bad. Still have af pains so do not hold out much hope.

well it's not over yet.

july ann

I wouldn't worry about the wine Nickie. They say a little bit can not hurt. I went to a friends for dinner last night but they know I'm in the middle of IVF treatment and didn't make a big deal of me drinking Schloer. That's me faking my wine!

Julyann, I have had cramps from the day I had EC they couldn't have been AF that soon so maybe it is a good sign?

Hope everyone is enjoying the lovely weather on this bank holiday weekend.

Hi everyone,

Hope you are all enjoying the long weekend. Hasn't the weather been great.

Shellie- wishing you all the luck in the world for tomorrow, I will be thinking of you & will say a special prayer for you tonight.

I too have jam packed the weekend so time doesn't drag. Had the red arrow air show yesterday, AMAZING.Those planes are superb & as I live in Blackpool & the good weather made a brilliant day.
Today, went to Manchester for the day so another day down. I am sticking with my decision to test on Wednesday, although the hospital told me June 7th but thats 3 weeks, even though I am dying to do it. I am feeling positive though even more so cos AF has not arrived but don't want to get too excited just yet.

Hope all you 2ww are making the most of relaxing & best wishes to you all. :)

Good luck to everyone else on treatment :)

Loadsa Hugs to all of you

OK guys - I have to tell you I am in a totally negative mood today and even bought tampons in Tesco's (AF has not arrived yet but then the consultant said it would be approx 2 weeks from EC which makes that tomorrow) :evil: ......... I have got no symptoms whatsoever now (not even tender breasts) ....... and I have resigned myself for a BFN for Thursday!

I am also back to work later today which is not helping my stress levels - even thinking of going back to work makes me stressy - hopefully it will make the time go a bit quicker though :roll:

Sorry to put a dampner on things but I am really fed up today - when my DP asks how I am I say "fine - in fact a little too fine for my liking"! Oh well, lets get to Thursday ..........

Love to all

Took a break from the boards for the weekend, did hardly anything except move from the lounger in the shade in the garden to the sofa, read lots of book and every paper under the sun. Felt a few things on Sat but since the nothing. Still got quite a way to go but I'm back working today but its only one day in the office and I'll do some from home for the rest of the week.

Glad to see everyone holding on , NICKIE even you its not over until the fat lady sings........................................your just depressed about going back to work :( which honestly is natural.


Shellie not a peep from you yet ,thinking good thoughts.Wishing you all a stress free few days ???? .................................ok maybe not stress free but at least be alive along with your DH at the end of it.
