Hello Bel,<br>I sympathise with you about the very long 2 week wait - it certainly seems like an eternity. <br>I was advised NOT to take an earlier pregnancy test - as it is unreliable because of the timing and also because of the progesterone pessaries. Although I was told to test 14 days post et - you seem to be a bit longer than this.<br>It seems all the girls on the board agree that the 2ww is absolutely the most difficult time of the whole cycle. <br>So just try to keep calm, rest as much as you can, and keep positive. <br>I am sending you lots of happy thoughts - all of them pregnant!!!<br>Wishing you lots of luck<br>Let us know how you get on Monday.<br>Lots of Love<br>Lorraine. xxx<br>

Hi Bel<br>The 2ww is the hardest part - I know as I'm on it! Lorraine is correct, you seem to have an awful long wait - I had e/t one day before you, 13th June and I test this Friday 27th - which will be 15 days. Yours actually works out to 17. It may be worth checking with the hospital if you can test at the w/e. <br>I have started spotting so I don't think I will have good news - but still trying to be positive.<br>Lots of luck.<br>Love Michelle x

thanks michelle and lorraine u have been a great help only the hospital also said not to use a home pregnancy test as this generally does not pick up the hormones so early in pregnancy, i live a fair way from the hospital so i am having to send my sample in to them so i wont have result until weds, i will let u know on weds how i get on.. michelle good luck for friday hope everything works out just fine for you.. let me know how it goes my thoughts will be with u.. also do u generally have a period in the 2ww if your not pregnant.. i have only had like period pains so far but every twinge i think period.. this is so stressful i havent slept since et my stomach is in knots.. take care bel x
