hi and welcome

yes the 2 ww is terrible- but you can do it!!! stay away from the HPTs (home pregnancy tests) and make sure angela rests as much as possible these 2st few days-
every little twinge seems to beg the question, is that a good feeling or a bad feeling? All I can say is that this time is tough, and I hope you'll get your BFP.

Dh and I are blessed to have gotten our BFP on our 1st IVF try, but even after the 2ww, each week seems to be another waiting game - the 2nd beta, the 1st U/S and more!

enjoy your time this next 14 days - rest, then next week, make sure to occupy your time with nice stuff, movies, dinners, the park....anything to take your mind off the wait and the what ifs -

good luck to you both

baby karma coming your way!

Good luck and I hope you get a BFP!
I had my first IVF with ICSI and we got a BFP and one strong heartbeat!
Don't POAS!!!!!!!!
Don't overanalize the symptoms either, some people have them and some don't!
3 embies is great!
