Hello everyone! I am new to this site and am hoping to get some support as all of us are going through some challenges getting pregnant! I am on my 2ww from a FET. This is my second IVF using a donor. Thie frist time around, we transferred two embryos, but failed. This time around the 3 remaining embryos successfully thawed! I am so happy, but am still anxious. My pregnancy test is Tuesday, Aug 16th! I will let you all know what happens. I have a question...when taking the estrogen suppositories before the transfer, my breasts were heavy and throbbing! A few days after the transfer, and taking the progesterone shots, my breasts stopped hurting! Is this a bad sign?
Thanks for the 411!

Hi and welcome to the site, good luck with your test on the 16th

Why don't you pop across to the General Forum, there are lots of others who are currently on their 2ww and you can swap stories with them. There is also a test dates thread for August which if you want Sand can add your name to.

As far as symptoms go, I wouldn't read anything into any symptoms or lack of them, some people have lots of symptoms and get a +ve, some people have none and also get a +ve. Just try and stay relaxed till the 16th - not long to go now!

Hi, like Joanne mentioned, the symptoms play havoc with us. They can be anything and everything or nothing at all. Doesn't seem to make any difference to the end result - which is a killer, a few clues along the way would help manage expectations or prepare for the big :D

The 2ww thread is full of like-minded women so hop in and chat to help pass the waiting. It does drag so s-l-o-w-l-y!
