Is period pain normal?

Post by Bonnycat » Sat Mar 10, 2007 11:05 am

It seems everyone's asking similar questions - this 2WW is driving us all crazy and paranoid. I'm on day 6 and have stomach cramps and some spotting just like I am about to come on. If I hadn't just gone through the rigours of IVF I'd swear I was about to start my period. This can't be a good sign. Will someone be honest with me? :shock:

Hi Bonnycat - I am on my 2ww (day 9) of my second cycle. I got pregnant on my first cycle but miscarried at 6 weeks. I had implantation bleeding 11 days after egg collection on my last cycle which last three days and it started as light spotting and i really did think it was a period in the end as it was so heavy and i had to wear normal pads. Obvioulsy I thought the worst but then I was pregnant on the day of the rest!! Apparently, its just the embryos snuggling into the lining of the womb.

What day was your egg collection?

I am expecting some spotting maybe on monday now cos if i dont get any i will worry i'm not pregnant this time!!!!

Please try not to worry, every woman is different but i really think its a good sign.

Hi Cat,

Thanks for your words of reassurance. This is my first time and I just don't know what to expect so I really do appreciate hearing other people's experiences. I had 2 embies transferred on Monday 5th March so this is day 6 now. The egg collection was the previous Wednesday which would make this day 11.
Take care and good luck with your result.

There you go you are having the spotting on the same day i did so i would think positively cos the embryos seem to like you.

I wish you all the best with your treatment - please keep us all posted of your progress.

Is your pregnancy test on 19th March? Thats the day i test

Thanks again Cat, you've managed to keep my paranoia at bay for a while longer!
I've been told to have my blood test on Wednesday 14th March. It should really have been the 15th but the doc is recommending a day early so I can get to London if I am pregnant for further tests. Not too long to wait now!
I'll keep in touch - hope it'll be good news for us both!!
