Yay, lou71, you're PUPO!!!
For my 2ww, I started off having some cramping on and off for the first 5-6 after ET, BUT I was having cramping and sore boobs even BEFORE I got to ET because of the progesterone, so I think that really doesn't count as a symptom! After 5-6 days post-ET, I started to feel totally normal again, so no cramping and no sore boobs (and in fact I still do feel normal) but I still got my BFP on New Years Day. The only thing, looking back, which I would say was probably a symptom is that every so often (starting on the day of ET itself) I got lightheaded/dizzy sometimes when I stood up (my acupuncture lady told me it was as a result of all the blood flow concentrating in my uterus).
My clinic doesn't do betas anymore but tells you to test at home on 18dpo (which would have been 13dp5dt). On the subject of POAS, I looked at katie99's chart and decided not to test until I got to the day when the HCG level would be immediately detected, so that either way the result should be definitive. In fact, thanks to DH not wanting to tempt fate, I even waited a few days more than that, and so when I tested on 12dp5dt (New Years Day!) and AF still hadn't arrived, I kind of suspected that it might have worked.
Good luck to you in your 2ww, try not to drive yourself crazy analysing symptoms or lack of symptoms, they really don't mean anything either way! When is your beta?
