How and when could you tell you were pergnant?

Postby livingroom » Sat Dec 27, 2008 1:21 am

Hi. I'm new to the website. I'm finding it so helpful. I am in my 2WW now and feeling no hope that the pregnancy test will be positive because I feel absolutely no symptoms. This is my third IVF attempt. :( I am wondering if you could tell me if any of you felt any symptoms this early? What were they? Thank you.

I think it is different for each person. I never had any early signs. Also you are/have been on different medication which can give you 'symptoms'. I think all you can do is wait which is torture I know!

Good Luck.

My first pg was with twins and I had absolutely no symptoms at all EVER. Now I am pg, naturally, and didn't know for 2 months because I had no symptoms again. With my irregular cycle I wasn't worried I was pg. So don't worry if you don't have any at all. Lots of women don't. I was worried at first too but try take it easy and stay super hopeful!

Good luck to you and I hope I see a BFP from ya! Baby dust coming your direction! :D

I just found out I was prego on the date you posted this. My first sign was sore breasts, they grew a cup size and I felt bloated. My IVF failed and I can't imagine going through three cycles, the last two weeks are the most agonizing. My breasts don't hurt anylonger, they are heavy and a bit larger than normal, no morning sickness, no nothing. I have miscarried before and I noticed my symptoms subsided when the babies died and I am so scared right now. Hope all is well...Best of luck to you.

I had no symptoms first 10 days before my test,in fact I was 95%positive it was BFN.I had no breast tenderness at all(it came later,around 6 weeks)and they did no t change in size,no cramps,my bloating went away on a day 5 after the transfer.I was shocked when my husband made me take a digital test(I was too scared too see bfn) and we saw "pregnant",I almost fell over.By the way, we had triplets at that point!
I've been pregnant 3 times before and always had some type of symptoms-but it was later in pregnancy(it was natural).
I know we expect to feel something on a second day after the transfer,but this is not the case.My last IVF pregnancy was different-I did have symptoms-metallic taste in my mouth,I was out of breath(but now I think it was a mild overstimulation from drugs) and extremely tired,my breasts were sore.Nothing like that this time.Go figure!

IVF#3-BFP,started w/tiplets,lost one at 7 weeks,lost a second at 15 weeks
Praying for a miracle baby to stay with us!

hi..everyone is different, but i had symptoms that could all be from the progesterone shots...sore breasts, sore butt, bloating, fatigue...

i didn't think i'd get a BFP and the faint line on the HPT was such a welcome site as you can imagine.

i didn't get any new symptoms until week 6-7 when i had nausea and meat aversions.

Then, no real symptoms until now at the end of the 2nd trim...everything at once...shortness of breath, fatigue...etc.

Try not to focus on symptoms as hard as it is...stay on these posts, but try to avoid reading the babies lost stuff as i often scared myself by reading too much...
