Embarrassing Question - please help

Postby shantala » Sat Aug 18, 2007 1:54 pm

hi all

i'm currently on the second week of my 2ww (2nd IVF) and i suffer from IBS (irritabel bowel syndrome). i've managed to get my condition under control over the years and have not had terrible pains for years. however, the last couple of days i've been getting bad stomach pains (as well as backache, my bloated belly came back yesterday and ive had troubel breating). today the stomach pains have gotten really bad so i've been praying its constipation and not AF on her way. anyway, luckily enough have just been able to go to the toilet but the pains were excruciating. something ive not experienced in years.

has anyone else had such trouble with constipation during their 2ww and still gotten a BFP?? really worried.....

thanks in advance!

I didn't experience that, but I had a thought. On top of your IBS that you have do you think nerves could be doing it to you? When I am nervous, anxious or worried about something I get a lot of those symptoms. And the 2ww is nothing less than the most nerve wracking thing we ever have to go through!

I hope you get some relief and good luck on getting a BFP!
