Hi Lauren,
Are you on PIO or the suppositories? My last FET I had pink spotting before my transfer and I called my nurse and she said that it's very common since I was using suppositories because they can irritate you. Obviously since I didn't even have my transfer yet I knew what she was saying was right. After my transfer I had it happen again so I was prepared for it and I didn't freak out. I also was doing PIO, and this was my first cycle of ever doing both, and It caused me really bad cramping.
I wish I could tell you what it is for sure, but I would just assume it was from your meds.
If it continues tomorrow I would call your RE just to let them know, but I have a feeling they will tell you not to worry, and spotting is normal. Easy for them to say right??
Try to relax ok? keep your feet up, and stop checking the T.P., it's only going to irritate things more, and drive you totally crazy! When is your beta?
I'm sending you tons of sticky vibes sweetie!! xoxoxo
Oh, and run away from crazytown!! :wink:

oh Franny, you know me so well. How many times have I looked at my TP and looked at my pantyliner. Oh man. I'm LOSING IT.

I have done the suppositories every time and never had spotting, but this time I'm doing PIO and Endometrin, which as you said, may explain the cramping?!

It's so scary I know!! It's just a constant worry about what's going on down there. I'm so sorry. Dumb spotting!! I'm sure a bunch of gals here will jump in and say they had spotting at the same time and got a BFP because it is very common with IVF so please don't lose hope! As for the cramping I was on pio and endometrin last cycle too, and it was the only time I had really bad cramping. I thought it was a good sign at first since I never had it before, but again...it was all the meds playing evil mind games. Please tell me your beta is soon? Oh, and my cramping started 7dp5dt too!
I have everything crossed for you mama!! xoxo

Lauren I had that at 12 dpo and it was bad cramps with brown pink spotting at times increasing to what I was sure was my period but it was the baby implanting! I remember that so well and my cramps were bad too....this may be a really good sign. I would let your RE know. When is ur beta?

Anna - I really hope it's a good sign and that I don't start bleeding. I can't handle this. I'm going in on Saturday morning now.

Lauren - got everything crossed for great news tomorrow. I used endometrin 3x a day and had light pink spotting and cramping. The nurse said it was very common because it can irritate the cervix. I found if I inserted them without the applicator, the cramping was much less. Good luck and I'm cheering for you hun!

Lauren-I'm so pulling for you! If I remember your wording correctly, you are inserting something "up your nana", right??? That could totally cause spotting!!!! I'm keeping everything crossed that you get great news tomorrow!

Chris said it exactly! Just remember that cramping and spotting is common especially when you're taking suppositories. I'm stalking and have everything crossed that this is the one! Good Luck honey! Just two more days til beta - you can do this!- xoxo

I'm so crazy. I just cried from all the support you guys are giving me. Thank you so much.

The spotting stopped, so DH and I have decided to wait until Sunday to get a better read.
