2 week wait, how is everyone feeling?

Postby Amandah2013 » Fri May 10, 2013 1:05 am

Hi my name is Amanda,
I have been going through fertility treatment for about two years now. My husband and I started trying a few months after we got married and had no luck for a year and then went into the doctor to see if we could get answers and help. We have so far done 9 IUI's and are now currently going through out second ivf. This cycle was are FET. They put two embryos in, one looked really good while the other wasn't inflating ( the way the doc put it) like they wanted it to. I started having cramps before my FET and continue to have cramps. I try not to worry but it's hard not too! I have my BT on the 13th, basically I just would like to get to know some women going through the same thing. I have no sisters and have 5 sister in laws who have a total of 12 grandkids between them and three on the way ( seems like one is always finding out there pregnant, happy for them but of course it makes it that much harder to not be sad about not having our own. SORRY!! Life story,, lol just need someone to chat with, thanks ladies! <3

Amanda- You are welcome to join us on the 2013 thread. They are a great group of ladies and willing to give all the support you need. I wish you the best of luck in this FET. All it takes is one. Many ladies have had great success with FETs since the body is much calmer and you do not have to deal with OHS. Hope to hear from you soon.

Cristie is absolutely right, I had success on my very first FET and I think it was bc my body wasn't in trama from the retrieval. I was like you though, doubtful and even gave up before my doctor called me with the news...I couldn't stand to see another negative test so I had promised Michael I wouldn't test early. But when he called me I was in disbelief that is actually worked. My thoughts are never give up on your dreams, timing is everything. Yes please join us over on the 2013 board. We would love to have you! Christy

Thank you both for the encouraging words! I was really sick after my egg retrieval in the hospital and most likely should have waited to do my first transfer. Thanks again and I will join your Thread! :)

Hello everyone,
I feel like I'm loosing my mind right now. This 2ww is driving me bonkers. I'm trying not to lash out at my family but the stress of the unknown is starting to be to much. I don't have much longer to wait for my FPT which is on the 22nd but we have been on this journey for almost 10 years.

AMANDA: did you mean "blood test" when you said "BT" was on the 13th? I got confused hen later you were talking about egg retrieval... If you are pregnant, I wanted to say I have cramps too and I got them a few years ago with my first pregnancy. Everything was fine! I did a year of IUIs with no success, then finally IVF which is how I have my 2.5 year old boy. Last month I did my first FET and my pregnancy tests (Beta?) have been positive with good numbers. I hope things go well for you!

EBONY: sorry this is such a hard wait for you. I seem to be able to turn off the negative cant wait feelings pretty well. It helps that I am so busy I simply have my mind distracted. Every once in a while I think of the bad possibilities and start freaking out a little, so I try to push those out and think positively. Good luck. :/

I am married for 12 years, age 37years, had 4 iui's and 2 ICSI's with no success.

This is my third IVF cycle, had 2 embryos transferred on May 15 2013 - it was a 5 day blast, doctors told that my embryos looked good. I too had cramps every now and then -my blood test is on May24-2013, but today I had little spotting of blood and I feel that by tomorrow morning I will have my periods.
Its very difficult for me to overcome this pain, i dont know what to do, I feel so lonely.
Just wanted to share with someone.
Good luck to all
