Hi Nicola,<br><br>I was hoping that you would have done the test as my symptoms are exactly the same as yours. Boobs no longer sore & very minor twinges no spotting. Only other symptoms have been my usual monthly craving for chocolate, headaches & 3 spots. Do you not have to go back to the clinic for your test? I'm due to go back to bupa on Friday for blood & urine test. <br><br>Fingers crossed for us both<br><br>Sue<br>x<br><br>

Hi Sue<br><br>No, we're just given a pregnancy test kit by them, to do at home, then call them with results. I think the next step would be an early scan, can't remember what week, having never got that far before.<br>My clinic is the Cromwell in London, so I have to do a 1.30hr journey each time, so it's not exactly convenient to pop in, not forgetting taking time off work.<br><br>Anyway - day 16 and still no signs of AF - I forgot to mention I did have some twinges in my ovaries and headaches over the last few days. Don't normally get headaches, but it might just be the stress of thinking about it!<br><br>I couldn't sleep last night, thinking - what if this is it. I've never let myself get carried away before, but thought what the hell. Anyway, I really am getting anxious now, so I'm definitely going to do it tomorrow, whether DH is around or not. Oh well, I shall enjoy my last night of positive thinking.<br><br>Good luck for your test tomorrow as well!<br><br>N x <br><br>
TTC 8 yrs. Me 35, DH 52. 1st IVF eggs didn't fertilise, sperm couldn't get through shell. 2nd & 3rd ICSI got embryos but -ve. 1st FET +ve with twins, '1 disappeared' at 9 wks. One baby due 9th April.

Hi Vikki,<br><br>I started with brown spotting the day before i was due to test so was in shock when tested positive. Im still spotting now & the spotting is now red & like yourself is very light & comes & goes, also had some period like pains. My hcg level was 100 on friday had another blood test on Monday as I was still spotting and my hcg level was then 250. Although it had risen it is not rising quite fast enough. Im waiting for a call today when the nurse has spoken to the consultant so presume will have to go back for another test. Also had water infection.<br><br>It really is quite worrying.<br><br>Good luck with your test.<br><br>Sue<br>x

Hi Sue,<br><br>How many embies did they put in? How are you feeling? I was pregnant last year and carried full term but unfortunaltey my baby was stillborn but at the beginning i had period pains and went to the loo evey five minutes to check that i haven't come on. Although i didn't it really felt like i was going to - the midwives said this is really normal. Take it easy....some people have this and are absolutley fine...don't worry too much. i'll keep my fingers crossed for you.<br><br>Please keep me posted.<br><br>Vikki<br>x<br><br>[Edited by Vikki Bat on 09-Oct-02 17:23]

Hi Vikki,<br><br>I only had 6 follies which were large enough 1 @ 24, 4 @ 17 and 1 @13 of which there was only 4 eggs only 2 fertilized. So I had 2 Embryos transfered both of which were 2 cells.<br>My cycle was nearly cancelled due to the poor response.<br><br>I'm still spotting but not as bad. How long did your spotting last?<br><br>Sorry to hear about your past experience my sister went through the same in June of this year it really is devastating and must have taken you a lot of courage to try again.<br><br>All the best<br><br>Sue<br>x<br>

Hi ladies<br><br>Spent some time in the chat room with you last night, and today I have joined you all in the 2ww. Had 3 embies put in this morning, 1x2 cell, 1x3 cell and 1x4 cell - seeing them under the microscope was amazing.<br><br>Clinic have advised to take the next 2 weeks off, but it depends on how stircrazy I get. Any advice on what to do/what not to do during these 2 weeks?<br><br>Who was that weirdo in the chatroom last night - how sick is that?<br><br>Good luck and keep smiling to all those out there going through this!<br>Love<br>Lucy<br>xx
