Just wondering if anyone else has bad back pain during 2ww? I am 6dpFET, my 6th IVF attempt. I have been having low back pain since about day 2 post transfer. It feels kind of similar to back associated with AF. I have not had this with my previous cycles. I am trying not t read too much into symptoms good or bad, because I know that at this point most symptoms are from meds, but just sort of curious since I have not had this before. I am also having some mild cramping/pulling in lower abd that have not had before. Anyone with similar symtoms during 2ww have BFP??????
Thanks for your input!!! Baby Dust to all!!!!

Thank goodness I found your post. I am currently 3dp3dt and starting having lower back pain today. It is similar to what I typically get with AF but it is far to early for that. I am like you, I've been though many IVF attempts (this is my 8th) and I don't recall lower back pain at this stage (usually I get it right before my AF arrives on test day).
How did your cycle go this time?
7 IVF cycles - 2 chemicals, 5 BFN
1 FET cycle - BFN
9th IVF cycle - BFP!! Twins born Sept 18/08
Trying again May 2010!!!

I'm 3dp5dt and I had terrible lower back ache 2 days ago. I also had cramping most of the day yesterday and mildly on and off today. My bb were tender already from the various drugs but today my nipples are very tender also. I don't know how much of this is relevant and how much of it is me wanting to feel some symptoms cause this is my first time (IVF with ICSI, 2 blasts). I have been pregnant before but didn't know until AF was late, so I guess its also possible to make it to beta with no symptoms.......I don't know, I'm going CRAZY!!! I need to take my mind off this somehow.....but how?????? Aaaaaaaaaaarrrrgh

I am 4dp3dt and I have had lower back pain all week. I just assumed since I was on bedrest, that maybe it was my mattress or the way I was laying. Maybe it's a good sign for all of us.

I also have back pain which started afew days ago. and this is my day 7. It has been there all day and you are right it feels as if AF. For me usually I get back pain after I have stated AF. So I don't know what's going on. I think its very much to take on especially when you desparately need that BFP so much.
Good luck my dear because we all need it. And try to destruct yourself if you can because you need your energy.
Starting to send these posts has helped me today, it is therapeutic. Am writing about my problems but actually I don't feel the pain so that means am forgetting about it, except of course, when I leave this forum and then it will come back .
Just hang in there dear.
