2WW

Posted by tjluvbug , 12 April 2012 · 8936 views

Today I am 5dp5dt with two 6 day blasts of 3BB quality. With my first two fresh cycles having ended in a not so good way I'm really struggling with this FET 2ww. I decided that in order to keep track of this 2ww in more detail I thought I'd blog about what I've been going through so that should I have to go through this again I'll be able to compare notes.

Transfer Day:
  • Both blasts thawed with 100% cell retention, transfer went seamlessly. Drove the 4 hours home from the clinic after my post transfer acupuncture. Experienced some mild cramping and twinges post transfer. Spent the remainder of the day lying down and taking it easy.
1dp5dt:
  • Co-hosted easter dinner with my best friend. Tried to sit down as often as possible and rest with my feet up. Experienced 2 separate sharp stabbing pains that lasted about 10-15 seconds each on the right and left side of my lower abdomen around the ovaries. Also had some mild dull cramping off and on throughout the day. Quite emotional.
2dp5dt:
  • Had to work but because it was a stat I was able to spend the majority of it sitting down and putting my feet up whenever I could. Throughout the whole day I had constant dull aching in my lower abdomen with radiating pain down my legs. Got home from work and got a lovely lower back massage by DH. I wanted more than anything to put some heat on my uterus but was told nope!
3dp5dt:
  • Cramping almost completely subsided except for the occasional twinge. First onset of dizziness and lightheadedness but only when standing. Experienced some mild nausea when hungry. Early morning waking (3am & 4am) and unable to go back to sleep). BBT was 98.6 and my normal temp is 97.4.
4dp5dt:
  • no cramping, mild twinges. Feeling dizzy off and on when standing and nausea. Hot flushes. Very tired throughout the day.Tired early in the evening, fell asleep as soon as my head hit the pillow and had early morning waking with the feeling of having slept forever. This is completely different for me because I am an excellent sleeper but normally takes me a bit to get to sleep. Hot flushes while sleeping (sweating). BBT was 98.4. HPT neg using late afternoon urine....too soon???
5dp5dt:
  • No cramping at all this morning; BBT checked midday at 98.2. Nausea peaked and I almost threw up on the floor in Costco for no reason; Very tired despite getting 10 hours sleep. Mild AF like cramping returned after lunch. Put heat on my back because it was aching, seemed to subside for the most part. Very emotional and tearful, burst into tears watching a baby commercial. Negative thinking. Feeling very warm throughout the day. Checking breasts constantly for tenderness as this has happened with every other cycle BFP or BFN and nothing, not even mild sensitivity.
Just a question for anyone reading this, my FET transfer happened on CD21, does this seem late to other people? My cycle was medicated so I logically know that they hijacked my cycle, my lining on day 16 was 11mm and I showed 1 15mm follicle on my left ovary which prompted my transfer 5 days later. I'm just wondering when I should expect AF to show if this is a BFN cycle. Progesterone has never held AF off for me before so I don't expect it to this time either. Currently taking 2mg estrace 2x daily and 200mg prometrium 3x daily.




I do feel mild twinges as well, lets see how will it go
good luck and thanks again
I enjoyed reading your blog, good idea keeping record of all that's happening! Its interesting that I am 5dp5dt and a lot of the symptoms you've described, I've been feeling too.

I just wanted to mention that the first time I did IVF, prometrium did not hold off AF, but when I did my FET, AF wouldn't show up until I stopped the prometrium. it isn't always reliable. so from my own experience there was no way of predicting when AF would come.

Today is 3dp5dt and I woke up around 5 AM in a sweat but was freezing! Did you ever experience this? I tossed and turned all night.
Oh yes, I've definitely had that but for the most part I have felt much more warm than usual. I'm normally a curl up in a blanket on the couch to watch TV and right now I am so warm that I'm wearing a tank top.
tjluvbug : when was your transfer? Because I noticed our BETA day is the same (April 19). I did my transfer on Sunday April 8, and I'm not sure if I am counting correctly. Does Sunday get counted as day 1 post transfer?
I had some cramping around this time. For my previous cycle I saw some pink on applicator on 7dp5dt and 8dp5dt (FET). It was beginning on my AF. This time I so pink on 5dp5dt and all girls here convinced me it was implantation. I dropped the idea about POAS this cycle until 8dp5dt. On 8dp5dt I finally decided to POAS because I was completely hopeless at that point. I was ready 100% for the negative response and got Very dark 2 lines! Got completely by surprise! Had a red bleed right before my first beta. Hang is there...

Today is 5dp5dt and I made the stupid mistake to test at home and it was negative. I do know now that the HCG from the trigger shot is out of my system. I'm hoping it's too early but I'm also having negative thoughts today as well but hubby is trying to keep my spirits high. I have low back pain and some mild cramping. My breats are tender and nipples are extremely sensitive. (Sorry to be so blunt) I'm only taking progesterone vaginally and a prenatal pill at night.

Any thoughts/input?
Hey ladies, I had my transfer on May 17. I noticed you are passed your 2ww and I enjoyed your documentation on what happen during that time. I am sitting around waiting for so sign. Can you update me as to what your results were.
