In the beginning of taking progesterone and estrogen I had really mild symptoms that would normally be related to pregnancy. But I am now 7dp5dt and my breasts are getting really heavy, sense of smell is heightened with food aversion that makes me want to vomit.

Is this just because the hormones I'm taking? But why all of a sudden are the symtoms amped up?

Maybe I'm just going crazy.... giggle.gif

Hi Yes, it is the Progesterone that mimics pregnancy symptoms.  I had the same symptoms as you did last week and I am now on day 10dp,5dt.  I took at pregnancy test on the 6th day and had a faint line I took one on day 9, yesterday and today and both BFP.  I am however still experiencing a bit of breast tenderness, some cramping on and off and just bloating my stomach is huge!! 

Hang in there just a few more days!! All the best!!

Always seem to be munching on something, but meat seems to gross me out right now.

In my 2ww as well. 10dp3dt today. Is this ever a long 2 weeks! Beta is only on Thursday (so a real 14 days post transfer...).


Breasts really sore, and very bloated as well... I no longer like any of my pants or bras, they all seem too tight! I don't think I gained weight per say, just really feeling bloated. Since yesterday (but much more today) I'm getting weird twinges around where I imagine my uterus would be. Not cramping, more sharp, almost like a pinching in my uterus - actually feels kind of similar to the feeling of ovaries stretching from ovulation/stims, except really midline, I don't feel it on the sides... anyone else have anything like this? Other than that I'm just really tired, and moody (anxious/easily tearful, but I imagine this could just be the 2ww making me so stressed). 


FX for BPF but I'm so scared of getting my hopes up! We only transferred 1 embryo on day 3, because that's all we had... I know the odds are not great...
