Seansgirl- Thanks! I just started them last night. It wasnt too terrible just sore. What surprised me is how tired I got after! I slept so much and Im still tired. I dont remember that from before although Im sure it was the same.

1118- that is amazing news! Congratulations 🎉

Melissa- Im super tired as well and bloated. I wasnt sure if it was the stress of it all or the hormones.

Seansgirl- Ive done this before and I dont remember being so tired although I probably was. For me I know its the hormones. I just lost my job two days into my cycle. Or I should say the aftermath of covid took my job. I am definitely really glad I be doing this now. Anyways I still feel like super tired, and I wasnt before the progesterone hit me. You mentioned you took a train to your fet ? Are you from Ottawa doing ivf in Toronto? Thats what I do too!

Melissa- Im so sorry to hear about your job. Is it a temporary thing or permanent? Im really fortunate that my job isnt affected to much from Covid. My employer somehow managed to pay all full time staff during the lockdown last year. I am from Ottawa(south) and do travel to Toronto. I had enough of OFC and will never go back. The traveling sucks but my clinic has a satellite office in Ottawa so I can do all bw and US here and only have to travel for actual procedures.

Thanks. No its permanent. I worked in the tech industry as a BA and they restructured the company, they depend on clients in the US . I have a lot of experience and a good background but the job markets challenging. Ive gotten a few interviews but nothing has panned out ! Ya i didnt have a great experience at OFC. My clinic doesnt have a satellite clinic here, but its awesome that yours does! How many days are you post transfer? Will you POS? Id like to say Ill wait for beta but theres no way

1118 - did you have any symptoms during your 2WW?

I dont really notice any symptoms from taking progesterone. Im just as tired as I am on a regular day lol. I started having some cramps this morning. Same kind of cramps that have resulted in a negative the past 3 times 😒. Im only 5dp5dt so Ill wait 2 more days to do a HPT.

Melissa- Im 3dp5dt. Ive been kinda freaking out as Ive been cramping a lot today. But I know its probably the progesterone. Trying not to stress about it, but its hard. I dont know if I will poas, but I have some incase I decide to.

SD11- Im 2 days behind you and Ive been having some cramping this afternoon. I had some the last few days, but its been a bit more intense. Feels like AF is going to rear her ugly face.

1118- when do you go back for a another Beta?

Seansgirl - my cramps yesterday were period like as well. Nothing really so far today though. I try not to dwell on the symptoms since they dont really predict anything. Some people have symptoms and some dont. Whats your prior history with IVF/FETs, or is this your first time? What type of diagnosis were you given? I was considered unexplained, but likely endometriosis plays some factor.

Does anyone know what the rule (if there is one) on sex before a transfer? My clinic didnt say anything about before, and Im not sure why it would matter. I just figured Id ask here before I called them . Normally Id just abstain but I had surgery in January and so its been a while lol and Ill definitely abstain afterwards

They say to abstain after but not before. The reason is because if an orgasm causes contractions of the uterus then that can mess up with the implantation so before is not an issue.

I broke and decided to do a HPT this afternoon at 6dp5dt. I got a very faint line! My heart could explode! Im trying to keep my expectations in check because its early and the line isnt dark. Last transfer I got a faint line at this point too but I did a trigger shot last time so Im wondering if those chemicals were still in my body. This time I did not do a trigger shot.

Melissa- Im sure before is fine. I was just not to after transfer as it can affect implantation.

SD11- yay! Congrats. I will pray that your line gets darker! Im too afraid to test. I may test Wednesday so I know what to expect on Thursday. I want to enjoy being pupo for as long as I can.
