Hi I am on my first cycle of IVF and at day 8 since the transfer... I cant sleep, I am now struggling to focus at work and the few that know what is going on don't want to talk about it as they fear I will have my hopes built up.. I am happy/sad I am exhausted but cant sleep.. my boobs are practically talking back to me they are so painful.. I have one pair of trousers that fit and one top ppl have asked me if I am pregnant as that is how I look I dont know who I am and I am freaking out I am writing this were i should be working proably not making any sense so just going to leave it for now.  Sorry  :-[ :'(

Hi Believer and welcome to the site :)

You have come to a fantastic site full of advice and support.

I just wanted to wish you loads of luck with the IVF and that it brings a positive result. The feelings you are experiencing are perfectly normal and it must be frustrating having to wait to do a pregnancy test after the 14 days. I cannot imagine how long those 14 days must take to pass by. Good luck.

Kate xx
