hi all, new to the site. I'm 30 dh is 34. I have a 12 years old from previous relationship - natural. On my 1st IVF cycle (blocked Fallopian tubes) on d8 of 5dt.

i have a rather embarressing problem that is really getting to me throughout this horrible 2ww! I know the advice given to me by the clinic after transfer re sex and orgasms was to avoid for the 2wks. I however had a "strange dream" on Saturday night to which I woke in the middle of the night feeling like I was having the big "O"! - straight after I had this unbelievable cramping pain just above my pubic bone area which seemed to come over in waves of about 3 secs (sec 1 being painful & pain worsening by sec 3) this lasted for about 10 minutes and I am now certain in my mind they were contractions and I've lost the two embies already! I have lost no blood and been fine ever since so I was hoping for any advice that may put my mind at ease (or not as the case may be) I'm due to take the hpt  on Friday and am just in bits at the thought of a stupid dream ruining the whole thing!

Hiya,

Welcome to the site.  I had all sorts of wierd and wonderful 2ww symptoms on both out negative and positive cycles, so I wouldn't read too much into your dream.  Best of luck for testing and let us know how you get on.

Hello saltab, welcome to Fertility Friends. :)

Please try not to worry about your strange problem, It's not at all embarrassing here, trust me and you'd be surprised how manay ladies have an orgasm in their sleep during treatment, or describe similar symtpms to what you are experiencing. As for sex and orgasms durign the 2 week wait - well, advice does seem to be rather mixed on that too with some clinics saying carry on as normal and others advising to avoid. You might find this poll quite helpful:

http://www.fertilityfriends.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=9452.0

Your embryos are snuggled in there nice and tight - one very good description once used by someone on FF was that your uterus is like a jam sandwich - so the chances are that something like this could not displodge them anyway. face it, if having an orgasm did then how on earth would anyone ever get pregnant! You get all sorts fo odd symptoms during the 2ww and you can almost never say one or another is a sure sign of a result because we are all different and all respond to the drugs and procedutres differently. Some ladies will tell you they "knew" their treatment worked but a lot have no idea and in fact, think it hasn't when it had (I did!).
You might find it very helpful to join the other lades on the 2 week wait here:

You can also "meet" and chat with people in your local area through the Location boards. This is especially useful to find people who may be using the same clinic and or in the same PCT area.

Wishing you lots of luck and ^sticky vibes^ . Please do post back on this thread on Friday to let us know the outcome.
