Feeling very tearful again today. Due to test Wednesday but no pregnancy signs, just a feeling of bad PMT!! I also feel like hiding away (probably the worst thing to do). Having been at work all week and having to brave face the way I am feeling has left me wanting some space. Help! I am normally so sociable and due to have a old friend over tonight, which I just want to cancel. I guess it just a hormone thing. Was even horrible to DH this morning which has made me feel worse. Enough of self pity, I guess we should remember we are lucky to have come this far and have the option of help. Having taken a look at the latest threads and started to feel much better and more human again.
Delli - go girl on the retail therapy front. That is just what I am going to do a little later on. I hope you resisted the temptation of shandys!!
Good luck to everyone testing this weekend and on Monday. What ever the outcome my thoughts are with you all.
I am off to cheer myself up with some choccy and a cuppa (herbal of course!).
Am new to 2ww having had et on thursday. Don't know what to do with myself really and am already bored of sitting around so going back to work on monday.
Any advice on what I should/shouldn't be doing very welcome, my clinic said to carry on as normal - only less so!
Regards to all
btw if anyone reads this from the oct/nov board I've been posting on there but my computer now doesn't seem to like that thread and chucks me out when I try and post. Please pass on my best to all on that board next time you post......many thanks, R
I have had 2 high grade embryo's replaced with little or no fragmentation.
I didn't catch the whole conversation about grading as i had taken the need for a full bladder too far and was actually in pain . Had to get up and let some out before they could continue & then had to get straight up after to finish the job
Congratulations to the new 2WW girls. Glad to hear your ET were successful. Brilliant news.
Regarding what to do. I also had ET on a Thursday and returned to work the following Monday. (Office Work). For me it was a really good thing as I needed to keep my mind busy to keep in wondering.
I read a really good book (sorry forget the name now) but it says in the 2WW
Things to avoid.
Heavy housework (yipee hovering etc)
Things you can and should do
Keep tummy warm (not hot water bottle) to increase blood flow to uterus
Rest regularly - videos/cinema/meals out etc
Meet friends etc
Keep a sense or normality but do not over do (both at work or home)
All I will say (now only 3 days till I test) remember you may feel a little up a down over the next week or so, mainly down to changing hormones and pessaries. Allow yourself some space if you need it. It is perfectly normal, as are tummy cramps (which do not necessarily mean AF is coming). I have now stopped obsessively checking my knickers, having been reassured this is totally normal.
Above all gain strength from having got this far and whatever the outcome (hopefully positive for us all!) your clinic are learning more about you and this will hopefully help with any future treatments (which hopefully) wont be necessary.
Good luck everyone - enjoy the time out from the normally busy schedule and carry your embryo's with pride.
I officially started my 2ww yesterday had 2 embies put back,one grade 1 4 cells and one grade 2 2 cells.
I too had taken the full balder 2 literarily, We had to stop half way through as I was going to wee myself, very embarrassing had to go and empty half my bladder before they could continue with the transfer.
I test on the 19th already seems like an age away.
I've stayed in bed today and dont have to go back to work until Wednesday, but I wish I could have the 2 weeks off.(wishful thinking)
Good luck to those who are testing in a few days fingers crossed.xxx
OMG what happened, overnight and loads of new names, this is fab.
My memory is crap, so I'll say hello to everyone now, and wish everybody the very best of luck for the next two weeks.
Anyway, back to reality, I resigned myself to watching two fat ladies today on the tv as it was either that or sport (I don't think so, hubbie is at work), anyway, I am no slim chick by no means, but come on how big are they, but after watching 20 minutes I'm not surprised, everything was cooked in lard, soaked in lard, or lovingly spread with lard, I have been watching with my jaw on the floor. Don't get me wrong I love a good chinese, indian or pizza, but these ladies cook like this full stop. Am I right in thinking that one of them is now dead, bet that was a heart attack, OH what a wicked person I am.
Anyway, gotta go I'm missing the receipe on how to cook bubble and squeek, the lard way.
Hi Dellie,Toofa,Joe and Trudy

Started off today really positive , but have gone down hill horrendously. Hubbie came home from work, and I thought we could have a lovely night in, nice food and maybe a DVD. Anyway, his best friend phoned within half an hour of him been home, and aksed him out for a drink, he said yes as he's not seen him for a while.
He asked me to go, but I said I would rather set myself on fire than go to a pub and not be able to have a drink, and especially to watch him get drunk, I then proceeded to act like a five year old not getting her own way, so in the end he phoned his mate and said he'd changed his mind. I then said to hubbie you should go out you havn't seen your buddy for ages, to which he replied I can't do right for doing wrong here. So this evening hubbie has had a beer at home, and I have sat downstairs watching crap, while he has been upstairs 'keeping out of the way'. I've been upstairs a couple of times and walked past the bathroom (made sure the door was opened), (he's in the bath), and I've proceeded to have a little tear, just so he can hear me. I am turning into a lunatic, normally I would jump for joy if he was going out so we weren't fighting over the remote, but I feel so clingy, its pathetic, and I know when he's trying his hardest to comfort me I tell him to naff off, he can't possibly know how I feel having to have gestone injections daily, in the butt and thigh, they are the worst injections I have ever had to endure, and the thought of having them much longer is sending me round the bend.
Anyway, I'm really sorry for prattling on, but I'm not testing while 15/11, I had embies put back in on 29/10, my dr said to wait 16 days, but if you count the day of et and the day of the test, thats 18 days, AAARRGGHH!!!!!!
Just so you all don't get the wrong picture, I love DH dearly, he's my best friend.
Tinkerbell - I have been sore since my et on 31/10. I am now 6 dpt and i have felt some kind of pain every day since my et. To begin with i just felt like i had been run over by a truck and for the last two days ive had proper af pains. When i rang my clinic they said that it was all normal because the drugs were still in my system.
Birthbaby - i also only had 1 emby put back. Me and my dh felt that if it was going to work then it would work with 1 emby.
I test on the 16/10 and i think this is going to be the longest 16 days of my entire life.
take care everyone and good luck to anyone who is testing tomorrow.
dont be too hard on yourself - youre going through hell at the moment not only physically but mentally as well. its only natural that you feel a bit clingy.
i feel exactly the same at the moment - i had et on the 31/10 and dont test until the 16/11. it feels like an age and i feel a bit more apprehensive as each day passes.
the way i'm trying to think of it is - at the moment this is the best chance i have had to get pregnant since my ectopic which was about 15 years ago. when i think of it that way it makes me feel a bit more positive - at least we are all trying to do something about this wicked infertility.
I know your right, its just soo frustrating. It doesn't matter what you do, its never far from your thoughts. I'm going to slope off to bed now for a cuddle, and I'll try to wake up in a more postive mood.
Delli dont worry girl we're all going through the same thing, I was a right cow to dh when I was on all the drugs, it's like you know you're being unreasonable by I couldn't stop myself.
Thankfully I'm feeling more like myself now, so he doesn't have to hide upstairs away from me.
Hope your feeling more positive this morning.
Hi Nikki I test on 19th too, looks like there a few of us that day.
I've been having some shooting pains since ET but nothing too bad, but I was sick this morning was tried not to be as it was hurting my tummy and I didn't want to dislodge my embies.
I'm going back to bed now for a bit to watch a video, Lord of the rings-should keep me entertained for a few hours.
