I had et on Friday, and so far all going extremely well! ( i know, i know, its ONLY been 2 days!!!!)
My EC was a complete nightmare, we were stuck in complete standstill traffic on the A12 so ended up arriving at the clinic 5 mins after we were due to actually go into theater!! talk about ripping my hair out!. , however on a plus point all adrenalin was used up so i just slept through most of EC and really have no recollection!!!
So...now i have just been totally chilling out!
Got myself a little worked up in the car on the way home from ET cos i stretched to reach something on the floor of the car (and i mean really stretched!) and then thought OOPS and spent the rest of the day worrying that i had ruined things b4 i had even started!!!! i wont have, will i

I started off my 2nd cycle of IVF on August Angels Cycle Buddies but I have really found this treatment hard to cope with and I have shut myself away from everything so I haven't posted for months. I really wish I had as I could have done with the support.
I just wanted to send this post to try and make all the 2WW feel a bit better if I can.
I had 2 4 cell embies transfered on 29th Sept 2004, I am the most negative person you could meet and I had no faith in this treatment working at all. I felt really sore after the EC and was in pain for a week after. I had sore boobs and a bloated stomach but slowly as the days went on these disappeared. 1 wwek after transfer I had no symptoms what so ever, I tested early (Never do this it is a waste of time and sends you insane!!!! ) and it was negative, on the Friday I started spotting. Me and my hubby resigned ourselves to the fact it hadnt worked and slowly started to put ourselves back together again. The bleeding got heavy and was proper bleeding with clots (Sorry TMI) on the Monday it was a bit lighter and had stopped by Wednesday morning. I normally have very heavy periods and lots of pain and it always lasts over 7 days. I started to get on with life, I did housework, had a glass of wine , carried heavy shopping and put up new curtains. I do not know why I did it but on my test date I did a HPT (A really cheap 1.99 one) I just thought this would draw a line under it once an for all. I forgot about the test and left it set up for over half an hour when I checked it there was a faint positive . Me and hubby could not believe it. I went out and bought loads of other tests and I have been testing every day since and it has got stronger by the day.
I wanted to share my story because I had no symptoms what so ever and I had 5 days of bleeding and still have a positive I understand totally what it is like being so desparate for any sort of symptom. Don't give up hope if you do not feel pregnant or have any symptoms!!
My clinic said it could have been implantation bleeding or I may have lost one embie, I have my scan on 29th October 2004 so I have everything crossed. I have had a previous miscarriage at 6 weeks so I am not getting too excited just yet.
Good luck and lots of love to everyone on the 2WW, it is the hardest thing I have ever done in my life, we are still living on egg shells but some of our hope has returned. Hope my stpry helps
