I remember not having any symptoms when I had Pearette transferred and feeling less than hopeful too. If I remember correctly, I didn't have any symptoms until about 11 days past EC when I had a stabbing pain.
I think everyone is different so lack of symptoms or signs doesn't necessarily mean anything. Hang in there, it's really hard I know, and the days pass soo slowly when you're in 2ww.
Wishing you the best of luck!
I had and still have no symptoms whatsoever, this cycle was just the same as all my BFN's.
I tested early at 8dp5dt and got a BFN on a FRER and remember feeling like the only thing stopping AF from flowing out was my progesterone, turned out I was wrong....and tbh I was even tempted to stop my meds 1 night early after that BFN.
Lots of people mention symptoms from a few days after transfer, but it's just as normal to get no symptoms I think.
hey there ,
i had only bad symptoms this round after my Xfer. i tested daily after the xfer but tucked them away to not stress myself out by looking at them and seeing negatives (this was the most depressing/stressful part) . well i peeked at 5DP internet cheapy stick and saw an imaginary line that i swore was there (no one else sees it)
i messed around in photo shop and was able to make them see it too. i used a Clear blue digital with some urine later that day and after many many minutes, it popped up positive - much earlier than the box says it will be functional (we xfered 3, so this is early) early BFPs mean nothing really, some get late ones and have healthy babies, some have early ones that dont pull through.
as for feeling normal, my first IVF i felt normal (and depressed, just like you. ) aside from bleeding from 2DPT all the way through the pregnancy, it ended up being a weak positive on beta day and lacked doubling after the 3rd beta.
first FET, i felt terrible. and the entire time after xfer felt like i was on my period. i bled literally immediately after the Xfer until test day. i was incredibly angry and depressed. BFN
second fresh IVF i felt absolutely nothing. period pains about 4 days before testing (so, 6-7DPT). got a BFN.
this FET again, ive felt nothing but bad symptoms ( and side effects from progesterone shots) the first 4 days - red bleeding included. i did get some stabbing in my left ovary type pain that felt like digging on and off, and 2 days later felt digging in my right ovary. i figure it is because my ovaries are still, even 2 months later, enlarged from my retrieval in february . sometimes when you try to symptom spot, you either overwhelm yourself, or disappoint yourself.
i decided to just not look at anything when i went to the bathroom , at all. if i saw no blood, there was no blood, in my head. ( the things we do to keep sane)
i hope your feelings of 'nothingness' turn out to be a good thing for you. i understand how horrible waiting is.
as for CM, it sort of changes the ball game with IVF. you are on so many medications your body is very confused. nothing is really regular. the only real way to know is your beta. then the HB ultrasound. ive sadly never gotten to that point yet.
i wish you luck and hope your first round is a charm. IVF isnt a cure all unfortunately and it certainly isnt fair at all. (especially when you see many first round success stories -- it definitely makes you more bitter each round)
some people go into IVF thinking that it only takes one shot. a family of a student i teach went through 3 clinics and i think over 9 full rounds before they got lucky , they were the first to tell me during my first pregnancy that it isnt a picnic. im glad they were honest with me when i was more in the clouds about it i felt more of a let down.
the only nice thing about IVF is that it isnt a 2ww! ( and then, if you get a negative you wish your doctor would hold on just a few more days to be REALLLLY sure it is negative. ( ive said this to my doctor) hah.
good luck on your journey, i hope it is a short one!
