I've always hated the 2ww. I don't remember how I got through it for my de cycle. Distraction I guess! My beta was a true 2 weeks after transfer, so I did chest and poas :)

Best wishes to you! Everything crossed for you!!

I never struggled much with the 2ww because I find that the time flies by if you keep busy. With a job, a house to keep...two crazy Boxers (Dogs) and a 16 month old drama queen to chase around.......I manage to wonder how the time flies by so fast!!

Stay busy.....make things up to do!! Start nesting...HAHA.....

I have had slight cramps and twinges with BOTH my IVF cycles and both were BFP's.....just stay as positive as possible. I am a cheater...I have ALWAYS POAS...because I HAD to know going into my beta what I was in for. I am a control freak..and uber prepared.......so I had to cheat....MULTIPLE times before my beta's!

Good luck.....not much longer for you now!

What is POAS?
Well, I'm still having cramping/twinges. I am 6dpt-5dt and I took a HPT this afternoon. I know I shouldn't take one in the afternoon, but I did anyway and it came up negative. I'll probably take one in the morning.

POAS = pee on a stick = take a test :)

Oh, and I've always gotten my bfps at 12dpo (and hd negatives at 11 dpo) so I'm betting you'll see two lines tomorrow :)

I think my first mistake was taking it this afternoon.

the 2ww just plain sucks... i had all the same symptoms with my BFP cycle as i did with all the negatives.
