My husband and I just did our first round of IVF and are waiting to hear...I don't know anyone else who has ever struggled with infertility and I feel very lonely. We only have 3 more days to wait to find out if we are pregnant and I'm feeling very unsure. I feel crampy and although my emotions have leveled out somewhat, the progesterone still has hormonal effects for sure. Are cramps pretty normal? I'm afraid they are a sign i'm going to start my period. I would love any tips or suggestions from anyone...Thanks.

three more days to go, that's great! :)


stay calm and positive, you are almost there.


with my ivf #1 that I had my son, I remember those last couple of days before going in for beta, I was SO sure I was getting my period.

Congratulations! Just got word from the doctor that i'm pregnant! I have also been having a lot of cramping and sharp pains kind of on the sides so I asked the nurse about it. She said my ovaries are still huge at this point and it's totally normal which set my mind at ease! My count was 1850! I am still very hesitant, though. Just nervous and hope it all goes well!
