Anyone else experience it? I feel like I am getting period but I know I can not be as the meds are still in system.

I had the transfer on Sunday and today is Wednesday. I think it's safe to go for a walk today and maybe I will feel better afterwards. It could be from the procedures or the bed rest and not moving?

But yeaaaaaaah, I feel it in abdomen area and above the crotch. Just cramps. Not painful though.

How is everyone doing?

I think that is pretty normal. If you're concerned you can call your nurses to ask what they think.

Hey there,
I just had my transfer on Saturday and it is Monday night. I am feeling pain, kinda. I can not tell if it is cramps or what? It feels like both of my ovaries are hurting, nothing severe but not that comfortable either. A little worried but maybe it is normal? I hope you are feeling better!

your ovaries are very swollen right now and will stay that way for awhile. If you are pregnant it will stay that way for a few weeks.

Me, too. It's been almost nine days since the transfer and I still feel like I am getting my period. But I know I am not because of the suppositories. But I am cool about it - just waiting until Friday for the news.

Good luck you guys!

hey betyusa,

good luck on your news for friday! it's almost here! i go for my progestrone test tomorrow so I have a ways to go.

On another note is anyone taking crinone vaginal suppositories? I thought I was going to have to go to the hospital last night I had these stomach pains due to constipation like i have never felt before in my life. I thought somehitng was going to rupture inside of my stomach. I heard that these suppositories can make you constipated. I am so worried because i was straining so much last night to go to the bathroom and the pains in my stomach were so bad could it effect my embryos in there? I am so scared I did something Any words of advice or what I can take that is safe so I wont be constipated?

Thanks ladies!

I am taking those. Twice a day. And yes, not comfortable at all. I think perhaps why I feel cramped, actually these days...

Oh, the shot. Yes. I did that, too. It's huge! But I didn't mind it that much. Didn't hurt...
