Symptoms or issues during 2WW: Very FAINT AF cramping! I would of thought because I was so in tune with my body and educated on “supposed symptoms” of pregnancy I would know but when the doctor called and told me I was pregnant I did not believe it! No symptoms like some people claim they have. I think a lot of people mentally make themselves sick (seriously!) lol

I’ll just tell you my honest opinion on some things. Don’t waste your time and money on IUI. If you can’t get pregnant having regular sex after say 3 years, go straight to ivf. I’m in the military so IUIs were covered completely so that’s why we did it first (and there was a year wait for ivf) but it was a waste of time in my opinion. There are some success stories though. Find a clinic that only transfers day 5 blasts. That’s just my opinion. I got pregnant 1 st attempt and so do most women who use this clinic because they just transfer 5 day blasts (unless they are arresting before that) but they don’t have as good success with the day 3. After IVF ate pineapple and pineapple core, dried pineapple and pineapple juice. Not over kill but enough! Sweet potatoes and lots of iron and protein rich foods! No caffeine no smoking no alcohol. Rested pretty easy for 48 hours after transfer. During the 2 ww I really was calm and put it in Gods hands.
Best of luck everyone! Stay positive!:bsv: :bfp: :cheer: :babydust:
