Question for you girls who are ahead of me in this process: I'm 7 days into stims, and aside from the normal cramps and pinches, I've been having pain with urination...not pain like a UTI, but pain in my ovaries while I'm peeing. It's not extreme pain, and it subsides a few seconds after I'm done peeing. Did any of you have anything similar?

Puddles I think I had something similar in my last 2-3days and a bit after retrieval but it wasn't bad it something I would notice but not actually be bothered by it if that makes sense,I guess is kinda normal with our ovaries big and with all of those eggs growing nicely.If is really bothering you call ur doctor.Are you in risk for OHSS?has ur doctor said anything?!Are you having proteins and lots of water?!

I would let your doctor know and see if it's a normal side effect from the meds. Always better to be safe than sorry.

Soooo, I thought I posted earlier but it's not showing up for some reason :doh:

Puddles - I am sure you're fine but good to check with the nurse.

SEPT - What's the verdict? I mean, I think we all know, but.... Did you have your beta yet? So excited for you!

BusyBee - How are you? Any more testing? As she said, it's not over until you see the Beta. Thinking of you and sending loving thoughts your way and praying for a surprise Beta surge!

Other updates? Sorry I feel like I am leaving a ton of people out.

AFM - Had my lining check today and everything looks great! FET will be on Tuesday 7/19 for sure. I am getting more excited and nervous each day. Hard to believe it's almost here. I go from bouts of extreme excitement and confidence to utter terror and anxiety. Pretty normal, I think. :D

Have a great week ladies!

Busy good luck on ur beta!!!
Ok ladies I have some questions regarding FET that is going trough my mind:
#1 Is it painful?!
#2Do you need a full bladder?!
#3Are the giving you any painkillers for the procedure?
#4Will you spot immediately after the procedure?!
#5What cycle day is the transfer done?!
#6 Are cramps normal after the procedure ?!
These are the few questions that runs trough my mind at the moment and I wanted to share with all of you and maybe get some answers or at least talk about them questions.
I think IVF is the most important thing I ever done in my life and I'm happy to announce that im not that stressed about everything.
Keep Calm And Implant!!!!My motto:)))
