Awww man. It sounds like an allergy. I doubt transfer will be cancelled tho, they may just switch the administration of your progesterone.

Danaa- The same thing happened to me, I had a horrible reaction to the suppositories. They still did my transfer and switched me to 2 shots a day and it cleared right up. Hope everything works out for you and you still get to do your transfer, go get a massage tonight and relax :)

Johnny- Today is BETA day!!! Can't wait to hear what your numbers are, I forget did you transfer one or two embryos?

Johnnyswife- Congratulations! That is awesome news! I know your numbers are going to double!

Danaa- Good luck tomorrow! I will be thinking about you! I hope they can give you a different form of progesterone. I actually have just developed an allergy to my injections even though I've been taking them for over six weeks. Suddenly my injection site is all red and itchy. It's weird what our bodies respond to.

AFM- I had my first appointment with my "regular" OB this week. She convinced me that stopping progesterone will be fine so tonight is my last shot! It's a good thing too, because as I said I am developing some kind of weird reaction to them. Maybe it is my body's way of saying it doesn't need them anymore. My OB said I could go back in two weeks to hear the heartbeat just for peace of mind since I'm nervous about coming off my meds and then it's every 4 weeks for the next several months. It's weird to be with the "normals" now, haha. Enjoy your weekend ladies!

Hey Danaa!! Yay!! You're PUPO!!!
You are fine. No craming right away is good. Let your baby do its thing!! You'll feel cramping and implantation soon enough!
I barely have any symptoms others than shortness if breath here and there and my veins are extremely visible everywhere. The cramping I have feels like pre-af but its obviously not!!! Just today my gums are puffing up, I suspect they'll bleed soon, lol. I can't wait for Monday for BETA #2!
Have a H&H 9 months!!!

That is what I have been doing,if I crave it it goes right into my mouth:))but im kinda scared of going crazy with food bcs i have been on a low carb diet and no sugar for months and i don't want the weight i lost to return double:))anyway starting tomorrow im going right back to my healthy eating.
By the way did you had any sharp stabbing pains?I had 3 very painful sharp stabbing pains earlier in my lower abdomen more to my right part,I was so happy to feel something,anything.Hoping it is implantation.
