Izy Bee - I think your cramping and spotting is from the trouble they had putting the egg back - it sounds like your cervix is sensitive and by them 'playing' around down there to make sure the egg had gone most likely just caused it to get upset - my cervix did something as bad with my HSG test due to them playing around there to much (as it slipped out and the dye went everything the first time).
Raffi - I wish I had some words of wisdom, yes the progesterone is most likely stopping AF 'if' its going to come, my progesterone injection held off my M/C (and my levels were only 7 by the time I had the shot) for 5 days, so I now know how well strong progesterone can stop AF. However don't give up hope, I also know women who have had IVF, still on progesterone support and AF still came, so no AF is a good thing. When was your last HGC injection? Do remember your in with a big chance this cycle with getting a , I know its hard when you have tried so long but try and hold on the positive side until you know its over.

Raffi/Izy ... I'm so hoping you girls are wrong and you'll have some exciting news in the coming days. Like I said, I was also so sure it hadn't worked and then got a nice surprise. I know what you're going through - the wait is agony. Good luck and as always ... thinking of you.

Shelby - thankyou though for your kind words - they have actually helped - you are absolutely right, we do actually have a real chance this month and I have to remember that. I also need to remember that if it is not a success this month, then it is only our first month and we are one step closer. My last HCG (pregnyl) injection was Monday last week (so the 2nd April), my clinic told me not to POAS though and to wait for the blood test and I think I will! Still no AF and I hope it stays that way! Thanks again for your support, especially at such a tough time for yourself. xx
HaleyW - you are still my inspiration! I keep telling myself HaleyW didn't have any symptoms so still in with a chance!
IzyBee - how are you feeling now? Better I hope.
So just over a day until my test and I am feeling still a bit bloated (but not as much as I was but definitely still there), was a bit crampy this arvo but that seems to have gone for now and so yeah just keep waiting some more!! lol!! My DD keeps saying there is a baby in my tummy - I just hope she is right!!
*hugs* to all xx
