I need help. I have a 2-embryo blastocyst transfer done 11 days ago. I did a urine test this morning and is was negative. But I have all kind of symptoms: nausea, pain in my leg, lower back pain, my boobs are sore, headache, bloating, and everyday I feel a lot of cramps like my period cramps.
I wonder whether this is normal or if I could be pregnant… My blood test is due on Oct, 14.

REPLY TO DOMITILA RODRIGUEZ:
The symptoms you are experiencing are due to the stimulation of ovarian function medications prescribed for the treatment. Even the anxiety you’re developing because of the 2WW may lead to those symptoms. Performing a pregnancy test on day 11 post embryo transfer may show rather accurate results; nevertheless, in some cases it may still be too early for the hCG hormone levels to be detectable. If your period is still missing, my recommendation is that you repeat the test after a few days to confirm whether you are indeed pregnant or not. Do not cancel the hormone medications you are taking unless otherwise indicated by your doctor.
