Hi, I'm on my 3rd ivf cycle. 1st one ended in a silent miscarriage after a scan at 11 weeks, the 2nd failed, no cramps or breast tenderness. I'm on day 6 of a 5 day transfer. Just had cramps, quite strong on 2-4 days with back ache and now have milder period type cramps with a slight headache.  Im thinking the worst as the time when I did get pregnant I had cramps in short bursts for the 1st 3 days then nothing and very tender swollen breasts. Staying positive for a few more days is so hard. My partner is finding it a struggle now and has been so upset. I'm worried how he will handle a negative result. Time is running out as I'm 41. If I knew 20 years ago what I know now I would have started trying much earlier. Each cycle gets harder but we are not giving up yet. Thank you for taking the time to read this and please keep your fingers crossed for the 28th October. B
