    Hi Coll,

    congratulations!! i conceived through IVF and have been where you are right now. I had really bad cramping for several weeks maybe up to about week 6. It was so bad I went to the emergency department one night. I think cramping is normal for some people so try not to worry. I had to use a hot water bottle and take panedine on some nights. If your on crinone or some other progesterone suppliment this can also cause cramping or exacerbate cramping. When I had a scan about about week 7 my FS said my ovaries were still a bit enlarged from EPU so this might also have caused or exacerbated cramping.

    I agree with ebsta that if you start having some bleeding you probably want to get it checked out, but just cramping alone seems part and parcel of early preganancy for some people and can be exacerbated by IVF bits and pieces.

    Wishing you all the best
