For Mature Audiences

I thought long and hard about posting this and finally I said, hey, I've been posting all about my womanly bits and parts, what's a little bit more. So, I'm just giving you fair warning. This may be a little bit TMI and a little bit X-rated, but what the hell, you only live once.

I've been scouring all over the internet because I had myself a very *ahem* explicit dream last night and awoke in a bit of a panic. The nurse had specifically said no sex during the 2WW including the big O (this does not refer to tires). I think it has to do with uterine contractions or something. Want to know the saddest thing about this whole fiasco...I can't tell (remember?) if I actually did O. I just remember having a dream fairly adult in nature (I'll spare you the details) and then waking up, having to use the bathroom and having minor cramping. But, the cramping was alleviated once I emptied my bladder. So, was it O or was it just a full bladder?

Now I probably would have been able to put this whole incident aside with just a few minor panic attacks, but when I woke up this morning I had some fairly strong cramps right in the uterus area. So, then it brought on a whole host of worries and anxieties too long to list. And then to top things off, I'm a just a bit disturbed and a whole lot embarrassed about having "wet" dreams when I'm 34.

I'm 7dp2dt and between the back pain, the cramps, and the adolescent boy dreams, I am not in a happy place by any means. It feels like AF is right on the doorstep and I've just opened the door and welcomed her in. I can't believe I have to wait another week!

hey there - the same thing happened to me during my 2ww, so you're not alone. has happened to a few others as well (and 2 of them in particular got bfp's!!) so don't worry that you harmed your embies or anything like that, if you did, in fact, have an O. *heehee*. is kinda embarrassing yet hilarious at the same time, yes?? it's not a surprise that it's happened to a bunch of us, given that we've been banned from doing the deed for so long!!

ps - i think ur preggers :o)

I don't think I've ever heard of not having sex during your 2ww. Actually your symptoms sound promising! I'm sure your just fine. Good luck!

Ha ha! Sooooo funny!

Hello from ICLW. I was looking forward to the juicy bits! Or were they too embarrassing, involving like Fred Savage or something??? Tee hee.

(btw, I get them too, if it's ahh... been a while).

A friend of mine had this during her 2ww. Reading other comments it's not completely unusual. You learn more every day!

I think the verdict is sorta still out on whether or not the O is allowed. My clinic says you can resume normal sexual activity a day after the transfer.

I have to say that I do love how open everyone is about this stuff!

Good luck, I'll be checking in.

I get dreams like that too when it's been awhile or when I've been told not to have sex. It's your body's way of telling your mind you're craving it or vice versa. Hoping this is your month.

don't worry about your dream, I actually had the same thing, & I was pg & didn't know it. after, I had severe cramps. I think you needed to relax anyway! :)

Everything still crossed for you!!!

Man this is so not uncommon huh? I bet your cramping is just the babies setlling in for the long haul. Don't sweat it girl O or not you're good. Can't wait to hear about your fat beta numbers. Happy iclw.

Hi! I'm late to the ICLW party, but I had to tell you this post cracked me up! I had this happen during a 2ww also. ;)
I am in the middle of a 2ww from my first IVF.
Good Luck to you!!

i wouldn't worry. think about all the people who continue to have sex before they find out they're pregnant. keeping everything crossed!
