I had 3day 8 cells perfect embrio (the embriologyst said) transfer on 10.03 2014. last night at 02.30 am - 4-5 day after the transfer I felt sharp pain lower abdomen starting from the front pushing toward the back.During the 4 day from the morning on several occasions I felt some cramps as well, lower back pain and my ovaries were like burning sensation or sore. I usually feel ovulation, and have been checking my symptoms with a doctor check up and my symptoms were confirmed to be true, that I did feel the ovulation and ovulated at the time I felt it. So, this morning at 2.30 am I thought that it is implantation as it was 4 days past 3 day embryo transfer. But as they started I remembered that I forgot to put progesterone gel that night. I panicked and walked to put it, went to pee and went to bed again. I am worried that by getting out of the bed and waling to put the progesterone vaginal gel, I might have disrupted the implantation of the embryo. Please tell me whether I have stopped the implantation, and does the embryo still has a chance
