Has anyone had a IVF 3 day transfer and became pregnant?
I just had a 3 day transfer yesterday and I heard that it is better to do a transfer on day 5.  My questions is has anyone had a 3 day transfer and became pregnant.  Also, when does implantation take place during a three day transfer.

Thank you for that story.
I had two perfect embryos transferred a few weeks ago, but it did not result in pregnancy for me..So many ladies I am hearing about getting BFPs with day5 transfers.....
Well, I am over 40, so doctors will do automatic day3 transfer at my RE office unless you don't want it or unless you have lots of good quality embies, which some women my age, just don't have, so pretty much I was starting to get depressed that if I try again, I will never get success if my embies can't get to day 5, but your story still gives me hope, so I am going to keep positive!
Congrats on the twins!

Thank you for telling us your great story, makes me feel a whole heap better.  I did my first FET yesterday, two 8-cell 3dt. I am so nervous as my first IVF cycle with 2 high grade fresh embryos was not successful.
Twin girls, wow! That's fantastic!

Hi there,
I had a day 3 ET ( 8 cell) 2 embryos and got a call yesterday that I'm pregnant.It works, They wouldn't do it if it doesn't. I have another blood work in a week , hoping it will increase. Not sure if both embryos took, but my HCG level was 512. Good luck

I did a 5dt with two beautiful embys through IVF and I am 30 with no coplication but I do have PCOS other that that I am perfectly healty my DH as well however we did not get pregnant on with this try. We froze three of our blastocys and now we are on our second try, I am suppose to be in the 60% success rate however that 40% gap is real and I dont have much hope any more I am just playing it by ear. I do have faith that GOD will grant us our heart desire. Good luck to all of you.

I am right on track with you. I had a day 3 ET on the 2nd of December. I also have been taking HPT's and they have all been negative. I have lost hope. I go in tomorrow for my first blood test. My doctor said we only had to wait for day 9 and day 11 to test. So I guess I am lucky that it is coming so soon. I would have been ablt to test today but it is Sunday so I have to wait until tomorrow. I have had really bad cramps and so I feel it did not work. We have been TTC for 8 years now and this is our one and only attempt at IVF. I can not afford it. It cost me 9,950 for one cycle and all meds were paid by my insurance. I am so lucky since my body did not respond well to the meds and they had to keep increasing them. I am so nervous and have been crying about it. My only thing keeping me going is we were blessed with a baby boy in foster care when he was 12 days on August 12th. So I have a 4 month old baby boy that is keeping em strong. I still want so bad to have a positive. I am so sad and scared. I do not know how to handle the next 24-72 hours of waiting to find out. We have 4 embryos transferred since only one was good and the others were fair. I am so nervous I just want to know! Good luck to you keep me posted!!

Well it was a negative. I guess my dream of having a biological child is over :-( I can not afford to do it again. I really wish insurance companies would understand that this is a medical problem and would help cover it. :-( Good luck to everyone else...I hope your dreams come true.

This is my first and hopefully only IVF with ISCI cycle. I am having a day 3 transfer tomorrow morning and have already started the progesterone injections and supositories to begin tomorrow. The ovidrel on my trigger day is causing pregnancy symptoms that are driving me crazy lol.  I am so excited. It has been a crazy ride. Two days before pre-op they almost cancelled our cycle because I had only 2 follicles. 2 days later I had 6 but only 3 large ones. On Wednesday we did retrieval and they got 9 eggs ... 7 mature enough ... 4 successful. The 4 are still doing great and are ready for day 3 transfer. We will have 2 transferred ... hoping for a positive test December 29th!

I too am under 30 and on my first round of ivf. I have been TTC for 6 years. I have moderate endometriosis and polysistic ovaries. I had 2 eggys put back on day 3 transfer on 12/01/12. When i had my egg collection they retrieved 21 eggs on the monday 12 of which fertilised on tuesday and by thursday morning i had 6 so had 2 transferred that day. Unfortunately none made it to the freezing stage and perished by saturday. Im now on day5 post transfer. Have felt pretty rough but due to the egg collection i think not the transfer, my stomach felt so sore and strained i just lay in bed for 3 days. Then yesterday i started to feel better until now today i am feeling a sharp pain consistently hurting a bit like a stitch in my lower right side and a heavy dull achy lower back. Anyone experience this or know what it is?
I probably could find someone who had the same but would have to read through a million threads lol! Trying to keep up the positive happy vibes but feeling very pessimistic as all those others perished and now relying on these 2 inside! Has anyone had a BFP when had no quality eggs that made it to the frozen stage?
Would love to hear from others in similar situation! :)

I had IVF treatment, only one egg retrieved, and this one egg fertilised and the doctors advised that I have a day one transfer (the day after the egg was retrieved). And two weeks later I was pregnant!! I now have a 4 month old healthy, wonderful daughter.

I was 37, and was told by the doctors not to get my hopes up, and that I had max 5% chance of it working!

I really want to say that no matter what the doctors say to you, you must always be positive, and hope and imagine every day that that little one is growing healthy inside. I also made sure that I was the healthiest I had ever been in my whole life. Thats what I did and it worked.

I wish you all the best, and remember always be positive. x

Hi everyone. I am new here and read all the stories. It helps very much knowing how many of us are going through the same process and I wanted to share my experience with you. Back to 2007 I had my 1st IVF cycle. All went well and I had 2 embryos (day 3) transferred. We were able to freeze 5 more embryos, all day 3. I ended pregnant and now I have a beautiful 4 years old daughter. Last August we tried for a frozen cycle (we had to use 3 embryos as one did not survive at all) and 2 good quality 3 days embryos were transferred. Unfortunately it did not work and we were quite disappointed. We decide to use the last 2 frozen embryos and I had a transfer on the 6th March (10 days ago). Today I used and old pregnancy test I had at home (since I was pregnant) I have to say that it expired end 2007 but I was so anxious that I decided to use it anyway. It came out negative. Made me feel sad even I know it could be too early (today is my 10d after ET) and also the test could not be in the best condition since it was a very old one. My Clinic told me not to do any test before the 19th March, but I am dying to know. If it does not work we do not have more frozen embryos and I am 43 so the chances of conceiving again with my own eggs are low. I have no symptoms at all, no bleeding, no sore breasts... Some period like cramps but very mild. I would even say I have lost some weight :( Anyone experiencing something similar? Please let me know your thoughts! Congratulations to  the ones already expecting and the best of luck for the ones still triyng :)

A little about me I am 45 had 3 embryos transferred on 9/15/2012 and I am now 5dpt they were transferred on day 3. I am scared, hopeful, anxious and every other adjective you can think of, I had cramping a couple of days after the transfer and swollen boobs.. But today not so much cramping. I guess I'm looking to talk so that I don't go completely crazy. Thanks for listening.

I'm 44 and so thrilled to be in the 2 wk wait. My own eggs with hubby's sp icsi 5 eggs resulted in 2 embies (one a surprise late bloomer) transferred on day 3 . I'm now 6dpt, last night period crampy feeling but no AF yet. I thought it was all over till I read everyone's posts. I'm VERY healthy, never drank, smoked, never done any drugs, not even coffee my whole life, doc said it doesn't make a difference, can't wait to do a victory dance in his office! 2 boys conceived naturally aged 9 and 13 always wanted one more. Hoping for a BFP, my blood test is not for not for another 12 days... think I'll try a HPT in 5 days (that would make it 11 days from transfer) Excited with nothing to lose!!

I had a Day 3 transfer with (2) 10 cell embryos, graded 2 1/2 and 3.  This is my first IVF procedure and I am 42, will be 43 in April...it worked!  I found out on Thursday I am pregnant:)  Quite shocked, as my AMH was .3!!!  Practically nonexistent ovarian reserve!  So I am 4 weeks and 2 days pregnant, according to my doctor.  I had been on Lupron, Menopure, Gonal-F, dexamethasone, DHEA, CoQ10 and folic acid along the way. Crinone, Estradiol and folic acid after the pregnancy news...I do another blood test this Monday to make sure my hormones are doubling, and am resting a LOT.  Crossing our fingers, and nervous for our doctor's appointment on November 7!  Praying I can carry this baby safely!  Symptoms along the way included an 8 lb weight gain(mostly water), a couple of headaches, bloating/gas, constipation, light cramping EXCEPT 'take my breath away cramping' on Day 8...I thought for sure my little embryo or embryos were dying:(  I guess it was the implantation that was so painful, maybe because I am older.  Anyway, God has a plan, and I just have to trust in him...thinking of all of you struggling through this process...prayers for everyone, xoxo, Sabatinimommy

You posted your question on an old thread, you might want to start a new thread to get more responses.  It is quite normal not to have any symptoms, or to have a ton of symptoms.  This whole process is unpredictable, and no two cycles are the same.  I had 0 symptoms during my 2ww, and I got a positive, so hang in there :) nwhen is your blood test??

Here is a timeline to let you know what is going on :). Hope it helps!!

Days Past Transfer (DPT)
*One - The embryo continues to grow and develop, turning from a 6-8 cell embryo into a morula
*Two - The cells of the morula continue to divide, developing into a blastocyst
*Three - The blastocyst begins to hatch out of its shell
*Four - The blastocyst continues to hatch out of its shell and begins to attach itself to the uterus
*Five- The blastocyst attaches deeper into the uterine lining, beginning implantation
*Six Implantation continues
*Seven- Implantation is complete, cells that will eventually become the placenta and fetus have begun to develop*
*Eight - Human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) starts to enter the blood stream
*Nine - Fetal development continues and hCG continues to be secreted
*Ten - Fetal development continues and hCG continues to be secreted
*Eleven - Levels of hCG are now high enough to detect a pregnancy

Hi Sarah328, hope I would get the response from you as I can see that you're active in 2010. I was wondering whether you had successful pregnancy? I really hope so.

Is there a lady who is above 45 y/o and trying to get pregnant for the first time? or do you know anybody?
