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.

Hi, I have heard of many women getting pregnant after a 3 day transfer.  There is a gal on here that had a 3 day transfer and was told not to get her hopes up because it more than likely would not take.  She has a beautiful baby girl now!!  I am not sure about implantation.  Congratulations on your transfer, I hope that little bean sticks!

I got BFP on 10dp3t on second IVF, and 11dp3t on third one.  Both beta confirm on 12dp3t.
Best wish.

I, also did a day 3 transfer one week ago, today. So, I'm 7 days post transfer. Like an idiot, I did a pregnancy test yesterday and it was negative. Now, I'm not so hopeful . . . I'm tempted to keep taking one until Thursday when my blood test is scheduled. Do I have hope or should I be prepared for going through this again?

I think implantation can happen at any time but, from what I've read, it typically happens 6-10 days after retrieval. I was almost certain I felt it on my post retrieval day 7, but now that I am most likely not pregnant, it must have been something else.

I had a day 3 transfer and a bfp.  On day 5 they can be more selective but on day 3 the # of embryos transferred is typically higher so your odds a similar.
Good luck!

Thanks for that information it really helped.  Are you pregnant now?  How did you feel 2-3 days after you transfer>

I don't think you should get BFP at 7dp3t.  Negative just tell you the HCG is out of system.  So when you see BFP in the next couple days, It'll be the true BFP.
after transfer I feel cramps, bloat because of egg retrieve, I don't think we should feel any thing at this early stage.  1 day I got BFP I always get so dizzy, it suddenly happens I need to sit down for a while and it gone, then I know yeah, I might get BFP in next day.  Beside that, I don't have any symptoms at all either score BB.  But everyone is different, I just share my experience.  You may get something else or no symtom at all and I wish you both get BFP this month.  Good luck ladies

I got a bfp and my little girl was born less than 4 weeks ago.  Now I look back and can't believe how much I cried after my day 3 transfer (I was so upset it wasn't a day 5!).

After transfer I did not feel anything.  In fact I had no symptoms during my 2ww.

Hang in there!!!
Come on BFP!

Thanks for keeping my hopes up! I have certainly been down in the dumps yesterday and today. . . I thought early hcg levels start appearing soon after implantation, which should have happened by now, right? Today is 7dpt and still nothing. Am I crazy? This is all-consuming and I can't stop thinking about it.

It is to early to test.  Just relax and go and test on the day that your RE advised.  I know that it is hard not knowing but all you can do right now is just relax as much as possible and focus on positive thought because at this stage stress can be your worse enemy.  I test on the 24th.  Lets stay Positive.  Good Luck and keep me posted!!!!

Thanks. You are doing this much better than I am! I don't know why I am having such a hard time with it. I went through this 3 years ago and now have a 2-year old. I knew I was pregnant long before the test and just didn't consider that it would be negative. I guess, this time it didn't go as well, we did a day 3 transfer with less quality embryos, so maybe that's part of it . . .

I'll be thinking about you. Good luck, take your advice and DON"T take a test! I didn't last time and it was soooo much smoother for me.

You are going to be just fine.  What day did you have your transfer?  I had my 3 day transfer on Friday.  I have mild cramping and sore breast but that can be from the progesterone.  I just want for you to remain calm and positive.  I am scared to but at this point everything is in GODS hands and all we can do is pray that he see's it through.  Now get some rest!! Talk with you after my appt tomorrow.

You're totally right! 2009 is going to be so crazy for us. God is going to make this happen if we can handle it, and possibly give us a sign that we have enough on our plate. My 3dt was one week ago today. I had cramping on Thursday, which was 7days post retrieval, but haven't felt anything since. That's why I thought if that was implantation, I would have had traces of hcg. I'm going to stop worrying and let God see this through as it should be.

Good luck on your appointment tomorrow! Let me know how it goes.

I had a 3 day transfer and am days away from having our son enter the world. I had slight cramping around 7 dpt and other than that really had no symptoms until a few weeks after the BFP.

Congratulations! 13 days, so you'll have a late Feb/early March little baby. Is it your first? My son (2 in March) makes me more proud than anything. He makes everything that seems awful, actually okay.  So, no matter what happens on Thursday, I know anything is possible and we'll just try again if we have to. Keep me posted.

Results are in the RE's office called and said that my Estrogen level was 1676 and progesterone was greater than 20.  They said that the numbers looked really good.  Now all I can do is keep praying and waiting to see what comes out of this.  Did you have your levels checked after your IVF cycle and if so what was your numbers.

I'm so glad things look good! I am saying big prayers for you. I had my bloodwork done 4 days after transfer and they didn't tell me my estrogen level. My progesterone was off the chart, so they stopped injections. It was like 239 or something.

Thanks for keeping me going . . . Advice to you WHITTFRED: DO NOT TAKE A PREG TEST!!! It doesn't sound like you're going to but they totally psyched me out and I got weird about it. I had a weird feeling I must be pregnant so I went back and looked at yesterday's test and there was a little light pink line. So, I ran and took another and it's a little darker. So, there I totally lost hope when there really should have been a lot of hope. Keep me updated and I'll do the same. I go in on Thursday.
202615 tn?1271369504
YES! YES!  YES!,  I am so happy for you so when do you go for your beta?  Keep me posted
202615 tn?1271369504
By the way how many days post transfer are you?
Avatar universal
I'm 8dpt today and I go for the beta on Thursday. I am so excited, I'm on cloud nine. I had literally gotten used to the idea that we would have to do this again, and almost became okay with it. Gosh, I learned my lesson, huh?

So, the answer to the question that started this is yes, a 3dt can be successful! I just need to remember that I need to get my numbers Thursday and hope for a healthy pregnancy.

I'll keep you posted.

What symptoms did you start having to make you test again?  I am sooooo happy for you.  I tell you what I have been so tired today that it is not funny.
Avatar universal
I didn't have any symptoms . . . I just started thinking about the small cramps that led up to the big, huge cramp I had on the left side last Thursday. That was 7dpt, which is the day I keep hearing about implantation (can be 6-10 days). What I did was go back and look at the test from yesterday, and there was, in fact a light pink line. I guess I didn't wait long enough. I got excited and took another. Comparing them, it makes sense because today's test is a darker line. But, no symptoms at all, which is what I hear is normal.

So funny you say you're tired. I was exhausted the 3 or 4 dpt!!! I mean, I didn't want to get off the couch and I napped all of those days. I NEVER nap and am the most energetic person. These hormones do crazy things.

Let me know how you're feeling this week. I'm thinking about you!!!!

BTW, how many did you have transferred?
