I did a day 5 ET with 2 blast. On days 6-8 I had some mild cramping which my RE said could be from implantation. Then on the day before my Beta test I had some nausea during the afternoon. Beta was done 11 days past ET and I got a BFP!!!
Try not to worry to much, alot of people say they feel no symptoms at all and still get a BFP.
Best of luck to you.

We transfered 2 and froze 4. All at blast stage. The ET was on 4/7. I go for my 3rd Beta test tomorrow. I am about 4wks pregnant now. I know the waiting is the hardest part.
So did you transfer 3 or 2? Did you freeze any?

i transfered 3 embies&suppose there r 3 to freeze in lab but they were growing slower so they said will wait till reach good size then freeze but for my 3 transfered they were good at exact time of transfer,my transfer was last thursday 24/4 &still i'll test pregnancy next thursday,a whole waiting week waits me,u said u'll make 3rd beta test,how many times do we make it?is it quantitative or qualitative? my RE said my 1st test will b qualitative,do u think i have chance that these embies complete?how do u find 4wks pregnancy?what symptoms do u have?&from when do u began to have any symptoms? iam so sorry for so many questions but realy i feel lost&wanna know what to do&where iam standing.
wish u best of luck with your transfered embies.

I had my second transfer a week ago and am going for my test in 3 days. First transfer didn't work and I got a very painful and extremely heavy period 3 days before my test. Both transfers were with blasties. With the first transfer I didn't get any symptoms at all. With this second one I've felt a little bit of breast soreness, mild nausea and fatigue. I have also had a lot of cramping, but mainly in my hips and back, rather than the usual lower abdomen period pain. Anyone have any thoughts on this? Really scared if this doesn't work and I need to go through cycle 2 as I got ovarian hyperstimulation after egg collection the first time. Was in hospital for 2 weeks as a result. Wish me luck ladies. I wish all of you every success and lots of successful pregnancies!!!

i had 3pt on 8/3/09. about 6 days after, i had strong cramps. only thing i could do to help was to sleep. after that, the cramps got lighter and lighter. dr. transfered 3 eggs that were A+, A-, and B+. with my 1st transfer, i  had sottiong and blood clots. this time i have no spotting. my breasts were sore at the beginning, but today is day 12pt and my breasts are sore but not as much as they were at the beginning. i am naustious mostly during the day. i usually suck on a lime to ease the icky feeling. at the beginning, i peed like twice every hour, but it has calmed down.
when i 1st tested hormone level, prog. was 52 and estrogen was 1048. went in again on monday, prog. dropped to 28 and estrogen to 328. is this normal? wat does these results indicate?
has anyone gotten a bfp eventhough their levels dropped before beta test?

I have 8 days to my 1st beta test after my ET on Aug 12. Out of 11 mature eggs only 4 fert after icsi and only 1 viable embryo. I too had OHSS after egg retrieval and am really hoping that this works. So far no signs of period coming so keeping fingers crossed.

Does anyone know how many days after ET a period will come if it didn't work?
Avatar universal
well, for my 1st ivf cycle (failed), i didn't get my period until i stopped taking the meds. i guess it depends on your body. but don't think negative. u must always stay positive! don't expect a period, expect a baby.
i wish u best of luck!! keep me posted.
Avatar universal
Thanks for well wishes. You're right must not expect period...think baby  instead!
I don't have any cramping but do have breast tenderness and an unusual sensation in lower abdomen that reminds me of menstrual cramps but it's not painful. Can anyone relate to this?

I also had 11 follies collected and of those only 5 fertilized and we were able to transfer 3 embies in also on August 12.  Is your beta 8/28?  That is when mine is.

This is my 3rd IVF and the last 2 cycles I always got my period 3 days before my beta.  I am hoping this time I make it past Tuesday and then I will feel like I'm in the clear.

I've been having cramping since Monday afternoon and tonight it is going in waves.
Avatar universal
I also had 3dt. i started cramping and had nausea 3 days after my transfer. it only lasted for about 2 days, then it stopped. the day before my beta, i had nausea. so, once again, i think it depends on the person's body.

good luck!
924307 tn?1243892892
I haven't had nausea but then again I've been really hungry yesterday and today so as soon as I get hungry I eat.  If I don't eat then I get crabby and not feel good.

test at the doctors will be monday...is it too early for a home pregnacy test to beACCCURATE? (firstTRY BEEN MARRIED 10 YEARS)

For me, I was too afraid to use a hpt. i thought if it came back negative, i would be too devasted. so, i waited for my beta instead. she only has a few days to find out. tell her to relax and pray for the best.
take her for a pedicure to take her mind off of it. I know it's hard because it plays on the mind every breathing second.

good luck with everything!

My first Beta test is on Aug 27.

I started having some premenstrual like symptoms beginning on Aug 21 and spotting started on the 23rd. Spotting has changed from brown to a reddy brown today.....totally devastated thinking that my period is coming only two days before beta. I broke down and did a HPT after work and to my complete surprise two lines. I know in my mind that this could still be a false positive (though I am 17 days post HCG shot...recommended is 10 days with a 5000 IU) but it at least has given me some hope. Will take a second HPT tomorrow morning to be sure...getting a bit neurotic I think! Anyways, at this point I'm just hoping that my spotting doesn't turn into full period and that it will stop soon. Who knows I've read that some women spot for the whole first trimester.

Good luck with your test...lots of baby dust!

Hi Ladies

Thanx for sharing your experiences and advise. I juz did my ET on day2 on 8/19 with 3 embryos. 2nd IVF but with much better quality and more eggs this time round.

Felt crampy sinz 4th day [8/22]. Had breast tenderness sinz ET. Otherwise alls well. It seems that lower abs cramping is quite common, at least I feel less worried. Clinic told me that its common symptom esp if it felt pulling sensation or like menses. So I sure hope my test on 9/3 will bear good tidings. Nurse told me to do HPT a day b4 test but to only use ClearBlue kit. Apparently this product won't give false positive. Not sure is this is true but she's the nurse, there must be a reason to suggest that.

P/S: For those at the beginning of the cycle, A suggestion to cure OHSS, I was told to take raw 2 egg whites to cure the over bloatedness. Worth a try!

Praying for the best and the best wishes to all you moms-to-be as well!

Good luck with your test on the 3rd. I did my first beta today and OMG +++++ve with level of 140. I started getting some light to moderate bleeding (dark red) and cramping on the evening of the 25th and has been constant since then but apparently cramping and bleeding can be a side effect of prometrium suppositories. Just praying that the bleeding and cramping stops in the next day or two.

Next beta is Sept 3rd so I'll be right there beside you in spirit getting blood drawn and hoping for baby.

Good luck everyone

CONGRATS on the +ve results. So nice to hear of great news like yours.

OMG... what a coincidence that u r doing yr 2nd test on 9/3 as we!!! I believe yr situation now is only temporary. Am sure your 2nd beta will be just fine! ;D
Yes, yes plenty of good wishes and prayers coming your way and I need all the spiritual support that I can get.

However, my cramping has sort of subsided so is the breast tenderness. Was wondering if you or any ladies out there experience mucus like [light] discharge? I've been experiencing this for the past 3 days and today as well. Could be due to the Crinone insertion but it more watery than the crinone cream. Also noticed a fall in body temperature this a.m. [8/30]. Wonder if I should be concern. Guess I need to ring up the Dr's office on Monday to find out.

Unfortunately, I am no longer pregnant. Ended up in ER on Saturday morning with extreme bleeding. They did a beta in the hospital and I was now only at 19 :( Had to get a rogam shot as I'm O- and I need to prevent antibodies from developing so that my blood doesn't attack any future babies...if we can be so lucky. Hubby right now is very pessimistic and a little hesitant to go through all of this again due to the emotional and financial strain.....any feedback and or suggestions on how I can help him with this.

just pray and hope for the best. u'll never go through something u can't handle. whenever there's a no, there is ALWAYS a better yes. best of luck in the fututre!
