Going through first IVF also, how did your blood test turn out?  I had a negative HPT this morning but my blood test isn't for two more days.  Really nervous! No symptoms at all?  Is that normal?

I had embryo transfer 5 days ago,  2 top grade embryos. I did a home pregnancy test today and came out negative.
Is there still a chance of pregnancy?

any info would be greatly appreciated as it's very difficult to stay positive.
thanks,

3 Day and 5 Day Transfers
For those who are on their TWW and want to know what is going on in there here is a list for 3 and 5 day transfers.

This is what happens in a 5dt:

-1dpt ..embryo is growing and developing
0dpt... Embryo is now a blastocyst
1dpt....Blastocyst hatches out of shell on this day
2dpt.. Blastocyst attaches to a site on the uterine lining
3dpt.. Implantation begins,as the blastocyst begins to bury in the lining
4dpt.. Implantation process continues and morula buries deeper in the lining
5dpt.. Morula is completely implanted in the lining and has placenta cells & fetal cells
6dpt...Placenta cells begin to secret HCG in the blood
7dpt...More HCG is produced as fetus develops
8dpt...More HCG is produced as fetus develops
9dpt...HCG levels are now high enough to be immediately detected on HPT

this is what happens in a 3dt :

1dpt ..embryo is growing and developing
2dpt... Embryo is now a blastocyst
3dpt....Blastocyst hatches out of shell on this day
4dpt.. Blastocyst attaches to a site on the uterine lining
5dpt.. Implantation begins as the blastocyst begins to bury in the lining
6dpt.. Implantation process continues and morula buries deeper in the lining
7dpt.. Morula is completely implanted in the lining and has placenta cells &
fetal cells
8dpt...Placenta cells begin to secret HCG in the blood
9dpt...More HCG is produced as fetus develops
10dpt...More HCG is produced as fetus develops
11dpt...HCG levels are now high enough to be immediately detected on

On a 5 day transfer, you write that HCG levels will be high enough to be immediately picked up on HPT.  --If I'm not mistaken, it DOES depend of the sensitivity of the HPT, as they vary from brand to brand. --Correct?

Which OTC brands do you suggest?  --I've found a few online that detect as low as 20-25, but it's too late for me to order them --beta is tomorrow. Which means I would have to wait 4 days after fertilization to get a positive.  (since HCG increases by 25 every day.)  

This is my first IVF, using donor egg, 5 day transfer.  (2 blasts)

Good luck to everyone.

I can tell you I test on the day before my beta and mine was neg.  My beta was positive though.  My level was only a 9 and no hpt will detect that.  I ended with a neg beta by the time of my next beta.

You are correct on the HCG levels - http://www.fertilityplus.org/faq/hpt.html


Most hpt will tell you the level they measure.  You can get an early detection hpt just about anywhere look for one that measure around 20.  If it is neg then you will have to wait for your beta to confirm.

Best of luck with the Beta and let me know how it goes!

Hi Hope,

I did a 4 day transfer on May 22nd. I'm testing BFN on all my HPTs (all sevenD-billion of em!) But I too am not losing hope. I don't have any tips for your question but I wanted to let you know there are people who are going thru this with you.

Hang in there and stay positive--- praying for BFPs to us both!!

Hi I did a 6 day blastocyst transfer on 7/23/10 an had my first beta on 7/28/10. It was less than 2- sonit was negative!  The only symtoms I have are sore breasts and being very tired/ sleepy. My nurse says it's probably from the progesterone & that my next beta on 7/30/10 will also be neg. Anyone have similar situation?

Hi, I am from the UK, and I have reading all this comforting posts for the last week now.  I know this is an old post, but I am currently 7dpet 5 day transfer.  We had 2 reasonable embies transfererred.  I have had slight cramping since the transfer, sometimes a little back ache, headache, and tender boobies.  We have succumbed to the HPT and keep getting a negative, it is so destroying.  One minute I feel totally like it hasnt worked at all, then I read the forums and feel positive again, but today at day 7 am feeling very low, I have the bloodwork this Thursday and am dredding it considering I have been eagerly awaiting it for a week now!!  I was wondering if anyone here has had little or no symptoms like us, and if they still had a BFP at the bloodwork?
Thanks in advnace to anyone to replies, I know it was all some time ago, but this wait is driving me CRAZY!!

You're not crazy...I'm only 4dp5dt and am already starting to doubt and analyze every little twinge (really from the moment I left the RE :).  I have a friend I met at the clinic who actually got a negative hpt 10dp5dt and her beta came back positive.  She is now 13wks with a singleton and all is looking well and healthy.  I know it's torture, but try not to lose all hope until you hear from your RE...we pay them the big bucks to ask them questions like this.  Call and speak to your coordinator about your concerns, if nothing else it may sustain you until your beta:)  I hope it all works out for you!

I took a hpt 5 days post transfer and it was negative.  My first beta, however, which was 9 days post transfer was positive!  And so was my second beta three days after that!  I didn't have any symptoms other than MILD cramps, sore boobs (thanks to the progesterone shots, I'm sure) and super fatigue.  And those didn't start until about 8 or 9 days post transfer.  They're still not bad.  So don't lose hope!

Hi guys thank you both so much for your responses, it is so comforting.

Wow you friend had a BFP after all that, thats amazing and give me so much more hope!!  We really want this child, I am 35 and having got any family of my own worth speaking about had crap childhood (abuse) and so want to give a child the childhood I would of loved to have safe and bright and FULL of love.  My DH talks to my belly each knight telling them to grow nicely and give mummy all the jipp they want if it means they will grow fully lol.  Cramping is bad today more so when I sit down, I keep running to the loo on knicker watch lol.  2 Days to BT its funny cause we have been feeling like the 2ww is soooo long, now its nearly here at the end I am feeling nervous lol  Cant win can we

Much love and luck to you both and I REALLY REALLY hope you both have BFP coming your way, you deserve it!!  Love from the UK

Well, I think it is all over for us.  Got pink blood and brown clots (sorry tmi) this lunchtime, get worse throughout the day.  Cant stop crying, my poor DH, came home from work and had a cuddle and cry with me.  Feel so so sad, but am already looking to the next course with positivity!!

Good luck to all you others waiting for BFP, take it easy and rest up, its all so so precious

Hello ladies, As many of you described your feelings i had pretty much the same ones. The only thing that gave me a kind of good impression was 3 days ago when i started to get nausea, which for me was new, at 6pm(strange) and get really tired during the day. But the nausea thing was the alarm for me. I didn't want to take the HPT test until i get the blood test.
I had my test yesterday. Today in the morning i had intensive cramps, which i tought my menstr will come. Few hours later my doctor called me and said my test wasPOZITIVE. I  am so exited!!! GOD IS SO GREAT!

So don't get frustrated by the cramps, even tough i beleive these are our enemies in the waiting period.  Have faith, strong patience and beleive until you see the results! :)
