The dramas of early testing...UPDATE

Hey Ladies, it's been a while. Well 6 days ago we transferred 2 very healthy embryos. Of course being a POAS addict, I decided to start testing. This has now become a huge regret. DH and me are now in limbo as to should we believe this or not. So this is my FRER from this morning, DH kept saying that he couldn't see anything so I took the darn thing apart. The first pic is immediately after taking it apart, the second one is having been exposed for about an hour. Also, the last is a blue dye. I didn't realize I bought them till I got home. I'm calling that a BFN.

So early BFP or what? I have my beta on Monday either way. BTW, I started testing due to a lot of cramping and back aches, I could swear AF is coming. It's due tomorrow. Sad

TODAYS TEST
It's 7dpt. It's very light, so we aren't jumping for joy just yet. We just gave each other a celebratory high five that it is darker than yesterdays

I see a little something but I don't trust blue dyes and 6DPO is SOOOO early. Please keep us posted!

Just seeing this today...I'm very hopeful for you with yesterday's and today's test!! I'd say your pregnant! I pray this is a very sticky little bean (or beans ;)) in there.

Ooooooo I like the looks of today's!!!

(Psst - she's 7dpt (post transfer, not DPO) so correct me if I am wrong Mari, but that makes todays more like 10DPO, right?)

I think it looks good!

For the month after a positive test, I feel like AF will start tomorrow.

That pink one looks like a BFP! Did you have any HCG shots or anything with your IVF cycle though? Were they 3 day or 5 day transfers?

Yes you are right; however, i am not sure if in terms of implanting and being able to test is technically the same.

Rachel, it is after a 4 day transfer. Yes i had an hcg shot in aug 10th so it should be out if my system by now.

We are trying very hard to just be optimistic especially because of cramping and backaches.

today's test looks darker and so that is good, are you still on progesterone? It made me spot when I was on it.

Congratulations, I can see lines in all except the blue dye test, and nice darker line today!

I always spot at the time my AF is due - pregnant or not, and I get wicked cramps that make me sure AF is coming. It has never been an issue though. Keeping everything crossed for you!!

Thank you still waiting for phone call. I will update ASAP! RE couldn't find a source of bleeding, but he increased my progesterone as a precaution for now. Test is nice and dark like yesterdays, and uterus was perfect. So this could be it, but I won't call it till that darn nurse confirms it for me!!!

Oh fantastic honey!!! SO so excited for you!!! Smile

Don't worry about the blood. It's early, not that abnormal, and I know a bunch of IVF ladies that say it's more common to have the blood with an IVF pregnancy. Be excited!

Can't wait for your beta!!! Smile
