So since this is the first time we actually made it to a transfer, I've been wondering how getting your period works if your transfer isn't successful? Will it come on its own, even with taking Estrace & PIO? Or will it not come until after you stop all that? I guess I'm just wondering if I should be looking for a period before my beta happens. Right now I'm kind of in that stage where I kinda hope I see a little spotting because I feel like it could be implantation bleeding...but then my mind kicks in and is like, but it could mean a period too.
This TWW is not for the faint of heart...I am literally analyzing every little twinge, tickle or pinch. And I told myself I wouldn't test until late next week (I'm traveling for work Tue-Thur and don't want to deal with seeing negatives when I have to be away from home and present in front of a room full of strangers), but now I'm getting antsy. Ugh! What's the earliest any of you have tested?
I tested positive at 5dp5t with my first transfer (loss) Tested positive at 5dp5dt with my second transfer. Tested negative at 5 and 6dp5dt before getting a faint positive on 7dp5dt (CP) Tested for the first time at 6dp5dt on this one and got a positive.
If you can hold out, but want to test early, I'd try to wait until 7dp5dt (although clearly I've never done so)
I have never had implantation bleeding or spotting.
It depends on the period. I've had it start while still on progesterone. I've also been told to stop progesterone once I get a BFN or negative beta and had my period start a day or so later. Also I never had implantation spotting.
I honestly hate testing at home. I hate seeing BFNs since I've seen so many over the years, so I rarely test early. In the past, for my first IVF I tested right before my beta and it was negative and then so was my beta. So I was crushed twice, because I thought for some reason my beta would be different than the home test. The second time, I just never tested and waited for the nurse to call with my beta results. That time they were positive and I bawled on the phone.
I'm not sure what I'll do this time, but itll probably be one of those 2 options again. I like living in ignorant bliss and hoping I'm pregnant as long as I can before that hope is crushed.
Fingers crossed this TWW goes by quickly and you get good news soon!!

Thanks ladies! I know the implantation spotting is a long shot...but it's a little something to hold onto lol. I also had DH order some low HCG tests on Amazon today. We'll see if I can actually hold out till next Thursday or if I test once they arrive.
