Had embryo transfer on Friday 21st and the clinic told me to take a test this Thurs (3rd Nov)... I'm going crazy waiting. Also, I keep taking early tests and getting negative. According to ClearBlue packaging the test I took this morning had a 56% chance of being accurate.

Just finding it really difficult not knowing, I'm still hoping that the test on Thurs might be positive (drinking a lot of water at the moment so my pee is pretty diluted) but am I just deluding myself?

Worst part is being on progesterone, your body reckons you're pregnant already - sore boobs, knackered all the time, bloating... I have been wanting to drink a lot (water!) and peeing a lot, and getting quite weird feelings in my lower tummy (but can't tell what is just wind from the progesterone!)

I need to stop obsessing about it I guess - at least if I get a negative on Thurs I'll have had some warning though.

P.S. It's male infertility for us - or not infertility exactly but retrograde ejaculation - it all gets sent into his bladder, not any good to me there is it? hmm

Hi there. I'm not on a 2ww just yet, hopefully EC will be a week tomorrow. But please don't drive yourself mad testing all the time. I understand it's frustrating but heartbreaking at the same time.
Good luck for Thursday, hope you get your BFP smile

hey csa yes I'm waiting. ET was on last Wednesday. Determined to not take an early test so if it fails I'll only break my heart once.

You still have a few more days. Best of luck x

I have been where you Are several times. Please stop taking tests you will drive yourself mad. I know it's hard but it's best to wait. Hope you get a good result x

Well... I took another one today and I think it's positive! (I know, I should have just waited until the date the clinic gave me - which is still not for another 3 days - I would have saved myself all this worry)

ekam you're so right! Don't do what I did! My reasoning was if it fails I'll be let down gradually instead of all at once - but I've been through so much upset the last few days, would have been so much better just to wait!
