Egg collection: 16.08
Transfer: 19.08
Told to test on 04.09

Mild cramping 24/25.08 late in evening and very very mild pink spotting (hardly visible).

5am this morning AF so did a pregnancy test and its negative. Period pains gone and very light flow - only when going to the toilet - nothing actually on towel. Sorry for TMI!

Is it the end? I know it probably is but just looking for other peoples experiences. Had IVF in 2004 which was straight forward and successful.

To be honest, unless you have a "full flow" between now and Saturday, you are best waiting until test day. You really can't tell much from anything odd happening at this stage. Early testing will almost always be false. But I know that the 2ww is extremely frustrating.

What ladymuck said. And definitely stay away from google- it's evil grin. You could prob test around 2nd Sept if you wanted to do, but not before then.

Even though it' 2 weeks after EC?

So there is a chance it might be ok? Wow!

Thank you.

It may be ok, providing you're not bleeding properly. Looking at your dates again, I'd say you could test accurately 1/9 as that's 16 days after EC. A lady on another thread got a BFN on day 14, but a BFP on day 16 I think. If you bleed properly, then it's almost definitely negative. I know how you're feeling believe me!

There was blood but there has been none since this morning. It was more than spotting.

Well back to waiting. Feeling slightly better than I did at 5 am this morning.

Thank you.

Well we got a BFN on our 4th cycle testing on the day that the hospital said. Thought nothing of it until I realised a week or so later that AF hadn't arrived. Retested to discover that I was in fact pg. Ds2 born the appropriate time later.
