No personal experience yet. However, if you tested 4dp5dt, then that's equivalent to tasting 9 days past ovulation or CD23... So definitely a few days too early to see anything. Fingers crosssd for you;)
I don't know much about IVF but the negative will give you a good baseline I think? I've seen threads where people are wondering if their positive is "real" or from the transfer hormones, so at least you know those are out of your system and any BFP you get from now on will be "real" (please excuse me if this is a load of nonsense! Oh, and good luck! )
Indiana, if only it was that simple lol The 'real ness' is about the fact there is more chance of failure than success with IVF, and a lot of embryo transfers end in chemical pregnancies and miscarriages. Women are always wondering if it's 'real' as they might test positive only to have an early miscarriage 2 days later...
Hey india no need to apologise, and thanks for your message
I had to have donor egg so didn't have a trigger shot this time - but I think you're right that the trigger shot can cause a bfp for a few days.
jojo I think once you're on this merry go round you learn so much about what can go wrong, it gets difficult to see what could go right, I do have an internal panic when girls who've got diffed easily then tell everyone the minute they've got a BFP - Inside I'm screaming 'don't tell anyone yet, don't you know how many thing can go wrong?!' But of course they don't & who am I to burst their bubble lol!
Anyway, on a happy note, I had loads of dreams about doing pregnancy tests last night [all +] so I did another cheap one first thing - 8dp5dt - I think I got a very faint line so fingers crossed for OTD on Friday
Thanks everyone I still feel like I may have made it up, 6 bloody years takes its toll on your faith!! I've never even had a positive test before, I am trying hard not to stress about it but I still can't really believe it...
I've done a few tests since then for reassurance which I know is daft but it makes me feel better!
Next stage is early scan on 8th June [will be 7+2] then I think I will be able to breathe, and maybe even actually use the p word
Congratulations! I'm having my scan at 7+1 on the 9th June so fingers crossed for us both. Not IVF but I was on the highest dose of clomid having failed at all the other levels. Also doesn't feel real to finally be pregnant with my first!
Congratulations to you too Iam fingers crossed for us both next week yes, have you had any symptoms? I've had constant nausea & total tiredness for the last 10 days or so, I'm trying to see them as positive signs though!
