Early Pregnancy Test

ElizabethS - April 19

I have committed the Cardinal Sin of the 2ww! I took an early pregnancy test this morning and it came out negative, :-[ I had my eggs retrieved last Monday and transferred back in last Thursday. I am supposed to get my blood work results this Saturday. (so it is not really a two week wait for me)

I am only on progesterone and I don't think that would interfer with my pregnancy test.

Now I am just sad and feeling dumb. I guess I got sick of waiting.

Has anyone done this before? Should I believe in these results? I have a little bit of hope that we still might be pregnant, but it is fading quickly.

Elisabeth, I really think it is too early to believe those reults! It's only been ,what, 5 days? Don't get down on yourself yet girl! You only have a 1ww? Too early to determine for sure! Try not to get upset yet. I started hpting early too but early for me was 9 days! Take it easy. cassandra

It's way too early to test. I would do things exactly the way your doctor tells you to. I am wondering why you only have a 1ww? That seems like too short of a wait. Can they know for sure after 1 week? I am not a doctor, but it doesn't sound right to me. I will toss a ton of baby dust your way for a positive! Take care.

Thanks girls - hopefully my post will help others who might consider trying to find out on their own. My dh told me that there is a reason why doctors have you test when they do.

I do not know why my dr. tests so early. I will actually have the first blood work done on Thursday (one week after the transfer) They normally do not tell you the results....it is used as a baseline for the Saturday test. I will be asking questions on Thursday based off everyone here having to wait two weeks.

I am still hopeful and more dumb then sad. You would have thought that infertility would have taught me a little bit more about patience.

Elizabeth, I can only imagine the temptation to test early. I test on the 27th (2ww). Is your b/w Friday for progesterone level? I test today, which is one week after my IUI and my level is 17 (I'm told 15 or higher is good), so I don't have to use any progesterone supplements. Don't feel silly. I actually told my DH to hide the extra hpt we have at home so I want test early. He's extremely patience!!

Don't be discouraged...this still can be your month.

I will test on Thursday, but I am not sure what it is for.(progestin or hcg)

Unfortunately, my fertility office doesn't share much information, and often I'm not sure what to ask.

I will ask for more clarification on Thursday. I am glad you had positive results. That might be enough to get you through the next week.

Baby Dust to all of us!

Well....I am feeling a bit more relieved. I just read on another ivf site that hcg levels can be detected by a home pregnancy test no earlier than day 12 after transfer.

I hate how this process can make you so nutty. I always thought I would be able to be so cool and relaxed. Who was I kidding.....they should make very inexpensive day spas for women to retreat to in their 2ww.

Thanks for letting me share my craziness.

Hi Elizabeth,

Please dont be too stressed about the pregnancy test. I know it's hard to be patient and we are all here waiting with you and supporting you.

I hope Saturday goes well for you. I will be praying for you

Elizabeths. When I did my fresh transfer i started testing on day 10 and did not get a positive until day 13 and then a positive blood test on day 14.
Good luck. The 2WW is sooooooo hard.
