The IVF roller coaster continues...

Today was OTD for our day 5 FET blastocyst.

Did a Clearblue test which said pregnant 1-2 weeks and the clinic test had a second line, but it was very very faint!

Went to the clinic and had bloods tests done, as I think they could tell how worried I was on the phone.

The nurse looked at the test and said they would hope that it would be more visible than it was and it's likely that with the tests showing positive, that the blood will show pregnancy hormones.

The bloods came back as 29.9.

The nurse said normally it should be around 30+.....she said she has seen worse before with happy endings.

Back to the clinic on Monday to repeat the bloods.

To top it all off, I've had some spotting this afternoon too.

Feeling frustrated!! :-(

Fingers crossed it stays positive for you! Given how many people complain about Clear Blue saying negative when it's a positive that is a good sign. At least your clinic does bloods rather than rely on HPTs! Good luck! X

They didn't offer the blood tests, I just asked them if they can be done to try and help me stay sane. I'm still doing tests too over the weekend..x

My HCG level was 14 when the clinic did my bloods- I'm now 24 weeks pregnant with twins so keep faith. Make sure you drink lots of water and rest. Good luck xx
