Confused about my cycle 10dp5dt

Hey everyone 👋🏻

I'm currently on day 10 after my FET last Wednesday the 12th. Feeling ok so far, have had some minor symptoms (sore boobs, minor cramps, emotional, hungry ALL THE TIME)...could be the pessaries...could be period due who bloody knows???!!! I just have one question which is really bugging me. My average cycle is around 35 days. It can be shorter and can be longer though some times. When I had my fresh cycle I started bleeding on day 6 post transfer and had full flow by day 7/8. I'm obviously happy that I haven't started bleeding yet but I'm thinking that if this is a 'natural cycle' then I wouldn't of expected my period yet anyway? So do you think it would have come by now ie: day 28/29 or should I still expect it on my usual 35 days? Sorry if that is reaaaally confusing. I've confused myself!!! OTD is Monday. Think I'm just gonna do it tomorrow though whilst hubby is here and no work etc. Nervous but hopefull 🤞🏻💕 xx

Hiya, I believe you will be ok to test tomorrow as the hcg levels don't take into account when you would have ovulated as you didn't actually ovulate. The egg transfer is effectively your ovulation day +5d. Your body just needs about 8-9 days after a 5dt for the hcg to become high enough to measure (as the embie will then be 13-14 days old). The hospital just says otd is 11-12dpt to be on the safe side.

Not wanting to get your hopes up but your symptoms are exactly what I had when I got my bfp (after an fet) 3wks ago!...I tested 9dp5dt (otd was 11dp5dt) and got a strong line.

Your story sounds so like mine as on my fresh cycle I also started bleeding around 6dpt....and I also tested early on my own this time...🙈 I didn't want my dh to have a sleepless night unnecessarily but when I got the bfp I woke him up at 6am on a sat lol!

I think you'll be fine to test tomorrow...good luck!!! 🍀🍀🍀
