I had 2 x 3 day embryos transferred last Thursday. Both were Grade 3 embryos, 9 cells - described as a high 3/low 2.
On Friday I had really bad abdominal pain to the point I couldn’t move and my stomach expanded by 16cm. I went to A&E on Saturday and was admitted with mod-severe OHSS. I was discharged on Tuesday as the condition had improved.
Returned yesterday (7dp3dt) for bloods to check all was ok - one was a hCG test - it showed under 5 units. Dr said to not hold much hope as this and the fact the OHSS is getting better don’t bode well.
Having serious period pains since yesterday evening. I’d usually be topping up with ibuprofen at this point but that small chance that the embryos may have stuck is holding me back.
So - grade 3 embryos, recovering from OHSS, negative beta at 7dp3dt, and period pains - doesn’t sound good. I know each of these have a positive - grade 3 embryos do go on stick and develop, OHSS symptoms do diminish in some and they still have a bfp, a test at 7dpt is early, period pains can be normal etc but the whole picture together doesn’t currently inspire much confidence 😢.
I’m returning for repeat bloods on Xmas eve. The hCG test then would be at 11dpt so more likely to give me a final result.
Wish me luck please.
