14 days post 3 day transfer = BFN

Hello everyone, So today was official test day and sadly for us this journey has come to an end. Today, there is a part of me that wants to give up on this cruel rollercoaster of a ride that I never wanted to sign up to in the first place. We are sad but I know the grief will pass and when it does, I’ll come out fighting ready to move onto donor eggs. After testing this morning I wanted to crawl back into bed and sob my eyes out and just cocoon myself for the rest of the day. Instead, we went for an 8 mile hike in the sun across a beautiful range of mountains. There was just us, nobody else in sight apart from a few mountain goats. It was the peace we needed to think through all our thoughts. We must focus on the positives, we still have each other and a week left of this beautiful holiday. Thank goodness we don’t have to function at work this week as I know we’d be more than hopeless.

I want to thank you all for the amazing support you have given me during this last year. I would never have had the strength if it wasn’t for you guys cheering me from the sidelines and putting a smile back on my face on the days I thought I may never smile again. You are all truly beautiful people.

Thank you Xx

Im really sorry for your BFN, they never get any easier! You gave it your all and that's the best we can do! Sounds like youve done the best thing and gotten out to clear the head. It maybe doesnt lessen the pain but Im glad you have found some positives in just being with each other! Big hugs lovely!xx

Hi lovely, I'm so sorry to hear this :( the cycle went so well I was really crossing my fingers for you.

I'm in exactly the same place. You /we have given it our all. Its flipping exhausting and tough.

I'm taking time now, I've actually been enjoying stepping off the roller-coaster and reengaging with life and bits of myself which I had lost. It's been so tough. I'm going to take some time and maybe get my head around donor eggs, but my partner isn't keen on that. So I don't know what will happen.

I wish you so much love and strength. Well done, it sounds like you have a great partner and a brilliant attitude. I'm sure you'll get your rainbow baby one day. Much love xxx

Exhausting..... is an understatement! Wishing you all the best with the next step of your journey. In the meantime, enjoy having the time off the rollercoaster! It’s taken us a year to get our heads around donor eggs. We had implications counselling which was the breakthrough for us. Xx

Bfns are so hard. It sounds like you are being so positive, getting out today was a good move, even better that you were both able to reflect by yourselves. Good luck with your donor cycle whenever you’re ready xx

Oh jengi I'm so sorry to hear that

I've had a few failed cycles and to see no line or not pregnant is devastating

I hope that what I say now doesn't upset you as I don't want to confuse you but I just wanted to ask if you have only used the clear blue test?/

I only ask as they are nowhere near as sensitive as the first response tests and although by 14dp5dt you would likely get an accurate result it has often been the case that through ivf we implant later or your hcg levels are just a little lower atm.

Maybe you could do another test in a couple days to be sure before you stop ivf meds? Or your clinic can do blood tests as they are more sensitive?

But it sounds like you have a positive and strong mindset and I'm sure this will carry you through - I'm glad you have each other to get you through this

Wishing the best for you both xx
