Hi I am 4dp5dt so I know the struggle. DONT TEST!! I did a very early test and have been depressed all day. I’m waiting at least another 4 days before trying again. Best of luck xx

Oh I’m like a one woman roller coaster. Talking to my stomach, convinced it’s worked one minute and then crying because i think it deffo hasn’t a few minutes later!

Physically I just feel a bit tired and have a few light cramps. Which could mean either way so who knows x

That’s exactly how I felt yesterday ❤️❤️

I’m going to leave it till Saturday now (which will be 9 days post ET) so there will be no doubt and I can’t convince myself it’s wrong x

My test date is Saturday but I don’t want to go and have a blood test if it hasn’t worked ! It’s so so crap x

It is very crap, the whole situation is. I spent last night trying to work out when I could start again if this doesn’t work but then we all rely on clinics timelines not our own.

I agree, maybe do a First Response on Friday x

I feel I’ve wasted the whole of June as my clinic makes us do so many blood tests which does work but it’s so intense ... feel like I shouldMy have done it now

Hang in there! I had mine on Friday so maybe a day or 2 behind you, haven’t quite had the urge yet to test yet. Are you using the mindful IVF app? Someone on here recommended it to me and it’s really help me. As boring as it sounds too I’m doing anything I can, telly, reading, colouring, puzzles, online shopping! Fingers crossed for you xx

Ha to be fair my little boys are keeping me busy and work but you just can’t keep thinking of anything else can you !

I don't think I go more than 2 minutes without thinking about it :-)

Will you test early ?

No I don't think I will, plus I think I will know one way or another by the weekend anyway because I have a fairly predictable pre-period build up. I haven't ever been late either and the test date is day 2 of my planned period.

I’m a bad influence as I test every day to make sure the trigger is out - I have zero will power 🤣 🤦‍♀️ And also this was my 4th transfer and I can tell you there is nothing worse than going in to the clinic for a blood test to tell you what you already know if it’s not worked so I always test at home To prepare myself and if I get a BFP will then book in for the blood test - if not my clinic just move the OTD to 2 days later for home tests

I’m 5 weeks and had zero symptoms - in fact I spent from 2dp5dt for the next week googling IVF success rates with no symptoms 🤣

I’ve got a scan on Monday when I’ll be 6+1 so hoping we’ll find out if it’s twins then! Although after 7 losses in the last 3 years I’ll just be ecstatic to see a heartbeat 💓

Can you remember what your hcg levels were with your twins? At 8dp5dt mine were 159 but only got a clearblue 3+ at 16dp5dt so cant tell if we are in the twin range or not! 🤞🤞

At the beta 10dy5dt I had 350!!! Levels should have been around 30-50 I think not sure if that helps!

Oh wow! Now this has made me think hahaha Huge congratulations though that is so amazing, I am really happy for you!

It’s so tough. I’m 5dp5dt FET so one day behind you! I was ok until yesterday but now feeling desperate to test. Not helped by the fact that I have of course been googling and found lots of posts about getting positives at 4 or 5 dp5dt! Absolutely no symptoms at all either which makes me feel worried even though I know it shouldn’t. I’m working this week so that helps during the day but evenings are hard. I agree with everyone- I like the mindful IVF app and try to keep busy with reading, walking and watching Netflix! Good luck!

If it helps I have no symptoms, my sister said no news is good news but I really don't think there is an ideal situation here. If I had symptoms I'd think I was getting my period, because I don't it makes me doubtful of the whole thing, there is just no win here haha. Huge luck to you, xx

Yes totally agree! I’d probably be worried either way and over interpreting everything. Lots of luck to you too- fingers crossed! X

I think it’s still not too early so don’t give up! Try and wait a few more days if you can. My clinic wouldn’t even agree to a blood test at 8dp5dt as they said it was too early and might be inconclusive and that’s with a blood test. It’s really tough today though I can’t stop thinking about it!

Thanks I know ... stupid as it’s not even the first pee of morning which may have been better and more accurate and I didn’t use a first response either !! But just don’t feel it’s worked !

Hi hunn try not to feel so discouraged you still have till Saturday till you should test I know the temptation is literally like torture to test early. Some people get positives sooner than others though it just depends on your hcg level. I’m hoping that’s the case for you that your levels aren’t high enough yet! Good luck hunn ❤️ Xx

Thank you so much x yeah gonna wait until Saturday but don’t hold out much hope now xx hope your ok

Ha I am lucky as I have twins from a fresh cycle 2 and half years ago ! I tested on 7dy5dt only because I had blood but it was fine ! I don’t think I had any symptoms until 6 weeks ! Yeah I’ll defo do a test tomo I think as I’ll be 7dy5dt!! I wouldn’t go to the blood test unless I had a pregnancy test that was positive what’s the point x I feel a bit rough today but I think it’s just the drugs I am on !!

I have made my husband hide my tests somewhere now. So I literally can’t test! And he’s here all the time working from home so I can’t look for them. Seems to be working for now! X

Ah good luck. I had twins who are 2 and half now and just doing a FET. Test day is Saturday but I’ve tested today and yesterday and it’s a BFN unfortunately. I have one frostie left so will go straight ahead with down reg after this x xx wishing you lots of baby dust on this hard journey

Ahh twins, how lovely! I bet they keep you on your toes! Aww I’m sorry to hear that. I think I’ll wait until Sunday to test. It’s such an anxious wait, analysing every twinge that my body has! Trying not to overthink things. Great that you have another frozen, sending lots of positive vibes your way xxx
