Hey You

Knock it off.  You are really getting on my nerves.  No not my readers but the embryoes inside of me. 

Mutt and Jeff if you are still inside of my uterus will try to be more consistent?

This on and off again symptoms is really driving me batty.  One minute I know for sure you are still in there and the next time I think about you and what I should hopefully be feeling you aren't doing anything to my body.

I'm hoping that you decided to stick around but you are causing me to have big doubts.

When I got up to feed you your PIO shot I knew for a fact you were there with the twinges of pain.

Now when I got up at 10 am, not even my breasts hurt.

Readers, I know it is too soon to test.  I'm only 5 days past a 5 day transfer.  The only way I could possibly show positive on a hpt is if there were three embryoes in there or I had residual from the HCG shot or in the case of some women if I  had free flowing HCG in my system more than the average female and yes there are some out there like that.  But I'm being realistic guys, even with my two IVF my beta showed less than a 1 each time.  I normally have very little HCG in me.  When I test it will most likely be blank for a while to come.  Why do I say this?

Well with good reason.  My new RE clinic, the one in Seattle knows my body well enough through all the testing I went through to know that I'm more likely to get a FALSE NEGATIVE before the Beta on Monday.    I was even told by the doctor just after transfer was completed to not test because he said was more afraid of me getting a FALSE NEGATIVE.

How could they possibly know this?  Well I've been pregnant with twins before and back then the hpts were Negative and my Beta was positive and I carried to 10 weeks 6 days.  It is all in my records.

Here is a good LINK to show you when I should test at the earliest.  Any testing before that date will yield for ME a negative.  Tomorrow I'll test and I just might get a faint line, MIGHT mind you.

Here is the chart for the 5 day transfer but there is also on the link above a chart for the 3 day transfer.

5-Day Transfer

Days Past
Transfer (DPT)
Embryo Development
One The blastocyst begins to hatch out of its shell
Two The blastocyst continues to hatch out of its shell and begins to attach itself to the uterus
Three The blastocyst attaches deeper into the uterine lining, beginning implantation
Four Implantation continues
Five Implantation is complete, cells that will eventually become the placenta and fetus have begun to develop
Six Human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) starts to enter the blood stream
Seven Fetal development continues and hCG continues to be secreted
Eight Fetal development continues and hCG continues to be secreted
Nine Levels of hCG are now high enough to detect a pregnancy


  1. I got false negatives with all 4 of my pregnancies, it is crazy how that happens.

    1. I knew I wasn't alone out there. Sorry you went through the same hell.

  2. Wow, sorry to hear that your body doesn't respond well to HPTs... still hoping you get a positive though!

    1. Hoping at least my beta shows something

  3. I had very low betas with all of my pregnancies, the ones that made it and the ones that didn't. However, with a sensitive test it should show a positive the day of your beta :) In which case, what the hell is the point? (at least that was always my reasoning).

    1. exactly, why bother by beta day!

  4. How annoying to have symptoms all over the place. Hoping they're sticking around!

    1. They had better or I'm going to be one angry bitch

  5. I remember it well. I used to plan something really, really nice I could do if I got a BFN.

    Don't test. You don't feel any more certain about anything, just more frantic. And you end up spending a fortune on pee sticks. You probably will cave at some point before you're meant to though. Good luck.

    1. Already caving. Hey you need a follow button on your blog. I miss having your blog in my feed each day.

  6. Ugh! Fingers tightly crossed for good news for you!

  7. Thinking of you and praying for good news!!
