I know it's still a bit early for me to test, but was just curious with those that received BFP's what was the earliest day you tested. And what symptoms did you experience leading up to the HPT BFP.

I had no symptoms. I had a faint + HPT at 5dp5dt (the first day I tried) I don't think that is the norm though.

Good luck to you! When are you thinking of testing?

I really want to wait as long as I can, but of course I think about testing every day. Someone told me during my last cycle not to POAS and just wait it out until my BETA, that way I could keep positive thoughts that I am pregnant. It's good advice for keeping positive, but I don't think I can hold out that long this time.

I think it depends on whether you did a day 3 or day 5 transfer. I was always torn as to whether to test. If it is positive I wanted to know right away so I could celebrate if it is negative I either wondered whether it was too early or would be devastated and depressed.
For my pregnancy now I had the feeling that AF was going to come but only slightly stronger feeling. I also had bleeding about 5-6 days before AF was supposed to show up which I guess was implantation bleeding. For both of my assisted cycles I also had vleeding but one was a chemical and one a straight BFN. Unfortunately you really just have to wait and see.

One giant dermoid cyst removed in 2001 along with my right ovary and tube.
TTC since we got married March 2008.
Finally got DH to agree to IVF in the spring of 2010. Got accepted to VFC for IVF July 2010. Supposed to start IVF in August 2010
Battling cysts from August to January 2011delaying start of IVF. On BCP, off BCP - nothing worked.
High FSH on bw in Dec 2010 - Dr. H decided to do cyst aspiration. I bled all over the clinic causing a big emergency and had to be stitched up. Not pleasant
IVF #1 - Jan/Feb 2011- Out of the 5 follicles only one egg was retreived. We got the call that it was abnormal and didn't fertilize on February 7, 2011.
Dr. H not recommending we do another IVF unless we consider donor eggs. I still tear up thinking of this conversation.
Feb 8, 2011 - a friend hears of my predicament and offers to be our egg donor.
Trying to link our cycles and the cysts return and need to be dealt with. Three months of lupron depot shots to put me in temporary menopause.
DE cycle #1 July/Aug 2011- Chemical - beta 10. Nothing to freeze
Wonderful friend is willing to do another cycle with a natural start.
DE cycle #2 September 2011 - 11 eggs collected, 7 day 3 embryos frozen. We decided to collect and do only FET because of my cyst problem and the difficulty in coordinating cycles.
FET #1- Dec 2011- everything is prefect - great looking lining, wonderful looking embryos- BFN
So sad. Decided to take a break until at least May/June while we move and settle into our new house
May 18, 2012 - missed AF - Surprise natural BFP! Is this even possible?
Beta # 1 - 1089 - approx 16 DPO- May 18,Beta #2- 5710 - May 22, Beta #3- 9767- May 24
June 6 - 7 wk u/s at VFC- It all looks good, measuring 7w, 1d and heartbeat approx 160. June 15- 8.5 w u/s at VFC - still looking good.
August 22 - Amnio, Sept 12 - Amnio results came back normal. We are having a girl! EDD- Jan 22, 2013
Baby girl born via c-section Jan 21, 2013. Our 6 lb 15 oz miracle is here!

With IVF#1, I tested at 9dp5dt and got my BFN, then again at 14dp5dt and then AF started that night. With my FET, I tested at 11dp5dt and saw the BFN again, AF started again at 14dp5dt. With my positive cycle I managed to wait until 13dp3dt (and then only tested because of a really intense baby dream) and saw my first ever lines. It was faint, but there. My beta at 16dp3dt was 109, and it turns out I'm one of the lower numbers to go through my clinic to end in a successful live birth. Next time around I've set a rule for myself that I will not test until the equivalent of 16dpo since they think that my hormone levels are slow to start with both estrogen and HCG. Good luck!

With IVF#1 the very first faint line showed up on 11dp3dt ( = 14 days after ER) . I tested evI rey day , so I know for sure there was no line before this.
My IVF#5 the first test I did was on 7dp3dt(10 days after ER) and it was positive. Since that was the first day I tested,I have no idea if I could have seen it before or not.
Both was 3dt, both was SINGLE pregnancy with no sign whatsoever that the second embryo even started anything. Still there was at least 4 days difference between detecting the pregnancy.
My first pregnancy resulted a healthy baby boy born at 40 weeks, and I am 16 weeks with my second baby, so obviously it is a viable pregnancy.

I think there is no point to test earlier then 10 days after retrieval, but do not get down if you see -. Take it as you checked that the trigger out of your system.
If you a POAS addict like me, you can test morning urine every day after the 10th day, to see when the line is going to show up. However do not get disappointed unless you are at 16th day post ER and still nothing. And still there is hope. Many women reports - htp even on the same day when they get + beta blood test.

Both BFP's 6dp3dt after testing out trigger. Very faint on FRER but both darker by day 7. BFN on cheapies and clearblue until day 8. But I believe most people are more in 9-11dp3dt zone.

On my negative cycles, once talked to RE on day 11 and he said still too early for most and that hpt's vary so much even within brand.

It's not over until beta but I usually began to face reality (for my own sake I planned my little f you BFN parties around this time so i had something that would never replace a BFP but still could look forward too - usually a specific meal, a bottle of wine, bubble bath up to my neck and some pity sex ;) Had usually cried it out by day 14, enjoyed the negative as best I could by indulging in the "forbiddens" and had planned next cycle of hope, which always helped.

Good luck!!!! This is a numbers game and your number will come up! Sound advice I got from good friends who had gone through this before me, ALL with healthy babies. They were right ;) almost 10 weeks pregnant off third try.

Thanks Tejat!

You are so right, it is a numbers game. I am so happy that it worked out for you this cycle and I know I will get my BFP one day, in the mean time I guess I will live life to the fullest and stay on track for a healthy happy life, no matter the outcome!
