Dear IVFers,


This is my first IVF (mini) and today I am 8dp3dt. I transferred one (the only one I had) 8 cell beautiful embryo. On 6dp3dt I took a cheap $ test with FMU and it was BFN. Then, the same evening, I took HTP Answer (25mIU) and it came out very faint positive (Im posting the picture). On 7dp3dt, I took another HTP Answer with FMU and it looked exactly the same as the one the night before, very faint positive. The test lines from both Answer tests were very light red color. I decided not to test until my beta this Friday.


I would like to know how many days after Embryo transfer did you get your first BFP and was it faint or solid?


Also, do you think my test is BFP or could it be a trigger (Ovidrel 250 from 11 days before)?


Thank you and baby dust to you all!!!

I got my first squinter at 5dp5dt :) It didn't get darker until two days later - when you have a really sensitive test it still takes a while for your HCG to get high enough to get a real dark line.  In the end your beta will tell you a lot more....


Congrats on the BFP and I hope you get a strong beta!!!!


(I think your trigger would be gone by now - usually a week or so from what Ive read )

Mine showed up 5dp5dt (was twins) and I never found the lines getting darker to be that accurate on the expensive tests believe it or not.  I had my best results from these cheap test strips I had picked up at early pregnancy tests.    I hope your beta is positive as well :-)

I got my first squinter at 7dp5dt. I tested 3 days in a row, all were faint but did get a little darker every day (but still very light).

I would say the trigger should be out by now.


I think you're preggers...congrats momma! Hope you have a nice strong beta

It also depends on the time of day you take the test.  They (doctors) say that the HCG levels are highest in the mornings, so it is best to use the first urine you have in the morning.  I pray for your BFP, Good luck!

I got my first squinter 4dp5dt and it was twins. Believe it or not fmu was not the strongest for me, evening time around 6 after work was strongest for me. I used frers, then after about 7dp I switched to cheap Walmart 95 cent tests. Mine did get darker each day. Congrats to you, and best of luck on a great beta!

Thank you all for your responses. This helps tons in this 2ww rollercoaster. My beta is tomorrow, so I pray they confirm BFP. I will keep you posted. As far as for my symptoms, cramping, sore boobs and tiredness in the evening but in the moring all of the symptoms disappear. I may be one of those who gets higher hormone levels in the evening
