    Default Not sure when to test??

    Hi Guys,
    How are you all?? sorry i havent been posting ( only have posted 1 ) i just find it hard to talk about things, i dont like to think about it let alone write about it, but i know its good for me to let it all out, so here we go

    I am currnetly going through artifical insemination, i had a period on the 14th of october and cos i got them in the afternoon the doctor said i would count the 15th as day one, so on day 5 i started taking clomid and this is the first time i have ever done any sort of fertility drug, so was pretty scared and nervous, i took them from day 5 to 9 and was sick the whole time, terrible headaches and just the smell of food would make me dry reach, then we had an internal scan wednesday last week and found i had a good size egg on each ovary so the most we could get out of this month would be 2 babies, so we were sent home and was told on thursday night to give myself an injection (pregnyl) in the belly, and then we went in on saturday the 28th to get insemintated.



    So now its a waiting game, and its killing me it will be a week tomorrow since the insemination and its felt like a year, i am just wondering though wether or not to test a few days early, i am pretty worried as i am trying sooooooo hard not to get my hopes up but its really hard not too, i am looking into everything, if i feel sick i think straight away that it could be a pregnancy symptom, and so thats why i thought if i could do a test early then if its a negitive i can stop putting myself through this, but i am so scared of finding out what the results are.

    So what would you do??? test early or sit tight and wait??

    Hi mummy2chloe i had my transfer on saturday 28th too. It is so frustrating isnt it. So have you had any injections or drugs to take since Transfer? I have been having HCG shots, and my last one was today, so i know i cant test, because it would show up positive regardless.

    hey jemel,

    thats soooo cool, just think if we are both pregnant, we will be due the same time, oh god i hope we both get a positive result, i havent had any other injections other then the one i had to have on the thursday night before going to bed which was pregnly, i got artificially inseminated ( IUI i think is what the fertility specialist called it) is that what you had??

    it is sooooo great to know someone who is going through the exact samething as me, please feel free to email me anytime, i really would enjoy the company.

    Hi, yes its great to have someone exactly at the same stage as me. I had ICSI so they actually inject the sperm into the egg. We only got 1 egg this cycle, i am 34 and dont seem to get many eggs. Anyway, i had to have shots of HCG every 3 days from saturday, then i had tuesday, then today, so i cant even test, because it will say positive, because of the hormones, damn. I might test next week, but im not sure how long the drugs take to leave the system. My blood test is november 15th. Your test would show up correct now wouldnt it? I mean if you havent had any drugs since it, i know of people who have had their blood tests a week after. Im not positive if it would be the correct answer though, so dont take my advice only.

    hey,
    i think if i was to do a home pregnancy test a few days before my period ( due saturday 11th nov) like say wednesday or thursday it should show a result?? cos you can buy them pregnancy test that say you can test like 5 days before your period??

    so your test is on the 15th, you will have to let me know how you go, my fingers are crossed for you,

    i really really really hope we both get great results, its hard cos i try not to be to positive cos i dont want to get my hopes up to high, but i think its to late, i just cant stop thinking about it, i try and do things to make time pass quick and to try and get it off my mind but i just cant stop thinking and wondering what if i am pregnant and wonder how many babies 1 or 2, and thats why i want to do a test early so if its negative i can stop thinking about it, pick the pieces up and try again?

    not a patient person ( can you tell?? hahaha ) i hate waiting.

    Oh, i am far far from patient, dont worry i am probably like you!! I would say for sure, that if you took a test a few days before your blood test, it would definitely show up, i would even think it would now, especially if you arent taking any drugs like i had to.

    Goodluck with your test, your period is due on my birthday!! Lets hope we both get a positive!

    Have you had much cramping or period like pain?

    oh my god happy birthday for next saturday, mine is 20th dec so not to long ( not that i am in a hurry to get a year older)

    I have had heaps of like period pains and my belly is sore, like my little girl was trying to get up on the lounge with me and pushed down on my belly and it hurt so much, and laying flat on my back hurts as it feels like i am tearing or something, i was going to ring fertility doctor to tell him about it but they arent as bad anymore, only everynow and then i feel a little period pain, but it still hurts laying flat on my back, so i lay on my side now, is this a good thing or a bad thing getting cramps?? oh god i hope its a good sign, as i have been having the cramping since monday but there not as bad as they were,

    what a great birthday prezzie for you if you get a positive,

    Yes thats what i said to my husband about a birthday present. I would love to get a BFP for a present. I have two kids from previous marriage, and my husband has two also!! Anway, some people look at us like idiots when we have said we want one together, but i dont care. His only come every 2nd week, so its not full on. Anyway, a friend of mine on IVF is pregnant with twins, nearly ready to have them, and she said she had period pains right up until they did her blood test.

    cool, well bring on the cramps then i was so worried that it might of been something bad, hopefully its all good.
    and i wouldnt be worried about what other people think about you guys trying to have a baby together, as long as you and your partner are happy then thats all that matters, i think its great, good on ya, plus i am sure your kids and his kids would just love having a little baby to fuss over

    hey there sweetie,

    we really are at the same stage, cos i am really really starting to feel down and alittle negitive, i dont a home pregnancy test last night and it came up negitive, so i rang my fertility doc and he said i have done it way to soon, and even a naturally pregnancy wouldnt show up yet, plus i done it last nite and my wee was like water and he said there wouldnt of been hardly any hormones in it for even the best home pregnancy test to pick up on, he said so disregard the result i got last nite, and he said test when your 2 or 3 days over as i have to allow my body to fall pregnant, its only been 7 days since insemination no way a home pregnancy test will show it up ( apparently) but i still feel really upset, i cried all night last night and i feel that numb today. i am so scared i just know i am going to get my period

    Hi, i did a test, but i know i shouldnt have, because mine shows up positive, but thats only because of the hormones. My nurse said that if the ICSI has worked, i would be pregnant now, but i just wont know yet. I thought a test would show up now.. hopefully it will show up positive next week for you. Normally my period would come between today and the next 3 days. Ive been really down all day. I posted on another thread here, and other girls all said they were getting period like pains too. And they both got BFP. I just dont feel like i will get one though.

    guys I know it is really hard but even if it you are pg it may not show up on a home test, so as hard as it is you really just have to do your best to try and hang in there. I never ever do HPTs simply because if it does come up negative I just get myself upset unnecessarily and it could very well be wrong and if it comes up positive, well then I worry about getting my hopes up.

    The end of the 2ww after ART is particularly hard because it really drags and your mind has gone through all the possibilities and you will often find yourself doing a little self preservation - preparing for the worst.

    I hope you both have much success and am sending you tonnes of stickyvibes!!

    Thanks keen, and i think i need all the stickyvibes i can get, as i am feeling really down and negitive, i cant stop crying as i feel in my heart that we werent successful, and i am now looking for the signs that i am going to get my period, i really hate this and i feel so stupid and embarrased as i really thought it was going to work

    my mum and partner still believe there is a possibilty for this month as my period isnt due till the 11th and as they said, they will believe its over when they see that i have a period and until then they are still hoping and praying, i wish i had there attitude, but i just dont, i think by me doing that pregnancy test the other night and it being negitive has just made me lose all hope,

    but i really would like to thank you and jemel, as you have been so kindy and friendly and jemel you hang in there sweetie, not to long now till you do your test

    mum2chloe Please dont give up yet, as your family said, wait till your period shows up, till then, there is hope. My boobs are quite sore today, worse than yesterday. im not as flat today either. Cheer up and try to think positive, we both had down days yesterday by the sound of it, try to start this week off a bit happier, and try to hold onto a bit of hope xxx Im here if you need to chat.

    Unhappy

    hey guys,

    i done another pregnancy test last night and it still came up negitive you would think that if i was pregnant by now that it should of bought some sort of a line in the test?? i went back 20 mins later to try and see if i could make out even a faint line but i couldnt even get that

    so i think its time i have to just except that i wasnt successful, plus i have ever sign of getting a period, i dont think i will go and do another round straight away, think i will leave it till jan/feb as chrissy is all about my little girl so i dont want to be all stressed and stuff over christmas.

    Thanks everyone for being so great with me and your beautiful kind words of support was truely great,
