6dp6dt and no idea

Today is 6 days after my transfer. The embryologist said that actually there is no difference between a day 6 and a day 5 so our embryo could be considered a standard day 5 blast. Normally I have some feelings about the cycle, and typically at some point I have a dream that tends to be right about whether the cycle has worked or not. It's a very clear cut dream, either I dream I'm bleeding or a fading HPT, or I dream a positive test.

Not such a thing this time. I'm blissfully unaware of what may be going on in there. I wonder if the kittens are working somewhat of a miracle in keeping me occupied and less in tune with my body. I have to say I love it. Not being stressed about the wait I mean. I'm enjoying waiting this time.

I was half considering testing on Sunday, it will be 9 days after a blast transfer, surely if I'm pregnant it'll show by then. The reasoning is that I will have to go in for beta if it's positive due to my history, so if I can get two blood tests before I leave on Thursday would be good. But then...they have hospitals in Italy, I can get my HCG tested there if needs to be. On the other hand, if the test is negative, I can stop the meds and get my period over with before we go to the seaside on the island after the wedding (oh, by the way, the wedding is in mainland Italy, and it's a couple of Italian friends getting married, so nothing too unusual for them!).

What would you do?

All good in Petland also, I know you wanted to know!

  1. I would go on and test...it will weigh too heavily on your mind if you don't. And you want to be able to go to the wedding and have a good time. You're a smart cookie!

    Being blissfully unaware is a blessing... :)

    Big Hugs..

  3. I needed to know BEFORE my beta. And I'm glad I did. Heck if I didn't I never would have had four nice days of thinking I might have beaten IF.

    I'm pulling for you. Take care!

  4. Oh, it sound like we're very nearly in the same space on this cycle! I'm feeling nothing - not good or bad, at this point (6dpIUI so a little behind you). I think to some extent it is about having other things to think about so it's good that you have that. On the other hand, I think back to other cycles where I was working full time and presumably had lots to think about and they were horrible. So, sometimes, maybe, you're just simply in a different space.

    I'm not a big HPT tester ahead of my beta, but in this case, I think I would test as well. Presumably you need to get in for a beta if it is negative too? My clinic doesn't want you to stop drugs without a confirmed negative beta.

    Jealous that you're getting to go to Italy! I miss being in Europe (I used to be there every 2-3 months for work with visits to friends often tacked on.)

    Good luck with deciding on what to do!

  6. Good luck sweetie I hope this is it for you!! I started off as a non tester and then transformed into a POAS addict. I would test because I would want and need to know before travelling. That's just me though.. do what makes it right for you! Fingers crossed!

  7. So glad that the kitties are working this magic on you!

    As far as the testing...that's a hard one. I probably would test, control freak that I am. I'd think that Sunday is not too early, and that way you can be prepared. How I am hoping for you!

    (By the way, I also have the dreams...though sometimes I'm only able to interpret them in retrospect!).

  8. Definetly POAS! You're right, it would show by then and it's not going to change anything, you'll just know sooner.

    Keeping my fingers crossed for you girl!

  9. I'd totally test! I'm a testaholic!!!

    Fingers crossed for you!

  10. It will be too hard to resist not to POAS. But when it comes to POAS, my nurse always tells me, a positive is a positive, but a negative doesn't always mean a negative (until they confirm it with the blood test).

    Good luck!!

  14. I love how zen you sound...

    I couldn't test before beta, too scared.

    If I had a vacation/wedding lined up, I would have tested...just to know.

    Everything crossed for you!

  17. I would test. It will definitely show up by that time and then you can get the betas done, instead of on vacation :) Hoping and praying!!!

  21. I guess I'm like most of the ladies...I would absolutely test before my beta! For me, I don't like to be caught off guard, and I prefer to know before I'm told. I'm guessing that in your heart, you really want to test!

  22. Go ahead and test! I'm so anxious to hear about the results!! I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you.

  23. Personally I hate POAS. But you need to do what you feel is right.

    Let us know the outcome!
