You could be pregnant, but it may me too early to test. Wait 48 hours and do another test. Try to relax and eat healthy foods.

After embryo transfer the two week wait (TWW) is the most difficult time in a woman’s journey to pregnancy with IVF.

Day 12: hCG trigger injection to induce ovulation.

Day 13: Time between trigger shot and embryo retrieval is about 36 hours.

Day 14: Ovulation and egg retrieval.

Day 15: Fertility assessment.

Day 17: 3-day transfer.

Day 19: 5-day transfer.

Day 23-27: Begin home pregnancy testing early morning urine (HPT)

Day 28: Blood test done at doctor’s office.

Not all IVF cycles follow the exact pattern as outlined above. Women who suffer from infertility have often positive HPT later as their cycle does not necessary follow this one. So, take your time and relax.

If your HPT is negative before you quantitative beta-hCG blood test, that does not mean that you are not pregnant. It just means your cycle is a bit off and you need to wait a little bit longer. When in doubt, call your doctor for support.
