1st ivf w/ icsi. Two embryos put back on 3dt. Both were 8cell with minimal fragmentation.
Bleeding bright red blood on days 9,10,11 past 3dt with no clotting and AF type cramps. No bleeding on Sunday (12dp3dt) and a few spots on Monday morning, but that was it. I tested with HPT on late 9,10,11 with +tve results. I only tested because I was sure it was over since I was bleeding. Surprise!
Beta yesterday came back at 64- 16dpo. Nurse said she was cautiously optimistic (this must be their standard phrase) lol. But they wanted to see over 100. Retest tomorrow but I need to wait until Thursday for results since its done at an outside lab and not covered by my cycle. Um, ok…
I asked nurse what my progesterone was, cause I was worried I was bleeding due to supplementation not being enough. Her response:
“We do not test progesterone levels, it is not necessary as we are supplementing nature with the Crinone.” (I’m taking Crinone 1x day in the AM)
So my question to you all is, is not testing the progesterone normal? Should I ask for this? Do you think I have a chance still? And, could the bleeding be from one expelling??
And to top things off, my best friend who never wanted children is literally giving birth as I type this. I can’t be there since I’ve already missed work due to being on self induced bedrest for my bleeding.
Any thoughts or comments are appreciated. Nervous as heck and I want this embie to stick!!
