Hpusateri,is it red or brown ?is it a lot?is too damn early to be AF ,my suggestion for you is to get yourself a super sensitive hpt and take it,in case you are pregnant to get ur progesterone levels checked out bcs of the bleeding.
I know a bfn is really really heartbreaking but I believe in our cases testing early can help in case we are having a chemical pregnancy we will know and the doctor can take a different approach in the future.

Hpusateri, I agree that it sounds way too early to be AF. A good friend of mine had enough bloody discharge at implantation to think it was AF (she even texted me to tell me her cycle had failed) and then got a positive a day or two later. So keep us posted, and I will be hoping hard that this is good news!

Afm, had our second ultrasound last Friday, everything looked good. Still in there, heart rate of 169. I don't know if I'll ever get past the point of waiting for the other shoe to drop (I'm hoping it happens once I make it past 13 weeks, which is when I lost the twins, but we'll see). So far so good.

It was red. It seems to be just that 1 time event so far, with nothing new today other than the faintest clearish/pink mark on my liner just a bit ago. Under normal circumstances, I probably wouldn't have even noticed it, it was so faint. Last night was just when I wiped after peeing and then a small drop after that on a liner. I do still have some occasional mild cramping so far today though, nothing unbearable, not even to the point of wanting to take any pain relief.
I was debating on whether or not to call the IVF clinic, I am leaning towards waiting to see if it happens again...
Which sensitive HPT tests have you ladies had luck with? I will test tomorrow morning.

I hope the other shoe never drops for you!

I would use a FRER (the original with the pink lines)...I could not believe how low it will pick up hcg. I was showing a faint positive with an hcg blood level of 7-10 (when they claim that most tests don't detect less than 20)

I’m taking PIO injections. No aspirin on my protocol.
I called in sick already for my second job for weds, I only work there weds and sat, but it’s an emergency vet hospital so it’s pretty physically demanding. But my M-F job is administrative so that should be ok.

Hmmm pio shots should be ok for ur progesterone levels but vaginal progesterone is the best,of course always talk to your doctor.I also bled while pregnant with all of my pregnancies except my chemical,no known reason,with this one I had a bad bleeding episode and it was fine.

Eeeee! So excited for you, Hpusateri My clinic said pio shots are the gold standard for consistency, so if that's what you're on, they might just supplement. Keeping my fingers extra crossed.

My clinic seemed to base it off how the transfer was done. I do have a ton of suppository progesterone because they were planning on a fresh transfer, but then when a FET was decided upon, they switched it to injection.
I guess I will have to wait and see what they say on Friday
