How many days after your ET did you get a BFP??

I know it's bad to test at home (before the blood test) but most of us will due to anxiety. So, I am trying to get some information for all of us girls in our 2 week wait.

1. How many days after your ET did you get a BFP?
2. Was it a blood test or urine test?
3. What type of ET was it? Fresh or Frozen?

Thanks!

9 days after a fresh 5 day transfer I got a VERY faint BFP on a HPT (like barely there). Two days later was my blood test...same. The 2WW is torturous but I can't imagine risking getting a false negative because I was too impatient. I knew that most blood tests take place on day 9 after 5dt, unfortunately my day 9 fell on a Saturday so I knew that I had a better shot at an honest test result.

MENTS I got an extremely faint line 5 days after my 5 day fresh transfer. But we transferred 3 and all 3 stuck (currently 33 weeks with twins, we unfortunately lost one at 12 weeks). I think it's rare to get a BFP that early though.

***MENTS*** We did a fresh 5 day transfer and got a BFP at 7 days. My blood test was the next day at 8 days and it was positive as well. We are currently almost 17 weeks. ***END MENTS***

I waited until 9 days post 5 day fresh transfer and got a bfp. Blood test confirmed positive beta on day 14. My RE told me to test NO earlier than 10 days post transfer because the trigger shot I got could cause a false positive. I tested day 9, 10, 11, 12 and 13 just to be sure and got dark positive lines.

My RE would only do a blood/beta test at 14dp5dt. I POAS at 9dp5dt and got a faint pink line. I tested the next few days and the line kept getting darker. My beta was positive and very high. I ended up pregnant with 3 embryos, so likely had lots if hcg. I ultimately had b/g twins. This was from a fresh cycle. Good luck to all in your 2WW!

LOTS OF MENTS................ With our final transfer after a nearly 6 long year struggle, I tested at home only 4 days after transfer of 2, 5 day blasts. It was a frozen transfer using donor eggs. It was the first BFP I had ever seen. We now have 18 month old twin boys :-)

I got a faint positive 4 days after our ET and then a thicker line on day 5. I had bought the thin strips that are supposed to test for hcg at lower levels. I also used them to watch my hcg level drop after the trigger shot so I really knew that my positive test was positive...the test strips were cheap on amazon so I could justify doing it.

Sorry forgot to say it was a fresh 5 day ET with pregenetic testing.

MENTS... I got my first ever BFP today, 7dp5dt. Beta is still 4 days away. I know a lot could change. This is the first BFP we have ever seen. I had a 5 day transfer with ivf icsi due to MFI.

I transferred 2 fresh embryos on day 3. I did not test at home because I started spotting one week after (the same spotting I had for every month of the the 2.5 years I had been TTC) so I just assumed I wasn't pregnant. I then had my beta 11 days later and it was positive (and high). Ments I am 21 weeks with twin boys.
