Early Pregnancy

Early Pregnancy, especially after ART

You may not be sure yet, you might be in the middle of the two week wait or you may have just gotten your first faint pink line. Maybe it's your first beta and you're not sure what to make of it, not sure what the next step is...

If you're in the middle of the 2 week wait , you might want to read one (or both) of these:

  • Pregnancy Signs - Surviving the Two Week Wait and Typical Pregnancy Symptoms
  • That Rotten Two Week Wait

If you've just gotten your first faint pink line, you might be confused if:

  • You previously got hormonal injections containing hCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) and are not sure the hCG from the injection is already out of your system
  • You are feeling symptoms that you are getting your period
  • You're not quite sure if a faint pink line means positive or not

If you were given one or more injections containing hCG (e.g., Profasi, Novarel, or Pregnyl) you can get a false positive on a pregnancy test if you wait less than 14 days. It is possible to test in order to determine when the hCG is out of your system. A positive result obtained after two consecutive negative results, using early morning urine, will usually indicate that new hCG is being produced.

Symptoms of the impending arrival of the famous 'Aunt Flow' (AF, as it is called in infertility circles, or - in everyday terms - your period) don't necessarily mean that that's in fact what's going on. Bloating and light cramping are very common in early pregnancy. If you've just gotten a faint pink line, stop panicking :-) whether you feel cramping, nausea or nothing at all, it's likely that everything is just fine.

Does a faint pink line mean positive? Actually - unless you have hCG in your body from another source - yes. It doesn't say anything about the chances of a live birth, whether you're having multiples, how far along you are, etc., but it does mean that hCG is being produced.

hCG, unfortunately, will also be produced in a chemical pregnancy. A chemical pregnancy is when there is no longer a live embryo - there was one to begin with, but it stopped developing before it would have been visible on ultrasound. Usually such pregnancies are picked up early either by non-doubling beta tests (beta = beta hCG, the 'pregnancy hormone') or by an early ultrasound that does not show a gestational sac. This ultrasound can be performed as early as 2 weeks after your missed period. Frequently, even before the first ultrasound, a woman with a chemical pregnancy will experience bleeding.
