Negative HPT, but High Basal Body Temperature

Post by DCRunningMama » Fri Feb 11, 2011 3:06 pm

I am 14 day past retrieval, 9 days past 2 day transfer of two 5BB hatching blastocysts that were "great quality." (My clinic is supposedly very conservative with rating embryos).

I have take 4 different HPTs today. EPT, First Response, Answer, and CVS First Response. All negative.

The weird thing is that my basal body temperature is REALLY high (for me): 98.42. My luteal phase bbt is usually 97.4-97.6. My temperature during my luteal phase this cycle has been 97.8-98.1 and then it made the big jump to 98.42.

Is there any chance I am actually pregnant?

When is your beta? You can get a negative HPT and still be pregnant at 14dpo. Good luck!!!!!!!!!!!

Are you on progesterone? That will increase your basal temperature. That said, it isn't negative until negative by blood. Good luck to you!
