Worried and wanting to test during my Two week wait!

Hi Everyone!
I am new to this site and in the middle of my two week wait. It was my first true IVF cycle. What I mean by that is I actually ended up having an IUI cycle that at the very last minute was converted to a retrieval and a embryo transfer due to a high number of follicles and my initial overresponse to the Gonal F. That was back in May and out very first attempt at fertility.At that point 2 embryos were transferred-not the greatest quality-I believe it was a 5 and a 6 grade cell with fair symmetry. Unfortuntely it did not work and insurance made us do two more IUI-both unsuccessful. My RE said I am a great responder to the medication and that is half the battle; however I am getting so down that this IVF may not have worked! I am such a positive person, but it's hard to keep calm during this 2ww. This cycle, I was on BCP for 21 days that overlapped with Lupron injections. Then I stimed with Gonal F.  On the day of retrieval , Saturday Aygust 22, they retrieved 8 follicles. All 8 fertilized. We did a 3 day transfer and put back a perfect 8 cell Grade A with Good symmetry and a 7 cell Grade B with Fair symmetry. Also they transferred a 5 cell grade B with fair symmetry as well. So total 3 embryos transferred! My RE seemed convinced it is going to work since the quality of my eggs got better by doing a true IVF cycle. Now ir is 10 days post ovulation and 7 days post transfer. I want to go out and buy a pregnancy test now ! I am thinking of testing tomorrow. Do you tink it is too soon?? Also-based on my journey has anyone experienced the same kind of cycles? My blood  test is next Wednesday, Sept 8th and I cannot wait to then to test. I did not test during my first round of fertility and learned that that first negative really hits you hard! The subsequent IUI's I tested and it softened the blow of the "phone call" with the BFN!! My Huband and I will keep trying if this didnt work-but I hope and pray that it did! I think I have some syptoms-but that progesterone really can fool you!! Especially the injections!! So-I am open to any suggestions, encouragement or advice! In turn-if I can help anyone out there-I'd love too!

hey there, welcome!! you know i am not super informed when it comes to iui or ivf.  there is a forum here titles fertility, and it is filled with women who are or have experienced the same as you.  i do know with a so called normal 2ww, 10dpo is oftly early to expect a positive test.  you have two options, you can wait (id do this one!!! ) or take a test but maybe be disappointed should it be too early and you get a bfn.  im sorry i dont have anything real to offer you, but good luck!!
