Hi Mumtaz
Welcome to HealthcareMagic
A pregnancy test is recommended 14 days after the embryo transfer. It is a blood test to estimate serum hCG levels. If the test is positive, a pregnancy confirmation scan is performed two weeks later. If unfortunately pregnancy doesn't occur then you may get periods. If you are having cramps and pink discharge consult another doctor (if your doctor is not available ) in the hospital. No ultrasound cant pick embryo at this stage. Take care.

you just need to relax and do not be so apprehensive. a serum beta hcg (blood test for pregnancy ) is done 14 days after embryo transfer. it s then repeated after 48hours if the level is positive. the cramping that you had might be nothing or it may be that your embryo has not implanted and the pregnancy could be a biochemical one. however it is better you do not jump to any conclusion and just wait for the beta hcg levels.
