FET day advice please

Hi everyone, this is my first post. And my first round of NHS funded IVF. I'm 37, low AMH/low progesterone but other than that unexplained infertility. We have been trying for 4 loooooonnngggg years. Had EC on Friday only got 3 eggs 😞 But all 3 fertilised with ICSI. Having the day 5 transfer this afternoon. Does anyone have any hints/tips/advice for me? Thank you ❤️ Xxxx

Congratulations on your two blastos! You sound just like me (but we only had 2 eggs!) and I'm now 17 weeks,

2WW- try not overthink it (easier said than done!) Eat healthily and drink lots of water (avocado, almonds, think there's something about pineapple that's often quoted). I was lucky as it was the summer holidays so I was off work and just chilled with the cat, went out for lunch & coffee (well decaf tea!) with friends and kept busy to keep my mind off it. (& I tried really hard not to google everything which is nearly impossible)! Oh and avoid hot baths I was told!!!

Make sure you have a laugh after the embryo transfer- there was a study that this worked! I went out for lunch with my mum and kept it all lighthearted and jokey. Watch something funny on the. I also had been having acupuncture so had a session on implantation day (when I was full of cold and cough!)

Sure you'll get lots of better advice than mine from people on here!

Good luck. Sending lots of baby dust. X

Thanks Pips! I had heard about the laughter thing so shall be doing that too! I've just started getting cramps so a bit scared my period is on it's way. I'm taking the crinone pessaries each night since egg collection so hoping it's a side effect of that instead 😬 Congratulations on your BFP!!! xxx

I had horrible wind and cramps on cyclogest (& other side effects!!) Was so glad to stop taking it.

Good luck! Laugh lots! x

Good luck with the 2ww.

Cutting a pineapple into 5 sections and eating a slice a day (including the core) can help aid implantation. Also a small amount, around half a dozen Brazil or walnuts daily.

Relax and keep yourself as busy as you can, watching films/box sets, meeting up with friend, wrapping xmas pressies etc 🙂

Good luck 😘Xxx
