Round two

Hello everyone. I’m going back to Turkey after Christmas to do a frozen embryo transfer. I have three embies stored. Decided on a single transfer again. My first fresh transfer resulted in a chemical pregnancy.

With the fresh transfer I carried on life as normal but this time I want to do things a little differently. So any tips on what to eat, drink and otherwise would be appreciated.

Love and hugs to you all x

Hi sanchia46. Oh how exciting, after the heartbreak of your chemical pregnancy – obviously you will be anxious too! I think most of my ladies tend to take it easy for a few days after FET, and don’t do any lifting or strenuous exercise. Otherwise, live life as normally as you can while you are waiting to test. A good diet to have at this time consists of variety, however, I have listed some of the “good” things to have: Carbohydrates - Wholegrain bread and wholemeal pasta, oatmeal, brown rice. All fresh vegetables especially raw or steamed. Over boiling rids them of vitamins and minerals, pineapple juice, apricots, potatoes, all fruit and honey, beans, chickpeas and lentils. Protein - Organic meat if possible, poultry, fish, Milk and hard cheese, nuts and seeds. Fat - Extra virgin olive oil and sunflower oil, avocado and peanut butter, mackerel, sardines, nuts (especially Brazil and walnuts), seeds, sweet corn and sweet potatoes. The things to avoid are too much sugar, processed foods, ready meals, butter, ice cream etc. A little is OK, but not all the time. Drink plenty of water and only a little tea and coffee if feeling deprived. Cut right down or right out – alcohol and smoking. Oh and don’t forget the Folic Acid and Vitamin D! Hope this helps and all the best with the FET. Diane

No advice really, I believe in moderation and not putting too much pressure on yourself along with trying to be as healthy as possible! Best of luck for your next round!xx
