I would just eat healthy lots of fruit and veg and lots of protein. However, i also did a couple of sessions of acupuncture leading to transfer and also on the day, before and after transfer. Currently in the 2ww.... xx

I was very nervous, anxious, scared, dare to dream that it could actually work. Acupuncture helped a lot to relieve the stress...

Hi there. Try to eat clean, drink lots of water, cut down / out alcohol and caffeine, get enough sleep. Generally be good to your body. I take Wellwoman conception multivitamin as well. Very best of luck for August xx

Thanks for the reply :)

Hiya I would try and eat healthy. I drank loads of water and ate Brazil nuts and drank pomegranate juice. I had accupuntre beforehand and just tried to be relaxed!! Good luck x

Definately going to do Brazil nuts and pom juice, I started it during stims as I ended up doing a freeze all cycle, seen some videos on YouTube about pineapple core lol think I'll do everything haha

Hey I had a FET in April ... I had acupuncture and a session of reflexology. I tried to eat clean as much as I could and cut down to one coffee a day. I put a hot water bottle on my tummy each night and listened to Zita West pre transfer hypnosis to help me sleep. After transfer I had 5 Brazil nuts a day and drank pomegranate juice (just as that’s what people said lol). I then listened to the Zita West post transfer hypnosis and the 2 week wait one. I was finding it hard to be positive but they really, really helped me!!! The advice for the 2ww for me was to carry on as normal but a “little less”. That’s what I did, I went to work but kept evenings free and weekends clear. I watched funny films and kept my feet warm. I didn’t test early and I kept on here for support!! It worked and I’m 15 weeks! I Have had lots of dramas since my positive but we are still going strong. All the best chick xx

Aww congrats! :) :) So you kept having one coffee per day even after transfer? What about exercise before?

lolita83 in reply to Hidden

Yeah I have carried on with one coffee a day as you are allowed so many mg and the clinic said one was more than fine. It depends how you feel about it, a lot of women would say I shouldn’t I’m sure. I did lots of exercise before - totally carried on as normal x
