I hope you're all doing well in your own IVF journey. I'm after some advice if poss please! 😁 Thank you in advance if you can help XX
I had my scan on Mon (11th Feb) and my lining was 8.5mm and ready to proceed with my FET, which has been booked for a week today (22 Feb).
🌟In the lead up, is there anything I should be doing to help (either with diet or other?)
I am having accupuncture and am eating a good diet, no caffiene, alcohol etc and am taking vitamins and folic acid (along with the IVF meds) and I know I should be doing gentle exercise only.. is there anything else?
🌟Post transfer, what should I be doing/ not doing?
Some reasearch says to act normally during the 2ww, but others say to rest if possible (but not to lie down literally all day). I think last time I did a mix of rest 💆♀️ and gentle walking 🚶♀️/normal non stressful or strenuous jobs, but I did take a fortnight off work. This time I have taken a week off with possibly more, but wondered if there's anything diet wise I can be doing? I've got accupuncture booked in for before and after the transfer.
It's vague but I think I remember you're not supposed to have hot baths after transfer... Is that right?! Can I use a hot water bottle on my tummy before transfer?
I have been through 2 cycles already (and I'm very lucky to have a little girl 💗 from my 2nd cycle, who is nearly 2 now). This is my first FET (and I have a shocking memory and can't remember all that I did last time!) 🙈 I remember something about eating a tonne of 🍍 pineapple?!! 😂
If you have read this far 📖🤓, well done! And thank you if you're able to help!!😍 Lots of luck to you all whatever stage you are at 🍀🍀🍀🍀🍀🍀🍀🍀🍀🍀 xxx
