I also had to lay down and relax for 30 minutes after the transfer.
After that my husband drove me to my acupunture appointment, then home to rest and relax for 2 days.
I did move about and get up for bathroom visits.
I am now pregnant with twins.

5 days seems very very excessive!!

doddo - great news on the NT!!!!! I am very happy for you. I don't understand why your OB is making you wait 4 weeks for another u/s. Does he/she feel that this doesn't need to be monitored closely? Or did they say it's not something to be too concerned about? tigersuz - welcome!!!! I had a hard tim...

doddo - I had both the NT and CVS testing done on Dec 26th. The NT is very easy and the Doctor will tell you right away if the thickness at the back of the neck on the baby is within normal parameters. With the NT they usually do some blood tests that tell you in certain markers are present. Those r...

I did acupunture this time and expecting twins.
This is my 4th IVF, I did not do it for the first 3 and they did not work.

I am now 12weeks 4 days and I still go for the acupunture once a week. I am very very luckly though my insurance covers it.

I swear by it!!!
