Ghost - bedrest

Postby LYD10 » Fri Dec 02, 2011 10:50 pm

Ghost - what's the latest on bedrest. I will only be able to bedrest the day of transfer and that night. afterwards i have to go back to work.
it seems less and less clinics require bedrest - just from what i can tell on this forum. does this seem to be the case for you too?

The studies I've seen found no benefit from extended bedrest. My clinic requires little bedrest, less than you have planned.

My clinic requires 3 complete days of bedrest, and it is horrible!!! To me, it is the single worst physical part of IVF. We will soon be tring for number two and I am secretly hoping they have changed their recommendations since I last cycled a couple of years ago :).

I have heard many ladies say their clinic does not require any, or not much. Just don't overwork yourself, and you will be fine! Remember most people don't even know they are pregnant or potentially pregnant. Good luck to you!!!
After 7 attempts (2 negatives/3 miscarriages), we have TWO miracle boys!! If you would like to hear our story, please visit http://www.ivfsuccessstories.info. Never give up, it can happen for you!!

Lydia - I have to stay in bed for 30 min after transfer... then I go home with no restrictions. Pregnancy #4 right now!

I've heard embryo transfers described as putting a piece of dust into a peanut butter sandwich -- no way that's going to "fall out"!

Thanks, Leora! I am super excited about your pregnancy! I can't wait for your U/S!!
