My RE said strict bed rest the day of transfer then I could go back to work with the normal restrictions -no jogging, heavy lifting, ect. For my first transfer I went back to work the next day - BFN. The second transfer my DH convinced me to take an extra day off - BFN. The third transfer I went back to work the next day - BFP with Twins.
The first two transfers we transferred 2 the third we transferred 3. We also changed the whole protocol for the third and it made a world of difference in our embryo quality. As a matter of fact initially all three took but 1 stopped developing -which honestly I am grateful for.
I guess the bottom line is do whatever will make you feel confident that you have done all you can do. That's all that matters!
Well first, congrats on making it to retrieval! Second, there is nothing for you to be nervous about. I have had 3 retrievals and they all went very smoothly. In my experience they were always able to retrieve more eggs than they thought based on the previous US's. With my retrievals I was asleep so you don't feel anything at all. Had some cramping afterwards and they will give you pain meds if you need them. I always went home and slept for a couple hours afterwards. Back to work the following day.
Just got back from my last appointment with my RE. Both babies look good. One HR is 171 the other is 176. One is measuring 8w3d the other 9w. I am 8w6d today. Doctor says everything looks good and to call my OB to make an appointment.
So a little rant, I called the OB and the lady who answered the phone was a total B@#$H! I just kept being super nice and by the end she was a little better but I mean what an A$$hole!
Anyway, I guess I will refrain from posting any more updates here. I want to thank all the ladies who supported me though out this incredibly long journey and wish you all the best of luck. I will continue to lurk to see how you all are doing View Thread
