bed rest after embryo transfer

Postby incubator » Mon Aug 19, 2013 1:10 pm

Hello ladies! I have invaded the pg board to hopefully get some advise for my FET next month. I was wondering (for those of you who were successful) how long after your transfer you were on bed rest?
Thank you so much for any input!

I was on bed rest for a little more than 24 hours. I was on summer vacation so after the first 24 hours I moved around more often but was still able to take it easy.

Thought I'd post an update! The clinic I went to recommend just taking it easy for a few hours and then walking to increase circulation to the uterus so that's what I did! It worked! I'm almost 6wks pg and sono at 5w1d showed two sacs! I go tomorrow afternoon to see heartbeats! We are overjoyed!
Good luck ladies!
