About 4 months into my pregnancy, but so far so good. I did acupuncture throughout my IVF journey (4+ years) and on our successful transfer we added acupuncture immediately before and immediately after. Was it the thing that did the trick? Who knows? But like M1 I found it to be relaxing, and the ability to take that time for myself during a time of uncertainty and doubt was empowering and comforting.

I do it. No success yet, but I find the experience relaxing which I really need to get through the process.

Does anyone go to a clinic several hours from their home? I did IVF in early 2020 that resulted in a successful fresh transfer. I have 7 embryos frozen at my fertility clinic, but we moved about 6 hours away. We are starting to talk about being ready to move forward with FET, but I don’t know if I should try to find a clinic to move the embryos to me or plan to travel so we don’t have to move the embryos.

Any thoughts from anyone on freezing embryos (with donor sperm) after freezing eggs? I only very recently froze eggs as I turned 35. When I started thinking about this a year ago (Single) my follicle count was very high but dropped by almost half in the past year. I was able to freeze 18 eggs. I now have a partner but it’s only been some months so I’m trying not to factor him into my previous plans. I had planned to do another cycle for embryos but using donor sperm. Thoughts on the risks?

Caught Covid a few days after successful IVF even after being extremely careful. I had fever for 18 hours and then it went away. Now this wait to know if everything is fine with embryo is brutal.

Hi all. Hubs and I have been trying to get pregnant for a few years with no luck. Tried IUI, no success. I’m scared of IVF and the toll it takes on your body but we may be looking at that soon.

I’m a relatively healthy-ish person but wondering what I can do diet-wise.
