Did you take any time off during your embryo transfer? Whichever the choice, did you feel it was the right one later on?

Mine is actually today! I’m taking of the rest of this week and all of next week. I’m sure it’s overkill but work can be toxic and stressful, and I just don’t want to surround myself with that and be overly stressed out during that time.

Crapshoot for me too. First one I went right back to work. Then I took 2 days for a few, there was one where I literally look several weeks FMLA. Honestly it made no difference for me. My RE says mainly just don’t stress too much for the first couple days. If taking time off creates more stress than just going to work, then just go to work.

I took the day of my transfer off (FET), and traveled for work the next morning. This worked well for me, and the travel helped keep my mind off of things!

Mine was on a Friday so i took off Friday and then went back to work on Monday. My next one is on Wednesday and I’m going to take Tuesday and Wednesday off then go back to work Thursday.

Hope the transfer goes well for you today SA!

I took the transfer day off, slept and relaxed all evening. Then worked from home for the rest of the week. (This was when I was typically traveling to another state). Went for light walks - all very chill, mentally and physically, lots of circle and bloom meditations and watching comedy shows and movies.

I had one fresh transfer that did not implant, followed by a frozen transfer that worked. Took same approach with both. No regrets.

What a great story, I'm so happy it was successful!

I took the day off. Plant on the couch and watch some comedies. Takes the stress out of the day and helps you relax!

I take a couple days off before just to be able to shut work off and mentally prepare myself. I was lucky to have both my transfers on weekends so then I took 3 days off in addition. I think relaxing before is also as important as after.

Thank you, that's very helpful advice to wind down before in addition!
