Here we go again. Started BC again for a transfer in May. It’s our last embryo and my wife is pretty anxious about it. Not gonna lie, me too. I internalize anxiety more though. Any tips for both of us on dealing with the stress?

Sending all the sticky embryo vibes!! Always my go to recommendation for the TWW… have a plan for the transfer if it works and if it doesn’t. Know what your next steps will be in either case. If you get bad news, and you already know your plan, you have a place to still move forward. Fertility feels the hardest when you don’t feel like you’re moving forward.

And that “plan” could be as simple as “we’ll set up a consult with our RE to hear recommended next steps, confirm what he’d recommend to change in protocol in another retrieval/transfer, etc”

Like the comment above, yes have a plan ahead of time if it doesn't work. And just try to stay distracted in the meantime. Keep yourself busy by doing fun things if you can. That's really the most you can do! Good luck to you and your spouse in this!
